Getting On, Getting Off Or Getting Stuck On It
I feel stuck on the wheel of life at times and while I got on I cannot seem to get off sometimes! I am so dizzy!

and forget to start again? ~Winnie the Pooh
One BIG Wheel!
What about you?
I have days and weeks and sometimes even months where I feel on, off or plain stuck when it comes to certain aspects in living my life! I am learning that I have to find my own balance when it comes to myself and my needs. My professional life is stuck on idle lately and has been that way for a little too long! I know I have to rev it up and keep it moving forward though.
Starting the Day
How do you motivate yourself to jump start what is “stuck” in your life?
I tend to get stopped in my tracks when I set my expectations too high! I have to ask myself why I want something and then figure out how to go about getting it. This gives me the opportunity to listen to my needs and what I want in my life. Does this really matter to me or not?
The Next Thing Syndrome
I love getting jump started by thinking if I move on to the next thing and the next thing and the next thing I will get unstuck! All that really does for me is kick my frustration and impatience into high gear. Sometimes I take a break or at least a step back to take a new approach to seeing myself in my current situation! Sometimes that gives me the push I need to head in the right direction or at least gets me moving one foot in front of the other.

Gotta Love Procrastination
I love when procrastination sets in while being stuck! I try to motivate myself and even that backfires at times. This is especially true when it comes to a change or a transition in my life that I want no part in! I just dig myself deeper in, find the most comfortable position and wait it out. Someone hand me a rope or shovel, pretty please!
I also feel at times procrastination sets in because it just does not feel right to me to make a change or tranisiton in my life! I want to take the time to figure out the whys and why nots as well as weigh the pros and cons in making a change or transition in my life. Sometimes I do not want to make a change because I feel safe with the familiar and if it is not broke why fix it. Sometimes I do not want to make a change because it is not the right change to make at that time. Sometimes I make the change and end up on a path that I do not want to be on, but that is okay because I can change it again and again!
Learning to Coast Along . . .
Get Going, Stopped and Stuck Once Again
I love when I get myself going and barely get going before I am stopped and stuck again! It is like my mind and my body have the worst case of hiccups ever. I think it is my way of pausing and reflecting as well as looking at the directions to make sure I am going in the direction I want! I have to figure out what I need as I go along in order to head in the direction I want.
I really just have to figure out and find my own pace and balance when it comes to living my life! I also have to learn how to get on and off the “wheel of life” better and much smoother too!
