Tuesday, June 24


When I was in high school and college, I lived a non-stop life. I was constantly doing something, involved in something, planning something. My schedule was insanely full, but I balanced and excelled at it like a pro (at least I think so!) My brain was constantly being stimulated by something new and I rarely felt bored. 

Recently though - and I think since joining the "real world" - I feel like I've been in a little rut. Not that I don't do fun things during the week, I do a lot of that, thanks to my job. But I feel like for the most part if I don't have something planned, my days are pretty monotonous. I go to work for 8+ hours, sometimes work out, come home, eat dinner, go to bed. On some days, that's all I want to do because I'm exhausted. But other days, I think I just do that because it's become the norm... except I don't want that to be the norm.

I think it's easy in our 20's to get stuck in a routine that doesn't really define who we are. I know that I'm not the kind of person who spends every night laying on the couch, but without those structured and defined activities I had in high school and college, it's easy to get in that groove. To break my routine, I'm going to make it a point to start doing something new/different during the week, whether it's baking or cooking a new recipe, doing a craft, reading a book, or exploring a new-to-me part of Nashville. I'm tired of feeling "bored" and I'm ready to make the change that only I myself can make. 

Do you all ever feel this way or is it just me? What do you do to get out of your routine?

Totally feel the same way! Whenever I feel this way I usually begin to plan a trip, but agree think there are some ways to recreate that kind of excitement and still be able to stay in town... just need to seek out the opportunities! Keep me posted on your new adventures, Rachel!

I can completely relate. Some days it’s nice to just relax, when other days I want to be out doing something! Keep us posted on your adventures!
