Being stuck in life is like being stuck in a rollercoaster, when it’s at it’s highest point. Not easy to get out, but not impossible either.
The reason I wanted to write about this is because I’ve been stuck in that rollercoaster for the past week and I just wanted to get it off my chest, you know?
Ah, that feeling of being stuck is just so annoying. Everything goes right and then all of a sudden it just hits you in the face. I think that’s probably what Conor McGregor’s left hook feels like, damn…
For days I was a bit down, and although I’m receiving such great responses to my blog & social media posts and seeing my blog grow day by day, I just felt stuck for some reason. Of course I knew I couldn’t stay like that so I just did what felt right and from there I just went with the flow.
Deal with it
Ok, so the first mistake I made was trying to fight against it. ”Maybe if I just push myself, I’ll get over this” was what I was thinking. WRONG! Never force yourself, folks. You’ll only make things worse, trust me.. I’ve been there.
As soon as I started to accept the fact that I was stuck, a little lost and not so creative and motivated as I used to be, I started to deal with it the proper way. And yes, I should’ve known that acceptance is the first step into letting go, but aye, I’m human too!
Unplug the matrix
Okay, of course I did not unplug the matrix… I already did that in 2010. But I did unplug from the world for a moment and man did that feel great.
For a moment all I did was getting lost in the music I was listening to and nothing else. It was at that point where I started to charge back into my old motivated/creative self. Sometimes doing nothing leads to wonderful results. It’s almost like a ”less is more” kinda thing..
My Oprah Winfrey
Okay, I didn’t talk to Oprah, I talked to someone even better. My moms. She always knows what to say when I’m feeling a bit down or whatever. It’s actually because of her that I got inspired to write about this. Talking to someone who understands you is the only thing you really need when you feel shitty. It makes a big difference then someone who just listens.
Time to get up!
Once I did all of these things mentioned above, I felt re-charged. I realized that taking a break isn’t that bad. I’m constantly working on my blog and with constantly I mean, 25/8. This is my passion that I’m pursuing and I do whatever it takes to create things that I’m 100% proud of.
Sometimes I forget to take a break, though. Because I’m so passionate about what I’m doing and please don’t get me wrong, I’m not telling you this to get credibility for it. But I do want you to understand how involved I am in what I’m doing and the lessons I learn from it. I sometimes even dream about it LOL!
I’m feeling much better now. I’m back into my writing spirit and I know what to do again. I’m energetic and creative. Sometimes I’m still a bit down, but maybe that’s just because my brother ate my caramel/chocolate bar I left for my Vikings marathon…
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read all of this. This blog post is different than how I use to write but giving you guys a little inside on what’s going on in my life is also fun! The most important thing I tried to achieve with this, is that I hopefully could’ve given you some tips on how to deal with this issue and to also let you know that you’re not the only one dealing with this. Even your favorite farm boy that runs a personal development blog, sometimes needs some personal development advise herself!
Love you guys. X
