Maintaining My Focus

I am feeling a little emotional!

To give you a little background – I have been reading a few blogs lately on a variety of topics (or so I thought) then I noticed a recurring theme – I am drawn to the idea of focus.  Focus in our task, focus in photography, focus on the spiritual breath while meditating and focus while engaged in ti chi or yoga to improve our balance and stretch.

So, I have come to the realisation that my life has lost a little of its focus in recent months and I have started to feel a little unsure in my steps and emotionally ‘wobbly’.   I know this happens to us all at times and we might just need to take a little rest …  to sit under a shady tree in the warm air with a good book.   I have been saying and doing but to be honest not really with a true focus.    It has been a bit half-heart-ed and not really what I originally signed up for at the beginning of the year.

To be fair there have been a number of big things happen in the last year:  births, deaths, sickness, job shifts and changes, new friendships and the list goes on …  So I understand a little of why I feel emotionally wobbly and unsure.

BUT, enough is enough!   There are other times when we really need a good jolt to reset and refocus so that we can surge forward and make good with our day and life    –    to keep our focus on the goals and purpose in our hearts and minds.    This is what I have experienced – a lack of focus with some negative outcomes and a lack of faith in myself.    Not good!

Life is full of opportunities and good things ..   I know this  ..  and to make good use of this knowledge I choose to allocate the time and space to reflect on what happened and why I fell back into old habits of inaction and lack of focus.   I am choosing now, not to get drawn into the drama of others and not to take on blame, shame or limiting beliefs about what I ‘should have’ or any unhelpful thought at all really.    I am choosing to stay focused on my passions and goals so that I can continue to create my GOOD life.

I have just signed up to be the most ardent member of my own fan club.     What fun!!!

Go Go Girl!!!

 

About holistic complications

I like to work on a personal goal or challenge each year .. learning and growing, facing my fears, embracing love and challenges and stepping forward to create a more holistic and authentic life, living with good intentions - a clear, focused 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 experiences and ideas and to reflect on what inspires me!
