Do Less, Feel Better

Thanks Miuenski and Nancy!

Kelly has been teaching me the art of doing nothing. We are pretty extreme opposites; she likes to be and I like to do. Often I'll say something like, "at least we worked out today," as if the day would have been worthless if we hadn't done at least one productive thing. Kelly reminds me my worth isn't measured in how much I get done. My worth is inherent.

The only metric that matters in life is how much time you spend feeling good. Because that's why we came here.

I tried making a worksheet for myself of 9 things I wanted to do every day, because certainly if I was able to, then I'd feel happy. I'm finally starting to learn how flawed that logic is. I don't have to do a single thing to feel happy. I can choose it right now, in this moment.

When I choose to be happy for no manifested reason, I attract happy thoughts, which lead to happy manifestations. It's so simple. Just feel good first, because you can. Then let life tell you what to do.

  1. The feeling of happiness, confidence, worth to family or society, or self satisfaction is what makes me feel good. Sometimes it is what I do, while it can also be where I am or who I’m with.

    BTW, I love this photo!

  2. This is exactly what I needed to read today after I had a little stress cry last night about the fact Im always broke and at 32, I havent made something of myself and Im tired of scraping by in life.

    Daily I have to remind myself that Life wants the best for me and to get out of its way!

  3. It’s amazing how challenging this is. Usually whenever I have I day where I don’t get much done I feel like “blaaaaaaaaaahhghgh why didn’t I accomplish thiiiings”.
