Life is never completely smooth all the time. It’s not meant to be. There are times when we’re forced into change, causing discomfort and chaos. Ideally, we flow from the old, to some discomfort, and ultimately into the new with grace.
But what happens in between the old and the new is that, at times, we get stuck. We get stuck in a place of mourning the old and fearing the new. This temporary destination is almost always expected, but the forces of the universe don’t intend that we stay too long.
Sometimes we can’t help it. Getting stuck in between the old and the new can be more comfortable – more soothing — than braving the unknown. It’s easier to pitch a tent in this place than to take action towards the life we’re meant to be living. When we hang out in this place of fear long enough, becomes our new. It becomes comfortable.
If we can wake up, look around, and are able to bring to mind the choices that got us here, we’re way on our way to getting unstuck. Acknowledging the choices that led us to where we are is empowering. Even if the choices were not so great. Once we’re able to connect the dots from choices to how they manifested in our lives, we receive the validation that we do have a say… that what he does mater… what we say and think becomes real.
Getting unstuck is all about not feeling bad for ourselves. Usually, we’re quick to think that we need something to get unstuck: more money, a partner, more education, a new job. Once we have that, then we’ll be unstuck. Not true. Freedom is in the willingness to see our own power.
With that knowing, we’ll never feel the need to pity ourselves. We’ll never doubt our abilities.
We’ve each been given the power to choose, every day and every moment. Choice of thought. Choice of word. Choice of action. And in that strength, we become unstuck.
