How to Move Ahead When “Everything Sucks”

Have you ever felt blindsided?

Like a situation appeared in your business or life that threw things into a tailspin and suddenly all of your options to move ahead seem, well…

Kinda sucky?

Not having the best situation, but seeing the best IN your situation is the key to happiness. Click To Tweet

Sooner or later, we all find ourselves in the midst of a challenging situation and can feel ill-equipped to move forward.

When the proverbial dookie hits the fan, many of us react in one of two ways. Either:

1. We freeze up and become unwilling to make any decision — hoping that somehow, someway, everything will “magically” take care of itself (which it rarely does).

Or:

2.  We make a series of rash decisions from a place of anger or fear, triggering even more seemingly sucky problems than we had in the first place.

Thankfully, there is a third option.

Is This All There Is? How To Create A New Life Vision

I’m back on the East Coast and it feels awesome to be here for spring!

There’s such a sense of renewal, hope and possibility during this time of year.

New buds, gorgeous flowers, and change is definitely in the air.

A vision isn’t just a picture of what could be; it’s an appeal to our better selves. @RosabethKanter Click To Tweet

For many of us, spring breathes new life into our ever-growing list of hopes and dreams — things we want to experience, achieve and accomplish.

But what happens if that’s NOT true for you?

What happens when you’ve actually achieved all your goals, and you’re left feeling deflated and wondering…

Is this all there is?!?

Feeling depressed – like something’s missing? Try this.

I had no idea I was going to write about this today, but when I thought about whether or not I should mention it . . .

I don’t feel like I have a choice as I’m still pretty shaky.

Sunday afternoon we were hit pretty bad in a car accident.

Josh, myself and Kuma were driving down a quiet side street here in Venice when a driver sped through a back alleyway — without stopping — and slammed into the side of our car.

The impact was horrific. Glass shattered everywhere, and in an instant our car was forced underneath another parked car on the side of the road.

Thank God, we’re all fine (save nasty bruises, soreness, totaled cars, Kuma peed on my pants – LOL etc.).

The most upsetting thing though is how my mind keeps flashing these “alternate reality” scenarios in my head. These horrible, mini movies where if it were just a few seconds off . . .

Either Josh, Kuma or myself may not have survived. That’s really is the worst part for me — everytime I shut my eyes or try to rest, they come up.

So before we get into today’s episode, I invite you to take a moment to connect with and express your genuine love for the dearest people in your life.
