I have this channel and I give these suggestions. I have to tell you, they come from a place—my own life. It comes from my own recovery.
I recently had a day, where I felt really stuck. I don’t do stuck. I just don’t. I don’t like to wallow. I don’t like not feeling like I’m moving forward. The truth is that I’m just as human as you are. I have those days where I have no tools or at least it feels like that.
What do I do? Well, I usually take a nap for a little bit and try to center my thoughts. I do Reiki on myself. I do some energy work and try to get some clarity about really what is going on. I talk to somebody I love and I trust and I value. I’ll actually just say, “I’m stuck. I’m stuck in this way and I don’t have any insights and I don’t have any tools and I don’t know what to do and I’m frustrated.”
I’m sharing this with you because as much as I have insight, I need you to know that there are certainly moments when I don’t. There are certainly moments that I feel completely clueless and lost. The good news is that whenever I do share with someone, I notice I feel a little bit better. Then, maybe I’ll share with somebody else and I’ll feel even better.
The idea is that the people I do share with are not people who indulge the victimhood. They’re people who provide a perspective for me through repeating what I’m saying, giving me clarity, and validating that I can begin to look at my situation differently.
That’s what this is all about, right? It’s all about finding a new way to look at life when it’s challenging you or making you feel stuck. I hope that this gives you some insight and some inspiration. Remember, even though you may be stuck right now, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to be stuck forever—just for the moment.
