rut-breaker

Sometimes you really need to do something different to shake the rut loose. Feeling better isn’t always about routine and patience when you feel down or fatigued. Do something. Break out of the confines of Rut-hood. Stuck-in-bed woods. Habits that once served, dried up at he foot of your bed and around the sink, in the tub, on your desk–like dead skin. Molting isn’t always obvious, and its completion isn’t always evident. You’ve plateaued after some time of passionate skin shedding, shimmying out of old patterns, roles, habits.

All of that, just to forget the task at hand, grow weary, and slip back into skin more comfortable. Then, have the nerve to resent the old skin, feel stifled and sleepy! Silly. It’s time to do something different. Break routine. Start climbing again. You’ve rested long enough. Meditated more than enough. There’s no progress left in stasis. You’ve finished the metamorphosis just to gently hang in the confines of the cozy chrysalis you’ve worked so hard to leave.

Push out, go forth, drop down, go up. New skin, new wings, new form, new routine–whatever metaphor you like–just do it.

Break out, venture in.
