What Am I Doing?

It seems like lifting weights is something we do but headaches are things that happen to us.  What if anything explains the difference between the goings on in us that are doings rather than happenings?  I'll argue that some natural proposals aimed at grounding this difference fail and that this should lead us to question whether the distinction between the doings and the happenings is in fact a real one.
