So as not to complicate the idea, I thought my 'un' word should compliment 'overcome.' I thought about envy, jealousy, over-consumption, wanting, malcontent, but these didn't seem to compliment the idea of overcoming difficulties. Those are all feelings and ideas that I'd like to improve upon but it just felt too complicated. Finally, I landed on STUCK.
Over the past few years I've felt stuck. Stuck in jobs I didn't really enjoy but wasn't able to leave yet. Stuck in our house in the burbs. Stuck with too much debt. But I am not stuck. We are not stuck in our house, we are choosing to stay a little while longer. We are perhasps limited by our debts, but we are not stuck.
In 2014, I have made the resolution to overcome my feelings of stuckness.
