Right now, my life is actually so badly out of whack that my family's starting to worry. Or... they're starting to worry out loud. It's a good thing that they do, though, because that brings it to my attention.
Because the thing with my balance issues is that it's rarely ever a big thing that tips me to one side or the other. It starts small, but grows until I look around me, struggling to understand why I've let things go so far.
That's where I am. I mean, my life's good. It's comfortable... I'm in a routine and things are going, even if they don't go as smoothly as expected.
But it took a long conversation last night to realize that I've somehow managed to let all aspects to my life except for the farm and my writing dwindle to next to nothing.
And that just isn't healthy.
In fact, as much as I love the farm and writing, it's not even living.
So I need to get back into the living habit once more.
1) Moving around more (yay exercise to help budge weight)
2) Connecting more with God, family, friends and even new acquaintances.
3) Getting out more, even if it's just to write in a new location.
4) Changing up my activities. I have so many things I love to do, but just don't make time for. Now's when I start making time.
It might sound strange, but life's just not all it could be when we're stuck in ruts. Luckily, changing things up is only as easy as changing up a bit. That's exactly what I'm going to do.
Because I don't just want to write and work on a farm. I want to live.
Anyone else feeling stuck in a rut? What do you need to do to escape yours?
