How do you go about making decision related to your identity? Maybe that’s an odd way of putting this.
How do you decide on what to major in or what career to pursuit? Or what to have for lunch? Or where to move?
Of everything to do and to be how do you know what suits you? Can you find out by inquiring into yourself and what do you ask?
I suppose I try to picture a kind of montage of my life, or even just an ideal day, and then I ask myself what I need to do to make my life more compatible with that dream.
What’s your ideal morning routine, and what are you passionate enough about to jump out of bed for every day?
What things in your life are holding you back from that? Which of those things can you easily get rid of, and which ones, if any, are impossible to remove from your life?
I find that writing has a way of bringing out answers that previously felt buried or non existent. I just ask myself a question and start writing, even if the answer is “I Dont know” and if I keep going I usually receive clarity or insights that I did not even realize I had.
It’s real simple I try to do as many things that fill me with joy or excites me as I possibly can. I don’t take myself or my life to serious. If it sounds like fun or one hell of a story to tell, I’m game. It’s not like there is one right choice, there is a lot of them, and if I choose something that turn out not so great, I just choose something different. I have done this a couple times, but I end up with a nice engineering-degree that I’m really happy about. It’s like buying a sweater, sometimes you gotta try it on, to see it doesn’t fit.
