I've felt stuck for awhile now. Stagnant. Like I've lost my purpose.
Yes, even I lose my way sometimes. And I've been struggling to find my way back. Or find my new way.
But the truth is that I don't think I need to find my way back. I'm pretty sure I know what needs to happen. But I'm scared. I'm scared of moving out of my comfort zone. I'm scared of what I'll find. Or won't find.
This is hard for me to admit, because I'm a big believer in stepping outside of your comfort zone. I coach people to do this every day. And here I am, having an issue doing it myself.
Pot, meet kettle.
I've wanted to make big changes in my life for months now. I keep talking about it. I keep saying I'm going to do it when... [fill in the blank with whatever excuse you want here]. And that's all they are...excuses.
I'm afraid of making this big change because it's been such a staple in my life the past several years. What will happen when I pull the trigger? Will it be everything I hoped for? Will I fail? Or will it open up doors for me in a way that I didn't think it ever would?
I've been here once before....when I left my government job. I was TERRIFIED of what would happen. How could I possibly be successful leaving my cushy government job? But somehow, it all worked out. And I'd like to say it all worked out for the best. I'm certainly happier now than when I was a government employee.
So again...why am I scared now? I'm about 99% positive that it will result in the same thing. Doors will open for me. My stress level will go down. I won't feel this massive stagnation I have now. I'm not moving forward because I'm stuck. I'm stuck in a place I thought I needed and would always need.
So here I am...stuck, stagnant. In this "safe" place...or what I deem safe. And wondering when I'll find my bravery...to pull the trigger. To make the hard decision.
And yes, I know I'm being vague. I'm not ready to admit what it is I need to do. Believe me, you'll know when I make it.
But for now, I need your help. Yes, I need help too! Tell me how you break out of your funks...out of your stagnation...out of being stuck. Or do I need to man up and just do it? That's where I am, y'all.
Okay - give me your suggestions! I'd love to hear them!
Have a beautiful week! And thanks for always being there!
With love and wellness,
