I spy a Love problem among us.
It has contributed to millions of people feeling stuck in life; doing something they don’t want to be doing every day; being where they don’t want to be every day; and feeling negative about themselves and others – every day.
All of this “stuck” dynamic is really a lie. Yes, I said “a lie!”
It’s a lie, not because it is not reality every day, but rather because each of us has the individual power to make changes – to determine our destiny. Our change choices might be limited to one thought or one step at a time, but there IS individual power to choose. Each of us is only “stuck” to the degree that we refuse to look at our thoughts and feelings about the mucky mess of “stuck!”
What is the one-thought or one-step breakout for you?
For me, it is realizing that I am only stuck to the degree that I focus on the hopelessness of my situation. I am only stuck as long as I focus on what others are doing or not doing; what others say; what others want; and what others think.
Oh, but when I shake my feelings and slap my brain into focusing on MY problems, MY options, MY best options, and MY steps into action – all of a sudden, I genuinely realize I have the power and the executive authority to begin changing my reality.
Yes, it may be one-step or one-thought at a time but THAT is powerful and it IS the beginning of change.
Perfectionism is simply about believing something or someone (myself included) MUST be without fault or failure to be acceptable. Even more, perfectionism is about refusing to accept or tolerate any dynamic that doesn’t equal a certain level of quality or achievement.
Most often, the burden and impact of perfectionism are harshest upon SELF.
Self-expectations for tolerating, being, and doing are the harshest of masters. Oh, but when SELF allows the sweet oil of love (positive affection, interest, pleasure, and acceptance) to flow – BOOM! Love is such a healer, especially self-love.
Loving SELF enough to do what is good and healthy and right for SELF is the beginning of true transformation – not just change. For it is in the transformation of the thoughts and feelings that each of us begins the process of “getting unstuck!”
