What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do

Since I created the Be a Leading Lady website and facebook page, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many wonderful, leading ladies. I’ve noticed some going through tough times. And I just want to say to you that this does not in any way, shape, or form diminish who you are as a leading lady. We all go through these times. I’ve been through them and am currently in a very difficult situation. We all go through these times.

What matters most is how we choose to go through it.

Sometimes we are overwhelmed with the problems in our lives. It may not feel like it will ever be different. It may be more than we even know how to handle at this present moment, but we will. We will figure it out.

Start where you are. If you need to write a sticky note and keep it in front of you, just reminding you to breathe, do it. I’ve done that. It helped. We can quickly begin to spiral when we focus on our problems or a difficult situation.

Another good reminder to write for yourself is to take one day at a time. We can easily start to feel overwhelmed by a future that feels over or out of control. This one moment is all you have to deal with this very second.

Remember, sometimes we just have to start where we are. The fog will begin to clear, and you will see the next step.

This is just one chapter in our life story. This is just simply where we start writing a new chapter. – Topaz

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start. -Nido Qubein

And the most important thing to remember…

God’s got this.

Don’t worry. It’s going to be okay. The same God who parted the red sea, turned water into wine, and who walked on the water…He’s got this.

  1. A friend introduced me to your website, it has been exactly what I needed to get me up off the ground after a divorce and a broken relationship. I’m striving to be a leading lady and be a positive role model for my children. I’m back in school chasing a new dream and I’m making great strides in becoming the woman I know I am.
    Thanks and keep the posts coming.

    • Good for you, Cheryl! I’m so proud of the way you are seeking to be a good role model for your children, even in the face of a difficult situation and love the way you are focusing on a new dream! Best of luck to you, although it sounds like you are going to be just fine.

  2. You are such an encouragement to me! I am so glad I came and read here again tonight! I really needed this and I love your statement – “This is just one chapter in our life story. This is just simply where we start writing a new chapter.”

  3. Hi Rhonda! It’s good to see you! So glad that you were encouraged by this. That means so much to me. Thank you for your kind words!
