I recently heard some wise words from Deepak Chopra on the topic of success. He says, In order to be successful it is not about what you do it is about your relationship with yourself and how you be in the world.
I find this refreshing. A relief. I find this fulfilling. So often it is not what I do or what I have done that makes me feel good. It is how I show up that matters to my heart.
This morning I was really annoyed with my son. Details not worth going into but I was mad. So I walked out my anger and I showed up calm, patient, forgiving and able to love him. I think that far outweighs anything else I could have accomplished this morning.
How we show up to ourselves and others inspires, nurtures, supports and touches hearts deeply far more than what we do. Being kind, present, loving, compassionate, respectful, authentic and peaceful now that moves mountains. I think if we stopped basing our worth on what we get done and checked off the list and instead focus our energy on how we BE in the world we’d get a whole lot further.
Hi, I’m Jenny Gwinn McGlothern, Certified Transformational Master Life Coach, Retreat Leader and Writer. As founder of my retreat business, Mama Needs A Refill, LLC, one way I know I fill my cup is by showing up to a blank page to write. Thank you for stopping by and reading my Random Monday Thoughts, because I will be honest that fills my cup too, knowing others are reading my filled page. Life is too short to blog about anything else unless it touches my heart. Please know I appreciate you joining me on this journey whether you visit every week since I began in 2008 or this is your first blog stop.
