When you work for yourself, are single, an empty nester, or just solo for a time, keeping your perspective while dealing with all your stuff in 24-hour chunks can be challenging. This is your daily life that you have chosen, you have crafted it to look like the way you want to live and work. It is unique to you. There are always interruptions, distractions, and hurdles to overcome. Not to mention the self-talk that can sometimes distract us and take us down an unwarranted rabbithole! Some can master the juggling act at an early age (maybe the 30’s???), others own it later in life (most of us!!!). As for me, I married very young, had kids early, and was lucky to build a value system that is centered around the love of my daily life. I have learned the juggling along the way and have kept a keen perspective by training my “vision” through introspection and living in the moment. When I feel crazy, this is what calms me down. The almost full moon reminds us, looking as if it’s hanging by a thread, the beautiful 91.75% waxing gibbous moon above the trees on a cold-crisp autumn night, assures us that when we look above beyond all of the clouds and to the extent of our vision, the stars forever shine. They are always there, faithful, you can count on them. It’s a lesson in humility simply knowing that you’re just one small thing. You’re not changing anything; you’re only reacting to it.
In the long run it’s your own unique way of seeing and staying aware in your daily life that hones your unique perspective. It also helps to keep you from taking yourself too seriously. Perhaps that’s how you master the juggling act…
Love and peace XOXOXOOX
