Chaos Reigned

This will be a short post today. I have a lot of new subscribers and I am so thankful that you are now following my blog.

Yesterday, I was looking through literary quotes, including a lot of Harry Potter quotes. The one that struck me most was “chaos reigned” from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It struck me because it occurred to me that the level of chaos in my life right now is below what I am used to. In general, I am fueled by being busy and having so much to do that if I do not keep a strict schedule I simply will not be able to accomplish my entire to-do list. At this point, I am two days ahead in the areas that I can get ahead in, and it’s honestly causing me more stress.

If you are feeling like your life is out of balance for any reason, take some inventory. Figure out what it is that is causing the imbalance and then figure out if there is anything you can do about it. If so, decide how you will take action. If not, decide what you can do instead to restore some good vibes. We all have an “optimal operating level,” and that is different for everybody. Figure out what yours is, and do your best to live in it.
