Sometimes I feel like I am scattered in too many places, with too many activities and endeavors in my life. Every day is different and I wonder if I have a lack of clarity on where I’m headed.
However, I realize with this question, I am comparing myself to those people who are fully dedicated to one area in their life.
When I remove the comparison to others, which is a necessary and healthy avenue to take, I realize the answer. I am fully balanced in my life.
A mother, a writer, a friend, a yogini, a spiritual seeker, a dreamer, a lover, a hiker, a surfer, an inspiration, a teacher, a graduate student, a music lover, a traveler, an explorer, a mystic, an artist, a silent loner, a social butterfly, a fast mover, a slow mover….forever enchanted. The list goes on the more I think.
It’s all about balance.
I am on one path but have many tributaries in my river of life… Each day I wake and decide in the moment which branch, like a root, to follow. This grounds me into myself.
