Rut Free Relationships Rule!

Keeping love alive and staying out of a rut…important topic concerning love for others or yourself?

Both, of course.

When you’re in a relationship with someone else and you do the same-old, same-old all the time, eventually it grows stale.  How interesting is that?  How interesting are YOU? (Or, to be fair, how interesting is the OTHER person?)  As the old saying goes, if you rest, you rust.  It’s applicable to all of your relationships.  You have to keep growing to keep going.  Mix it up; dump your rut.  Have fun!

So how best to do that?

We’ll look at our relationship with ourselves, here, but any of this advice could easily be extrapolated to apply to a relationship with someone else.  It’s just so very important that you focus on your relationship with yourself because, as women, we so very rarely put ourselves first.

If you take stock of your life and see that you’re in a rut, it’s time to shake it up!  Challenge the boundaries of your comfort zone in a non-threatening way for best results in terms of living your WHY and achieving your S.M.A.A.R.T. goals.

In the meantime, be open to at least trying something you’ve always done, but…differently.  You’re taking a baby step toward getting out of the rut that’s your life.  Start by mixing up the soil that the green little shoot that you are is planted in; the changes you make in this vein can be small and simple changes, but still meaningful ones. For example, change up your breakfast time, your radio station, your gym routine, what you do during your lunch hour (maybe you take up walking instead of sitting around after you’re done eating, for example).

Just don’t sweat these small, simple changes you’re making.  They’re experimental.  If they work out, great.  If they don’t, oh well…next!  But by gently agitating the soil of your life, you might find that you’ve stimulated some interest in something new, or something old done in a new way or shown in a new light.

See, breaking up the monotony of life is a good thing!

And just like a plant needs fertilizer to grow, your soul needs some nourishment, too.  Is that religious or spiritual nourishment?  Have you been getting enough?  Should you mix that up, too?  (Join a bible study or a spiritual group online, etc.).

Are you an atheist?  Ok.  Could you nourish your soul by enjoying something otherwise new and different that’s just for your benefit–for example, calling a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while, going to a yoga class or, if that’s boring, a hardcore workout class with weights?  What can you do that’s good for you and ONLY you?

What kind of sunlight can you shine on the proverbial plant that is you so that it can grow?  Meaning, what kind of positivity are you trying to inject into your life, so that you’re not stuck in the darkness somewhere?  Is that enjoying comedy more?  Bringing funny people into your life and/or focusing on relationships with more positive people more than ever before?  Mix it up, change it up–this applies to the thoughts you’re experiencing, too.  A change here would probably do you a load of good!

What can you do that would bring you more fun and fulfillment?  What’s something you’ve always wanted to try but never got around to? It’s time to put down the mobile device and go DO that! Is it ballet class?  Rockstar camp?  Pottery class?  Woodworking?  Motocycles?  Tai Chi?  Tae Kwan Do?

No matter what end of the spectrum you’re at, there’s probably something you always wanted to do, and if you think about it, there’s probably some trial offer, free or “freemium” version, or some coupon/Groupon/whatever that will allow you to DO what it is you want to do for free or on the cheap.  Why not?  Just do it and see where that experience takes you.

More likely than not, it’ll take you out of the rut you’re in.  Gently agitated soil leads to great new green growth on plants…and gently mixing it up (or going full-throttle, if that’s your thing) can lead to great new green growth on YOU and your heart, mind and soul.

Grow, baby, grow!  Love yourself, love your life and may that love grow, always!
