If you are in a rut, get out.
Dig yourself out.
Go ahead, get sweaty.
And don't look for a shoulder to cry on. At least not right now.
You just need to go to the garage, get a shovel and start breaking up some ground.
Now that you are actively engaged and are done with the excuses you can ask for help.
Because the reason you are standing where you are right now could be because of the people you have been surrounding yourself with.
Remember, "Bad company corrupts good morals."
You are out of the rut.
Now you need a plan.
I'll give you a head start.
Remember those friends? The ones you had before that helped you get into that hole in the first place?
Ditch them completely. Have a last hurrah with them; let them know about your new direction in life and wish them the best. Now delete them from your cell phone, block their number and go about your day.
Next, start going to places where like-mind people gather. The kind of people that have a positive outlook on life, live with a smile, find enjoyment in their work and family. Look for people that have purpose.
Good, now start filling your mind with inspiring stuff. The kind of information that takes your mind and shakes it up. You need a new perspective on life and nothing -and I mean nothing- will give you a new one more than the people you spend your time with and the things you fill your brain with.
For those that think that this should have been first, it actually is. This is just a reminder that you should be praying through this whole process. The beginning. The middle. The end.
I know you are scared. You are human. This is a daunting task and there are a lot of unknowns. Plato said, "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."
My advice is do not be scared of the light.
Run to it.
You never get lost when you run to The Light.
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said,
"I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life."
Share on Facebook if you are in the light!
