08 Sep Don’t feel trapped – you always have choices!
Sometimes we feel like we’re trapped in a situation. We can’t see our way out – and we just have to “live” with it.
I know the feeling, I’ve been there myself several times.
When I feel like that is usually when I’m struggling the most in my life. I’m angry, frustrated, disengaged and have lost any sense of who I am and hope of a different future.
That’s where I was several years ago. And then I started to change my life DRAMATICALLY!
5 years on, my life looks almost completely different from what it once was. But before those changes started, I felt trapped and was desperately unhappy and actually dead inside. I felt I had no choices and my life was set all around me. I felt I didn’t have a right to be happy and I just had to “live with” what I had.
Yet I did have a choice. And I did deserve to be happy. And it started small.
One day, I chose to buy take away for dinner rather than cook it. I realised as the food provider, it was my choice. So I took the choice. I did something different. It felt weird, it felt scary and I did have to manage the consequences!
But it was a choice!!! In that instant I remembered I had choices and it was up to me to make them.
That small choice of take away over cooking, literally changed my life. It was the first step for me to live the life I wanted to live. Most of the choices I had to make weren’t that easy, but I had them and I took them. AND I AM THRILLED THAT I DID!
Sometimes those choices aren’t as clear as we’d like them to be. We can’t see the forest for the trees.
So, I have a tip for you, that I’ve used a lot. Check it out below and start owning your life!
Own your life!!
Yours with Soul,
