I searched the information laden internet and found several definitions for the word rut and found what I thought to be the best definition to apply to my current state -- that is my current state until recently. The definition comes from WordNet and is : (n) rut, groove (a settled and monotonous routine that is hard to escape). I'm sure everyone's been there at some point. . feeling trapped or bored with their life, basically sick of doing the same ol' same ol' everyday. Maybe some people even experience "rut cycles" if such a thing exists where they get in these tiny ruts until they find some way to spice up their lives or make them more eventful. I can't pinpoint when all these feelings of unaccomplishment and lack of inspiration started but I can say it lasted for farrrrrrrrrrrrrrr too long. It seemed neverending in fact. .
Until now that is! Hurrah!
What brought me out? It's simple really. Change, that's it. The only thing that can take anyone away from going through the same motions over and over again is just that a change. For me it involved what a lot of folks would probably consider a foolhardy decision but honestly at the time I made my decision I felt it was just something I HAD to do. The end result of my action has yet to be seen but for now so far so good. I'm happier, more motivated, and inspired than before. Is there a much better way to be?
