Being is Still the Word

In January of this year (2015) I picked being as my word of the year.  The one that was going to remind me, inspire me, encourage me.

It was chosen because I can rock "doing" like nobody's business.  I have lists for lists, I'm thinking two steps ahead.  Yes, I can sit and be lazy with the best of them, but even then my mind is running like a hamster on an exercise wheel.  

Just "being" is hard.  Being in the moment.  Taking it in.  Allowing yourself to feel whatever emotion you choose free from judgement or worry or concern.  That's a powerful thing and one I have been tackling.

I sit here writing this from the beautiful beaches of the Outerbanks, where I have rented a house for the week.

Normally I would have an itinerary of everything I want to do, see, places to eat, etc.  While I love sitting and reading, or writing, when I'm on vacation I pay to be there, so I want to see things.

This time around in being very intentional about planning less, thinking on the fly, and being content too sit, look and listen to the waves rolling in.  (If I could figure out how to post an image from my iPad I would, you'll have to come back later!)

Remember many things in life can wait,
But taking time to just "be",
And The Sunset Won't.
