There comes a time in your life when things are just so routine that life isn’t fully lived or enjoyed. I was discussing this subject with a friend this morning. I stated that I really don’t want life to go back to normal. Not my normal anyway. He messaged one word. Reboot. Hence the birth of this blog.
My mind has been spinning with ideas and new dreams. My youngest son and his family left everything here and moved to a faraway place for a new beginning with all new adventures. I am very excited for them. These past several days I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this and wondering what prevents me from doing the same. What holds me back? I don’t want my life to return to my old normal. Maybe I do need to reboot. Hopefully, I can make this happen in one way or another. There are many things to consider but life is about change and taking chances. Not sure what reboot means for me. It could mean something wonderful. It definitely means change. I can’t get around that. So only time will tell.
Do you want to go back to your pre-Covid life? Do you need to reboot? Sometimes change is necessary. Sometimes it’s about letting go. Realizing you need to let go.
I hope that you spend some of your time during this downtime to reflect on your life. Make mental notes or start a journal. What needs to change? What areas need improvement? What’s holding you back? What should you pursue, and what should you let go of? It’s not always going to be easy because change often hurts. But remaining in the same situation is often painful too. Just know that taking positive steps forward just might be the right thing to do in the long run. You never know until you try.
I hope your day is good. Keep a positive attitude. Get outside if you can today. And always be grateful. ♥️
