Chronically Confounded

I have spent most of my conscious adult life wondering what to do, what I should have done, what my next step should be, why I am not richer, skinnier, smarter, happier, and stronger, and if I can ever get better, do better, or stay better, ad infinitum.

It’s like I have my own personal, diabolically magnetic hamster wheel that is inescapable and hypnotic…unless…I just…stop and get off.

Every day.

Escaping the pull of the wheel (for me) works like this:

  1. Oops, I’m on the wheel again. Gee, how did I get here?
  2. Oh, now I remember. Step off quickly. It never gets me anywhere.
  3. Meditate. Saturate my mind with what does work:
    • Gratitude
    • Affirming my worth
    • Bite-size action steps
    • Modeling the bravery of my heroes

  1. I love the analogy you use regarding the hamster wheel. Like you infer, it takes you nowhere and just leaves you in that vicious circle!

  2. Thank you for taking the time to show agreement! Here’s to getting off the wheel!
