Lately I have been in one of my quiet reflective moods. It comes with my bi-polar disorder sometimes. I withdraw from people and kind of shell up for a while. I'm not really sad or depressed or anything like that. It's just sometimes I feel the world is a bit too much for me to deal with sometimes, so I limit my exposure to certain things.
These are usually productive times for me, so I have been trying to do some things that I have been putting off for a while. From small things like cleaning my house and organizing, to larger things like working on spots of my life that I need to improve on to maximize my happiness and wellbeing.
I've started reading again which has been productive. I'm still reading Matthew Perry's autobiography which I admit is hard to get through at times. He really is lucky to be alive, alcohol can be such a debilitating force. I've toyed with the idea of going completely sober. The older I get the more I realize just how dangerous alcohol can be. And how easy it is to overindulge and misuse.
I've also been reading the Bible more lately too. I'm trying to incorporate reading from it into my daily routine, whether it's actually opening my bible and reading or using the app on my phone. I'm not always perfect and I forget sometimes but overall, it's been great for me.
