It’s finally spring where I live. We had a long and difficult winter, highlighted by a few late April snowstorms that people either weren’t prepared for or simply didn’t have the energy to deal with; the city struggled to find enough drivers to plow the streets and many of my neighbors didn’t shovel their sidewalks, resulting in a sloppy mess that took several warm days to melt away.
If you talk to anyone who has driven in a winter like the one we just experienced in the upper midwest, they will likely have a story about getting stuck in the snow and ice. It’s a helpless feeling when your tires are spinning in place, but anyone with a story about getting stuck in the snow probably also has a story about strangers showing up to give them a push.
We all need a push every once in a while.
Getting stuck is a reality of winter driving; it’s also a reality of life.
When your car is stuck, it’s not incapable of ever driving again, it just needs a push to regain traction and begin moving.
It’s the same thing when you are in stuck in life, because as much as you can try to get yourself unstuck, it’s often impossible to do it on our own…so rather than spinning your tires and creating icy ruts that keep you trapped in a place where you no longer want to be, accept that you are stuck and realize this is a normal experience, and then find someone to give you a push so you can regain your traction and begin moving.
If you currently feel stuck, I would love to hear your story and tell you how coaching can provide the push you need to get moving in the right direction. Just send me a message and I’ll be in touch to schedule a conversation.
