The third entry to the series, Heroine’s Journey Through a Mid-Life Crisis, explores the question:
Is there something more important and fulfilling that I can focus on now?
Please share your responses in the comments box, or feel free to e-mail me privately. My answer to this question is below.
I’m super blessed to be living my dream right now. I’m able to devote unstressed time to my daughter, I can run errands during the day, I write whenever I’m in the mood. I’m reading a few books a week.
That said, there are elements that I’d like to change, and maybe these are the important and fulfilling things I can focus on.
1) I would like a significant other in my life.
2) I would like to improve my health.
3) I would like to finish my Work In Progress.
Improving my health and finishing my WIP would both be super fulfilling. And these are both very important to me and I walk through life on a high when I’m in sync with these two things.
Sadly, I’m hesitating on including the first item on my list. Please don’t misunderstand, I absolutely believe it to be very important. However, how do I find that journey fulfilling when it has only brought pain, pain, and more pain to my life in the past fifteen years?
Maybe that’s a clue that love is exactly what I need to focus on at this point in my life? That, and the fact that it was the first thing that came to mind when I brainstormed on the topic.
What do y’all think?
