You change your life by changing your heart.
I am working on that. I have been detoxing my life in a lot of ways over the last eight months or so, changing who I associate with, what I put into my body, even the thoughts I think and the way I spend my “free time” – such that it is.
Somewhere along the way, in the midst of all the troubles we’ve had, I fell off the path. I lost my way, I lost my sense of purpose and hope. I hope that I am getting back to a healthy place now, more like ME. I forgot to be true to myself, and that really makes life a struggle.
Ways that I’ve been working on all of this are journaling, goal-setting, doing some painful inventorying of my life. I’ve taken days off the computer. I’ve taken entire days out of the house in silence. I’ve started reading again – and consequently, looked hard at the ways I had been spending my time. I’ve slowly started breaking bad habits, trying to substitute good ones – i.e., reading for computer games, fruit for sweets, etc.
