Months ago, as I was browsing through an old magazine waiting to be donated to some charity, I’ve read a one-page advertisement that says we should take time to detox. I think it was in a form of a reminder from some tea company, health supplement supplier or spa. But anyway, the thing is that we should not only detoxify and cleanse ourselves from the physical aspects, but also the emotional and psychological facets of our being.
What gives? Let’s face it. We all get stuck in ruts from time to time. We get off track and lose sight of the life we meant to live. I know I’m probably not the only one who has wished that I could find a reset button for life.
As one of the main purpose of this blog is to touch on this “button,” here are things which can make us reflect and help us start out the next year anew. You can maybe listen to some poignant music while reading, or bookmark this so that you can “detox” once in a while.
Think of your favorite smell, your favorite food, movie, book, song… and then relive them.
Think of your happy childhood memories, then recreate them.
Think of your funny photos and let joy alter your face.
Think about the people who remembered your birthday, your occasions and events.
Think about the people who remembered you just because.
Think about the people who are still there with you and those who are not.
Think about the people you’ve been meaning to talk to, and talk to them.
Think about the people you love the most, and tell them.
Think about your family, and appreciate them.
Think about the things that lie in the back of your mind, and place them in front of your eyes.
Think of all your accomplishments and smile.
Think of all the mind blowing things you’re capable of, and blow minds.
Think of all the places and people you want to see, and make sure you see them before you leave the world.
Think about the mistakes you did and learn and the ones you evaded, and be proud.
Think about your insecurities, then drop it.
Think about the things you like that nobody else likes and feel special.
Think about the weird things you do, then embrace them.
Think about yourself, and see you through the eyes of someone who loves you.
Think of all your recollections and realize that you’re the only one that has them.
Think of your bottomless worries and remember it could have been worse.
Think of your dreams and let them escape imagination.
Think of your life then believe that everything happens for a reason.
Think that the only thing standing between you and what you want, is you.
Think of all the things that make you feel beautiful, and then do them.
Think of all the people who once hurt you, and forgive them
Think of who you were, who you are now. Then forgive yourself.
We’re alive today for a reason. The least we can do? Think BIG, act BIGGER.
