I’m doing another 21-Day meditation experience with Deepak and Oprah. This one comes at a most serendipitous time in my life as some of you may know. This meditation experience is all about getting “unstuck” and removing the limitations we put on ourselves that stop us for living our fullest life. I’ll be doing these meditations daily and documenting my reflections on this lovely blog here. Follow along and feel free to leave comments below if you have anything to add.
Day 3 – Finding the Key to Your Creativity
Reflect on a challenge in life that makes you feel stuck. Choose something familiar that comes up every day. Write down this specific challenge, your usual response to it, and then describe how this response is keeping you stuck.
I’m bored a lot. I don’t get up and go to work everyday and most days I don’t even get dressed. I love being a mom but I don’t feel like it is a job or something that allows me to grow and feel rewarded.
My usual response is to just feel bored and be unproductive. This obviously keeps me stuck because I’m not doing anything to change the feeling. I’m just wallowing in it.
1) I think the first step is accepting that this is what I’m doing with my life right now but not forever. I made this choice to stay home with my kids and at any point I can change my mind and go in a different direction if I want to.
2) I need to find something to do within my home that makes me feel productive and that makes me feel like I’m contributing more to my family. Which I am currently working on but it’s a secret so I can’t tell 🙂
