This past semester was definitely the most hectic that I have experienced so far. Not only were my classes more rigorous, but there were other obligations that demanded more time from me. Despite my attempts to cut back on various activities that I enjoyed , including interning with Campus Calm, there was always something that needed to be taken care of and my stress level remained high. Unfortunately, the constant demands of my schedule made it difficult for me to find time to invest in myself and spend time with friends, ending my semester with less than what was hoped for.
Thus, reflecting these past few weeks has helped me better understand my limits and what I want to prioritize. I have a clearer vision of how I want to live my life and that involves not only putting more time into my relationships with other people but also my relationship with myself. I find myself easily getting caught up in the details of life and what I ought to be doing that sometimes, I just need to take a step back and ask myself whether or not I am putting my energy where I want it to be—if I am actually pursuing my passions and living my life how I want to live it.
There is definitely nothing wrong with taking some time to yourself, especially if it is to reflect on and evaluate your life and if it is how you want it to be. When was the last time you took some time for yourself? Are there any changes that you wish to make to improve your life? Leave me a comment!
