Rediscovering Yourself

I lose track of myself all the time and I don’t even know I’m doing it. Just one day I’ll snap back into place and realize I’ve been wasting life away.

I get into these ruts where all I do is nap after work. Where I stop putting time into my appearance. Ruts where I don’t do anything for myself anymore. And the worst part about it is that I’ve actually convinced myself that what I’m doing is good for me.

That maybe I just need a little rest, maybe I need to be alone, maybe I need to just be a lump for a day. And then one day turns into two and then that turns into a week. And before I know it I’ve lost myself.

While it’s true we all need days to relax and be a lump, it’s easy to fall into a pattern and stay there. Why should I push myself? Why should I get up? I’m tired.

But I’m making myself more tired by not pushing myself a little. Because now the tiniest of things will cause me stress. I need to rediscover myself and get back out of my comfort zone. Only then will I find the energy I need and find myself again.

So I’ve signed up for yoga. I’ve made an appointment to get my hair done. Lists are being made, priorities won’t be forgotten. It’s the little things that can get neglected, but those are the things that can make the biggest difference in your life.

  1. Good for you! Break that lazy cycle and go on an adventure, even if it takes you to a hair salon. Routine can be good, but in most cases, it’s not fulfilling. Our spirits need change to be happy.

  2. I do the same thing. Often I will look in the mirror and see another flaw on my face, thighs fatter with another blob of fat sticking out on the sides, skirts won’t fit, husband has no interest in me or I him, feeling of no self confidence. When I feel this way, I book a trip all on my own to rejuvenate myself. Utah is a wonderful place to hike, get some fresh air and meet new people while hiking. This is my saving grace. It makes my soul smile. 🙂

  3. I love the way you think. I try not to let myself fall into those ruts either. For me, I just call it winter. That’s when I am tired and sleepy all the time. Before moving to America, I often wondered how people managed to be productive during the colder months. Now that I live there, I find that the answer is you try very very hard 😆

  5. I’ve never related to a post more than this one. I always get into ruts like this and use the excuse that I’m tired and need to rest from being so “busy and productive” all the time… even though I’m actually not being productive by allowing myself to stay in a rut. I was actually in a rut today, but reading this motivated me to get my ass off the couch and get things done, so thank you lol.

  6. I really struggled to get into it the first time I tried… but I perceived this time and found it to be really beneficial at calming my mind too. These memberships/classes all add up! So choose something you love 😊

  7. I have this same issue, especially on the weekdays. It’s so hard to stay motivated once I get home from work. However, I also hate spending 4-5 days out of the week just working and doing nothing else. It’s all about starting some sort of routine. I need to find activities to do after work that don’t involve watching TV.
