Have you ever felt like you are in a rut?
You know how it goes: same old grind, nothing new to blog about, lack of inspiration.
Hit the wall.
Like a marathoner hitting a wall at 20 miles, I crashed into my wall a little over 100 posts.
I’ve been feeling a need for a new way of thinking and a refreshed perspective.
And then it happened.
In what seemed to be perfect timing, I was able to chat about this very thing with my buddy Michael.
You know what he said? “Get away. Don’t tell anybody; just take a break.”
Then I realized my wife had been hinting at the same thing.
I didn’t post on Wednesday or Friday. And coincidentally, I had vacation days scheduled off from work Thursday and Friday.
I was able to use that time to simply be refreshed — through rest, family, and some quiet thinking.
The next step.
When blogging becomes a chore or simply part of my “to-do” list, I want to take an honest gut-check and re-evaluate my motivations behind it all.
So, I spent some time doing that.
While not as dramatic like a phoenix out of the ashes, I am re-emerging from a quiet vacation feeling refreshed!
