This month of March, I will be breaking it down each week to talk about each of the letters and what they mean, and how you can use this helpful tool, to help you when you are stuck.
I have been stuck in big ways and little ways in my life. Ten and Eleven years ago, when my husband of 20 years left me for a much younger woman, I was majorly stuck!
As I was creating this acronym, I remembered vividly what it was like to be majorly stuck every day, every minute, every second of my existence. The despair I lived within was so painful, my thoughts kept going to how much easier it would be if I were not here, if I were dead.
I never thought about killing myself, but I prayed daily for God to send someone to kill me, so I wouldn’t need to feel this intense pain.
What I received instead was God sending someone who would help me, either in person, just showing up at my door, or a call from someone, within 30 minutes of my screaming out in pain.
My faith increased as God continued to send someone to help me. Many, many times it was my angel here on earth, my friend Wendy.
I found what helped me greatly during these deep stuck times, and now when I’m stuck in lesser ways, is to get into some kind of movement. Physical movement.
What I find and found back in the times when I was very, very stuck, is getting outside into nature for a walk, doing jumping jacks, or going to the health club, would change my energy. It raised the vibration of where I was at, to a higher level, where I didn’t feel so much of the pain and despair.
So the “M” of M.O.V.E, is movement, of whatever kind you can muster up at the time. Get into action of some sort.
As my time went on 10-11 years ago, I found as I could keep moving, put one foot in front of the other, and consistantly do something physical, I began to change.
It didn’t happen all at once. I remember being at the healthclub and stretching out on the mats after a workout, with tears rolling down my face. I still felt the pain, hurt and intense sadness as my life had changed so fast, and I didn’t know where I was going.
I was really beginning to trust that God had other things for me to do, for me to get out and be around people and to give some of my gifts to them.
Now 11 1/2 years later, I am an Amazon Best Selling ( in 10 categories!) co-author in a book, Succeeding In Spite Of Everything, I am a certified Dream Coach, I have my own anti-aging business I’m building, partnering with Nu Skin Enterprises, I am continually taking classes to grow me, to become the best Connie I was meant to be, I live in joy more moments than I ever thought I would, and I appreciate so much, as I look around myself everyday!
So, I ask you, do you get stuck? “Little or Big” stuck happens beacuse we are here on earth as human beings.
Here is my M.O.V.E video to watch ( 9 minutes long), so you can hear all of the 4 ways to get unstuck and live the life you love!
I will be sharing and expanding on the other parts of M.O.V.E. each week in March, as well as guests articles to enhance my posts, from another perspective.
