Have you ever found yourself trying to keep up with far more things than is realistically possible? In this information age, most of us are guilty of exerting far too much energy trying to fill our lives with plenty of extra stuff. When we think we’re enriching our lives, we’re probably actually overloading them.
Having lots of interests isn’t really the problem. But, when life has obligations for you to complete, sometimes it’s really hard to know what to let go. Or, sometimes it’s much too easy to let certain important things get away. How much do we keep in our lives that’s actually superfluous and getting in the way of what we truly care about?
Kudos to those who can go about their business unfazed by the constant bombardment of advertising we encounter on a daily basis. Too many things compete for our attention, even if we don’t realize it. A lot of it is because big business has commercialized everything to death. It’s so easy to become overloaded by all of the options that modern life presents us with almost every hour of our lives.
You really just have to go with whatever fuels you and stick to it. Some people try to take part in a little bit of everything. I’ve never been much of a sampler myself, but to each their own.
Just always keep in mind to keep those you love and depend on you first. Don’t let any hobbies or interests take you away from them on a regular basis. That’s an area where keeping up is paramount. You really don’t want to fall too far behind.
