Sometimes I need to be around upbeat, positive and creative people. Other times, I’m yearning for some peace and quiet by myself in order to give my mind some space to wander. And yet there are other times when I’m longing for some one on one time with my wife.

The older I get the more clear to me what it is that I need in order to strike balance in my life. This includes diet, exercise, socializing, deep thinking and creating. For this I’m grateful.

Knowing what one needs in order to get clarity, rejuvenate oneself, rest or knowing how to put yourself in an environment where you can create and/or problem solve is priceless.

And the only way to find that out is by experimenting. I’m pretty sure it’s not by death-scrolling on social media.
