Sometimes we find ourselves in crappy situations....in what feels like never-ending terrible situations. We question why we're in those situations. What we did to deserve being in such situations.
And many times, people get stuck in those situations. They can't figure out how to get themselves out of them. And they stay stuck. They play the "woe is me" game. The "look how hard I have it" game.
They don't know how to break free of those situations.
I was asked a lot during last summer how I managed to keep moving forward and get through everything I'd been through. The answer was simple...I didn't have a choice. And the only way to get through it all was to keep moving forward and to MOVE THROUGH it.
I could have wallowed and sat in my own self-pity...I could have cried, thrown a fit, and stayed in that place.
But for me, that wasn't even an option. The only thing I knew how to do was to keep moving forward. Because the only way out of anything is always through.
Without any forward progress or movement, I would've stayed in that same place. And I don't know about you, but I didn't want to stay there. I didn't like feeling sorry for myself.
Yes, I had my moments. I allowed myself to cry and wonder why, but I didn't allow myself to stay there. I knew I needed to continue putting one foot in front of the other and making forward progress.
The answer didn't come to me right away. And it certainly wasn't easy. But when you're in tough situations, the only way out of them is to go through them.
My advice to you... Don't get stuck there. Don't get stuck in those situations.
Do the hard things. Move forward through the muck. I can't promise it will be easy, but it will definitely be worth it. Because on the other side of THROUGH the crap is amazing.
Have an amazing week, and happy October! I can't even believe we are into October already. This year has 100% flown by!
With love and wellness,
