Sometimes you just don’t know how stuck you are

What's the view like from your path?

As we go about our daily lives, we can sometimes feel a little stuck. We know we have the same routines and the same job to go to, we sometimes even eat the same foods on an evening. I think that sometimes we don’t really see the big picture, we don’t quite realise quite how stuck we have got, until we get out there, do something different and look back.

This was how it was for me and I speak a bit about it on today’s podcast episode. I distinctly remember one day, just before we left our home that was supposed to be a temporary stop but where we actually stayed close to 7 years in, and thinking that I could clearly see how stuck we’d become. We’d become enslaved by all our possessions, by the commitments we had taken on and by our jobs we felt stuck in. The feeling when I realised I was about to step out of that was absolutely amazing!

As you move on in your quest to begin your dream, you also move out of the comfortable paths of life that we walk on. You’ll start to take less well trodden paths and in doing so you’ll see different views. It can feel ever so lonely sometimes, ever so boring and ever so hard. That’s when you’ll need to know where you’re headed and what reason you have for heading there.

You’ll also need the support of people around you. Some will think you are crazy. Some will wish they were as brave as you are being. Just smile at the people who might be negative and spend your time with the supportive ones. Find likeminded people, those who are on the path and slightly farther ahead than you. Learn from them, watch out for the holes and pitfalls that they came across. Be inspired by them.

I want to be there and hear from you when you take that path, you get far enough along that you feel you can safely look behind and when you too can see how stuck you’d been and that you are well on your way to achieving your goals and dreams.

I’m planning to set up a Facebook group in the next week or so and will pop the link here when I do. It will be a place we can share our successes, worries and feelings of being stuck! I hope you’ll join me there.
