But I am trying my best to recover my focus, my life, and my attitude.
I really don’t know why, but I have been in a funk, or a rut, or something along those lines, for quite some time. Everybody has down periods and the like, but it has really been difficult for me to get motivated.
At any rate, I am trying now to pull myself out of this. I am trying to take better care of myself – eating better, getting more exercise, and trying to pay attention to what my body is telling me.
I am trying to take better care of myself mentally – by reading, writing, and focusing on goals, like posting articles on a blog that I keep. I have gotten good feedback in the past and I really think I should keep going and grow my blog and see where it goes. I am trying to read more, both for fun and to broaden my horizons. I want to expose myself to new ideas and keep growing, not just muddle about with my long-held opinions. You never know what you might learn, if you just open yourself up to the possibilities.
I am trying to take better care of myself emotionally as well. I have a dear friend and I try to talk to him regularly, to check in and let him know how I am doing and what I’m thinking about. I also check in on him, to make sure he’s doing well. Reaching out is really helping me – it is helping me see past my own issues and to celebrate others’ successes and good times as well. He’s teaching me a lot about how to truly be friend, how to truly listen, and so much more.
