Break out of prison

Share This

“Before you can break out of prison, you must realize you are locked up.”

This is a sentiment that is popular in the substance abuse and recovery world. But it has broad applications for many of us. We often fall into a rut with our life and work and don’t have the clear vision to realize that we are in a self-imposed prison where the jailer is gone and the door is open. Sometimes taking a break such as going on a vacation, taking a one-day sabbatical, or simply spending a little quiet alone time with our thoughts can help to see the true picture and realize that time is slipping away and action is needed. Journaling can sometimes help, too, as can talking to a trusted friend, family member or even a professional. Stop holding yourself hostage and negotiate a release.

Live your life to the fullest… before the game is over.
