Sort My Life Out

This is a bit of a change for me, my articles are usually directed towards some sort of niche or category but this one will cover the need to sort my life out. Sounds pretty drastic really doesn't it? Recently I have noticed that I split my time between my son, my online work and my physical day job. Although I love what I do for a living I could not help but notice the empty spaces in my life. I did a bit of research, started a blog to record my progress and this is what I came up with.

If your asking the question 'how do I sort my life out?' then you should also be asking the question 'why do I feel the need to sort my life out?'. I didn't ask myself this question to begin with - I danced around it feeling that the answers I was looking for were right in front of my face and when handled correctly would simply vanish.

This was obviously not the case! Depression is a word that would have been laughed at in the workplace about thirty years ago and today it is taken much more seriously. When I tried to sort my life out initially it took me a while to admit to myself I was depressed. Whilst working and earning and enjoying what I was doing I was unhappy in other aspects of life.

I believe that subliminally I was disappointed with the man I had become. I'm not saying I'm some sort of anti-social freak here, I'm just pointing out that I had made a lot of mistakes in wrong choices. So what did I do to try and sort my life out? First of all I made a plan simply by writing down things I thought I needed to change to lead a fuller life.

This plan has become very important to me and I stick to it every day - no matter how hard that seems. This plan does not have to be large, in fact, the smaller the better. Before I wrote down my particular plan I looked into certain concepts of 'karma'. Whilst not fully believing in all aspects of karma I did pick up a few pointers I used in my plan.

My main reason to sort my life out is the realization that I have left things go to far. By blogging my doubts and worries every day I hope to achieve a more balanced life and also aid others by stopping them from making the same mistakes I have made.
