M.O.V.E is my acronym I use with myself and teach others to use, when I/they get stuck in life.
I have been stuck in big ways and little ways in my life. In 2001, when my husband of 20 years left me for a much younger woman, I was majorly stuck.
As I was creating this acronym, I remembered vividly what it was like to be majorly stuck every day, every minute, every second of my existence. The despair I lived within was so painful, my thoughts kept going to how much easier it would be if I were not here, if I were dead.
I never thought about killing myself, but I prayed daily for God to send someone to kill me, so I wouldn’t need to feel this intense pain.
What I received instead was God sending someone who would help me, either in person, just showing up at my door, or a call from someone, within 30 minutes of my screaming out in pain.
My faith increased as God continued to send someone to help me. Many, many times it was my angel here on earth, my friend Wendy.
I found what helped me greatly during these deep stuck times, and now when I’m stuck in lesser ways, is to get into some kind of movement. Physical movement.
What I find and found back in the times when I was very, very stuck, is getting outside into nature for a walk, doing jumping jacks, or going to the health club, would change my energy. It raised the vibration of where I was at, to a higher level, where I didn’t feel so much of the pain and despair.
So the “M” of M.O.V.E, is movement, of whatever kind you can muster up at the time. Get into action of some sort.
As my time went on, I found as I could keep moving, put one foot in front of the other, and consistently do something physical, I began to change.
It didn’t happen all at once.
I was really beginning to trust that God had other things for me to do, for me to get out and be around people and to give some of my gifts to them.
The O of M.O.V.E. is about taking ownership for yourself and what is going on. Stop blaming!
The V of M.O.V.E. is verbalize. Find someone to talk with that is safe and supports you. Stop holding it all inside!
The E of M.O.V.E. is expand yourself spiritually and inter-personally.
So, I ask you, do you get stuck? “Little or Big” stuck happens because we are here on earth as human beings.
