Just "Be" and Don't Do

Hello Lovelies and Happy Monday, I don't know about you, but I like to accomplish tasks through out my day. I struggle with "doing" everything I want to do in one day, there never seems to be enough time in a day. It was a lot easier during the school year, all three Vega Beauties were in school and I had a house keeper. Summer break is in full force here at Casa De Vega which means my house is filled with lots of laughter, giggling, jumping with three girls who are non stop and filled with a lot of energy. During summer break we don't use a house keeper, were are trying to show the girls "real" life lessons during the summer since I have more time with them: how to clean their bedrooms, bathrooms, how to do their laundry, cook and little household tasks.

I am striving to simplify my life ( this is a constant action), do what God has planned for my life and enjoy each moment. I get distracted, I get caught up in the American rat race and get sucked into the quick instant now of everything... and I detest that. Even with trying to simplify my life, I find myself trying to fill my days with tasks..yes good task that need to be done.. house cleaning, laundry, dishes, cooking, organizing, errands, etc. I find myself getting frustrated when I cant complete a task on my list at the time I want it completed.

Anxiety starts to creep up and I get stressed. I love my life and being able to spend every moment with my daughters. I need to start letting go. In a peaceful moment ( literally 10 minutes of alone time) I prayed and " just be, don't do" literally popped into my head. At that moment it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders, as those were the exact words I needed to be placed on my heart. Since that moment I changed little things in my day-to-day life. I stopped rushing. I have focused on spending more quality time with my girls and have seen that I can still get my weekly needed tasks done.

Be present, first and foremost. I am going to strive to be present in every second of life. When I am with family, actually BE with my family, no distractions- phones, Instagram, Facebook, etc. This is one area I am most desirable to actively pursue. I don't want to miss a minute of these sweet Vega beauties life's, simply because I wasn't living in the present moment. I can't even stand how fast time has already gone, I certainly cant miss a moment.
I am going to BE me! BE myself, BE who I want to BE just like that!
I love the thought of the millions of avenues this one word will be able to open.
It can apply to every aspect of my life.
I feel such an inspiring sense of excitement and motivation.
I know it wont be easy, but I will strive every moment just to BE!!

What about you? Are you allowing Jesus to lead your life? Or are you allowing distractions to lead your life? I encourage you to take a step back and evaluate your life and tasks and pray for peace, faith and be open as God leads you to the life He has planned for YOU. He will lead you down the road to BE the best you He created you to BE!!
