It has basically thrown me into a Break-up Bootcamp series, outlining my process.

As a person who thrives when they have a routine, I tend to have trouble taking a step back to fully acknowledge when I am stuck in a rut or not challenging myself or not making time to do the things that bring me joy. Falling into a rut is something I have talked about on my blog before.
