Stuck? The answers often are inside.

I know lots of people who are stuck. Stuck in careers they hate. Stuck in relationships that aren't going anywhere, no longer nurture, or actually are harmful to them. Stuck in some never-never land in transition, unsure what's ahead. And more. There are many types of "stuckness" and many reasons for being stuck.

I've been there, too. I know it's absolutely awful. If you get stuck long enough, you can end up believing that you'll never be anywhere else. You can lose hope. And it all chips away at any remaining shreds of self-esteem.

I also know that there is much to learn in a stuck time. If you're in that position now, what might your "stuckness" be telling you? Is it time to leave a job or relationship? Or is it time to change things up in a relationship or job? Is it time for some good ol' self-care? Or is it time to do some dreaming about what might be? For going back to remember what once gave you joy?

What was happening before you felt stuck? What would you like to see happen once you move out of the cocoon or stuck place? If you don't know, that's OK. Sometimes we really don't know what the next move could or should be. If that's where you find yourself, please contact me for a complimentary strategy session. It can be extremely helpful to have an objective outsider (a coach) ask you questions you might not have framed for yourself. The answers often are inside you. You are sometimes too close to them to see them (we often overlook or dismiss our own wisdom).

Let's get you back on the rails again—feeling the joy and savoring each day!
