Every now and then I feel stagnated. I’m not talking about a small rut, but rather major blockages in my life. They could come to light as being unable to complete things, a lack of interest in things that captivated me a short time ago, or perhaps being unable to accomplish anything outside of the daily routine.
While these symptoms may have been caused by a change in perspective, growth or simply the passage of time, the result is the same. My life no longer fits who I am.
What I have noticed is that these times of blockage also entail a sense of the whole of my obligations being overwhelming. Areas of my life seem sluggish with the burdens.
I believe that if I want to have a life of my choosing, I must take an active role in planning it. So this all boils down to editing my life.
A print editor goes through text and eliminates unnecessary prose and grammatical errors, while making suggestions for expansions. I can edit my life to get rid of the parts that no longer serve the whole, while adding things in to point me in the right direction.
In eight articles in the series, I will examine part of my life and show you how I edit it.
