A good friend (and amazing art therapist) came over last night for dinner and was tooling around in my workspace. She illuminated the fatal flaw from the pie charts. Several of you also pointed it out. (Leslie, Victoria, I’m looking at you.)
Integration is the key. Combining. Overlapping. Interlocking. I am better focused now after speaking with her. I have clarity again. I remember my bigger-picture goals and I feel like i’m back on track.
- Taking a walk with a friend and bringing the dogs along, rather than always just going out to dinner = fun + chores + health.
- Photographing a project I do for work, or bleeding the project out into one of my own journal quilts or blog entries = work + creativity + fun.
- Taking the stairs, avoiding the cookie counter at work, and planning ahead for snacks = work + health.
At least I made sure not to overlap the dating stripe into the work wedge. Some things just aren’t made for integrating.
