Stuck in Reverse...

Lately, I have been feeling like I am stuck in reverse.  It's hard to explain but I feel like I'm going backwards.  I used to be so positive and motivating and lately, I have been letting the weight of the world bring me down.  I don't like it.  I don't like it at all.

So, I was listening to a little Coldplay last night and the song "Fix You" resonated with me.  These lyrics specifically...

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse...

I am a big music lover and I have a habit deciphering lyrics in a "deep thoughts" kinda way. Sometimes the lyrics speak louder than artists performing them live in concert, as did these.

The question is why?  Why do I feel like that and what can 'fix me'?  The ending of the song says the 'lights will guide you home...' so I'm looking for the positive light and I believe that starts with counting my many blessings.

Stay positive,


  1. I know how you feel - I often feel stagnant because I'm waiting for my husband to finish school, or waiting for the right opportunity to present, or waiting for the right time to start a family etc. etc. etc. etc. I've decided to stop waiting and start doing. Maybe that will help :)
