Common enough question.  What do I do?  And my answer is usually, “What do you want to do?”.  Which is not what people want to hear.  People asking that question want someone else to be in charge.  They want someone else to be responsible.  Usually they are in some kind of emotional crisis.  And this is the hardest thing to hear.  No one can tell you what to do.

Ok, so I don’t mean, if you were taken hostage you wouldn’t be pushed around or treated badly.  Let’s set aside war, terrorism and violence for a second as that is an entirely different discussion.  I mean right now in your life (where you are not a hostage, a victim of violent abuse, or in a war zone) no one can tell you what to do.  No one but you and Spirit know what is best for you and what you could do next.  There might not even be a ‘should’ in there.  There might just be ‘could’.  I could do this or this or this or this….. So what do I do.

Well, what do you want to do?  You know you are in a place or situation you don’t want to be in.  You are an amazing individual with all kinds of gifts and abilities and you have opportunities in all directions.  I would look at those opportunities like a deck of cards.  Shuffle them together.  Lay them out so you can look at them all at the same time.  1. getting a different job  2. going to school  3.  moving to a different neighborhood/town  4. leaving a relationship 5. getting a relationship  6. joining a group  7. meeting new people  8. trying something I’ve never done before. 9……

Which one seems the brightest and the best to you, not because you’re afraid, but because you want it.  Not because you need the money or you don’t have any other options, but because you want it.  Allow yourself to want something. Then take a step towards it.
