Sometimes in the harried, hustle and bustle of the “busYness’ of life, we forget what our true “business” of life is really about.
So – just what IS your life ‘business’ (aka:current assignment)? Maybe you need to stop for a minute to remember! Smile as you think about thegoal you are working so hard for, and the rewards it will bring when you have accomplished it!
We so often get caught up in time schedules and deadlines to be met, kids to carpool, books to write or review, conferences to plan, tasks left undone. We forget to stop and remember what our we are working so fast and furious for – what the end goal is. And the REAL goal is the ONLY goal worth being busy for!
The busy life doesn’t have to always be harried and full of distress. It can and NEEDS to be a life full to the brim, filled with JOY!
Take a minute today – even if you are in a place that has taken our Alaska winter and snow (Hint: we WILL gladly take it back!) Go outside, take a deep breath in. Smell it? Even if it is minus 10, Spring is on its way! Daylight savings time starts this week!
Bundle up, or grab your surfboard and live outside as much as possible. Sun, snow, rain, fresh air are all great healing forces that feeds our inward joy. They change the poisoned feelings from within to a GUSH of pure, life-giving joy that will be contagious to those around you.
Remember, too, that as you go about your busy day and week ahead that the REAL healing of body, mind and spirit comes from within. So go outside, take that deep breath in (I just did – even tho’ it’s 5 degrees F!) Carry on with your BUSINESS, your goal in sight, your heart filled with joy! Happy Monday!
