Have you ever been at a point in your life where you feel like you are right there on the edge of a really big change, but you just can't seem to get everything in life aligned? Where you know what you want to do and how to do it, but you just can't seem to get the world to cooperate? Where you need to change things in life, but it is drastically more challenging than you ever anticipated it would be? And you KNOW that this is it! This is "the one thing" in life you are missing to bring out the best in you-- as a person, as a woman (or man), as a productive member of society? (not that I'm not productive already, I just want more out of life...much more!). Anyone ever encounter this phase in life? How do you beat the feelings of helplessness? There are just times when you are at a point where you simply CANNOT move forward without other things being finished!--True

I think the trick here is to keep your sights set on the mountain. Keep focused why you are doing and handling things right now and what the outcome will eventually be. Despite the frustration that you can feel at a stage like this, dont forget that it also means that you are progressing and improving. Try to enjoy the excitement of what your future will look like once you are though this stage.


Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

True, I think you & I are at the same phase/point in our lives. After 22 yrs at the same job, I feel I need a change. I've always wanted to own my own business. Be my own boss. About 3 weeks ago, I was handed that opportunity on a silver platter. No strings attached. Just give my 2 weeks notice & take over a great business. I was so nervous about the whole thing but I was gonna jump in with both feet & get them wet. This is what I had been waiting for. Then, of course, what happens next. Things get complicated. I had a doctors appt. scheduled in between my meetings with the owner of the business (the business I want & am being offered). I went to my appt. & my Doc says that I'm gonna need surgery very soon. If I take the offer & take over this business, I don't have insurance & can't pay for the surgery I will need soon. So, sadly, I had to say no to the offer & have to stay at my old job for the insurance. I truly want to believe that this is a lesson in patience for me. Or at least I'm gonna try to take it this way. I believe that someday, the change & opportunity I've been waiting for will come. And that day, everything will go well & according to my plan. Until then, I remind myself to be patient. There's a line I love from the movie "The Shawshank Redemption" it says "Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things & a good thing never dies." I hope one day you get your chance. PG.

That is life in a nutshell isn't it. I have dreams, goals etc, and I have even written the steps that it takes to achieve them. I mark off the things i accomplished, and reevaluate what still needs to be done. Somethings like finding a partner, the only thing I can do is put myself out there, be me and see if i get some nibbles on the line I can't get down on it. I can only move forward. There are days i shake my head and wonder....but then I believe one of the fine ladies out there will say wow

I'm somewhat in that phase. I think I've been on that phase for quite some time now.. I feel like there's something missing and even if I can feel everything on my body, there's always something empty. And even if I feel empty, I feel so much weight coming from my heart. I try to prioritize, live life for now, love all I can, keep up with everything.. but I feel stuck in a rut that I cannot get out of! We'll get over it soon. :) And I'll blog about this feeling too. x) Thanks True. -Thea
