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.
