A New Outlook

I need a new outlook on life. The past several months have been incredibly stressful and depressing, and they are taking a toll. I really noticed it over the weekend.

I try to stay positive on a daily basis, focusing on the things that make the day great instead of what makes it terrible. But that’s been tough, and I find myself being incredibly angry and disappointed more often than I probably should be.

I used to live my life like that back in the day, but I’ve been trying really hard to make a conscious effort to be happy. It’s not always easy, and the world keeps throwing me curve balls, but something has to change. It’s exhausting being angry all the time. And I’m sure my boys would really appreciate it if I stopped yelling.

Aside from trying to focus on the positive, I’m not really sure what else to do to change my outlook. What are some things you do to get you through stressful/depressing time?

I use yoga - which you probably hate to think of....zombie yoga, could be a thing. Also friends always help take my mind off stuff and taking time to do something, no matter how small that I enjoy. BW

I've been considering yoga recently. Everyone tells me that it can be incredibly relaxing, but it's also challenging. I might figure out how to do zombie yoga...

Maybe I need to do another book club! :)

Thanks for the comment!
