Good Morning All,

It was totally my intentions to pen trends that have recently caught my eye, but this morning I'm struggling with something a little deeper. Wasn't sure how deep (and transparent) I wanted to get here, but I'll simply say what I've been thinking.

I know I am right at the brink of the tide before it turns, but I'm so bogged down with thoughts and ideas of what my future will look like to the point where I don't know what my role is at this exact moment. I've allowed life to just 'go', per se, and have allowed the tide to overtake me. At the end of each day I realize I'm searching for something because now I'm unfulfilled (which manifests when purpose is absent).

I've done my own thing hoping for a positive outcome...I'm still waiting, though. First things first, I have to come back to my Creator God in order to see any organization in my life. Next, I have to be the change. I have to believe that my contribution is world-changing, otherwise I will never get over this hump; back to the right side of purpose. And lastly, it is pertinent for me to tease my thoughts out of my head onto paper, so that I don't forget what has been consuming my thoughts (which are obviously important). This way I am able to sort and separate so that I am better able to address each concern in a timely fashion, thus, relieving a huge chunk of my stress.

Balanced Life: Doable?

Friday, September 21, 2012 0
First, I must s/o my fellow bloggers b/c consistently blogging is a definite feat! I have been wanting to write for the last 48 and have just now got around to do it, which leads me to the topic of the day: balance! How does one find the time to work, go to school, connect w/ the rest of the world and the heavenly Father, keep the house in order, mellow out, shop, and eat (amongst so many other things)?

This will be the first of many posts that address this topic, but what I will encourage each of you to do (right now) is break down the day into components of physical, emotional/mental, social, academic, and spiritual pieces to ensure all-around quality health.

What I have done recently is learned to meditate an hour in the morning when I wake up and an hour at night before turning in. An hour may not be feasible for some, so take whatever time you can, even if it is simply turning your computer off while you gobble down your sandwich for 2-3 minutes before your meeting that you are already late for.

What I do during this time is either think or create (which has been the case more recently). Realizing that incorporating your passion somewhere in your day, i.e. creativity = what makes you tick, is like that vacation you dream about on your 9-5; what you have been saving for or the reason you haven't yet quit your gig. Creative meditation is the getaway you've been looking for and it helps keep you sane throughout your long days and even longer nights. Find something that you've wanted to do and indulge!

So as part of my transformation into my new career path, I have decided to post photos (obviously unprofessional) of my work as it evolves. I know you will probably get tired of seeing my face, so I have also started conducting contests for my friends to participate in what I like to call "theme week". Here goes nothing :) bear with me...the first fall look, any thoughts?
