Part of what makes this journey so powerful is the insight gained from examining your life. Many people who are stuck have spent a lot of time investing in creating a story that explains why they are stuck. Often, it is a well-rehearsed tale that draws on the wounds of the past. Our past stories have more power over us than we realize. The wrong kind of stories can paralyze us.
Sometimes it’s not the stories from our past that keep us stuck. Many people live in a state of stuckness because they are delaying until a future time when everything is finally perfect. (I wish! If anyone has that info, please let me know the date, and I will circle it in my calendar!) It is easy to think that if we just wait a little longer, somehow something will magically change and get us unstuck. (In spite of this never happening before!)
One thing I can tell you about fluid thinking is that it needs input from you for it to work. You have to be the one making the choices about what changes you want to see in your life, not the changes your partner or your boss or your mother wishes you would make. You are steering this ship. Writing out your own wants and desires is what will spark the change that gets you uns*uck, not whatever you think is “supposed” to be the right answer.
You will start to gain real traction on your path as you learn about others who have done their own work to leave their past behind and began to live for the present. Part of the challenge of getting unstuck is fighting the feeling that you are alone in your struggle. Trust me, I know. That feeling can really weigh you down over time. But when you can start the day without the burdens of the past on your shoulders, you can make better decisions and choose new outcomes.
