Depends on what going on. Sometimes just a nap. Other times a friend. I'm one who needs to verbalize some things. I try not to dwell on it or let it consume me because there's other things to deal with. Then I get over it until I talk about it or think about it then it goes away again. Been through a lot and know it will pass one way or another. I try to keep the faith and everything always works out. Maybe not on your time or terms but it does.

I guess I'm not so sure what you mean by 'spinning your wheels'.
To me, that means trying to get somewhere and going no where FAST!

If that's what you mean, I don't really spin. My life is anchored around my Christian faith, so I know where I'm going (goals) and why and know that everything else is just 'clutter'.

It was pretty scary when my husband wasn't working due to back health issues. We didn't know if our predicament was a permanent thing or not. And we had no idea where our 'bacon' was going to come from.
I am the type of person who has learned that 'this too shall pass', so I had some faith in that....and in our most current situation, it DID pass! Seemed absolutely impossible while my husband lay bedridden for six months. But we are now doing well.
I also know that a new predicament can occur at any moment. That's where my Christian faith anchors me. I don't just HOPE I can get through it, "I know I can, I know I can!"

And we all lived happily ever after...


Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

I discuss it with my DH who has a sane outlook and is not emotional and that usually calms me down to face the problem.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I will go sit outside when it is warm. I might read or listen to music, or watch TV.

Thats Mutt job around here, and he is good at it. If there is something he considers dangerous, he sits down. In the woods I walk state or national parks. I know what is there. Except for Brazos Bend, deer, and small animals. Brazos Bend is the home of the alligator. Have to be a little more alert there.

Take a walk, preferably in the dark, or in the woods. I live in the country, no street lights. just peace and quite. Just let nature overwhelm me. After that I feel at peace and everything is OK. I feel renewed, energized and ready to go.

What do you do when you feel as though you're spinning your wheels in life?
