Today I want to talk about getting off the merry-go-round. You know that cycle part of your life where everything becomes routine, the same ole same, different day but same thing? It’s time you do yourself a favor and step off that circular ride, especially the one that no longer thrills you.
I’ve lived through many merry-go-rounds in my life. I’ve noticed I’ve succumbed to the routine of things in life to point of stagnation and familiarity. Once that stalemate sets in it’s hard to leave and I start to go on auto-pilot. The thing about routine is that you have to notice it is happening and then realize what part of it is not pushing you forward. I’ve found that’s the key to avoiding stagnation.
If you’re not moving forward then you’re not going anywhere. You got to keep challenging yourself and keep making new routines. Find out what part of the merry-go-round is no longer exciting you in life. If it bores you or brings you down in anyway then that’s a sure sign to step off that part of the merry-go-round cycle.
Keep shuffling your routine, change it up to avoid the ruts, and be sure your challenging yourself so you’re still moving forward. May you find the exits of your merry-go-rounds in life to become the change you want to be in your world.
