Slow Down

As I approach the 26 year mark, I often feel the pressure to make decisions, accomplish more, and hone my skills on certain things.  I just finished graduate school, am working and exploring all that the world has to offer a young, female professional in this day and age.

Do I sometimes stress that I should have figured out my life plan at this point?  Of course.  I think that is only natural.  I often worry that I should be more rooted by now.  Especially when I think about all the things my peers and role models have accomplished.  But, I have come to realize that I can’t set deadlines for myself.  There are so many opportunities in today’s world, things to explore and experience.  If I force myself into situations that I think I should be in, it wouldn’t be organic or right.

Comparison is the thief of joy.

So, in 2013, I have vowed to slow things down, figure out what I really value and enjoy, not what I think I should value and enjoy, and focus my energies there.  Meditate and reflect more.  Develop my spiritual practice.  Worry less.

After that, I know things will fall into place perfectly.
