Now, do I need a big trip to transform my doldrums? No. I could have gone to a gallery, a museum, a park, spent time with people I don't know well, learn a new craft, tried a new restaurant, driven down an unfamiliar road, etc. Anything out of my norm would have kicked me in the pants enough to revamp my passion (but I did just have this big trip and thought it would be a good topic for conversation).
So, I ask, "do YOU find YOURSELF getting stale?"
What can you do to mix it up a little?
