The burden of the blocks we face can begin to compromise our clarity.
I have been encircled by walls that stood firm and mocking in my direction. I have felt like there was no window to be discovered and that my pain was permanent. As much as I wanted answers in the form of neon arrows to point me in the right direction, they don’t always appear with such charge.
When we get closer to our blockage it can begin to take many shapes. Fear. Anxiety. Helplessness. Hopelessness. Life begins to close in and it is easy to feel claustrophobic in our own skin.
How, in the perpetual motion of closed door after closed door, do we find our window?
Take a step back. The clarity we seek is not in the blockade that stands before us. The perspective of up close and personal ache is only that. Ache. The answer is not to run from the pain or wall, the answer is in the stepping outside of it and looking in from a different direction. What are the circumstances that led to the moment of standing still? To the closing of the door?
It is in fact temporary. Your lull, your lack of direction, the doors that close: all temporary. If you feel these things are lasting or will last forever, then you’re setting the intention for the longevity of unwanted emotions. Intentions should be set for positive growth and the things in life that bring inspiration. It always becomes a choice to continue down a certain road. We may not have put ourselves on that path, but there is a decision to be made on whether we are to remain.
Seek inspiration. With inspiration comes clarity. With clarity comes our truth. Where is your inspiration hiding? Make the move to find it through things that mean the most to you. Go to your favorite place, take time to help others, and spend time reading and educating yourself on things that are of interest. You won’t find inspiration tucked away in your private pain, you will find it looking back from a different place.
Create new and positive routines and habits for yourself. Change things up. Promote self-care and self-love by offering new joys in your life. A morning walk, exercise, or a meeting with a friend. Don’t allow negative patterns to take hold and keep you going in circles or down the same roads that have led to previous undesired outcomes.
This is your story. Allow for walls to change and windows to appear. Believe, be inspired, and the outcome will be greater than you ever imagined.
