Worthiness and busy-ness are unfortunately very linked together in our modern day world. If I attach my sense of worth (even unconsciously) to being busy, then I won’t tend to put such a high value on simply being.
Add to this the fact that our mind or ego has strong resistance to stillness. It’s job is to stay busy in thinking, so if the mind stops, the ego loses its purpose. The huge resistance I had to starting a practise of meditation now makes so much sense! Who would’ve thought there would be so much discomfort in trying to quiet my mind!
We’ve overglorified busy!
Our worthiness is not about how much we’re getting done. You are worthy because you exist.
Take time to just “BE”
Time Management expert Laura Vanderkam suggests that scheduling our self-care time as a “to-do” list item, helps busy people to ensure it gets done.
Next time someone asks you “how are you?” Imagine answering, “Wonderful. I’ve been taking so much time to do nothing and just enjoy being.”
