What to Do When The Way Through is Unclear

Last eve there was a new moon – hooray!  It’s that time of month where we are asked to start anew – I absolutely love the possibility of that.  Start fresh.  Try something new.  Be a better version of yourself.

Whatever you’ve been struggling with, whatever is getting you down, whatever habit you want to stop doing.  The universe hands you another chance to start fresh, to try again, whatever you like.

When a situation feels hopeless and it’s impossible to see the right way out of it, I’ve taken this on as my mantra: Just Do The Next Right Thing.

And it’s amazing!

It really helps me drill down on what exactly I can do in this moment.  It moves me away from drowning in the hopelessness of a complex problem or situation that has no obvious positive outcome.

And with my kids, when they are pressing my buttons and I’m tired and just have little patience – this thought comes to mind - 'Just Do The Next Right Thing' - and I take a deep breath and try and reset myself.

One small step in the right direction.

Easy does it.

Let go of the past, let go of the resentment, let go of the need to be certain of outcomes.  All of that.  Just Do The Next Right Thing.  And have faith you’re headed in the right direction.  Cause you are.

It feels like September has been a busy month and so full of ups and downs.  But this weekend, while the kids are at their dad’s, I’ve found I’ve had time to reset myself and rest up (cause sleep helps everything!!) and am feeling optimistic about October.

So here’s to new beginnings, and new months!  Let’s Go get ‘em :)

Lots of love,

Lisa Nicol
