I don't know about you, but I am too comfortable in routine. I joke that every day in my life is like the movie "Groundhog Day", sometimes if feels like life is stuck on repeat. Breakfast, Work, Gym, Dinner, Homework Time, Bath Time, Bed Time, Repeat.
And when something gets in the way of that routine, I admit I do not respond well. Over the weekend I was in a hurry to get my kids out the door, but my 5 year old daughter, Emily didn't care. She was coloring. She doesn't just color things pink or purple, she colors them "rainbow". That's a primary color to her. I love that.
I stopped hurrying and let her finish her "rainbow" dress on the princess picture of the day. As I watched her I thought, "why not color my life rainbow." Instead of using the same color all the time of black and brown. Try indigo and violet. Take a different route to work. Try new things. Learn something new.
Get unstuck. Wake up. We get so stuck in our routine, our closed little world of work and church, and closet full of beige sweaters and black flats. We're so busy trying to fill some kind of role, we're dying inside from boredom. I lived that life of trying to be the perfect wife and stay at home mom. I know. Mine imploded, and then came the rainbow.
I don't know about you, but I want less beige, and more rainbow. I'll be going through my closet tonight.
Tell me what new thing you want to do to get unstuck...
