Taking a Break

Sometimes you just need to take a break. Though I have had a lot of free time on my hands, I have tried to keep busy with various volunteer activities. I have stepped back my fraternity and political involvement recently. Politics is really tough work and I found myself doing things I really disliked, such as cold calling and knocking on strangers' doors. It is part of the political world but not really mine. I feel like I have lost myself in my various extra curricular activities and need to re-focus on what I want right now in life. I have felt like I was being pulled all over the place and concentrating on goals that were not my own. I have decided to take some time to myself to really look at what I need to do for me. I am always there for other people and not always there for myself. That has to change. The bigger and more complicated question is "What do I want?" The problem is that I want so much and for a lifetime have tried several things at a time and have not really focused on one particular objective. That, to be honest, has not worked out so well. So, time to get my personal act together and focus on what I want by looking at where I can be of most help. There is a great deal I can offer to a group or organization and I need to take the time to seriously finally figure it all out.
