In our therapy clinic people often come in asking for help in getting out of old feelings they are stuck in. I tell them that the work ahead may be challenging and complex, but the basic map is simple. Change requires action.
In my own journey I have learned this “inconvenient truth”: Old behaviors bring old feelings. New behaviors bring new feelings. If I want to feel differently I need to behave differently. This may sound easy but it can be tremendously difficult. Most of us tend to want our feelings to change without us having to actually change as well. But it doesn’t work that way.
Happily, just a simple step in the right direction often leads to a luscious leap. It is time to dance your life!!!!!
