The blank page.
So much and so little to say.
But still, nothing.
That’s OK. That’s just how it is.
I have made a daily (or at least 5-6 times a week) commitment to myself to write on my blog. So today when I feel somewhat low on energy due to a late night and overindulgence after a fun night with family and a morning run and long bike ride, I am just not FEELING it.
But I am giving myself PERMISSION TO TRY anyway. And who knows? Maybe something might come of it. I mean there are actual words on a page now! (Pretty easy to do when you’re rambling I know but it would also be pretty easy NOT to do given my current state of effectiveness).
It’s not that I don’t give myself a break or anything it’s just that it means that much to me:
my writing, my PerMISSION ME, actually SHOWING UP and doing what I really want to do.
It makes me feel good.
What makes you feel good?
That is a question well worth pondering on regularly. Then actually ACTING ON and DOING THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. It doesn’t have to be all day every day; it doesn’t have to be your job, it doesn’t have to be your purpose, it doesn’t have to be significant. It just has to feel good. Really, really, REALLY GOOD. Hmmm I probably need a better descriptor than ‘GOOD’.
Ok then, it makes YOU FEEL ALIVE.
What a way to live hey?!
Feeling alive. Living alive. Alive living. AKA Thriving.
Life is about thriving.
Anything else is just surviving.
Obviously our circumstances can keep us in survival mode and this can be hard to step out of but incorporating little bits of thriving into our daily life makes a big difference to how we experience life.
You are not trapped by anything, you just THINK you are.
You just haven’t found a way out yet. It can seem impossible but it’s not, nothing is. You’ve just got to look for it. You have got to WANT to seek.
You need to be a #Finder.
Keep on finding; finding a new way to try. POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. There is ALWAYS another way. You may not be able to THINK it but you can FEEL it. It may require a whole heap of COURAGE to enter the unknown but there WILL BE ANOTHER WAY.
To not take the path less travelled is to CHOOSE TO STAY STUCK.
That’s OK but know that it is a choice. YOUR CHOICE. When you tell yourself you have NO CHOICE know that your are CHOOSING to think that. In doing so YOU CAN CHOOSE AGAIN. And again. And again…… (Repeat to fade).
Give yourself permission to choose.
Choose to be a #Finder.
P.S. If you choose to become #Finder come over to the The Dark Side Revolution (FREE Closed FB Group) we will explore ways to get out of staying stuck. I look forward to welcoming you to the other (dark) side. x
