If you have thoughts that your life today is not like your life ten or more years ago or even six months ago, you may be right, however, you suffer. You cling to the past which incurs more suffering. Your past is gone. Your life is today and your life tomorrow will be different yet again.
Life/Work harmony is about peace. When you are at peace with yourself, you will make choices that easily work for you.
It is difficult to be at peace if you are suffering which means you are in a negative space. Negative emotions are the result of labeling. It goes directly to your fears. Your fears are both real and not-real. Real because you are attached to them, are holding on tight; not-real because you made them up.
Don’t cling to what might have been, how you may have looked better twenty years ago; that part of your life is over. You are you today in the here and now.
Enjoy your life, your work in whatever form it is in, as it is today.
You sometimes think if you get a different job, choose a different partner, lose weight, your life will change. All you are doing is thinking that if you get rid of or change something about yourself, you will be happier or more at peace. You are stuck in the past. Where is your future? Your ego is holding on your past by forcing you to compare today with all your yesterdays.
This will not work. Listen to these thoughts as they come up, briefly, without judgment, then let them go.
Let go of holding on to thoughts that will never change your life. It is the holding on, the grasping, the huge desires you have that will interfere with your sense of peace, therefore you will not have any life/work or any harmony in your life.
