The happy medium. I was feeling discontented with my pretty nice life recently and couldn’t figure out why. This morning I was thinking about it and realized I had put too much emphasis on getting myself into better alignment with my values without following and seeing all the simple joys in my life. There’s a happy medium. This morning I decided I need to reverse it:

First and foremost, follow my excitement and then, second, if and when things feel off (i.e., I’m not feeling joy and feeling my excitement for life), look at where I might have steered off course and out of alignment.
