Do you ever feel like you’re just… stuck? You have stuff you want to do, stuff you need to do… and you might even really enjoy doing them (or not, in the case of housework and chores etc.), but you just… can’t? It’s like you’re in a holding pattern behind an invisible wall that no amount of pushing gets you out of, at least, that’s how it feels for me.
I tend to get stuck with my crafts, oftentimes for very stupid reasons. I’m out of thread in one color. I can’t think of the name for a project. My project is in time out because I made a mistake and it’s usually an easy fix but…
I hate that feeling. And when I get stuck like that, with my crafts at least, I often can’t move on to something else because that one thing is taunting me with its existence.
I’ve been feeling stuck a lot lately, and it really sucks. There are a couple of projects that I love, that I need to finish, but… that one color I’m out of is holding me back and for some reason, I just can’t push past it and switch to another color.
Hell, I’ve even been stuck with this blog, because I’ve been wanting to post for a while, but couldn’t get myself to actually write about this because I was… you guessed it… stuck. I’ll be honest, the only reason I finally managed to push past that particular holdup was a friend posting how she was feeling stuck and it struck a chord. I know I’m not alone in this, and that actually helps a little.
So what do you do when you feel stuck? How do you get past that invisible, unrelenting barrier? I’d love to know because so far I haven’t really had much luck myself.
