I have rediscovered that I am the queen of too much. This time though, instead of getting discouraged and giving up for a while, as I’ve done in the past, I am going to take a closer look at what I love to do, what I want it all to mean, what direction I wish to go in, and what I need to do to move toward that. Do you also find yourself adding and adding, without letting go of anything?
I’m finding out that it just isn’t possible to live that way, nor does it make sense. What happens is that you find yourself stalled, and your creativity and passion get put on hold while you’re trying to figure out why you don’t have the time to fit it all in. So, it’s time for me to step back just a little and take a look at who I am today and not who I thought I wanted to be last year…or even last week.
Growth and change are part of the beauty of our journey. Every now and then we’ve got to clear the way for who we’ve grown to be. It’s easy to get stuck in the rut of trying to live out a vision from the past and neglecting to see ourselves and our dreams as they are…right now…right here…in this moment.
I’ll be here sifting, sorting, redefining, clarifying, and releasing. What prioritizing boils down to is moving the things up the list which make us feel alive, letting other things drop a level or two, and allowing others to completely fall from the list. How can we be fulfilled when we’re running over the top with things which are no longer relevant?
Does your list need a little work too?
