Is your life on repeat? Sometimes we feel destined to repeat the same day, same week, same month, even the same year over and over again. It’s like you are in a car that is going around and around in the same circle over and over and over again. So how do you take that wheel, straighten it out and get out of that circle? I can seem impossible to do.
I know it may seem hard to believe, but we are not programmed to relive the same things over. I know how easy it is to get into a routine and get comfortable (and I am not talking about just jobs). While jobs can put us into a rut, so can people.
So how do you break the cycle? It’s the question we all want to know. I was there, and I didn’t know what it was like to actually live my life. It took someone else shaking up my life for me to break free. I don’t want you to fall victim to that too. We don’t all have something or someone to pull us out of the mundane, but you can make changes in your life. It may mean getting out of your comfort zone (which can be scary). It may mean distancing people in your life (people whom you may love dearly, but if they are toxic to your life and health, then they are unhealthy).
How do you know what to do? Who is bad? What is boring? You would think it would be clear as day and night, but it isn’t. You don’t see the obvious when you are inside the obvious box. Think of it like this. There is a huge box, on the outside it’s plain and brown and boring, and has “REPEAT” written in actual letters everywhere. However, you are inside the box and you’ve decorated it with your favorite pillows and people and you never see the outside of the box. You are comfortable inside and never realize that you are not truly enjoying what is outside the box waiting for you. Because if break down the box walls you’ll see traveling, meeting new people, and so much more. You don’t see the obvious because you are INSIDE the obvious box.
Maybe you are saying you don’t have the time or money to change your routine. Here’s the funny thing….if it’s important enough to you, you’ll find the time or money. I am not saying you have to change everything all at once. Not many of us are in a situation that allows us to quit/change jobs at the drop of a pin or move homes (or even states). But you can start small. Go to karaoke, zumba, a festival. Once you’ve made a small step it makes the larger steps look smaller.
If you feel like everything is on repeat, then is probably is. Take a moment and evaluate your life and start with a small change. I just want to encourage you to LIVE your life. Don’t let your life control you.
Live Loud my Luvs and cherish your day!
