The Charlois Life

Greetings.  Tonight, I want to talk a little bit about what I’ve been working on in therapy.  My last session was this past Friday and we covered a lot of ground.  One of the things I’ve been struggling with is my apathy.  I can’t seem to find the motivation to accomplish things.  Amy, my therapist and I have determined that a possible reason is that I don’t have a primary, driving goal.  So, we brainstormed, and we discovered that one goal that has been in the background my whole life is to be the best version of who I was created to be.  So, we discussed the possibility of focusing on that as my driving force in life.  But what does the best version of me look like.  That is my homework assignment for next session. 

The question now becomes, who do I want to be when I grow up?  First of all, I want to be challenged.  I want to constantly be growing and learning.  To become a Renaissance man if you will.  To know a little something about a whole spectrum of subjects.  Therefore, I’m embarking on a journey / quest to realize that dream.  I will be reading widely, both Britannic’s Great Books, and the best books of the last 100 years.  I will study math and languages, art and music; subjects that would be covered in a good college liberal arts program.  There will also be my goal of being fit in all eight dimensions of wellness: Spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual, social, environmental, occupational, and financial.  But that is only the beginning.

Knowing is only part of the equation.  I also have to apply it by contributing in some way.  That brings up some other goals.  I am a writer, writing both books and a blog.  If I focus on inspirational, self-help titles and blog about my quest; maybe my work will contribute to the well being of society.  The best version of me that I can envision.

That’s an update for now, expect more in the future.

Until next time,

God be with you,

Yancy Adamson

  1. You’ve touched a nerve or two, Yancy. Apathy. Feels very much like what I’m experiencing lately. My apathy covers a wide range of subjects about which I would normally care deeply. In fact, I’m not sure i care about much of anything, and that’s a scary place to be. I’ll be doing some thinking….thanks.
