Every Monday, I love receiving emails from my favorite blog becauseimaddicted, who wrote about topics in regards to healthy living and wellness. Sometimes there were wellness challenges that didn’t feel like challenges because they were topics that I felt helped better my mental and physical health.
With that said, I decided to create my own spin on a Wellness Wednesday series discussing topics from healthy living experiments I will do the week before and discuss how it’s changed my health like cutting back on sugar experiment or cutting technology out for X amount of days.
Last week was the first official week of 2018. As I took time to reflect the year before, I realized 2017 was a year of making and learning from my mistakes, while also learning where I stood with people who are my friends to this day and to the people I thought who were my friends that it was time to draw a line for me to find what that healthy balance could be.
After coming head to head with this New Year’s Eve/Day, I decided to not waste time with the ghosts of 2017 but to move forward devoting time with family and friends who rode with me through thick and thin of 2017 to 2018 than people who didn’t share the same definition of what it means to be friends with someone or maybe didn’t really intend on wanting to be my friend.
It may seem a bit harsh to do but at the same time, you may need to look at what’s best and what’s healthy for your life. Is it healthy to have someone be in your life when it’s only convenient and good on their terms or is better to only surround yourself with people that will be there thick, thin, highs and lows? I challenge you guys this week to scope out your contact list and decide, who’s really worth making time for and who’s not and learn the easy way than the hard way. When I look back at 2017, sometimes I even question why didn’t I stay home instead of when I knew I was gonna have a bad time, So let me know in the comments below if you find that this has helped you in any way or is there any other way to find that balance.
