I am experiencing what I would refer to as a “more than a quarter but less than a mid-life crises.” The alarm clock rings at 5 am, and I have this overwhelming sense of “…and now I have to wake up and do it ALL over again?!?” Many other women I know who are around my age (early to mid thirties) are experiencing similar things, so at least I know I am in good company. I just can’t shake the feeling of being in a rut (even though every day moves at the speed of lightning and I keep my life FULL of interesting experiences). I have no good reason to feel down about anything. I have a secure job, supportive family, and lots of healthy hobbies. So… ???
Knowing that complaining will do me no good, I started to seek out ways I could make small changes in my life. On impulse, I bought three sessions of acupuncture through Living Social. I have never considered acupuncture before, but I am excited to give it a try. I need to restore some balance. Stay tuned.
Additionally, a friend of mine turned me onto the “21 Day Meditation Challenge.” It has Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra’s names all over it, so again, I figured… I’ve never been much of the meditating type, but why not give it a go? I am only on day 3, but I am already starting to rewire some of my thinking. Here is the link for more information, if you’d like to give it a try: Meditate it Forward | Free Meditation | Pass it On.
Working on ME for a bit so that one day, when the time is right, I can be a GREAT mom! 🙂
