Have there been times when you feel like everyday is the same? Like there’s something missing in your life?
Do you wake up in the morning and wish that you don’t have to go out and just sleep all day?
There are many ideas in your head but you just can’t put them into action?
You feel like this is the right time but you’re just afraid to do it?
Do you feel like you’re stuck and you can’t move on?
I had felt all of these. These are just examples, actually. We all encounter stuck moments. Like problems that are just so hard to solve. When we were young, we cry when we’re hungry or hide under our beds when our mama finds out that we broke a vase or a souvenir. As we grow older, we face a whole lot of new problems, that we wish they could just be math problems, because math problems have ready answers. But that’s not how it works in real life.
On the days that I feel down, I browse over some cute images or photography because I love pretty things. 🙂
Most of the time, and that’s like everyday, I search for motivational and inspirational quotations to enlighten me. I keep them in my camera roll or post them to Facebook so that whenever I feel sad again, I’ll have something to cheer me up. Yes, these are just words, but words with great meaning. They’re like my simple treasures. 🙂
Because I love looking at pretty things, I have encountered an app in the App Store months ago. Let me introduce you to a friend who has somehow helped me realize that over-thinking the answer to a problem without doing anything won’t help. I must face it and act on it. The app is called “Unstuck
“. If you haven’t seen it yet, I encourage you to download it, besides it’s free. 🙂
Unstuck is a new in-the-moment approach to personal growth for anyone who wants to live better every day. Combining personalized digital tools with tips and know-how from a community of other people facing stuck moments, Unstuck makes it easy to get on-demand coaching whenever you need it.
The app offers tools and solutions for different types of “stuck moments”, like the ones I mentioned above. They have their Unstuck blog
too that shares real stuck stories from different people and how they were able to get unstuck. I also subscribed to their newsletter to receive weekly advice. They have wonderful quotes in there that I get to share with my friends. I recently followed their Words Worth Repeating
board in Pinterest
because the images are simply inspiring. 🙂
Of course like anything, this will not bring you ready answers. It will just help you realize the root cause of your problem and help you figure out how to solve it. The real answer to any stuck moment is within ourselves. We can’t always run or hide from problems, we need to solve them. And you know sometimes, there’s no problem at all, it’s just our brain that’s over-thinking. 🙂
