That pause may be a day, a week, a year. No one knows how long a pause should be. For me, it's been months. Life has given me a mandatory pause. And for someone who has gotten used to a fast paced life, for someone who usually gets things to work her way at her pace, being forced to pause is an excruciating pain, I feel stuck.
For months I've asked myself, why are things not moving. As far as I know I've done everything I could, but still nothing happens, nothing changes. All I know is that maybe, most likely, there is still something that I'm not doing. Maybe it's one single thing, maybe it's a few more, I just have to find out.
If giving your best is not enough, if you've done everything to no avail, then there's a big chance that it's either not the right time - or simply just not meant to be.
