Sometimes in life, you need to take a step back and notice just what life is giving you. My walk into 2018 didn’t go gracefully. While battling personal issues and figuring out my next moves, I thought it would be best to recalibrate my attention. So much of life is just trying to put your attention in different places. The most difficult part is feeling like you’re missing out on something because your attention can only be in one place at a time. The unfortunate truth is that you have to be okay with your decision regardless of the outcome.
Striving to be perfect comes at a great cost. You’ll build up resentment for yourself because you’ve fallen short of the goals that you’ve set for yourself. It’s a difficult line to walk. On one end you want to ensure that you’re putting your best foot forward in your life, on the other end, you don’t want to kill yourself because you’re falling short of your goals. I wish the answer to this was universal but it’s not. It all depends on what sacrifices you’re comfortable with making. You have to give in order to receive, that’s one universal fact I’m sure of.
I wrote this post knowing that it wouldn’t be perfect. In fact, I’m not even going to edit this. Mostly because I think I needed to make this post for myself than anything else. The hope is that readers will be inspired by my writings, but cleansing my energy is at the top of my to-do list today. Hope your 2018 is off to a great start. Metta!
