I’ve been having a sort of crisis lately.
Last year, I made a lot of non-book-related goals, this year I was going to do the same, but while I ended up posting up a lot of my book goals, I didn’t really state what I wanted to achieve with the other aspects of my life.
Now the thing is, I have too many interests – which I am sometimes proud of, because that means I’m open-minded and inquisitive (or so I’d like to think) – but it also means that I never have enough time to do it all!
Let me just list roughly what I’d like to do all the time, if I could:
- Write, write, write!
- Study the tarot – and also palmistry, and I Ching, and the chakras, and etc.
- Spend more time meditating and connecting to spirit
- Learn to play the guitar – which I’m currently doing but I need time to practice
- Sing, sing, sing!
- Study Chinese – which I kinda know how to speak but really want to learn how to read and write
- Keep studying herbology and various alternative health information – I’m a certified Master Herbalist, but I always believe that I should never stop learning because there’s always so much more to learn!
- Learn Iridology
- Knit, crochet, sew!
As you can see, some of them actually lead to more, and there are still more that I haven’t listed.
I know that I can’t do all of them all the time, especially when it comes to studying. I just have so many subjects I want to study, so many skills I want to develop… But I know I have to focus.
I’d been spending a lot of time studying the tarot, and I realized that I’m having a Seven of Cups crisis – wanting too many things, needing to choose and to focus, or I’ll end up doing everything halfway and not achieving anything at all.
How do I choose one without feeling like I’m giving up on another?
I know that technically, I’m not really giving anything up. I’m just giving them up *for now* because I can always come back to them later, but it does feel a little like I’d be giving something up.
Perhaps I’ll sleep on it and have a better answer tomorrow. I’m sure it will work out in the end, I just don’t know how to get from here to there.
Do you have any suggestions? I’d love some advice.
