Sometimes I catch myself doing too many things, and it is then that I have to stop and be honest with myself.
I have a way of wanting to be there for everyone, working on too many different creative things, and keeping my plate constantly full.
It is admirable to live life “full force” to give my all to friends, family, colleagues, students, projects but… in the end… I have to stop and decide: What do I really want?
Do I want to be the best parent?
What does that entail?
Do I want to be the best teacher?
How does that look?
Should I be focusing on creative endeavors?
What would I have to give up?
And what about love?
How much of myself am I willing to give?
I don’t always like being honest with myself… I often times just want things to go on as is… without giving up anything… without making a decision… but the truth is…
Sooner or later… I will spread myself too thin… I will be too worn… and I won’t have enough energy left for anyone.
Life is about making choices… making decisions… deciding what really matters and putting all of your focus towards what you truly love.
Being honest with myself about what I want is the first step to a happier and healthier life.
“Dear God, help me to be pure in my intent. Help me to follow the path that leads to my true calling.”
