The End of Stuck

Stuck is a game people play. A game where boredom and blech win out over daring and triumph. Where the stories gathered way back when take precedence over the truth. Stuck feels real. It feels dire and tragic. In many ways it is. This life, is precious. Too amazing for the waiting for it to all work out in some mighty perfect way. Wondering about signs and signals from the unseen destined to spell it all out so that the stuck party can finally get its groove on.

Stuck is a game. One that we don’t have to play. One that we can toss to floor. Where we can turn the lights on anytime. We can drop stuck anytime if we are willing to abandon the need to prove who we are and get on with the task of actually living.

When our actions become a determining factor in the perception of our almighty self-worth, stuck happens. It happens when we want to get it all right in one fell swoop. When we believe making of mistake will reflect on the absolute essence of who we are. Stuck happens when we want others to rally around and see, finally see, how amazing we are because of what we have done.

The pressure. The pressure it builds up. Clouding the mind. Telling us that we can’t go on without the answer we need. But what it doesn’t tell us is that the answer can only come through action.

I know, you wouldn’t be stuck if you could only figure out the next step. Ask yourself if what you are looking for is really the next step, or the key the whole kingdom. Next steps are easy. Small. They are readily available. The options are plentiful. But if stuckness if ruling the roost, then giant and unknowable is dressed up like small and easy. Confusion reigns. The stories about getting it right become booming. The game ramps up and you freeze.

Want to end the game? Here is what you need to know: Your actions don’t determine who you are. Your actions determine what happens in your life. Who you are lives way outside of the realm of action and creation. Your worth, is inherent. It could never be touched by your perceived failures or successes. The essence of you is not effected by what you do. Action will not make you good, bad or perfect. It will enhance your experience of life on earth. Action rocks. It is a masterful form of expression and creating will open you to adventures and connections. Dropping the game of stuck will call you into life on tremendous ways. You are never going to know how it all turns out. There are little to no guarantees. You may make what you think are mistakes. You fail. None of that matters if you are willing to keep going. Stuck can end at any time if you willing to declare game over.
