There are some days that life, or at least a part of life, gets overwhelming. The world might feel like it's closing in around you. You might not sure what task to tackle next. How do you get out of the rut in order to help yourself while also living up to the expectations of others?
If you're expecting a magic answer here, you might want to hit Google again. You won't find it here. Some days I feel pretty darn lost. Then again there are some days where I feel I've found my path and faced in the right direction. Then some days I feel a mixture of both.
In a month we will be ringing in the new year. It's hard to believe that it's almost 2019! It's the time when so many make resolutions, knowing the odds of breaking them are not looking good.
I should probably take a step back, take a deep breath, and remember it's still the end of November. I don't need to take that magic cure-all pill. I need to look at my life, my health, and my goals to see what is really important in my life. I need to decide which direction I want 2018 to take. But, again, before getting too into that, let's make it through the month of December first (as well as tomorrow, the last day of November).
Focus on the Thanksgiving message: counting blessings! Once I force myself to see everything I have going for me, it helps me to see where my life seems to be heading. It helps me to tweak my goals and life plans as I work toward being a healthier person in general.
Think about what you want for you. Not what others want for you or what you think you "should" do. Tweak these goals as you accomplish the little steps, keeping in mind your overall goal... a long and healthy life.
