Home is where your refuge is – where your people are – the ones who support you and nourish you even though they know everything about you.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself a weirdo to be your friend, never ever let them go. Especially if they enjoy your unique brand of weird too.
Sometimes people like to recommend doing one thing each day that scares you. Perhaps instead, do at least one thing each day that fills you with joy.
I don’t know about ya’ll, but often I feel like I am the odd one out. Fear of missing out, or FOMO, sometimes can cause me a lot of anxiety. Take a step back, appreciate the moment and be in the now.
Perhaps consider this weekend assuming that everything is going to go right. Assume the best of yourself, of those around you, of strangers, and the universe at large.
If you do your best and you don’t succeed the first time – keep trying, your best can always get better.
Where do you belong? Finding friends or family to spend time with has a positive impact. the more social support you have in your life can decrease stress and is statistically correlated with better mental and physical health.
