Do you need to reset?

Dreamy and I have just returned from a few days away. We stayed with a close friend in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. While away, we walked different trails, went for coffees and puppachinos and caught up with family and friends.

Often, going away is a catalyst for me to heal and change. Being in a different environment with different relationships gives me a different perspective of life. I have a close relationship with my friend, and we share our thoughts freely. We have been there for each other through our toughest times. She stood beside me as I worked my way out of an emotional and physical hole. Her belief in me has kept me sane many times.

While away, I caught up with another close friend with whom I attended university almost 40 years ago. At that time, I was still living with my family. Our conversation picked up where we had left it, as it does every time we speak. We discussed where our lives had been and our thoughts and feelings about it all. I value these friendships. Although I have not always been the kindest friend, they have stood by me, and vice-versa.

Taking a short break from our reality can be a reset. We tend to get caught in our world and trapped in unhealthy thought patterns. This trip refreshed my mind and soul, it gave me a different way of seeing my experiences, and I was open to see them differently. As I shared with my friends while outside of my normal world, I was able to take on a fresh perspective.

Sometimes, we need to take time from our busy life to connect with those who know us best. We need to hear the voices of those who love us to reassure our heart that we are okay. We need to walk in different places, feel a different atmosphere and soak it all in. Because sometimes we need to reset.

Do you need to reset? Do you need to see life in a fresh way? Message me if you want to chat.
