Sometimes, I realize that I’ve been in a rut. But funnily enough, I didn’t know I was in that bad of a rut until I’m out of it! Has that ever happened to you? If so, you’ll know that it just feels like nothing will ever change and it’s easy to get depressed and feeling hopeless about things. Then, suddenly, when the bottom doesn’t feel good anymore, the cloud suddenly lifts.

Maybe it’s because you get tired of yourself finally and find that you’re ready for a change. Maybe it’s because feeling worried or bad about things gets just plain boring anymore. Whatever it is, I’m over it, whatever “it” is, or was. I’m ready for a change. And that doesn’t mean getting in the car and taking a drive to Albuquerque either (I live in Massachusetts.) Even though I’ve had ideas about maybe visiting a friend who sounds like she could use some company. Or, maybe just change my routine, big time. Whatever it is, I’m ready.

And, I’ve got some good ideas about what’s going to be different too. It’ll be fun to see how it all turns out too! Sometimes, I think the human psyche has its limits for feeling a certain way. Maybe it helps to unload on some poor hapless listener. Being resilient means snapping back from being stretched too thin for too long. Maybe not. It doesn’t really matter, does it?
