WIC Week – South Atlantic Region Virtual Program – “So Now What? A Guide for People Who Feel Stuck”

Do you feel stuck? Maybe circumstances beyond your control have drastically altered your life. The people you work with are extremely difficult to deal with. Your spouse or child is having a crisis. You can’t lose those extra ten pounds. You find it hard to concentrate. You feel unloved. You’re not sure what you’re here for. You just don’t know what to do next. We all get stuck. It happens in little ways and big ways. There is a way out. We just need to find it. We get stuck because of fear, negative emotions, erroneous beliefs, our attempts to control what we can’t, and our lack of skills needed to be free. But the biggest reason? We won’t take the steps necessary. They all come down to one question: “So now what?” Progress in our lives depends on our physical, mental, and spiritual health. These three elements build on one another and support each other when any of them wavers. The answers to your relationship questions may rely on your physical health. The answers to your physical ailments may rely on your spiritual health. And the answers to your spiritual questions may rely on your mental health.

When you get unstuck, you will look better, feel better, and do better. Catherine A. Brennan is a business owner, author, public speaker, blogger, community activist, athlete, mother, grandmother, and most importantly, a depression survivor. She has lived in Minnesota most of her life and has run a construction and development company with her husband, Mike. Her background is in public accounting and she took the leap to start a construction business in 1994 and a development company in 2000. Cathy is a public speaker on the topic of wellness and has authored a book titled So Now What? A Guide for People Who Feel Stuck. It contains the lessons she learned from a very long battle with depression. The principles will be beneficial for anyone who feels stuck in their life. A companion workbook So Now What? A Guided Workbook to Get Unstuck is due out in April of 2021. In her 50’s, Cathy, found her “inner runner”. She has run the Boston Marathon three times, the New York City Marathon, and several other marathons. Cathy is also a triathlete, golfer, and avid reader. She and her husband have two married sons and one grandson.
