WHEN DID THE RUT BECOME THE HORIZON?

One day the edge of our rut became the horizon.

Not all at once, or else we would have noticed.

Once, we saw all the options, the openings, the possibilities

Then,

we settled,

we compromised,

and the rut got deeper.

Our vision grew smaller.

The possibilities fewer.

We accepted what others said:

Too old, too young, don’t have the right letters after your name.

Too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too ugly, too whatever

We got comfortable there.

The rut grew deeper.

 

The rut is a lie we tell ourselves.

We begin by stopping and asking how we got this deep.

 

Then, DECIDE to get out of the rut.

Do whatever it takes.

Get a trainer, a coach, a partner

Get a therapist or become all of these for yourself

The time for your expanded vision is now.

The infinite horizon exists just beyond the edge of your rut.
