“When we feel stuck, going nowhere — even starting to slip backward — we may actually be backing up to get a running start.”
– Dan Millman
You feel stuck sometimes, right? We all do. That’s normal. Sometimes, things don’t go our way, it seems like our wheels are spinning, we’re not moving forward, we keep running into obstacles, … We’re all been there. I’m here to say “it’s OK”. It’s part of the process.
My teacher used to say that life is like stairs. It’s made of plateaus and steps. The important thing to remember is not to get frustrated when you’re on each plateau. As a matter of fact, each plateau provides us the opportunity to get prepared to rise the next occasion, e.g. the next step. So, hang in there. If it feels like you’re stuck, you’re not, you do have options. And most likely, you’re getting geared for the next step.
