January 2014 945Corby Winters’, Healthy Living Guide to be a Fit, Fierce, FabYOUlous, Bold and a BeaYOUtiful You. And before you think it,I will say it… Yes,I know that this is a long title full of adjectives, verbs, nouns and probably even more… But each word is key and necessary. One of my passions is to help others be as healthy as they can emotionally, spiritually and physically. I am always looking for ways to help others with ideas, tips and ways to help you make your life more healthy and balanced, as well as help you achieve true success and spiritual holiness!

This week’s insight is to simply remind YOU to BE. Yes, sometimes we just need to Be. Be in the moment. Be in the present. Be and not do.,,

My father used to always say, that God made us human beings, not human doings. Funny coming from a man who struggled with being a workaholic. He knew it was his thorn in the flesh and he struggled with that most of his life.

Just like my Dad, I too struggle with just being and not doing anything but simply being. 

If we watch a movie I usually try to sort through old mail or if the Sons are telling me a story I will pick up toys and stuff while listening. It is not easy for me to just be still and just be. I desire to be productive. I need to be doing something that needs to get done. I am sure some of you who are reading this can totally relate.

Sometimes the greatest thing that needs to get done is choosing to get nothing done. Yes, I said it! Do nothing. Nothing at all. I promise we can always find something to do. The laundry will always be there and the folding, painting, cleaning, working, and more of this or that to fill our every moment.

A great way to stay healthy and care for your soul is to learn to just be, even if it is for just a moment.

I practiced this just the other night. I decided I would get out some of my all-time favorite magazines and just listen to some great music and BE.

I have to say I felt guilty for a moment or two. In fact, I had to make myself just sit and not get up to DO something. I thought to myself, shouldn’t I be working or doing something productive? But I decided to enjoy myself and just enjoy the music, the magazines and the moment!

It was well worth it. I was inspired and rejuvenated by choosing to “BE”.

So today, dear friends, if life has you running in circles and you feel more like a “human doing” more than a “human being”, I invite you to just sit back, even if it is for just a brief moment and just BE!

I pray that you are blessed and encouraged abundantly and that you will live life in your passion and purpose.
