Have you ever felt as if you are stuck and not moving forward? I had the feeling that I was stuck and it shook me to the core. I spent the summer really trying to get into a “chill happy zone,” and it was a relaxing summer– until summer was over and sh*t hit the fan again. For a while, I felt as if I were un-gluing myself and moving forward. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and was experiencing seriously rewarding happy moments even amongst really dark times.
But here I am, feeling like all those steps forward just led me about 50 million steps back.
I decided that essentially, something has to give before I do.
Sometimes you have to take a huge risk to get big rewards. Without that risk– you (I) will never know what could be. Remaining stagnant is just not acceptable, especially if it you are stuck in a place that you just can’t stand.
I decided that I will take a massive leap and make a big change if I feel that things are still stuck by the time the school year ends.
If this is you– feeling like you’re a hamster stuck running on your wheel– consider making a change.
In the following 3 cases, I think it is worth making a huge change and taking a risk in order to be happy:
If you can’t stand showing up to the place and feel no reward from your role– it’s time to take a chance. Maybe you switch jobs. Maybe you even switch careers. Maybe you go back to school.
Feeling doomed or stuck in a bad marriage/relationship?
Maybe it’s time to move. Maybe it’s time for a divorce. Maybe it is time to shell out dollars for an elite dating service. Maybe it’s time to chop your hair or get some minor touch ups.
Would marriage counseling or family counseling help? Do you need an executive function coach for your oldest? Do you all need to move?
It may be time to regroup for everyone’s sanity.
Consider This …
Before you break, you have to bend. It may be time to make a drastic change. Before doing so, give yourself a timeline like I did.
- a time period to think your choice through
- optional plans B and C, in case you have too many hesitations
- one trusted individual to ponder and plan your decision with
- research needed ahead of time to be successful
