COURAGE MONTH: DAY 7: “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.”― Robin S. Sharma

So many people live like they are in “Groundhog Day.” Over and over, routine and rut. Hard to tell the difference.

While many of us long for a sense of stability, that is not the same thing. I have several things about my life that are consistent. I eat healthy foods most of the time. My numbers on my blood work are insanely great. I do not feel that my consistency with my diet is in a rut.

Nothing about my life is ever the same, one day to the next. But I consistently do things in the course of my days that create great outcomes for me.

We have to move outside the box to really enjoy and live life. No doubt about that, new people, new places to go, new foods, exploring all the possible worlds we can.

And learning, so much to know! I am a curious student of life. Things that interest me draw me into new ways of seeing things. I love to learn! I love to have new experiences and meet new people. Not in great groups, but to spend time with a person getting to know them is my greatest joy. I want to know unusual things about them, not just the bio that we give to a new person.

Life is rich for me because I dive deeply into all of it. The seemingly bad brings me greater learning than the seemingly good. I no longer label things that way because I have learned that I am not a skilled judge of what is good or bad. Excellent lesson! Today I will keep my eyes open for all possible opportunities to have adventures and to learn! See ya!

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
