Are you in need for a change?

Perhaps you are feeling stagnant and unsure about how to get unstuck in life?

Well let’s explore this topic and see how you can regain some flow.

In life, we’ve all been in a state of feeling stuck and being in desperate need for a change.

We’re sooo used to repeating the same habits over and over that the thought of being able to get unstuck almost seems impossible.


But  be encouraged my friends…there is a cure for feeling stuck.



How to get Unstuck?

The following points are three ways to get out of your comfort zone and break free from your complacency rut when you are in desperate need for a change:

1. Switch Up Your Routine

I went to the movies with a friend this past weekend.   While I’ve known this particular friend quite a while, I haven’t hung out with her in years.

Because we were searching for one movie in particular, we ended up going to a movie theater that was not in our neighborhood…

and that I also hadn’t been to in years.

Did I mention that I hadn’t been to the movies in a while, period?

And to my surprise, I had a refreshingly fun and enjoyable time.


I must admit…I had gotten in somewhat of a rut.  You know…working hard at work all week long…

Sometimes you find yourself lacking the energy and motivation to put forth the effort to go out.

Before you realize it, the weekends can just become a time to decompress and try to get back to feeling normal (after the crazy demands of the work week).

One weekend sitting at home can turn into another…and another…until you get used to it…and it just becomes a comfortable routine….


Needless to say, this is not good!!


How will you…

  •  meet that new love of your life if you’re always sitting at home?
  •  be in that high vibration, fun mode to attract him/her (if you’re not in the habit of actually being that fun person)??
  •  be in a position to make new friends???


Answeryou won’t!!


So vow to get unstuck today!



2.Hang Out With A Different Set of Friends

When you are in need for a change, it helps to switch up your friend group from time to time.

Because when you hang around a particular group of people, you usually have a certain way of being and acting in their presence.

Likewise, they have a certain way they perceive you and expect you to act.

This expectation can keep you somewhat locked into a box

But have you ever noticed that when you’re around a different group of people, you may act quite differently??

There are other characteristics and personality traits that emerge that allow your growth and evolved sense of authenticity to come forward…

This experience,  you’ll find, makes you feel more alive, free, and invigorated.   It will be just the added spice you need to enhance and enliven your life!!

3. Go Out to Some New and Different Places 

Have you ever had the experience of  driving past a particular spot on a daily basis and never really noticing your surroundings??

Then one day you randomly look up and you’re shocked to find  something there you have never seen before?

(i.e. a store, building, apartment complex) that has always been there

You think to yourself how could I have never seen this before?   It’s crazy!

But because you’ve become so used to being stuck in a routine…accepting the daily status quo…

You somehow stopped noticing and engaging with the world around you.

Without realizing it, this zombie like state dulls your senses and enthusiasm for life.

The same thing happens when you continually go to the same places and do the same things.

Switch it up next time and see how your senses come alive again, and how that sparkle returns to your eyes!!

4. Get Back in Balance

As human beings, we love routines…

It gives us comfort to be able to predict and anticipate what’s coming next in our lives…

But remember, everything in moderation!!

Don’t keep doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.

If you’re always hanging with that same complacent friend….

that never wants to step out the box and try something new (yet she sits around complaining about  her life feeling stuck)….

 then maybe it’s time to switch it up!   



It’s ok to go ahead and say yes.  Acclaimed producer, screenwriter and author, Shondra Rhimes, makes this point in her amazing book titled Say Yes.

Saying yes is all about being open to God and the universe and all that it has to offer you!

It’s about choosing to dance when given the opportunity to sit or dance.

It’s about being open and ready when an opportunity presents itself.

So stop, today, right now, don’t even think about it…

Today, get out of your comfort zone and vow to live again!!

Get back to having wonderful and fresh new experiences!

It’s the only way life can find you!

It won’t be possible if you’re hidden inside the house all the time.

You’ll remain hidden, and your beauty and greatness will never be able to shine through!

Just say yes!!


So today, go out and conquer the world and breakout of the feeling of being stuck.
