Helpless is a State of Mind

Feeling helpless sucks! But is anyone ever really, truly helpless? Helplessness is a perception, a choice to see it that way rather than allowing comfort in things or from others to aid you in getting back up and trying again. Choosing to feel a certain way isn’t always a conscious decision. This feeling can be hard to avoid if you are in a downslide or have lost sight of the goal you had been working towards. The good news is you can overcome this feeling with little work on your part.

You always, and I mean ALWAYS, have control over your situations. Finding different ways to perceive what happens is your way out of feeling defeated. I remind myself often that I can’t control other people’s actions or reactions, however, I always have control of the way I act or react.


Jennifer Adams, Tune In To LifeAbout Jennifer Adams:
Heal, fuel, feed, repeat… Here I am taking the journey from corporate life to purpose life. I have climbed the ladder of life in parenting, work and self-development. What once was a woman who lived the “should” life, I became inspired to live the purposeful life. Always finding myself being the one people called for help or answers, I decided to pursue it further. With a suitcase of wisdom and carry-on of wit, I am traveling to the land of passion. I rock at bringing out the inner awesome in others. It was always there in various stages and capacities but I pushed it aside to do what I was “supposed” to do. The gates have opened and I am off…to chase the dream of breaking down the walls and limiting beliefs that keep others from truly showing up for this thing called life.

A little background about me:
From single mom at 18 to Vice President of a Corporation at 38, I spent 20 years healing, fueling, and feeding. I dropped out of high school 2 months before graduation, pregnant, and got my GED. I went to work full time at various jobs always working to make ends meet. I have what I like to call a “Custom College Degree.” I took more classes than what it took to get a degree, just not in the traditional curriculum determined by the schools. I have accounting, business and information technology education that I needed to get the job done, do it well and move up. It worked! I am now married with two awesome kids and I have no regrets. I love working out and living a healthy life style. My dream is to have a log house on the water with tons of property for flowers, vegetables and English Bulldogs and you know what, I WILL have it!

Stay Tuned….
