A little bit of distance has shown me how easy it can be to lose track of one’s state of mind. As much as it sounds like the spiel of some awful corporate strategy to enthuse workers, self-reflection really is key if you want to be happy with yourself – at least for people who, like myself, are prone to over-thinking.
I’m still battling with a sense of lost control – it’s as if, without reminding myself of the things I do to feel successful, I will lose them. With this in mind, I’ve made a short list of these things and – stay with me here – mapped them onto a ‘personal timetable’.
Now, I know this could be a disaster, a clinical attempt to strap down my personality, but I’m goign to give it a short., Ironically, I planned this post to revolve around not taking life too seriously. I guess I’m vaguely hoping that, through these quite ‘organised’ means, I’ll be allowed to relax… We’ll see.
