We have all been there, a point in our lives where we are unable to move forward, we don't want to go back but cannot create enough momentum or overcome the fear or what ever it is that is holding us back from moving forward with our lives. The above quote is so simple yet its powerfulness lies in its simplicity as anyone can relate to it. The good news is that the more you read it or learn it and repeat to yourself either out loud or in your head, or even write it down, the more it will make sense, the more it will stick with you.
The answer really is that you don't have to do everything right now and all together. That would be impossible. You cannot prioritize everything even if everything needs to get done. This will really keep you stuck in a rut.
We all think life rushes passed us and time files but does it really?
Look at nature, look at the sky, the waves, the animals. are they going around all freaked out, stressed, are clouds zooming past, are waves suddenly speeding up, are birds singing less because they have no time, not at all, nature is a great teacher and yes animals can be a lot wiser than us if you watch them. they can teach a lot about priorities and the waves and clouds simply go about doing what they do best and life continues as normal.
The same can be applied to anything and everything that needs to get done, one step at a time, set priorities fast without dwelling too much or you will never get going. What is the worst that can happen, you change the plan or you change course. That's fine and its also doable.
When thoughts come flooding to your mind, act as if you are a teacher.You know the troublemakers and the ones that should the loudest aren't always the ones that know what they are talking about, they may be just looking for attention, trying to distract or sabotage you.
Select the thought you want to listen to and act on it carefully, then the next and so on. If every thought is shouting for attention, there is too much noise and chaos and nothing gets done. The same applies for any harm done to you. Don't bunch all the negative things together. They are all not related and some really are only minor and although upsetting, won't affect you in the long term.
Anything else that has more significant consequences for you, again break them down and try to separate the person from the problem if it is a person that caused the problem and see what part of the problem you can tackle first. it is less emotional to deal with the problem than with the person who caused it and you will need to build up your emotional capacity and reserves to be able to deal with the person who caused the problem in the first place.-Orla Kelly
