Life lately has been a lot of the daily grind on repeat. Wake up, get ready for the day, daycare drop off, work, return home for the whole dinner/bath time/play cars, chase the toddler around the house because he finds it hilarious and you’ll do anything for that laugh routine, then go to bed and do it all over again the next day. And some days that feels perfect and I find myself so emotional and grateful that this is my life, like when the toddler who loves to be chased decides to run upstairs and insists that you lay down, close your eyes and go “night night” while he runs from you, only to have your husband wander up to see what you guys are up to and it ends with the whole family snuggling up together and laughing. That’s the good stuff right there.
But then there are the days where that feeling of restlessness creeps in and leaves me feeling like it’s time for some change! And maybe that’s because it’s nearing the end of winter and we’re all craving the opportunities to get outside, realizing today that it’s been over 2 months since we’ve left the city we live in and it’s surrounding suburbs, or maybe just because I gave in today and wore my old jeans I’ve held onto that are a size bigger than what I’ve been wearing. You know the ones – we all have them, right? And if you don’t, please don’t tell me. 😉
So here we go, I’ll be on a quest to figure out how the heck to snap out of it. Maybe I need more time to myself, to start working out again, maybe a wardrobe refresh like Anne? 🙂 Or maybe I just need to get out of my own head a bit! How about you? Any tried and true tricks you have when you just need to get yourself out of a rut?
