“…it’s choosing what’s right over what’s fun, fast, or easy; and it’s practicing your values, not just professing them” Brene Brown
Love the way this woman puts forth practical truth and wisdom!
I love it because who can’t relate to wanting to do what’s right and aligns with our values, right? The challenge most of us face today is having a to-do list a mile long and being pulled in many directions. The power of knowing your values, your big ‘why I do what I do’ is a powerful life navigation tool.
Just a few minutes of being with your breath can calm your nervous system, bring you into the present moment, and remove you from being caught in the deluge of demands. Being in the moment allows you to check in with how you’re feeling, calm your mind and maybe even pause to re-evaluate your next step or task or errand. Not only do we get swept up by our own mind, we get swept up in fulfilling the demands of others. Nothing wrong with doing things for others, in fact that is probably one of the most fulfilling things we can do! The real gift is when we are align our thoughts, words and actions with our values, that is being authentic and being in integrity. Sometimes this requires we do have do things that aren’t fun, fast or easy, and it can take courage…and it is soooooh worth it!
Just food for thought 💖 enjoy the journey…
