I haven’t decided whether a quarterlife crisis (QLC) is a good thing. I think in hindsight and probably at a time during the process of finding yourself when the road is clear is when it will seem like a great thing. But right now, it is daun-ting. I’m staying at my mom’s house for a while. I figured it was fitting: to start at the place where your life began, where simple memories began. And I can build from there. I slept in my old room last night, sheltered by all the things I had acquired after leaving the nest. It was actually pretty scary.
I’m awake this morning and I’m ready to begin. I’ve got a plan for this week.
Phase 1: Listening and Letting Go
Day 1: Clearing and Cleansing. Yard work, planting, listening, meditation, water water water.
Day 2: Consumption and Cleansing. Reading, listening, meditation.
Day 3: Reduction and Letting Go. List everything on Craigslist, prepare for a yard sale.
Day 4: Thinking and Listening.
Day 5: Existing.
Day 6-7: Yard Sale and Preparing for the Phase.
This is not my game plan to getting through this QLC, but it’s a start. I realize that I may need more than a week to figure things out. I’ve made sure to let myself have time to listen to my heart, mind, body. Ultimately, it’s all about figuring out what I want. So, let’s get this started.
