As I spoke to some adoptive parents this past weekend, I knew it was going to be important for me to say this in a bigger way to everyone ...I know that life can be scary sometimes - both literally and figuratively - but it is important to not let scared equal stuck!
There is always a way to change your life so that you feel empowered, so that you feel in control, so that you can say I AM HAPPY! Now, what you didn't see me write or hear me say is that you can change your life to be PERFECT (there's no such thing here on this planet). However, I know that as long as we are moving forward in the direction we choose...the fear cannot control our happiness!
So the question today is...what step do you need to take to keep from being stuck? How will you begin to move forward? It could be anything from making that phone call and reaching out to taking a class to learn a new tool, to asking for help from that person that gets it.
You can do this. Yes, it might be scary. It might not work and you will have to try again, the other person might not respond exactly how you'd liked or it may take talking to many before you find who can really help...but you ARE NOT STUCK...you are moving forward. YOU ARE IN CONTROL of your life, NOT FEAR or WORRY!
HERE'S THE KEY...in the midst of moving forward you are able to see and experience ALL the GOOD in your life. It IS there, it's just that when we are stuck it is hard to see. Keep moving, taking risks, trying new things....don't let scared equal stuck!
You and your family deserve a magnificent life...do what it takes to get it!
Remember...you are NOT alone!
