Learning To Feel Still Instead of Stuck

I’m usually very decisive. But sometimes, I just get stuck. I feel like I have to make a move and I just can’t figure out what it is. And I hate that feeling. I feel anxious and restless and antsy. I was in the middle of one of these spells the other day when I looked up and saw this. Dark skies to the left. Clear, blue skies to the right. And I was smack in the middle. Still. Silent. With nowhere to go. And it struck me, that’s the exact mindset I need to hold when I’m feeling stuck. I’m not stuck, I’m just still. Waiting. Maybe those dark clouds will rush toward me, with their downpours and booming thunder and fierce lightning. Or maybe the clear skies will spread overhead, with the warm sun parting the clouds, kissing my skin. All I know, is I’m ready and capable to handle either. I am strong enough to walk through a storm. I am mindful enough to enjoy a perfect day. And that’s all I need to know. Sometimes, I don’t need to know what my next move is going to be. Sometimes, I need to know not to move. I need to just sit and wait and watch it all play out in front of me. For me. Thank you for coming to my brain dump.
