Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Today’s encore episode is about why you need to get over feeling stuck in midlife. The interesting thing about feeling this way is that it is confusing. Many of us have never been stuck like this before.

It’s easy and common to look outside of yourself for the answers. It can even feel like your stuckness is out of control.

Feeling stuck is a choice.

It turns out that feeling stuck is actually a choice. Like everything in life, your feelings are created by your thoughts. Being stuck and feeling stuck are actually choices, even though it==they don’t really feel that way.

This isn’t the only confusing thing about feeling stuck. It’s also surprising to understand the impact of thinking about how what won’t happen as a result of you staying stuck can be even more compelling than the way you probably think about it now, which is more focused on yourself.  Lots of examples are shared to give this idea greater context and help you reframe your own thoughts of feeling stuck.

Enjoy this episode!
