Hello and welcome back. Thank you for joining me on this journey to be our Best Selves.

And the operative word here is BE your Best Self. Not do your Best Self. Most of the time, you forget you are a human BEING and not just a human DOING. We all forget this critical part.




We make endless to-do lists which we get stressed to tick off. Constant going, going, hustling. But we never think of making lists just to be. Be happy, be whatever. Just BE (whatever you choose to be).

I love Paloma Faith’s song “Just BE”. It perfectly illustrates the point here. The chorus goes:


Don’t say nothing
Just sit next to me
Don’t say nothing, shhh
Just be, just be, just be

(Songwriters: Wells Greg / Hales Matthew / Faith Paloma)


We have come into this world to have experiences not just to do things – no matter how worthwhile and/or important they appear. Achieving great things is amazing but what’s more important, is the human being we become as a result.

So take time to write a to-be list ( yes, another list) and then make the time for it. For yourself. To just be. Make sure you protect this time at all costs because life will get in the way. Don’t let it. Most importantly, savour your BE time, enjoy it, and learn from it. BE your Best Self. Or just yourself. It’s enough.

See you tomorrow x
