Stuck in Moment

I don’t know what you are going through now and what feeling you are stuck with. Such feeling and emotions are trapped in a cage. We are stuck in a moment and are mostly uncertain of how to make a change and move forward in life. Maybe the past or memory in your mind is constantly making you stay back in the moment of stillness. That little part of you wants to run away, escape. And the rest of you just want to sleep…maybe for a few hours, or maybe for a few months. Or maybe you just don’t want to do anything at all. So many maybes and not enough certainties. Where is the pause button when you need it? Where is the option to just halt and breathe? You crave a stopping point; a time to gain your spirit back and have some space to just breathe. But realistically, you know this doesn’t work. It’s not an option. So what do you do? You still must move forward. You have to. As human beings, we have a tendency to let the negative overcome the positive. When something goes wrong, we focus all of our energy on the bad.

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.” 

― Danielle Bernock, Emerging with Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, and the Love That Heals


Our mind gets absorbed by the negative. We get trapped. 
Your mind and body feels numb and frozen in a moment, a person at such stage cannot react to anything that’s suggested or advised as the mind is constantly feeding you with loads of negativity that anything at this point is hard for you to convince or look for something better Or, maybe you really just have no idea of what you want in life. That in itself is enough to make you want to just go in a hole hibernate. No matter what you’re feeling, it can be really hard to feel motivation to keep pushing forward – especially when you don’t know what you’re pushing for. But this is precisely the time that even a baby step can change your entire life. It can spark your energy and bring you back to life. It may take a while, but at least you will be moving forward. What do you honestly have to lose by at least attempting something? At least taking that risk? Even if you take a step forward and it feels like two steps back, so what? You start again. You refresh. You rethink. And you take this next step in a different direction. You have infinite possibilities ahead of you, so the odds are, you will find something that will be magnificent for you.


Don’t focus on what you left behind, what you lost, or what you gave up. Because these all happened specifically to transform you into something better. Stick it out, and Guarantee that you will end up somewhere wonderful. Pay attention to what you know you can have, rather than what you did have. We must always, without fail, move forward. Take that little step. What may seem like a terrifying little step could actually be the very beginning of a magical transformation. Just always remember, you have no idea what may be just out of sight. So whatever it is, start writing your new story, second by second, day by day. Maybe one chapter is over, but now it’s time for the rest of the story to play out. And really – who’s to say that a miracle is not waiting for you just around the corner?


“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
