I discovered something powerful today that I wanted to share that shows us why being is more important than doing.
I was in a quite reflective mood and decided I wanted to know what people are generally asking Google for help for. I started by typing” how can I” and got this:
This didn’t surprise me but it made me a little sad. Is this all we really care about? Money + our weight? Do we really think that’s going to make us happy?
Then I decided to hone in on what we ask google how to be, instead:
Isn’t it wonderful? The top search on google for “how can I be” is how can I be a better person?
Oh, that just made my heart sing. The end is not nigh. We are delightful beings of wonder + kindness. We can’t help but mostly want to be better.
You see, who to BE is so much more important + powerful than any other decision we make in our lives.
Every morning you wake up + you make that decision again + again + again. That’s the total and utter beauty of it. You choose. You have control. You can have a less than ideal job + a less than ideal financial situation but still decide who you are going to be on that day. You might have no money + be more or less overweight than you desire, but you can be a person that others gain strength + love + support from. You might have been someone you weren’t too proud of yesterday but you can get up today + be somebody entirely different.
This is why being is more important than doing. We are human beings, not human doings.
So who are you going to be today?
