Inspiration: Time to Re-Evaluate

Sometimes you just have to start over.
Or take a different approach.
Make a new plan of attack.

Sometimes things happen in our lives and we get suck in them. They take all our energy and focus.  We  end up losing ourselves. Losing our goals, our future, even our happiness. We may become depressed. Secluded. Alone but surrounded. Suffocated by this situation or circumstance.
When you get in these situations, it can be hard to get yourself out before you get so low you hit bottom. And sometimes you don't know where to start.

I am a [very] emotional person by nature. I tend to think, process, over work everything in my brain. Sometimes harping on it and making it a situation worse than it is.
Even someone not as emotional as me, can go through something similar.

So here are some processes that I use when I need to re-evaluate my situation and my way of thinking, and therefore, acting.

  • Take some time out of your day to stop. Time to think. Time to make a plan of attack.
  • Make a list of the things you want to do or accomplish in the NEAR future. Don't choice anything to long term; sometimes seeing yourself reach goals quickly helps you keep commitments and encourages more goals.
  • Start a journal or a notebook. Some people don't like to write down their feelings or daily activiies but that brings up the next tip...
  • Say your goals out loud. Making a promise to yourself can be simple and effective. Easy to hold yourself accountable.

Some times allowing your mind to slow down, forget the pain that may be holding you down can clear the way for the new.
It should be simple and easy [so you wont make excuses not to do it].
Simple and easy can be effective and life changing!
