Sometimes we lose focus of what’s most important to us. It’s easy to do when we get caught up in the details of our daily lives. We spend precious time and energy stressing, caring, worrying about things that either don’t matter to us or don’t serve us in the long run. These distractions erode our quality of life and can ultimately begin to make us feel unhappy or depressed.
What’s important to remember is that each day is a new chance to commit to choices that will help us focus on what matters. Some people find writing in a journal helps them focus. Others may find that attending a place of worship, meditating, or doing yoga helps them avoid the distractions that can leave them feeling off balance. Finding a way to remind ourselves to stay focused on what matters helps us learn to ignore or let go of anything that doesn’t serve us or our personal higher purpose.
