Do you feel stuck? Maybe circumstances beyond your control have drastically altered your life. The people you work with are extremely difficult to deal with. Your spouse or child is having a crisis. You can’t lose those extra ten pounds. You find it hard to concentrate. You feel unloved. You’re not sure what you’re here for. You just don’t know what to do next.
We all get stuck. It happens in little ways and big ways. There is a way out. We just need to find it.
We get stuck because of fear, negative emotions, erroneous beliefs, our attempts to control what we can’t, and our lack of skills needed to be free. But the biggest reason? We won’t take the steps necessary. They all come down to one question: “So Now What?”
Progress in our lives depends on our physical, mental, and spiritual health. These three elements build on one another and support each other when any of them wavers. The answers to your relationship questions may rely on your physical health. The answers to your physical ailments may rely on your spiritual health. And the answers to your spiritual questions may rely on your mental health.
When you get unstuck, you will look better, feel better, and do better. You will have freedom. You will have love.
Catherine A. Brennan’s journey includes healing from a 35-year battle with depression after doctors, counselors, and the church failed her. Throughout her life, Cathy fought hard to keep her secret hidden, but she was weighed down by her unhealthy body, mind, and spirit.
Her tenacity caused her to keep asking, “So Now What?” until the myriad of answers came, many from unexpected places. Each of the healing professions had some of the answers, but until she took ownership of her illness and fought for her survival, she was stuck. Blame, frustration, and sadness kept her locked up until “So Now What?” became her friend.
After freeing herself from depression, Catherine found her inner athlete, running the Boston Marathon three times and participating in many half marathons and triathlons. She started a blog and speaking business focusing on the benefits of improving physical, mental, and spiritual health. She and her husband Mike have two married sons.
