Doin’ Something

Doin’ Something, not just the title of a grooving jazz/funk album by Soulive (which I highly recommend), but a reminder that we need to be doing something, intentionally.

Think big.

Open my mind to see opportunities, both big and small.

Broaden my focus.

I want to see beyond my needs, and see what is needed from me.

Do not begrudge the task to get to the completion, rather, enjoy the project. See the work to create as valuable as the creation itself.

“Life is a journey, not a destination” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

My friend gave me a book of short prayers that I read with my youngest daughter some nights, here is one of the prayers that she and I have memorized:

May I see each day (and the work that comes with it) as a gift.

This is good, because there is a lot of work to be done in this world. Work goes beyond making money, work is the process of creating something. Life is happening, and opportunity abounds!

Instead of saying to myself, “I should start writing again.”

I should write

this blog

right

now.
