There are several ways to get where you want to go. Many of them are impossible for you to imagine because Divine orchestration can intervene in any way at any time.
However, there will be periods when you feel like your back is up against the wall. You may feel panicked by the sense of restriction. Rather than succumb to the fear or start blaming yourself for not having acted sooner, reframe the tension.
Your choices “drying up” may just be the Universe helping to coral you in a particular direction. You still have a choice to accept it or not. Breathe through it and remember that what feels confining is really just encouraging focus.
