A while back I took a piece of greenery from our bathroom and used it to decorate in our bedroom. Who knew this one simple decision would have such a profound effect on me and my mental clarity???
Sound dramatic? Well, for me it was…
THE LAMP AND ECHO DOT CORDS WERE SHOWING!!!
Anyone who knows me is aware that visual order is essential for my mental health and well being. Visual chaos drives me insane and the exposed cords on my bathroom counter were driving me NUTS!!!
I tried several different types of stems and arrangements but nothing looked right. Running to the store to pick something up was not an easy option because it’s hard on my mother to transfer in and out of the car and leaving here at home is just not an option.
So, for weeks now, I have been STUCK!!!
- My gaze was focused on the visual chaos of the cords
- My brain was constantly scanning the house for anything that would work
- Putting my makeup on and getting dressed in the morning was down right difficult
All I could focus on was the chaos and emptiness…I needed something quick!
LOW AND BEHOLD, THERE IT WAS…ALL I HAD TO DO WAS LOOK UP!!!
Yep, the very greenery was right there in my bathroom above my cabinet! My first thought was, “oh no, I can’t move that. It belongs in there!”. Then, I realized, it really didn’t because I had not even recognized the greenery was up there or that it could be an option to resolve my issue.
So, guess what I did this morning…Yep, you guessed it!
Whoa…Wait! What’s that piece of paper sticking on the mirror you ask? Isn’t that visual clutter???
Nope…That’s my Love Note from my Granddaughter.
It is right where she posted it and will stay there to serves as a daily reminder…
I AM LOVED!!!
So, why did I share this? Because perhaps there is something in your life that has you “STUCK” and this might help you get unstuck!
People often feel stuck because:
- They may feel they are not able to implement change
- They are unable to process past trauma or emotional wounds
- They don’t understand why things are the way they are
- They struggle with:
- Low confidence
- Low self-worth
How to stop feeling stuck:
- Take a break
- Make a gratitude list
- Go to bed earlier
- Take a mental health day
- Do some inner work
OR…JUST LOOK UP!!!
Look Up & Have a Blessed Day,
