There are things that happen that make no sense.
The ‘why me’s. The ‘oh no not that’s. Senseless suffering of innocents…to abrupt loss of innocence.
It can force a person to wondering. Even the most upbeat individual can take a hit and for a moment feel like staying down….if only to lay there and look at the sky and ask “show me why”
It’s moments like this when intimacy deepens, when strength expands, when hope bubbles, and wisdom develops.
Have you ever asked yourself “what can I do?” hoping for an answer, a beacon, a way to act that can make everything ok…Then nothing comes?
I think when you ask the question of what can I do and don’t receive an answer it means the question should become instead who can I be.
As a striver, a driver, and action promoter I live in a world of DO. I want to increase my ability to simply BE. To be alright with who I am…where I am…how I am when I connect with others. To Be fully present. Authentic. Loving. Me.
And my new years resolution is to keep my inspired doing while increasing my sense of authentic being.
Action Step: Take 5 minutes each day and BE fully present in a conversation. With a team member, a child, a spouse, a friend, a boss, or the guy who makes your coffee at Starbucks.
