I’m reading a book + workbook by Kris Vallotton (as recommended to me by the lovely Heather) and in my reading this morning he said something that really stood out to me (in relation to our identity & freedom in Christ, definitely recommend this book!) “…our doing flows from our BEING.”
[Tweet ““…our doing flows from our BEING.” via @ashleegeheb”]
Basically, he’s talking about the freedom we have, and how we can operate from that, and thus DO amazing things! Instead of how most of us operate (and I’m guilty of this too!) from a place of getting our worth from the STUFF we do!
Love, let’s get real for a moment, you know how icky that feels! Going to bed feeling like absolute crappola because you didn’t get your to do list done. Or not giving your kid Pinterest perfect cupcakes to take into the school party, but instead giving them slice and back R2D2 cookies (thanks to my nerd hubby, those things are currently calling my name from my fridge! bahaha!) But…you can feel those niggling thoughts of “I’m not good enough” and more negativity.
BUT – if we flip things around, and worry about our becoming first and foremost we can create and DO some amazing things! Don’t get me wrong here – I still hands down believe in being a DOER – but if we’re just throwing spaghetti at the wall….not a wise use of time! I’m actually going to dig deeper into this in 2 upcoming classes, so watch the shop pages!
Let’s sit with this today and see where it leads us. It’s super important to realize this, because it’s honestly one of the biggest things that has transformed by business this year! And to be totally honest, I still feel like an absolute novice in this category (there a LOT of days I still agree with negative mind gremlins, NOT what God says about me, or I choose to DO blindly, or both! ha!) But if it’s already been such a turnaround in my life + business in only a matter of months, where will it take me after a year? After actually mastering even a *tiny* bit of it?! Where can it take YOU love?! A non-boring business that’s one thing I know for sure! 😉
Remember: “…our doing flows from our BEING.”
with love & blessings,
