To be Alive is Enough

To be alive is power existence in itself without further function omnipotence enough.

~ Emily Dickinson

For today, I need to ask myself if I need a title, a career, a job, a wage, or social status in order to be enough to myself or others. Are my roles in society enough to define who I really am? Is not being a parent, sibling, aunt/uncle, grandparent, friend, neighbor, lover/spouse, church member, a child of God, and a human being enough to call me important to and worthy of love? We are human beings, not human doings.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Who are you after the material things are stripped away? Of what value is your life? Live today like the person you would want to be, that will honored in your eulogy. List all the roles you play in society.

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this works for you.
