Everyone comes across periods of life when they get in a rut, but it’s what you allow happen to that rut that determines whether or not you live the life that you are meant to live. Writer Ellen Glasgow said, “The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions.” Staying too long in a rut will inevitably bury you, being in depression, stagnancy or your ability to grow into your tomorrows.
In life we are the carriers of our own shovels. Our ruts are only as deep as we allow ourselves to dig. If you feel stuck in anything right now and the dimensions of your rut are getting deeper, then stop digging. Accept responsibility for the shoveling that you have already done, decide how you want the dimensions of your rut to change, and then take action for that change to happen.
