The First Step in Transforming Frustration into Inspired, Fulfilling Action


Are you one of the many people who are feeling frustrated and discouraged with their love life?

Are you feeling discouraged about your life situation in general?

I’ll begin by sharing one of my favorite quotes:

“Healthy discontent is the prelude to progress.”

Mohandas K. Gandhi

So what is healthy about feeling discontented?

Feeling ‘discontentment’ means that powerful feelings are stirring in the depths of your conscious.

These feelings can give rise to the inspiration and motivation necessary for the inner transformation(s) that will help you to take your next steps.

Notice I that underlined the word can.

Feelings of ‘discontentment’ can only serve our growth if we make the time to be fully present with them.

So if you are feeling ‘discontented’ regarding your love life  and/or life in general I encourage you to do the following:

Rather than burying your feelings and frustrations with:

  • Work,
  • Compulsive eating,
  • Partying,
  • Buying things you don’t need,
  • Becoming self-absorbed in a ‘hobby’, and so on,

I invite you simply face and become fully present with your feelings.

Fully accepting where you are now and why is the first step on the path to a better tomorrow.

You don’t need to escape.  You can’t run from yourself.

Put another way:

Until a person:

  • Fully accepts their lives as they are now in the present.


  • Gives themselves full permission to experience their deepest feelings around where they are actually at in their lives, a different, more positive future will continue to evade them.

Some steps you can take today

  • Journal about your feelings of discontentment
  • Really ‘ham up your feelings’
  • Share your feelings of ‘discontentment’ with your best friend – just ask them to listen and to abstain from any giving advice
  • Before going off to dream land (before you go to sleep), ask the Spiritual world to help you to become more present with your feelings and to help you to fully accept and love yourself for the beautiful, magnificent person that you are.  I guarantee that the answer(s) will come… just keep asking.
  • Ask yourself:
    • Why am I feeling so ‘discontented’?
    • What is the universe trying to tell me about my life?
    • If I knew the reasons for my feelings of frustration, what would they be?
    • What opportunities are here for me now?
    • What next steps are here for me that I am not seeing?
    • Who won the world cup in 1986 –sorry this question was entered in error- those responsible have been sacked.

Remember, it took you your entire life to create the circumstances that you now experience daily.

Imagine that you are a large ship that needs to change course to avoid a nasty storm.

You have plenty of time to make the course correction; but you have to start by acknowledging and acting on your present situation.

Only you can change your experience.

Give yourself the loving gift of fully accepting every aspect of yourself.

Get up and look in the mirror.  Look deep into your eyes.  Be with what ever you see.  Love all that you see.

YOU are, and, always have been enough.  

If others have expressed “disappointment’” with you let that go and forgive them fully for not seeing you for the magnificent person that you are.

I sincerely hope that you found this post inspiring and useful.
