Are you like so many people today who report feeling stuck in a treadmill life? Become responsible for the life you are creating for yourself.
Are you like so many people today who report feeling stuck in a treadmill life? Are you bored with your life? Are you sleep-walking through the daily routines that define your life? Does your life lack meaning?
When I start feeling this way it’s usually because I’ve lost awareness of two important things in my life.
First is the awareness that I have allowed life to get too busy. And usually the busyness is just a lot of little, miscellaneous, almost meaningless activities that I’ve allowed to fill up the hours of my day. Activities and things I call “shinny objects”.
I like the fact my mind tends to be interested in whatever comes into my vision, but it can also become a problem for me because I tend to pick up shiny objects like a sweater picks up lint.
When this happens, I lose my focus. Instead of attending to what is really important, I find my life purpose and passion, those things that bring deeper meaning into my life, have somehow slipped out of my awareness.
That’s when I get out the broom and begin mental house cleaning. For me, that means getting out a pad and prioritizing.
