I’m in a bit of a rut.
I’ve been back to work for four months since my maternity leave and I feel like I’ve fallen into a too-comfortable routine of the same old, same old. Don’t get me wrong, I like my life, but I’ve been thinking it’s time for something new. Something more. A bunch of something mores.
I have this idea to walk a little on the edge, to do things I wouldn’t normally do. I’d like to try things I haven’t tried and write about the experiences here. I’ll pick one new thing to experience each week for 52 weeks. Some things will be relatively small. I hope others will be incredibly big. So far, I have a list of 26 things that I’d like to accomplish to stretch the way I live my life. I bet my imagination, once further activated, will easily be able to come up with 26 more.
I must say this venture excites me a lot and scares me a little bit too. A few of the things on my list are downright frightening to consider actually doing – to me at least, right now. Other things will more gently nudge me out of the rut that I say I’ve fallen into. And will I be able to stick with it? I’ll give it my best shot. All told, I just may not be the same person I am today when I come out of this little experiment on the other side.
“A year of new” begins this week. Come join me for this ride!
