“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” -Will Rogers
Every so often we may find that we have become stagnant in life. We just get stuck. Now this does not always mean we are depressed or unable to take care of daily life functions. For some, things can actually be going okay. We just decide that because things are okay, then we don’t have to do anything. But are we really satisfied with being “okay”? Is that all we want in life? Is it enough to just be content? The immediate response for many of us might be, “yes”. But let’s think about this for a moment. The world is changing around us and, in many areas, at a rapid rate. If we are not evolving with it, there is a chance we might get run over. I don’t know about you, but I do not want to get run over; especially when things are okay.
So my challenge to you this month is to simply Do Something. First pick a goal. Will it be better self-care, more relaxation, going back to school, finding a new job, getting over that break up? Once you have identified the goal, do something related to it everyday. Yes everyday. I can’t wait to hear how it goes. I am looking forward to some wonderfully positive life habits being developed. Now get to it!
