What Matters, What is Important
I remember my mother trying to teach me as a child about wants and needs and of course everything was a WANT! I have been doing that experiment on myself lately with trying to find a simpler life. I am also trying to find that naturalness of my whole being again.
Natural . . .Nourish . . .
The Tough Questions
- Do you not know what you really want?
- Do you know what you want, but do not know how you go about getting it?
- Is it a want or a need?
- Are you in control in getting what want or need?
- Are you not in control of what you want or need?
For me it is about connecting with myself from within to determine a want or a need, to make choices and to take action! I have been thinking about what is no longer working and/or no longer serving me in living my life, especially living the life I want. I have to adjust and shift as well as change or remove certain aspects of my life. It is an ongoing and ever changing process too!
Sometimes it comes down to the basis of what I will do and what I will not do! I realize there are things in my life that I have to do. Once done though I can get back to doing what I want to do!
Sometimes less is truly more! For instance, I need to do less by being more focused on the task at hand. I feel more engaged and more energized. I feel more satisfied and more fulfilled. I feel better about what I am doing and not doing it half arsed. I am focusing on what matters and what is important to me!
Sometimes you have to work your other core! In listening to my inner voice, following my heart and trusting my gut instincts, I am able to discover what drives, motivates and energizes me as a person. It is so important to believe and trust in myself! It matters to experience the process and not worry about the next thing or the final end results. I feel so much better about what I am doing when I release or surrender to the process and just let it unfold!
