I’ve noticed this shift in my thinking and life considerations lately.
That I don’t think so much in terms of who I’m becoming or who I want to be. Projecting myself into the future. Now I think more in terms of who I am.
I’m not saying that I’m closed to changing or learning, that happens still. But more that I have to think more now in terms of who I am.
I’ve kind of stopped striving in some areas. Like striving to be a super house cleaner. Or striving to cook constantly. Or striving to love those things.
It’s more OK with me now to accept my level. It’s a pretty good level, I guess, and works for our varied lives.
Perhaps it’s even more peaceful, to stop striving for some kind of perfection in every area of responsibility. And rather accept that I don’t need perfection, I rather need to determine what is important and focus on that.
This is another shift I’ve noticed about mid-life.
