What's Happening In Your World
By Jesse Herriott As the New Year approaches, I can’t help but reflect on my life thus far. Like many people, 2012 has been an interesting year for me; full of adjustments, achievements, disappointments, and accomplishments. Yet, one of my major accomplishments in 2012 was that I believe that I’ve found my own personal flow. It is easy to assume that you’ve found your pace in life when things are going the way you planed, but it is during those awkward times that you truly get a realistic picture of what you’re capable of. One of the major problems with reflection is that if you spend too much time dwelling on how disappointed you are in one or more areas of your life, it can set you back a bit. But, if you can find a way to take a realistic look at the circumstances surrounding your decisions this year, you can use that information to put your finger on your life’s pulse. There are some folks who will make New Year’s resolutions that will extend way beyond what they are actually capable of accomplishing, and then shoot themselves in the leg when they don’t accomplish those goals at the end of the year. Then there are some who will compare what they believe they can do and what they would like to accomplish, with what they believe they saw someone else accomplish. Both of these scenarios will set you up for disaster. This type of self-sabotage is the worst kind because they usually lead to states of guilt, blame and depression because they aren’t in line with who you really are and what you are able to accomplish. So the real questions would be “what will it take for you to be happy”; and “what do you need to do you?” Whether you are comparing yourself to someone else, or comparing yourself to some false expectation of what you think you should be, do or have, the problem of comparison is a huge one. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, as long as it is legal. Figure out what works for you and if you really want to see progress, ask yourself which of your values are standing between the life you’re living and the life you want to live. It is true that if you follow your values, you can see where all of your money, time and energy go. We always make time for whatever we place value on. So in 2013, don’t just do something; Do You! And let the chips fall where they may; it will all work out for your good. Jesse Herriott is an ordained priest; writer and adjunct professor in Atlanta, GA.
