You know when life feels like it’s just on repeat? Nothing is new or interesting and the same thoughts going in and out your mind and you’re doing everything on your to-do list but the list repeatedly stays the same. Well, at least for me that has been the feeling lately. I know what I want to achieve but not sure what exactly I’m going to do or what exactly my next move is. I don’t have a map planned out of what to do to reach all the places I want to be. I’ve been stuck on that for some time now, it’s worrisome to not know if each decision is the right one or if each step you take is closer or further from where you’re trying to go. I have also come to the conclusion that that’s okay and that each wrong decision is one step closer to the right one and that I will get to where I’m trying to go as long as I don’t stop looking for what that is.
When you start to feel scared or stuck it’s so easy to just stop, because at least if you stop you’re not doing anything wrong, right? If you give up at least you didn’t fail, right? Wrong, that doesn’t make any sense. You can’t give up, you can’t stop, you can’t try to find the easy way out. I mean you can, but that isn’t going to be rewarding at all. Whatever it is you have going on in your life, whether you’re going through something, you’re upset about something, you’re trying to accomplish something for yourself, or whatever it may be, you’re not going to get there or any closer to it by doing nothing.
There is a difference between being patient and being passive. Patience is understanding that you have work to do and progress to make and being willing to wait but to do what you can in the meantime. Understand that there are going to be things that get in your way and finding your way around that, understand that things are going to come up and you can handle them without forgetting what you’re working towards. Being passive is learning that things are going to take time and thinking that letting time walk all over you and pass you by is going to get you places. Stop being passive.
Not having it all figured out is not an excuse not to start, because once you start you will find your way. I have no idea what I’m doing, I just know that I can’t do nothing and by doing something I will figure it out. Life isn’t going to hand you everything on a platter and you’re capable of doing so much more than just doing whatever it is that falls into your lap.
Being scared and feeling stuck is going to happen, but it’s better than being comfortable, at least this way you’ll do something about it. And sure, a lot of things are probably going to fail, things are not going to always be easy but if you didn’t ever fail what would you ever learn? If you didn’t fail how would you know when something you did accomplish was fulfilling? When you feel stuck remember that it is just that, a feeling. Failing doesn’t make you a failure, but it will get you that much closer to your end goal. If that to-do list keeps staying the same time and time again and you continue to feel stuck, maybe it’s time to change the to-do list. You can’t continue to do the same things over and over again and expect a different result.
Next time you feel stuck or like you aren’t getting anywhere, don’t just take it and wait for that feeling to go away, do something, anything at all because as long as you are doing something you aren’t staying the same and there is something you can learn from it.
I love telling you all that things do get better (and they do) and that you can do anything (because you can) but you can’t expect things to get done by not putting any real work into it. If you can’t do it all in a day, do something, every day, you’ll have much more to show for it and you’ll feel much better about it I promise you.
