How to Decide What You Really Want
By Susan Ann Darley
As a creative person do you find your head often filled with an abundance of ideas or your studio filled with too many uncompleted projects? Do you get excited about one thing until the next brilliant idea bumps it from view?
When a person has an expansive imagination and/or a multitude of talents, it's easy to live on overload, be it in your head or on your desk. From this scattered environment your energy becomes depleted and often a "why try" attitude takes over. Or the opposite effect of panic ensues and you work faster and harder to "make it happen."
This fragmented approach to living is emotionally and physically draining. The antidote lies in deciding what you really want.
What you want is basically determined from two levels. From the personality you know that aspect of yourself that is ego driven, loveable one minute and neurotic the next. Or from your soul the deeper aspect of yourself that "knows" the right choice for you to make in any situation.
Taking the time to connect with your soul your inner wisdom is the key to deciding and creating what you really want. This is where you move from child to adult with your vision.
Five Characteristics of Soulful Living:
The critical ingredient you need in order to be guided by your inner wisdom is willingness. The willingness to learn how to become quiet, to trust, discern, communicate, let go, assert, collaborate, cooperate, act responsibly and value yourself and others.
Too tall of an order? Then ask yourself what do you really want?
