Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Feeling stressed lately? When you sit back and assess whether or not your current career track, lifestyle and commitments are in proper harmony with your sense of self, do you find the answer lacking?

Rachel* at SoHoTampa does, and finds she has plenty of company.

As for myself, I’ve felt out of kilter for so long that I’m not sure I’d recognize a balanced existence anymore. The trick may be to achieve a re-formed balance out of the chaos you create. If anyone figures out how to do that before reaching, say, age 40, drop me a line.

Talk of being out of sorts in life brings to mind the excellent visuals from Koyaanisqatsi. Naturally enough, since the title of the movie is meant to evoke this feeling:

koy.aa.nis.qat.si (Hopi) [n]
1. Crazy life.
2. Life out of balance.
3. Life disintegrating.
4. Life in turmoil.
5. A way of life that calls for another way of living.

That last definition is most intriguing: “A way of life that calls for another way of living”. If things get that out of whack, to the point where achieving the end result becomes improbable, the situation demands switching gears. That might be the biggest trick of all.
