How do you take that next step towards living and adventure when life is full of inertia to stay silent and still? –@kaisdavis
On any given day the general tendency is to just do your normal routine. The “normal routine” is a jealous beast. It doesn’t want us to do anything new. So it basically has us in the routines that keep us trapped into continuing its follies: We eat heavy, greasy food, which weighs us down and keeps us sluggish. We drink – which further removes the methods by which we can escape out of the box we’ve carved out for ourselves. We go to our shit jobs so we can pay back our student loan debts. We hang out with our friends. I would like to hang out more with friends. But it’s hard to do that and plan for the exciting future which we can rightfully claim to be ours.
We live our normal routines because we have been told forever that’s how we become happy. We become afraid to break out of the routine. To risk the unhappiness that might occur.
The key ultimately is to, first, figure out how to get rid of the inertia and then the real living will come.
I have had periods of real inertia. Where all I could do was sit around and be depressed. The only way I’ve been able to get out of it is to make sure every day I’m checking the box on the following items:
– am I improving physically?
– am I improving emotionally – getting rid of negative influences, surrounding myself with positive influences?
– am I improving mentally – writing down lists of ideas every day?
– am I improving spiritually – being grateful for what I have, focusing on the present moment, surrendering to whatever higher power or subconscious power, that I might believe in?
