I’m stuck right now. I can’t decide which direction to go in writing to you, my dear friend. Frustration is building. I have so many things to say and yet, I am frozen, like little Olaf in the Disney movie.
I recognize this “stuckness” like the back of my hand. It’s debilating. It freezes me so I don’t move forward until I recognize what is happening. Then… I take one step. Just one. I begin to see (become AWARE) I’m stuck and I get to choose. I can choose:
- Stay where I am. For me this means staying small and hiding.
- Move through the fear and frustration and do it anyway. I get clear on what I want to convey or do and focus on the bigger picture.
Maybe you feel stuck in an area of your own life. Does it feel like you’re wading through mud and not sure what is holding you back? Or, maybe you know what is holding you back. Something from the far away past that you struggle to forget yet it is always a monkey on your back. Do you ask yourself, “Is this really all there is to life?”
What would it feel like to send that monkey flying back home, and free from frustration? Can you even imagine how you would feel? Focused in the present perhaps? Excited for every moment to live fully? Maybe even a full-on screaming WOO HOO from the top of your lungs? [By the way, I’ve done that before!]
No matter what you are doing in your life right now—stay at home mom, waitress, esthetician, entrepreneur, corporate executive, retired– I want you to know IT’S PERFECT! You’re exactly where you need to be. Even if that’s in the feeling of stuck and frustrated! Use it to propel yourself to a bigger vision for your life–whatever that may be.
Just so you know—I get stuck too. And, I have developed tools to work through them so I don’t stay in that place for very long. Life is a journey and I’m here to share what I’ve learned with amazing people like you.
