It’s Okay to Feel Stuck
As I hurl through space time towards the ripe old age of 30 I’m learning three things:
- Everyone deals with personal baggage on the daily
- Everyone doesn’t know what they’re doing
- Everyone feels stuck at some point
2017 has been a sobering year for me. I left my full-time career as a supply chain analyst. My wife and I experienced a misscarriage. I started a new business.
A lot of baggage has piled up. A lot of I don’t know what I’m doing has crossed my mind. And over the past month or so, I simply feel stuck.
Imagine sitting on a speeding train your whole life…
…and finally deciding it was time for a change.
Leaping from a speeding train (even a metaphorical one) isn’t easy. You hit the ground hard, tumble for a bit, then come to a complete stop in the train’s dust.
Scraped and bruised you sit up, and slowly dust settles, reavealing opportunities for a new direction.
But then it overwhelms you, What direction do I chose? What if I chose wrong?
We panic. We hesitate. We feel stuck.
But we’re not stuck.
We simply haven’t learned to walk on our own.
One step at a time. That’s all it takes.
