A powerfully simple Goal Balance that happened during my Synthesis class. Christmas was on the horizon and I was looking for relief from the usual weight of ALL that needs to get done during the holidays. I could not see any way around my usual dread, and was unable to understand looking forward to this time of year. I say usual. That usual is gone. Though, holiday stress was a major symptom (and the funny little addendum at the end of it, seems pretty specific,) the far reaching effects of this balance cannot be overstated. Goal Statement: I am free to allow other's to to take responsibility for themselves. I find joy in the chaos.
Little did I realize how far reaching this balance was going to be! I had been feeling stuck about a particular decision for months. Pro/Con lists were getting me nowhere - there was plenty of good on both sides of the equation. I simply could not process what direction I wanted to take. I was completely stuck. I did not realize how much it was affecting my moods, my focus, my outlook, and every other decision that I was making until after I was balanced for it. When I stopped focusing on making the decision, and reframed my thinking to pinpoint what would make it EASY - Everything changed. After the balance I felt so light, so free and full of joy; and making decisions felt simple. The Goal Statement: I feel free moving forward. I am confident making choices that bring me joy.
