Getting Unstuck By Taking Action

A Beloved Hombre Says…

“Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”

— Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Fun Challenge – yep, that’s right, I said fun – that you absolutely can do…

Go out and take action today to do something different to change habits and create movement in an area in your life in which you feel stuck. Pay attention to how the experience feels in your body and mind.

This could be as small as choosing to greet and give some lovin’ to every single dog you pass during the day (Confession: I do this every day). Or, this could be as big as having “that talk” with “that someone” in your life that you have been meaning to get down to the hard shit with because it has been nagging at you and draining your energy like a hungry vampire would for way too long.

Or, and this is one of my personal favorites, do something irreverent, in other words, out of your nature or maybe something in your nature that needs some air time bad.

Choose what feels right for you on this day, since we wake up in a new body every day. Take a small action. Drink in the learning. Manage the discomfort. Notice if it shifts your thought patterns or any physical sensations you have in your body. Pay attention for it’s these small shifts that can lead us out of discomfort and unhappiness into ease and satisfaction.

Go out and do it again. Every single day.

You can do it! Tell me the stories. I love hearing about this almost as much as I like eating dark chocolate covered caramels with sea salt. Yum Yum.

Warmly,

Nicole

    So, about getting unstuck, I am inspired by your blog to write a comment about not being exactly stuck, but in a bit of a rut….a comfortable one, not unpleasant, except for an undercurrent (a leitmotif, donchaknow), of loneliness. So while the actions I have taken or will take are certainly not radical, they are aimed right at the loneliness factor.
    So yesterday, without consulting the resident chef, I invited a couple to dinner here, AND, I will cook it myself. (They’ll never know what they’re missing.) This morning, I sent a cheery e-card to my daughter-in-law. Today I will write to a cousin whose sister just died. I will ask a potential new friend at the gym to have coffee. And I will think of something irreverent to do to assuage the beastie in my breast. Perhaps this comment about your blog will resonate with others who are not exactly stuck, but………
    Thanks for again inspiring me to move, observe, think. Mom
