What an amazing idea? What an amazing message…..
BE with the ones who are here. BE in the present and get rid of distraction.
What is it going to take to BE with the ones you love? Right now. This instant? Is it turning off the t.v.? Shutting down the computer? Turning your phone on airplane mode? What is it going to take?
What is it going to take to BE with your work right now? To be completely focused and dedicated to the task at hand. What is it going to take? Is it uninstalling Facebook on your phone? Locking down with leechblock or making your action list? What steps can you take?
What is it going to take to BE authentically you? In my case, I need time. Time away from devices. Quiet. Exercise. God’s Word. Rest. Prayer. Dedicated time with my husband. All of these hit the reset/refuel button in my life and allow me to BE. Yet, with the way this world works, I have learned that I need to prepare my schedule specifically for this time and visualize my day with these moments in it.
Why? Because I want to be the Gina who makes the choices above. Not just the Gina that gets caught up in the crazy thing called life. I don’t want to coast, get lost in hours of checking updates, or miss the adventure in the everyday. I want to LIVE and BE and BREATHE with the life around me.
I plan on getting a lil’ basket and using it as a reminder. Making it a point, each time I walk past it, to ask myself ”Gina, what’s it going to take to really JUST BE?” and then to place inside it the physical (or mental) things that are getting in my way.
What could you, right now, this minute, throw in the basket?
