As grateful as I am for the life that I have, I think I spend a lot of time…wallowing, for lack of a better word. I do a LOT of thinking about shortcomings, my own, and sometimes even those of the people around me. Not that I think anything is necessarily wrong with that, but really….it doesn’t do anything to improve my life. And really…my life could use improvement. At the very least, my outlook could.
I realize that when it comes to things that bother me, I’m often stuck waiting on things to just fall into place on their own, instead of being proactive. Certain issues in my marriage, parenting, career, finances… instead of progressing, are remaining stagnant, just because of laziness! It’s so much easier to just not think about it, and float along, letting things remain the way they are. *sigh*
But, in any case, it really is time to take matters into my own hands. I could continue to just go along with the flow, and have a happy, moderately successful life. But why settle for that. Instead of being a good parent, I could be a great one. Instead of just having a happy husband, I could be a terrific wife. Instead of being a good graphic designer, I could be a phenomenal one. NO, wait. I AM a great parent, terrific wife, and phenomenal graphic designer. I should start these affirmations now, right? It has to begin somewhere.
I just know that I could be a really dynamic woman, if I can push past the complacency.
Have you ever just felt stuck? How did you get past it?
