Recently I have become really aware of how I fill all of the spaces in between with Doing.

I have a Productive Mindset that showed up some years ago when I made the decision to really Take the Reigns of my life. And now, I really like to Get Shit Done. I think it and I do it.

I used to be someone who put things off, but now I just do it because I can see the energy that gets lost when I hover around the things in the space of no decision.

This has been a really welcome change from the procrastination that i used to experience, but I feel the pendulum has swung too far…

Recently I’ve been feeling into why I have such an urgent need to feel productive. And it come down to Value. This Productive Mindset has the cornerstone belief that to get shit done is Valuable. It believes that if I am busy and if I am filling every moment of time with Productivity, I am Valuable to the world.

Which absolutely has it’s place!

But what it doesn’t take into consideration is the nervous system. What it doesn’t take into consideration is that it is the spaces between that allow love, magic, creativity and peace to flow through our days.

What it doesn’t take into consideration is that when I stop and let the world touch me, I have a moment to breathe…

And when I have a moment to breathe… I can feel the depths of my soul, its presence and intrinsic value, rather than the external validation that I get from the productivity of Doing. I feel my value beyond Doing and that feels vital to happiness.

So today while I drank my tea on the verandah, instead of planning my day, creating my intention, doing my homework, prioritising client jobs, making a whole bunch of round the house lists, paying those bills and drinking my tea, I just sat…

… listened to the birds…
… watched the leaves dance in the breeze…
… listened to the happy humid crickets…
… Breathed into my diaphragm…
… and Let the world touch me…

Thank. Fucking. God!
