It feels like there's a lot of it going around at the moment, and I feel it too. So I thought, now would be a good time to fire up the ol' blog again.
Unfortunately, I haven't found a way around this. Turns out sometimes you just have to feel those feelings for a little while.
It's easy to spiral into misery, I do it often. It's a talent of mine. But, even if you've just hit a bump in the road that's going to require a complete change of future plans, you've hit the bump in the road because... you're on the road somewhere. You might not feel like you've got to where you wanted to go, but you've made some progress. Keep that in your brain for now.
It might feel like the biggest, worst-est thing that could ever have happened, but, let's be honest, it's probably not.
If it is, that's great news. Problems have solutions, even if you can't see it quite yet....
But also, the call is coming from inside the house. It might not be a problem per se, but the answer is somewhere within you. Just needs some figuring out.
If the bottom has just dropped out of your life plan, you can't for one second think you can magic up a new life plan on the spot. For example - you've lost your job. Maybe this *would* be a great time to follow your lifelong dream of retraining as a dentist, but I'm assuming that will take a bit of time. Look at what you'd need to do in the meantime to take the pressure off a bit.
It's true. From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, your brain is solving problems. It's what you do.
When the fuzzy feeling starts to subside you might have a moment of clarity, or, just start to gradually figure out what got you to this point of impossibility. Keep your eyes peeled, because that might be the key to working out what you want, deep down.
So you're feeling a bit more together. You've figured out what you need to do. Amazing work! Enjoy that feeling... while it lasts. Life is a rollercoaster, you just gotta ride it.
