We all have our moments of stuck-ness. Or weeks. Or months. We come in and out of it….of being in the flow and so connected in so many ways, creating magic….and then other times we feel like we can’t manage to even pull ourselves out of bed, or decide what to eat for breakfast.
When we find ourselves “stuck”…it’s so easy to beat ourselves up about it wondering what we did wrong. What we did or didn’t do, should have done differently….what are we missing? We do we keep falling out of it? Why aren’t we “succeeding”?
But the bottom line is, we’re exactly where we need to be. It may not feel like it at the moment. We may not understand why circumstances are what they are.
The universe knows. It know better than us, it has our back, ALWAYS. Unfortunately, some growth happens to feel painful or difficult. But we don’t have to make the pain worse by adding our own self-bashing into it.
We have to remember to allow ourselves some grace. We are human beings, complicated creatures here to learn many lessons. And we will have ample opportunities to learn them, over and over! It’s time to allow ourselves to be human, feel our feels, find a spark of insight, and then move on.
To remember to treat ourselves the same way we would treat a little child who is trying so hard, and having a hard time. To give ourselves a break. Nurture our own little inner-child-selves and say “It’s okay. You’re doing great! Just pick yourself up and start again”.
To remember sometimes we just have to take a moment and STOP. And BREATHE. And BE. Nothing more than that. Because in that moment of pause is where the insight comes, where the clarity comes. Maybe just a tiny little glimpse of something, but a little something in the right direction. In the direction of inner peace, of happiness, of JOY.
To remember to surround ourselves with other people on this same journey. Positive people who can uplift us and remind us of who we really are. To reach out to them and say “Hey! I need a boost.” Or to find a way to regularly spend time with people who will help us stay in our higher vibration.
So remember…you are okay. You are more than okay. You are magical and amazing and on the verge of even more greatness than you could have imagined. You are evolving and growing and that in and of itself is the most important work you can do.
So don’t sweat the “stucks”. They aren’t really “stucks”. They are pauses for expansion and greatness. Allow them, welcome them, learn from them.
Dance them out…
Sweat them out…
Yell them out…
MOVE THEM OUT.
Get your groove flowing again.
You’ve got this.
Lol, no, you’re just being given a chance for expansion:)
I love this post. It made me think about how much grace I give my kids and husband and how little I give myself. Thanks for reminding me to be patient with myself too.
Awww, thanks mama! That’s awesome! Isn’t it funny how much time and energy and love we expend on them automatically, but we forget to do the same for ourselves? I’m just as guilty! I needed this reminder too and am trying to be mindful to remember to do little things for myself too. I always push them aside and say “later I’ll do xyz, right now I have to do THIS for husband/child/friend and I’ll take care of myself later. Except most often later doesn’t come unless I really really really force myself for it to come.
This is awesome & so timely!!
