Winter arrived early for us. For over a week we’ve had snow, freezing fog and ice pellets. Then the temperature briefly went above 32. So the snow turned to slush, which allowed the car tires to make ruts. As evening came, the temperature dropped and the ruts froze. Once your tires are in a rut, it’s hard to change lanes or turn a corner.
Some people drive like they plan to stay in the rut forever. Others gun it and do an ice dance trying to get out of the rut.
Life is like that. Sometimes we get in a rut. It’s nice and safe in our rut, so we settle in and make the journey. Others rebel, doing all kinds of dancing … drugs, drinking, overeating.
There are safe ways to climb out of the rut. Let’s do that.
