What to do next?!
After I spend my new year almost just traveling, I have to admit it's time to take care more about the ones left behind: I mean it's not just my family and friends, which I got to see obviously not regularly, but as well my own home needs to be taken care of. My last months mostly looked like: leaving, traveling, arriving back home, unpacking luggage, washing a lot of clothes, packing up again a new suitcase and off again to far away places.
It was my idea to start the new year with traveling, because last year was heavy and I needed a break from everything. Specially I wanted to:
- to slow down,
- to unwind,
- to connect again more to myself
- to rediscover my dreams and wishes
- to find out what really matters to me
- and what I want to do next...
All the first ones were easy, but the last one - what I want to do next - apparently is more difficult as thought.
Why? Well, lets see how I can put it: I want to do soooo many things, that it's hard to decide which one(s) I should start chasing.
thoughts about freedom
As a freedom addict making a decision what I want to do next, seems to be limiting my possibilities. I mean I have so many ideas and so many different skills and talents - and exactly therefore I don't want to choose just one of them.
After a though session yesterday with my mental trainer Rafaela, we discovered that I feel unsure, which direction professionally wise I want to choose. It seems to me almost "dangerous" to decide, which journey to take.
But as she put it wisely "No decision is a decision as well" I was thinking "ok, well, she has a good point".
She made me realise as well, if I do to many things at once - I could end up not moving / growing at all. To make it easy to understand I simplify the topic with a little pic:
So if I would do things like A, B, C and D, I put my energy in different areas & ways. As Rafaela puts it: I could end up at the same point as where I began.
You see my dilemma? What do you think?
WHERE TO PUT MY ENERGY?
I guess it's more a mindset thing, to make up my mind and to see it not as limiting my possibilities but looking at the goal ahead.
What I gonna decide to do? I have a bit of a clue what could be my next move. Not forgetting about the big picture I have in my head.
And I'm sure, once I've made a decision - or let's say there are many to make actually, I probably will feel more balanced as well. More grounded.
But the best thing is: If after a while I notice my decision doesn't gets me where I want, I can make adjustments or I can just decide to try something else out. It is my life, my decision, and I'm the pilot of it all.
I guess this means becoming a real adult and taking new responsibility's on as a result of decision making.
saying "yes" to new horizons
As I know myself, once I said "Yes" to something, then my focus is persistent. I will do my best to reach the goals I set up for myself.
Follow me and see what my next steps will be.... It's gonna be for sure exciting! Are you excited as I am about new horizons?
I wish you all a great hopefully sunny Sunday.
Till next Sunday
Happy Chasing Dreams 3.0
quote of the week
As I was looking for quotes about freedom, I got to read various quotes from various persons, but I liked the most from Paulo Coelho!
