Have you ever had those days where you’re just like “How the hell did I get here?” I had one of those days today. I got so incredibly frustrated with almost everything. The house was a mess, the husband was mad, the dog needed things, and I just wasn’t enough.
After I got all my frustration out and settled down a bit, I was able to assess where I really was. To be honest, I didn’t like what I saw. I was angry, whiny, selfish, and just plain yucky. I’ve come to a point in my life where I need to make some big changes so I don’t stay stuck in the spot I’m in. Because the worst spot in life to be is stuck.
Here are some ways I’m going to try to get unstuck:
Will my willpower. I’m going to will it to come alive! When I’m stuck, I feel flat and without power to move. I’m going to try to get back into motion by willing my willpower to move. I’m going to do this by putting small goals into place, like consistently using my Weight Watchers app and consistently going to the gym after work. Will someone PLEASE help me keep accountable?!
Small goals. By completing smaller goals I’m hoping to get some motivation to keep moving forward. When I feel stuck, I feel like I’m in a hole and can’t move. Though sometimes I enjoy my dark hole, because it’s safe, it’s not where I want to stay now.
Just say no. There are some things that I struggle with on a daily basis, things that I’m not very proud of. The best way to get unstuck is to start saying no to certain things. When I’m matched up with a decision to make, I just need to put my foot down and say “NO!”. Making those small changes will add up, I know it.
One step at a time. If I start getting too far ahead of myself I start losing sight of what I need to get done in the present. The present is what matters when trying to get unstuck. One small step at a time will help me stay focused on what I can do at the time to get moving forward and stay moving forward.
Stay humble. One thing my husband said today that really hit home was to try to be more humble. I am fiercely independent and often times feel that I can handle anything all on my own. That’s just not true. Everyone in my life is there for a reason and I need to be humble enough to ask for help or say “I can’t do it.” I think that will help me not feel so alone in all of this.
I hope someone can relate to these suggestions. I also hope someone can share their suggestions with me for how they get unstuck. Stay well!
