I’ve been exploring a new conversation recently:
What is your relationship to Being Busy?
Is it something you strive for? Feel proud of? Feel like you can’t escape? Wish for? Our world has become so dynamic and quick paced that it seems everyone is always Busy all the time.
Correction, it seems like “successful” people are always Busy all the time.
Where are you going with all of your Busy? What’s your end game?
What’s really important to you? Is it your career, relationships, spirituality, family, money, fame, winning that debate on social media (yeah, I see you), your health?
Let’s set aside for a moment that most people haven’t even define what “successful” looks like in their life. Truly “successful” people invest time in things that are most important to them. They’re smart and intentional about their Busy.
However, what typically happens is we get lost in the dis-ease of Busy, we lose track of what we’re spending our time on. Almost like a snowball effect, one thing leads to another and another and before you know it, you’re just always busy, and probably tired and stressed. It’s no longer about being productive or moving toward something, rather about scrambling to keep up. Subsequently we often lose track of what is actually important to us.
What’s important to me isn’t so much doing, it’s more about being and feeling. I strive to feel calm, grounded, loved, to be prosperous, energized and aligned. To ensure that my focus remains on my state of being, I set an annual Intention each year and allow that Intention to become my north star as I prioritize my life and keep an eye on my relationship to Busy.
Sounds nice right? A north star to feeling and being whatever you chose.
Here’s where the Catch22 comes into play.
I spend a lot of time crafting my intention each year. For 2019 I went on a two day solo beach retreat and the majority of my energy was focused on crafting my intention.
However, if you’re smack in the middle of the dis-ease of Busy, well, taking that much time for yourself sounds insane, unrealistic or just plain stressful.
Here’s the thing, the chronic dis-ease of Busy will eventually take its toll on you. It can ravage your body and your relationships. At some point, if you don’t slow down and reprioritize, the Universe (aka God, Spirit, Goddess, the Divine, Allah, Karma, Yahweh, whatever your jam is) will do it for you. I’ve seen it happen in the form of job burnout leading to firing or a lay off, relationships fizzling leading to the end of a romance. For me it was health related, my body started to shut down, literally.
Some people need that smack in the face from Universe to slow down. Some do not. If you’re already feeling that tug, that call to re-evaluate, to slow down and prioritize. Listen!
Come on the Crafting Intention Journey and create some space in your life for your Self. This Journey is in alignment with the Spring Equinox, the planet is generating new life (even under all that snow some folks just got), flowers will be blooming soon, new ideas are flourishing — it’s going to be a wonderful time to focus on your Intention.
Going through this Journey will provide you with a new perspective on how you prioritize your time and your Self. The last group completed their Journey in January and the results they’re experiencing are just amazing. Everything from health to business to romance is impacted by this Journey.
Throughout the Journey you get support and structured guidance on how to tap into your soul and put in place a solid foundation upon which you can design 2019 to be super juicy. You’ll create a roadmap that bypasses the busy and has you actually enjoying the journey. The deadline to join is March 11th, click here to learn more.
