Searching for who we are.......I will be the first to admit, I struggle with thinking of my self only in terms of what I do. It is very easy to see our worth only in what we do, after all when we meet someone new, one of the first things most of us ask, "what do you do?" In the words of one of my friends, "my validation comes from work".
We are not what we do......we are not what we do......we are not what we do.
Begin by letting go of all labels. Just for a little while, no longer think of yourself as male, female....old, young,
husband, wife....son,daughter....brother,sister.....mom, dad.......then begin to let go of those titles we cling to so passionately......teacher, manager, dancer, singer, artist, soldier, plumber, doctor, lawyer.......breathe a nice deep breath, and continue to let go of labels until there is nothing left but you. You, the essence of all that is good, loving and kind, spirit in a human form, created in the creator's imagine, connected by oneness by breath to all living things. You don't have to do anything.......just be....and know that by just being, you are a miracle.
We are so driven, by those labels......and once we label, then we have to be the very best of what ever label we are wearing at that moment. I will admit that there have been times in my life when I was so consumed by
my label of what I did, so pushed to be the best, so concerned about validation........that body and soul suffered horribly. I think it is a very human thing to be that way, but I also think to grow and learn and experience life in its fullest......there are times we have to just be,we have to realize, we are not what we do.
Every once in awhile, strip off the labels, be brave and let them go.
We are not what we do.......we are not what we do........we are not what we do........
We are so much more.
