I’m not so sure why it’s so easy to cast our attention on what we do not have, rather than what we do have? On the problem and all that is going wrong rather than what is good and right. And I’m not really talking about things here. I’m talking more relationally and maybe a little metaphorically.

I’ve always confused it with a “doing.”
But it’s not a “do.” It’s a “be.”
Have you ever noticed the wording?
I get the two confused often. I make almost everything into a “do.” A work. A chore. A check off my list.
