"The Only Way Out is Through"

"The only way out is through."

I stumbled upon this quote by Robert Frost and thought...

Damn it.  He's right.

I've always fancied myself a fairly self aware individual.  Whether that's accurate or not is definitely debatable.

But most times when something is amiss in my life, I'm highly attuned to what needs to be's just committing to the work... that's challenging.

And then because I'm stubborn and determined (when I decide it's time), I get amazingly tunnel visioned and throw every part of my blood, sinew, sweat and tears into the task at hand...many times to the detriment of others around me.

And then, like all seasons of life, it's time for change and I'm pissed.

Because I've gotten really good at where I'm at and also really comfortable again.

I hate even documenting it...but I think I'm at that point again. 

It's time for change.  It's time to mix things up.  And to keep pushing myself through.  Four months left until the end of my year of change.  What do I need to do?  Am I capable and willing to do the work?  How can I keep pushing myself?  Where do I need to strip the fat?  What's next?

The only way out is through.  Here I go.
