It's the loss of spirit that is the toughest. When we get too comfortable in what we believe is a safe space to exist with that reliable paycheck, health benefits, vacation days and regular schedule, all without feeling fulfilled, our spirit slowly dies away and we become apathetic. We rarely notice the transition towards 'ho-humness" but if you start to look around at friends and family, your colleagues, your bank teller, your server - you might see it. And what we see in others is often a reflection of ourselves.
So I guess the question that begs to be asked is whether I have the you-know-whats to face the fear. To actually take a good look at my life, examine where I've become 'ho-hum' and make the change to bring back my spirit. Can I? Do I have the commitment to do it? Do I have the desire to even take the first step to make this huge change? Cause let me tell you I am WAY DEEP into the 'ho-humness.'
I once read a quote saying something about not surrounding yourself with others who have the same problems as you, that won't help. You need to surround yourself with other who have the solutions. So let's go find some solutions damnit!!!!!!
