My long-time friend & life coach has always called me a “woman of action”. I’m a DO-er. If I want something done, I just DO it. It serves me well in many facets of my life.
However, I’ve recently realized that it sometimes can be to my detriment. When you over-action — you’re putting a buffer between you and your emotions. That buffer stops you from entirely processing your emotions.
So we decided I should practice sitting quietly with my thoughts and my feelings every single day. NO doing.
And let me tell you, it’s not easy! To be honest, I sometimes forget.
Because it’s not comfortable, my brain sometimes forgets on purpose. So I’m making a promise to you and my entire community that I’m going to sit quietly and not DO, every day for 5 minutes.
The good thing about being a woman of action is that if I really commit to doing something (especially publically), I DO it. Even if the DOING, is sitting and NOT doing. So will be interesting to see what comes up!
What makes you uncomfortable? What are you scared of? Do you over-action (eat, shop, drink, etc) to buffer away your emotions?
Want to sit with me for 5 minutes a day and see what comes up? We can do this together!
PS Many of you are meditators and do much longer than 5 minutes a day. To you, I salute you! 🙌💕👏
