Communication: Journal Prompt 56 – Out of the rut

Looking back on yesterday, do you feel like you have lived that day over & over & over before? If so, how could you mix things up?


YES!  Everyday is the same thing over and over and over.  Get up, go to work, come home, go to sleep.  I’ve been doing it for nearly two years.  No real vacation to speak of.   But by the time this post is live, I will have a cruise booked to look forward to.

Vacations can help you get out of a rut sometimes.  The break in your everyday monotonous routine of work, home, work, home, etc. is so necessary.  Otherwise, work would be your whole life and I can’t imagine that from any job in a cubicle.

Other ways to mix things up for me would be to attend a concert, a jazz festival,  a play, basically any LIVE performance brings me back to life.  Anything could happen at a live event.  It could be a rendition of a song you’ve heard over and over and one that you know inside and out, but when the musician does it live, it’s very different.   I get wrapped up in the moment during live performances….and I love that.
