Lordy Mama life has gotten complex (again).
Are you like this? You take on too much, your filters get clogged, your systems break down . . . you enter a fog of neural bombardment.
This happens to me periodically. It’s happening right now. I’m not keeping up with what I consider essential. I’m awash in unattended soft priorities . . .
I know only one thing to do each time this happens. I go to ground. I have to get silent for a lengthy period of time . . . with all my notes and obligations and tasks and goals surrounding me.
And I sift.
I sift and rethink.
What really is essential?
Am I living my vision? Am I living what is most meaningful?
What must I tweak? What must I change? What am I willing to do differently or not at all?
I ask myself questions like these and write down answers. Sitting in extended silence draws out what is essential to a life. Writing down the questions and the possible solutions clarifies my way forward.
If you too are experiencing a similar overtaxing of the mind and spirit, schedule a morning with yourself. Or an afternoon or evening.
No distractions. Certainly no digital companions chirping away at you.
Get a pad and paper. And ask yourself questions. Interview yourself! At length. Take time to sift. Allow space for unexpected responses to emerge.
If you take this time I guarantee you will uncover the You you most want to be. And you will find renewal. The steps along a better path will suggest themselves.
After this, what?
Rejoin the fray. Jump back into the adventure. It’s yours, live it your way.
