Feeling like the Seven of Cups

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:

  1. Write, write, write!
  2. Study the tarot – and also palmistry, and I Ching, and the chakras, and etc.
  3. Spend more time meditating and connecting to spirit
  4. Learn to play the guitar – which I’m currently doing but I need time to practice
  5. Sing, sing, sing!
  6. Study Chinese – which I kinda know how to speak but really want to learn how to read and write
  7. 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!
  8. Learn Iridology
  9. Knit, crochet, sew!
  10. Podcasting

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.
