My darling dear sweet friend, I’m sorry to hear that you are feeling stuck right now. I know this feeling all too well and felt a smidgen of it last week after I returned from my visit to New York City, hence my most recent post. Feeling stuck is the worst feeling ever. You can literally count the seconds as your life ticks away and you muck about in your ennui. It’s frustrating and uninspiring. Please remember that you’re never as stuck as you think you are. You are constantly reinventing yourself and that is your great strength. So look at this time as a hiccup in your patterns of reinvention. Think deeply about the person you wish to be and when you’ve reached a conclusion, go forward and reach it.
I just got back from a little walk around my neighborhood. I love walking at night and the stillness that can be achieved there. Since you currently have built in babysitters, I would recommend that you walk often and a lot by yourself. Discover new places that you’ve never noticed before, take a notebook and pen and write down the things you see and how they make you feel.
Also, practice gratitude frequently. I learned this from my good friend Siri Peterson Cavanna. When I’m feeling more stuck than ever, I try and remember with every waking morning to give myself time for gratitude. I allow myself to wake slowly, move into child’s pose and slowly thank the universe for the abundance that it has given me on this great path of life. I ask it to remind me of whatever mission I was put here for and I try to practice that mindfulness through out the day.
And if you really want a cheap shot, watch the Republican Debate which aired last week on CNN. You might feel screwed but you’ll never be as screwed as America will be if any of those people are elected as commander-in-chief! Let’s have a Skype date tomorrow! I should be around! xoxo
