3 ways out when Feeling Stuck – part 1

Have you ever felt very thankful for the safety, stability, and love you’re experiencing?

…really grateful for the presence and genuine affection of the amazing people in your life?

…while at the same time hiding from the world in embarrassment like Simba from The Lion King eating worms which taste like chicken instead of hunting gazelles or growling amidst the Lion Pride?

While going through a rough patch in life, still being able to feel gratitude for the good things can seem like a miracle. Investing only in miracles or external motivation, though, won’t cut it when you don’t have dead people’s goals.

If you’re feeling stuck, know that you’re not alone. Don’t let shame, avoidance, or any kind of bias isolate you further. Many people feel this way right now and there is always help near. All you have to do is ask.

3 ways to ask

1 – Reflect | Ask yourself

What exists already within you and your environment that works?

     Name 3-5 cool things, strengths, skills, resources, opportunities within reach.

Which is the best way for you to learn, unlearn and relearn? 

Where do you want to be in 10-15 years from now? Who else is there with you?

     Imagine or write in detail as if you’re already there.

Eating | Moving | Sleeping

     On a scale of 1-10, how well are you doing with each?

How do you express your needs?

     List 3-5 ways.

This is not an exhaustive list of possibilities or “either/or” suggestions. You can focus on one or more of the above and – why not? – invite a trusted sparring partner in your reflection process.

Any positive inquiry which provides a new and innovative way for you to be and do; a fresh look at your situation; a chance to move away from navel-gazing and towards self-awareness is welcome and a gift.

The path is personal development.
Any action on the path is good.
