I think, I started my mid-life crisis, as I have a strong urge to downsize and getting rid of all the clutter in the house, sorting out everything to make life easier, reading up on minimalist life styles, the tiny house movement, throwing stuff away, cleaning out cabinets, scheduled a house cleaning and working with a Life Coach along the way.
I spent a lot of time thinking why I do what I currently do, and what I do not want to or should do, and also what I've done so far with my life and why. I currently read ' Do More Great Work 'and' The Myths of Happiness: What Should Make You Happy, but Does not, What Should not Make You Happy, but Does'. Yeah, very profound.
Gratitude is an important part of feeling happy and a way to a better awareness, so keeping a list with things that you are grateful for or that make you happy and journaling (or in my case 'blogging') are actually really helpful. My life is in a pretty great stage. All is quite cozy. My husband is great. The kids are way easier on me and a lot of fun to have around.
Between 'blogging' and spending way too much time on Facebook lately where I the information overwhelms me and and many news are very superficial, I wanted to write again more privately (diary) and here on my blog.
My coaching homework was to discover my personal highlights and to analyze what made these so special and how I can have more of these meaningful moments. And spending more time on what is important to me before making new plans
