In a rut?

“…we all have the guts to leave the ruts when we are motivated.”  Linda McNamar

Whoa!  I took a literal flying leap out of my rut by ziplining in Costa Rica last week.  What an experience in trust—trusting the support people and equipment, trusting my body.  Not only was the zipping an exhilarating and terrifying experience, but the climb up the mountain and launch stations took stamina I didn’t know I had. And I chose to ask for help, also not a routine practice in my rut. 

My main motivation was that I don’t know if I’ll ever have this opportunity again, and I’d kick myself if I didn’t do it.  Another motivation was conquering fear—thousands have done it, no reason I can’t.  It’s another opportunity to say, “Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.”  

Life is great!  Peek outside your rut and find an adventure!
