I love taking a moment to settle my mind. So many emotions can build up behind your conscious while weeks go by. Sometimes it is the most important thing to just sit down and think about the bad feelings, the guilt, the shame, and the grudges that are building up in your mind. Write them down, deal with them one by one. Talk to people that you feel tensions with, honestly and openly. Ask forgiveness where it is needed, make amends where they are necessary. Pray if you believe in the Lord and lay your heart before him. Maybe call up a friend that you haven’t spoken to in a long while. Deal with life. It is yours, and you live it. You may as well take care of maintenance every now and then. You may realize that the ‘maintenance’ is where the joy of life is found.
