Writing helps me go more in-depth into areas of life that I want to know more about. So, I write and I am happy to share my thoughts. I enjoy pulling information from many sources, comparing and contrasting it, experimenting, and finding practical ways to live with more success and wellness. I hope you share your wisdom on this site.
This site and blog expands upon a blog I started in 2009, Very Smart Girls. The promise was Practical Skills, Tools, and Wisdom to Build your Best Life. This site and blog, Be All of You Today, is similar in purpose and content....and more. It also includes parts of a book (probably) by the same name that will be available soon. Final book may be slightly different than blogs.
The Be All of You Today book will outline four aspects, or realms, of life that everyone has throughout life. And they are free. But first, you need to be aware of them. Being unbalanced in any realm is an opportunity for learning and growth. I think of the book as a modern version of ancient wisdom. The book subtitle is A Practical and Powerful Life Framework for Success and Wellbeing. The framework is four aspects, or realms, of life and 12 building blocks.
Be all of you today, and every day. What is the point in having a good idea if you don't implement it? Or being smart, or wise, and not sharing? All of you = physical, mental, emotional, and your wisdom all showing up to the party!
Summary of the four life realms and self-assessment here.
My decades-long successful career has been marketing in the technology industry. This requires me to keep up with the explosion of non-stop information and communication platforms.
More than ever, it is imperative to determine what is essential and what is distracting and to discern what is information, what is knowledge, and what is wisdom. I have found that a framework creates a place to make sense of things and provides a touchstone for when things are chaotic or messy. It also provides a deeper understanding of when you feel good and things are going well.
If the framework in the upcoming book does not work for you, create one that does!
I chose a title that was the message itself.
No one is better suited to "Be" you than you! Doing and being are both essential. However, the being part is often overlooked. Be, as well as do.
"All of" is knowing that you are much more than meets the eye - physical, mental, emotional, and wisdom aspects of life are your tools and gifts to create your best life.
"You" is because it is a personal journey only you can take. Taking personal responsibility for your experiences is essential. Note: this does not mean you need to do it alone.
"Today" is is a reminder of the importance of being present. And your life is made up of the sum of your today's.
Please connect with me and others on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @BeAllofYouToday. I encourage you to take the journey to connect with yourself! Be your own self-scientist, experiment, and discover what works - for you and others. And then do more of that.
