"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller
My wife frequently says that I live on "Planet Colin", oblivious to things going on around me. That's, no doubt, largely because of the depression as I tend to shrink inside, unintentionally isolate myself from those around me. I don't mean to, it's just something I've always done, something I need to get out of.
It's all part of why I've been making the changes I have this year: trying to be more positive, more present, and more aware. Writing my daily log is a major factor in this.
The daily log is also there to help me remember the good stuff, what I was thankful for or happy about on that day, the important stuff! Just as Sameer wants to remember so do I, I need to so that I can be more focused, more attentive, and less inclined to recede within my head, my own little world.
Things have been going much better so far in 2020, since deciding to do this, but I recognise there is still a long way to go.
