We spend a lot of time “being busy,” going places, and doing things. But so what???

Sure, we’re experiencing a lot of “things,” but is being busy, going here and there all the time, etc., helping us achieve a sense of fulfillment and connection?

Ask yourself some of these questions:

  • Are you connected to the food you eat? Do you know what’s in it?
  • Are youconnected to the people who surround you? 
  • Are you connected to the environment around you, whether it’s in an office or a run after work? 
  • Are you connected to the path your life is moving in?

Fulfillment doesn’t come from doing. It comes from connecting, and to do that, you have to be intentional about it. 

Living Intentionally means repeatedly asking yourself one question: Why? 

Why do I eat what I do?

  • Why do I hangout out with the people I do?
  • Why am I at this bar for the eighth weekend in a row?
  • Why am I in the job I’m in, or, why do I work so much?
  • Why do I feel like I have to keep moving?
  • Why?

When you begin answering questions like these honestly, you can start to see where there are real connections in your life and where there are people you’re “just with” or things you “just do.”
