What it Means to “Just Be” in a Busy Bee World
What does it mean to live a fulfilled life? Does it mean you should try to be better? Strive for perfection? Or, do you really have to do anything at all? Why not “just be.”
Learning how to be myself and live in the present moment has allowed me to achieve the ultimate work-life balance. I get to do the two things I love – yoga and creating – without having to sacrifice in other areas of my life. I enjoy what I do while I’m doing it and try not to think about what comes next.
Mindfulness isn’t a destination, it’s a journey – an ongoing path to becoming the best version of yourself. I’m no stranger to the hustle and bustle of the business world. I spent over a decade in marketing and communications, acting as a voice for others and helping them communicate their vision. There is real value in the lessons I learned throughout those experiences, but there was always something missing…
Did I silence my voice? The voice inside of me, willing me to slow down and create, to inspire others to find that same inner peace? I needed to find synergy between these two worlds, to fulfill the needs of my clients while still nurturing my own creative passion.
One of my newest designs from our Cookie Cutter Collection – our Bumble Bee Yoga Cookies – are a simple reminder of the balance and strength I’ve incorporated in my life. I’ve learned to live in the present moment and make conscious, meaningful decisions. More importantly, I know that I have the freedom not to do anything I don’t want to do. Sometimes it’s okay to just sit back and let things unfold naturally. Great opportunities will come to us when we are simply not ready to seize them.
Are we supposed to beat ourselves up because we’re letting a “golden nugget” slip through the cracks? Absolutely not.
Finding freedom through intentional living is cleansing. I make choices, to do or not to do things, and welcome the fact that I will make mistakes along the way. Yummi Yogi is how I channel that strength and self-awareness; to create products I am truly passionate about that inspire others to live and let go. If you are in the mood to let go and just be, head over to our Inspirational Image Gallery, I am sure you will be surprised what can be made from a simple cookie cutter. Enjoy!
