The drums of boredom play, "Ru-ta-tata-tata-ta-ut!" The drums of the same play,"Ru-ta-tata-tata-ta-ut!" The drums of just maintain plays, "Ru-ta-tata-tata-ta-ut!" And we dance, we dance, all the same.
Ever have things going well but still be in a rut? The times in your life where things aren't bad but aren't great just maintained? Well, welcome to my rut.
Food, maintained and still the same. Weight, maintained and still the same. Working out, maintained (built in variability so I would stick with it) and still the same. Work, maintained and still the same. City I live in...you get the point. My life is "maintained and still the same".
First, this isn't bad. Part of that was getting my eating and health under control and it is. Took almost two weeks off of strenuous working out and didn't gain a pound and maintained body firmness. But other aspects, while not bad, I have been trying to change in my life for a while and no change. Work, City, and Love life are top on my list now that diet and healthy are well maintained. They aren't bad they just are great either.
One of my general beliefs is "Keep Moving Forward!" This is a personal mantra. Yet nothing seems to be happening no matter how hard I try or go with the flow. Sort feel like the Raptors in Jurassic Park testing the fence for weaknesses. Keep trying to find the next big goal, great adventure, or change but just getting shocked and knocked back only to try again.
So what do you do to get out of ruts? New goals? New perspective? Bribe someone to kidnap you and dump you in the middle of a place like Survivor? Would love to know.
Until then, I will play my drum, "Ru-ta-tata-tata-ta-ut" until I don't need one.
