Are you feeling a little isolated, closed in, shut off from the rest of the world?
Life is what we make of it! Are you the person who everyone wonders, “what happened to them”? Think about how you used to enjoy your free time, doing things other than catching up on television shows, playing video games or finding now yourself regularly drinking alone. A solution to not getting bogged down, is not to allow yourself to be totally consumed by one thing (work, children, television, caring for others or even fear). If you are not happy with how life is, make up your mind to try and make some changes.
If you miss your friends, reach out to them, call them. If you feel isolated, get up, get out and do something, if only going for a walk to take in some fresh air, and enjoy the outdoors. I have always noticed when I’m walking or running, I think about nothing other than what I see, it’s so refreshing.
Don’t allow your past year to define your next year. The mind is a powerful thing. The bible says, “As a man thinks, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).
