Snug as a bug in a rug

When metaphorically are we truly free physically, emotionally and spiritually ? When we have zero debt? When we answer to no one but ourselves? When we achieve equilibrium? When we truly love selflessly? It’s an individual preference might be one answer. And when do we take a risk beyond our four walls? When we face danger? When we fall in love? When we are bored? I’m stuck in a proverbial rut right now. I’ve been stuck for a good while now. Not moving forward not moving backward just running in place could describe my emotions right now.

I communicate with others for a living. I think I do a decent job of that. Of course there’s always room for improvement in anything, but I take great pride in helping others. In part it makes me feel good and in part I can empathize how others feel about certain topics. But a rut is a quagmire of sorts. Like quicksand the more you try to pull yourself out the more you get sucked in. So take a chance one might advise.

Taking a step out of ones comfort zone could be trying a new type of food or taking up a sport like fencing 🤺 or hang gliding ( one I’ve tried and the other I would like to try). Going out of ones comfort zone can be quite freeing but also it makes one vulnerable to outside forces. Forces that swallow up self confidence and self control if they become too greedy. Forces that can strip away self loathing and lead to new healthier habits and ways of viewing the world. The sky has always been a favorite view of mine. The sky is endless possibilities and clouds of chances to cast away doubt and insecurity. Tomorrow is today yesterday…

Stay safe stay well ❤️❤️❤️

  1. Beautifuly well written!
    According to me you need to breath out and take: black chocolate (L-tryptophan , marine magnesium) with fruits , vegetables full of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), at least Rhodiola Russian roots extract (Sedum roseum)…

    1. Ahh thank you. I was worried it would come across as woe as me which it wasn’t supposed to.
      I’ll look into the black chocolate too
      Clearly my body is trying to tell me something as my low grade headache yesterday morning erupted into full blown medicine taking by dinner time

  2. Are you able to take a trip anywhere, a weekend break? A change of scene might be a tonic. I would love to try hand-gliding too, it must be so exhilarating – although someone I knew tried it and broke both her legs, which tempered my enthusiasm a bit,

    1. No weekend break unfortunately. I do think I miss traveling and getting away and that is one bone nawing at me
      Yeah I fear with the hang gliding I would land in water and panic
      Oh goodness about that lady breaking her legs umm that would temper my enthusiasm too
