It’s likely that you are doing plenty in your life. You may even be doing too much. Too much of what? That is a question that I think is important to ask ourselves. So, what am I doing? Where is that taking me? ~Ben McLellan, owner of Underground Studios in Watertown, MA
I wonder about this more and more lately. For years, I was satisfied with the balance of my career, running and yoga. I knew there wasn’t room for everything I wanted to do, but I accepted that as fact for those who work 40+ hours a week. So I’d trade out yoga for when I was enrolled in a writing class or I’d ramp up my yoga practice during the winter months when I ran less. I remember a friend years ago joking that he was mediocre at everything and totally ok with that. Dabbling in everything made him happy.
Happiness is all that really matters.
And I am so, so happy.
But I still flirt with a desire to go deeper lately. A desire for my life to feel less compartmentalized. A desire to have the time and energy to learn and grow. What would that be like? Who would I grow into? Through my blogging, I always explore how to fit it all in. Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to fit in less.
