We all let it happen at times. A little at a time it creeps up on us and before we know it we have allowed something or maybe someone to erode how we are. It may not happen quickly at first, maybe it is slow and subtle, and before you know it you have let a part of you to be impacted. Maybe you realize that the shine has been worn off or things just don't seem to get you as jazzed up as they use to and before long you feel your spirit being taken away, bit by bit.
You can keep it from happening, you do control how you act and react, but yes, it can be hard to not let it happen. Whether it is just with time, due to life or because of something major that happens in your life you can control letting it happen to you. Giving in to letting things erode our spirit for life is totally within our control.
Change your view or your venue and make those few little changes that can make a difference. Phone a friend, plan a trip, evaluate your goals and plans or just read a really good book. What ever it is make those necessary changes and adjustments to keep your spirit alive and moving you forward everyday.
