      Taken from Meditations for women who do too much  

      Acceptance of Self  

      Do nothing because it is righteous or praiseworthy or noble to do so; Do nothing because it seems good to do so: Do only that which you must do and which you cannot do in any other way.
      Ursula K. Le Guin

      We are so accustomed to doing what others want us to do, or doing what is right, or doing that which earns us praise, the LeGuin's words urging us to do only that which we must  do and cannot do in any other way seem unrealistic. We think: That's fine for her to say she is a writer-she schedules her own time.

      Yet, what truth is there for us in her words? We certainly can admit that we have done many things for the wrong reasons, and the pain of our righteousness, “Nobility“, or praise-seeking is often bitter in our hearts. Often when we do something because it seems good to do so, we waste everyone’s time, including our own.

      What a relief to believe that we are enough just as we are and that our own unique way of accomplishing a task is just what is needed.

      I WILL SIT with these ideas. Afterall, who else could make my contribution!
