We all go through periods of being stagnant or getting too comfortable just existing. Remember that staying comfortable, however nice, isn’t the “woke” goal. It’s about evolving and becoming the best version of ourselves we can be, and that often requires getting out of predictably familiar scenarios and choices. We do that by living consciously, by paying attention to the lessons and triggers as they arise, and by healing them as we go. Sounds easy enough, right? But even with that as your #lifegoals, you will invariably encounter internal resistance from time to time around change itself. Here are some good ways to coach yourself through those times when you feel stuck in that proverbial rut.
Flag on the field: feeling stuck is a surefire sign that change is afoot
What a bore
Be willing to stand in the hallway
My fellow fearless travelers: it’s an exercise in futility to try to keep the status quo when the time has come for movement. So take stock, be bold, and trust in all the good on its way to you as a result of your courage. There’s a time to coast enjoying the view and a time to envision something new, even if it’s not fully in focus. Knowing the difference and tuning into that space between those two states is what creates a seamless adventure in fully living life “to the max.” (Yes, I just dusted off that 80s expression—bringing it back!).
