Feeling Stuck?

An excerpt from The Red Chair Experience.

 

“Whenever I get stuck on something, I’m like, ‘What would I do if I wasn’t afraid? What would I write if I wasn’t afraid? What would I say in this situation if I wasn’t afraid?’” – Phoebe Waller-Bridge

 

Sometimes we can get stuck in life or on a project at work and we cannot seem to find the solution. Sometimes it is fear that holds us in place and other times it is something much bigger saying hold on.

Are You Open to Experiences

An excerpt from The Red Chair Experience...

“The good part about getting older is you stop trying to prove anything to anyone, including yourself. All you are in the pursuit of is collecting experiences - beautiful, fragile little soap bubbles that you store in your heart, and every once in a while, you pull one out and gaze at the delicate pictures it shows you.”Twinkle Khanna

I am not sure the thing that taught me to be open to experiences and take chances, but it seems to always have been a part of my life.

Affirmations in Your Life

“I’m an artist; affirmation is like catnip to me.” – Andrea Riseborough

Are you someone that feels the tug and need for affirmation? I am that type of person. I can be left to do a job and when I am finished it is not enough for me to know that I have done a good job. I like to hear that other people think I did a good job as well. Once I hear that I can move on but if I do not hear that I start to wonder if they think I am doing a decent job.

Delayed Dreams – an excerpt from The Red Chair Experience

“You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.” - Meredith Willson

You have the opportunity sitting right in front of you and you are afraid to make a mistake or step off the proverbial ledge. What are you waiting for? Maybe you’ve been hurt or burned in the past and now you do not want that to happen again. You were down for the count way too long and you cannot afford to make the same mistake. Maybe you learned what you needed to last time. Maybe you tried to take that step and you were spared from a whole lot more than just some character building on your part.
