Feeling Stuck?

For so long feeling stuck was MY LIFE. Everyday for years just doing the same thing, accepting my life as it was and allowing my circumstances and past circumstances to dictate who I would become, who I am. I wasn't good enough to be more or do more because I din't grow up a certain way. I fell for the limiting beliefs I had been taught. Instead of reaching for the stars, I was stuck, I was miserable being average. From the time I was in middle school, I could feel the yearning to do big things. To become more than what I was seeing around me, but I didn't know how to make those dreams come true. I eventually  went to college, worked a 9-5, got married, had kids, cared for my husband, cared for my kids, did for everyone, but never took the time to ask myself what I really wanted. Was this really the life I planned out and wanted or did I just allow my life to happen . Sad to say, I took no control of my life and I didn't take care of me. It wasn't until I was in my 30's that I gradually started to awaken, to realize that I was slowly killing my soul if allowed things to continue as they were. I made the decision one day to take control. To ask myself what I wanted and to act upon those things. Not just to dream, but to really act. To make my dreams come true. I could make my life great or I could make it miserable. I have the power. Too many times in life we blame others for our actions and our failures, we don't take responsibility. Others can only treat us how we allow them to. I am still on my journey to making my life great. I take actions everyday to take care of me and nourish my soul. Here are some of the things you can do to become unstuck:

  • Make a list of goals and create a list of necessary steps to complete those goals
  • Use that list to do  at least 3 things each day that will move you closer to your goals
  • Do something each day that nourishes your soul, whether that be reading, listening to an inspirational podcast or sermon, meditating, spa service. Whatever feels good for you. 
  • Get rid of limiting beliefs. You don't have to stay stuck, you don't have to be average. You can do extraordinary things. You just have to change your mindset. Believe that you can do and be whatever you want. Your dreams are possible!
