How to Get Unstuck: Come Back

The author, a woman with dark blonde hair and red lipstick, closes her eyes and wears a red winter knit cap with a label on the front that reads, “HELLO DOLLY! ISN’T THE WORLD FULL OF WONDERFUL THINGS?” as her gray cat, Polly the Demon Queen, sniffs her forehead.
One great way to return to the present moment? Focus on your pet/overlord.

Are you a time traveler? Me too. I can relive anything I remember, anytime I want. And do you visit other dimensions? Same here. We are human; we are creative; perhaps we even call ourselves artists. The trick is to not get stuck on these trips, to always return to reality so that we can do the work we are given to do in this lifetime.
