I'm stuck in a rut.
I think I've been in one for quite a while now.

and of course
3. a usual or fixed practice; a monotonous routine
I'm stuck in a place where I'm letting my job/stress/frustration/worry/imperfection control me. It's a monotonous routine of head versus heart. Believing in the Truth and knowing to put my faith in my Father...but believing the world and putting my faith there instead.
Lately I've let myself become unhappy.
I'm frustrated by [the things I can't control about] my job
I'm overly self-conscious about my body/wardrobe/hair because I don't look like ____ blogger.
I'm upset by the amount of time my husband and I don't get to spend together and how irregular our life looks right now.
I'm stressed about my lack of balance and my attempts to get things lined up again.
I've dug myself quite a hole, haven't I?
How did I get so selfish?
How did I let my eyes turn only to myself?
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
So this is where I am, but I'm digging myself out.
Have you been here? How did you go about digging? Where did you begin?
"As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands." Psalm 119:143
