Why am I So Busy?
That’s a really good question! I think one of the reasons that we keep so busy is so we don’t have to slow down enough to contemplate our sadness, frustrations, disappointments or anything else that we might feel that is less than desirable. We keep our brains and bodies occupied so we don’t have to ”go there”; to feel anything or deal with the past. We can just carry on like nothing has ever happened and cover it with new things, new activities, new friends; anything that delights and tantalizes our senses. Those things we put there to distract us from what’s really going on.
It hurts to feel hurt.
So, what might happen if you actually to a tiny peek to look behind the veil of all those distractions?
What might you find?
What would you lose a value if you did?
Would you die?
No, I don’t think so. No one ever died from crying or feeling sad that I am aware of. I’ve cried my fair share and I’m still here. You will be, too.
Would you have feelings that might overwhelm for a moment? Maybe.
But that’s okay. Feelings are there to help steer you to what is stuck energy unresolved issues within you. Feelings are actually a great thing to have and it’s important that we listen to and experience them. If we don’t, and we just keep covering them up, then we might become physically ill or even have disease. When you actually allow yourself to feel you might go through a process of great sadness and crying, waiting for tears actually have different chemistry then happy tears. You were actually cleansing the body both emotionally and physically. But eventually those tears will stop and calmness will come. You can then start to ask questions of:
What do I need?
What would make me feel better?
What do I need to take responsibility for within myself?
What can I let go of?
What sadness, frustration or fear am I carrying that is not mine?
When you begin to ask us questions you’re opening a possibility for creating shifts and maybe change. Sometimes, we fear letting go because our fears are so wrapped up in our identity. It has become a blanket of security and connection with certain people and our world. That if we change our let things go, our connection with others might be lost. We don’t know who we will be if we don’t have that.
Rest assured, you will be someone quite amazing and with those fears and disappointments and old energies now gently being laid to rest, you might experience more levity and energy to do greater things. A lightness of being will enable you to focus on your goals and dreams.
And why wouldn’t your friends and family want that for you? It’s okay to let go and be happy. And when you do, you might find even greater connection, deeper relationships and more focused excellence in all you do.
Who wouldn’t want that? Awesome.
