Do you ever feel like you're just floating through life, not really present, but not completely oblivious either? That's where I've been the past couple of months, going with the flow, putting little effort into a lot of things. It's easy when we're exhausted and just want to get through the next week or make it to the coming deadline. I think we all have that point where it's healthy to let life do it's thing for a bit. However, it's when that becomes the norm that it's a problem, when days turn into weeks that turn into months. Without intentionality or purpose we are just living on the surface level of life. That, I believe, is one of the worst ways we can live. Not caring, seeing how things play out with little effort, and just letting the day run us can quickly turn into a life of regret and disappointment.
We are made to live intentionally. We are made to live with purpose, to pursue our passions, and have this drive to make the world a better place. Now that all may sound like a lot and it is, but ultimately one day at a time, one step at a time is how we get to that point. When we let our days go and fall into the trap of not caring, we are doing ourselves and the world a disservice. Like I said before, it's not bad to let go and relax for a few days and reset, but the dangers are in the continuation of this lifestyle. Don't get sucked into going through the routine and half-assing all that you do. If you're in this rut, here are a few ways to help you out. 1.) Pick one or two main projects or tasks you want to get done for that day. 2.) Plan your week out and decide what your day holds. 3.) Give yourself some downtime. It's good and it's healthy and when you choose to take care of yourself, you're going to be excited to wake up start getting things done and pursuing your passions. Remember, just take it one step at a time.
