Monday Motivator: Doing is Good, Living is Better!


“We are always getting ready to live, but never living.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The past few weeks I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed.  Maybe it’s because I  can’t believe it’s already summer, because there was no school this past week, or there’s just too much stuff going on.  But that’s no excuse-there’s always stuff going on-it’s life.  I feel like I’ve been just going through the motions-going through the checklist getting everything done, but not taking a breath to appreciate what is happening because I’m too busy doing or preparing.  This quote reminded me to pause and to live.  I’m one of those people who like to get things done and do things right.  I plan and organize then execute, but sometimes I get so caught up in whether or not I got everything done just right that I miss the moments of just living.  It’s something I’m working on.  What are you working on?  What would be living in the moment for you?
