The Sea of Being

Have you ever felt this way?  Chances are if you’re a woman that’s a silly question!  I often feel that I am loved and accepted more for what I do than who I am, so when I am being unproductive (even in times of poor health) I feel anxious.  I compare myself to other’s productivity and often find myself lacking, especially as I navigate retirement.  I am working on self acceptance in many areas and one of them is accepting my physical rhythms and honoring my body’s whispers to just “be”.  After all, we are human BEINGS, not human doings:)  So, if you’re having a productive day – Awesome!  But, if you’re like me today and floating in the sea of being, I welcome you and invite you to just breathe and float awhile:)
