When You’re Feeling Stuck


“I’m not who I was one year ago and maybe, just this once, change is good.”

-E. Grin

Soooo I haven’t published anything in a minute. Mostly because I don’t exactly know what I want to write about. I’m starting to realize that’s kind of the whole point in all of this. I don’t know what I’m doing half the time, because I’m still learning.

With any project, it’s important to understand what your objectives and goals are from the start. But since we are continually growing, our goals and priorities are also shifting in new directions. Rather than chasing old ideas and passions, maybe we should welcome new ones in.

Sometimes you gotta step outside your mind, and ask yourself: Why and what are you doing?

Doing so can really put things into perspective. Everything takes time, and growth is an infinite process that requires you to take unexpected leaps. Even if that means doing things that make you uncomfortable. As scary as it may seem, change is a good thing. Don’t run from it or avoid it, instead, try embracing it. Let the unknown surprise you.

We don’t have to know every single detail right now, we just need to listen to our gut, be mindful, and focus on how you can improve your life each day.

Things fall into place when you live with simplicity. Let things be, and don’t stress yourself out when you feel like things aren’t going. Because things are forever moving, even if you do not see or feel the momentum.

Rather than obsessing over things that are missing in your life, focus on what you do have. The people that are present, the experiences you are creating, and the knowledge you acquire. If you feel like you could be doing more, then you probably should be.

Step outside that familiar place you’ve glued yourself in, and walk through new doors. Seek more opportunity. There is always more. Don’t just write down your goals, follow through with them! The small, big, and even far-fetched ones.

Be more mindful of yourself. Address your fears, personal struggles, emotions, and try to understand the reason behind them. Stop running. Start living.

At first, my blog was nothing more than a digital diary for my thoughts and feelings. But that has changed, as have I.

I don’t want this to be my blog. I want it to be yours too. I want it to belong to anyone who stumbles across it. I want to offer something valuable for my readers. Whether that is sharing tips, advice, or just being here for anyone who wants to talk.

If there’s even the slightest chance of my words improving someone else’s day, even for just a minute–I’d love that.
