I could let my loneliness eat me alive but instead chose to live in the moment and make an effort to make the most of all of my moments. When I'm feeling blue-ish about my state of loneliness, I remember to feel grateful - immediately. I have learned how to stop myself in my tracks when negative thoughts enter by thanking my lucky stars that I can see, hear, touch, taste & smell. I am the type of person who appreciates the small things in life like getting a couple of green lights in a row when driving to/from the office. I'm grateful for Sunny days when the world looks fresh with light. I remember that things could be a whole lot worse for me. My Big Picture thinking keeps me grounded and grateful.
