Some people talk about how finding stillness is more and more difficult in this modern age, where we go go go go go all the time, where a momentary chance for stillness is replaced by checking Facebook on a smartphone, but it’s something we humans have apparently had difficulty with for thousands of years already, even before handheld distractions. I find some comfort in this, honestly, because I’m a doer. I’ve always been a human doing. I was raised by hardworking, blue-collar folks with a hardcore work ethic; I have such difficulty as a human simply being.
I’m learning, as I move through this process of personal and business evolution, that my sole purpose for doing this, for doing anything, is to aim for the heart and to keep learning to move from that place. The world done gone crazy, y’all, and I’m not sure i have any other tools to change it than operating in this way. Here’s how I keep from tearing my hair out.
