A social life

The phone has not rung for a week (the requests for donations and invitations to participate in social research do not count).

A pile of unopened mail sits on the desk (why open them, I know they are just unpaid bills or work related newsletters).

There are no social appointments in the diary (unless I count the weekly family visits – and can I call them ‘social’, there is a social element to them).   Nothing fun or exciting is booked or planned for the next month!   What I am talking about here, is the face-to-face social life dear reader, as opposed to the community of blogging (see zero to hero).

This is not probably not a social life, my friend – this could be considered an isolated way of living.

But wait, maybe this is a good thing!  Being isolated from other, being reclusive.

If one is looking to reduce clutter and waste in their day and seeking for a simple and more honest life then maybe a quiet month of self reflection and contemplation is what is needed in order to clarify that which is important and real.  It can be easy to prop-up the social calender with events and occasions that are based on other people’s interest, sense of duty or fear of loneliness.  If this is the case and a busy social life is based on activities to avoid honest reflection and integrity and also to avoid criticism from others (of what they think you ‘should‘ be doing), then maybe it is a gift that I have been given this week.  Plus, I have time for blogging and to share these reflective thoughts with you. (she smiles)

A gift of time – to stand tall, to be authentic and to live by my values creating a life I am proud of, not one based on the expectations and belief of others.

daily opportunity for integrity

January – daily opportunity for integrity

May you have time to connect with what is important for your well-being, based on the essence of your spiritual self.

About holistic complications

I like to work on a personal goal or challenge each year .. learning from my previous experiences, I try and face my fears, to stretch myself and step forward, to create a more holistic and authentic life, living with good intentions - a clear, honest and 'real' life! I want to be more accountable for the life I live and create! My experience of being real and authentic are quite complicated at times!! I blog to share my blunders, experiences and ideas and to gain some insight from the self reflection that the process of blogging creates for me.
