Yes, there are going to be bad days. Yes, we’re all going to feel like we’re diving into the deep end. Overwhelmed. Stuck. Frustrated.
It all happens. To the smallest pea in the pod to the largest pumpkin in the patch.
What also happens is time continues to tick on, unrelenting.
So, as to not remain in a rut of overwhelm, give up the habit of waiting and pick up the habit of keepin on.
Keep doing. One step at a time. If it helps, sure, think about what’s getting at you as you keep on too.
One trick that I habitually adapt is to find a creative outlet to contemplate the rut. I write sad and lonely heart felt poems, I sing the most heartbreakingly slow songs I know. The list goes on, because as a human being, the ebb and flow is continual, thus the need to just keep on trying is continual.
Some tips I’ve learned over the years:
- nobody is to blame, not even yourself
- nobody is perfect, there are no exceptions
- you learnt from old mistakes, remember?
- is that an excuse running through your mind? Oh no it isn’t!
- waiting does not solve anything
