From the last post, “From Barbies to Business” it may seem as though my focus now is reflecting on my life so that I can navig
ate my career to achieve a lifestyle that I created in my head while playing with Barbies. Yes.This is true, but I realize that there are all these other things in my life that are demanding attention as well. To be honest it’s stressing me out. I understand the basic idea of “balance” and how necessary it is in one’s life to be happy and healthy which is all I want. I don’t however, understand how to do it?? So I’ve managed to compartmentalize my life and ask questions for each:
Spiritually- How will I practice my spirituality in a way that I am comfortable with, serves me and helps me keep
up my best self?
Financially- How do I stand in my truth about my financial resources and manage them to meet my life goals?
Physically- How do I create discipline in my life around attaining real physical goals?
Emotionally- How do I manage my words and actions when things piss me off so that I don’t harm relationships or my well-being?
Sexually- How do I continue to grow in this area without letting it rule my relationships?
Professionally- How do I keep from becoming complacent while maintaining focus on my overall goals? Wait. What are my overall goals?
Socially- How do I balance and give attention to the real feelings I have about interacting with certain others and participating in a society that often pisses me off without losing my mind?
Politically- How do I voice my opinions and give in a real way to the “democratic” society I am a part of, but not give in to the unfortunate drama that the media, large business and government conduct?
I was hesitant to write this post for fear of being deemed “crazy”- but I know I’m not the only one who feels this way and didn’t I say that I would approach life fiercely? Here is where the rubber hits the road. Now to answer these questions.
I guess I’ll start by breaking it down, area by area. I know there is not right or wrong answer but some sort of balance is neccesary to keep this boat from tipping over.
But I ask, am I the only one? Are you asking yourself these questions? Is this that “25-year-old, quarter life crisis” I’ve heard about? Geez, help me out!
