I remember feeling stuck.
There was a time, not so long ago, when my wife and I were always waiting for the other shoe to drop--the next bad thing to happen in our life.
So many bad things had been happening for so long (e.g. collapsed business, panic attacks, eviction notices, repo'd vehicle, utilities disconnected, bad health, overwhelming depression, aggressive lawsuits, loss of friends, death of close family, etc.), we felt stuck in a life we didn't know how to escape.
Maybe you've been there. Maybe you're there now.
Stuck is when disaster feels like it's inevitable; we just don't know exactly when it's going to happen, it's an endless loop of expecting the worst and getting what we were expecting.
My wife would tell me, "If we could just figure out ONE THING that works, we could work it for all it's worth and get out of this mess. We just need ONE THING that works."
When you're stuck, it's almost impossible to think...
