Messy life

My life is kind of a mess right now. Not complaining or being over dramatic….just realizing that caring about the world, the community, the environment – and taking on the work that needs to be done – can create messy, chaotic, drained lives.

I do a lot, but because I work full time and am socially awkward, I don’t get out much. My social skills are not ideal, but I try my best.

I wonder sometimes if narcissism isn’t creeping into my heart, because I can be so focused on the work I forget to take other people’s points of view into account. Having gone through the change of life, I’m trying to figure out who I am, assess any new skills I need to acquire, and whether or not I need refresher social skill courses.

I’m going on vacation soon. I’m hopeful that this time away will help my soul recenter, rebalance, and renew so that the work I do will be done in a good way.
