Stuck … in the process of finding happy

Stuck. Yesterday I was stuck in my blogging. A week ago I was stuck in my meal planning. 2 years ago I was stuck in pain and sleeping.
Sometimes we just get stuck in the fog.

Fog (2)

So how do we get un-stuck?

Yesterday, when I was stuck with my blog it wasn’t because I don’t have anything to say because I’m kind of a chatterbox, AND I am kind of on a roll with where we are going with this. But it was because I’m doing this blogging challenge at the same time with Sarah at Sark eMedia. I signed up (twice now), they send emails, I try and follow along. Well, we got to the whole “keyword and seo” business and I, for the second time, was just LOST. Total Brain fog. I read it over and over, I asked about it to some people I trust, I asked on the facebook page, I read some more, I searched through the seo plugin on my blog. It just wasn’t sinking in. I was stuck because until I could figure that out I couldn’t focus on moving on.

Then someone answered me on the facebook page, and a little adjustment to my own thinking occurred, and the fog cleared.

All the sudden I understood, I mean not all of it, but enough to get me unstuck. One little shift in thought is all it took. No more fog.

This is how it is in all aspects of our lives. Can’t find happy? Why? Because we are stuck, we need a shift in thinking. That is what all the questions are about, the ones I’ve been throwing at you in the previous posts. It’s all about shifting your thought process.

Naturally today’s questions are:

What are  you “stuck” in?

Can you step back?

Can you look at it from another angle?

Can you shift your thinking just a hair to find the answer?

If you could move ONE roadblock out of your way what would it be?

Are you 100% certain the roadblock needs to be moved?

Maybe the lesson is not in getting the roadblock moved, but in finding a way to go around it, over it or simply live WITH it.

  2. Stinkin’ Thinkin’ is what my minister calls it at church! LOL I totally identify with this. And for me it’s definitely (usually) about applying a shift in my thinking. I tend to think HUGE instead of ‘bite-sized’ chunks. I’m learning to break stuff down, take small steps and take pride in each one toward the big goal. It works… sometimes LOL

    1. Good one, and I especially hate the stinkin’ thinkin’ that sneaks up on you. I’m learning to get rid of it though. Writing helps. Growing old (er) helps too.
