Get Out of Your Rut – S1E11

For the past month, I have been in a rut.  From the outside, people would not really know it since I keep smiling and trying to move forward.  Some things converged together and hit me like a tidal wave.  It came to a head on the week of Memorial Day, and I have been getting out of my rut since.  In this podcast, I talk about what I am doing and what I have learned along the way, and maybe this will help you get out of your rut and moving forward.

This is a difficult podcast for me to post, and I struggled with putting it out there for a couple reasons:

  • I had some technical issues with my laptop that delayed my posting of this podcast
  • This is a very personal podcast, and I hesitated posting it

Believe it or not, I don’t like talking about what goes on in my head. I keep things pretty close.  My friend Drew Sample told me that I needed to share it because there lessons to be learned from this experience.  I agreed and decided that it was important to me to share this with you.  Take from it what you will, and hopefully you will get out of your rut too.

Let’s get the funk out! Life is too short and too beautiful to be down in the dumps!

Thank you, special people in my life, for lending a helping hand with encouragement and kind words.  Really, you guys are the best, and I appreciate you.  For those of you in a rut and struggling, find a good, kind person and lean on them.  It really does help to look at your problems and issues through a different prism and perspective.
