Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a rut? There are things you want for your life, and you know how to make them happen, but you just can’t seem to move forward? I feel like this a lot. At my Monday class, our teacher often says, “small steps take you in a new direction.” Isn’t that great? I get stuck in an all or nothing mentality and it usually leaves me in the “nothing” camp. I am adjusting to the fact that in this season of life, not much of me can be “all in.”
I’ve stopped going to the gym because the classes I love just aren’t at times I can go. A week ago I was convicted that I need to let go of my ideals and rigid plans and open my mind to new possibilities. If I can’t go to the gym classes that I love, perhaps I can go and do something different. Last night I went to the gym and got on the elliptical machine for 30 minutes. That’s all. And you know what I kept thinking, “small steps take you in a new direction.” It’s wasn’t a hard core 1 hour workout, but it was what I can do now and although it was small, it moved me out of my rut! Do you need to take a small step today?
