doing vs. being

Stop being in a situation of doing, and start being in a situation of being.
-Jon Kabit-Zinn


This is a rule that I need to learn.

Longwood University!

Longwood University!

I am a traumatic brain injury survivor.
I am a college graduate.
I am an intelligent human being.
I am experiencing a change in career after a decade in one profession.
I am a little young to be having a midlife crisis.
I am having a hard time finding out where to dedicate my life & time.
housewife? dogsitter? Chazz lover. family caretaker? housekeeper? blogger.  WRITER.


I need to stop defining myself by what occupational position that I hold and what I have done.

A crocheting Chazz

A crocheting Chazz

I am so much more than that.
I am a caring young lady [I suppose at 34 I can still be considered young],
I am a lover of dogs,  (Esp. my Chazz dog, but mostly all dogs)
yoga, crocheting, good friends

and an iced matcha latte.

    Danielle, I found you via a like on my “Truth” poem. Thanks for the contact. I am impressed by this About. Congratulation on being an overcomer who has as a goal, to help someone be an overcomer. You are so right about us identifying with “what we do” rather than “what we are.” That is vitally important in the kingdom realm of Christ. I’ll see you more. I’m finding your “follow” button.
