Now is the only moment we have to make changes in our lives. Sitting there and thinking, wishing that things will change doesn't make them change.

I've been wishing I could distance myself for a while now. Not distance in a bad way, but a healthy way. I feel like I spend so much time thinking about what could be happening around me that I ignore the things going on inside of me. (No, not indigestion.)

As a teen, I would often go long periods without access to the internet, or even a phone. I didn't exactly have a choice, but it did give me time to slow down and think. I could actually hear myself...think. I don't have much of a reason to sit with my thoughts in silence anymore, and that bothers me.
