An active young person will help you to see what is missing.
By lifting someone else up when they are in need of a boost, you ultimately raise your own sense of pride and accomplishment. Helping someone else is a terrific way to lift your mood and give yourself a sense of purpose. If that sense of purpose is missing lately, look around you for simple ways that you can help someone else. It doesn't have to be a big effort; every little bit counts.
Magical thinking, whereby you hope that something happens without any real effort, is not a practical way to get things moving.
