You’re Only Stuck If You Choose To Be Stuck
Elisabeth Tavierne

Elisabeth Tavierne is the founder of CHAARG [@CHAARG] -- a health + fitness community on 50+ college campuses and currently in the works of creating a post grad community. We liberate girls from the elliptical + show them that fitness can [+ should!] be fun by partnering with local fitness studios, as well as creating our own FitPlans [virtual workout programs]. Our mission is to empower every CHAARG girl to become the best version of herself. Oh, + we have a CHAARG Shop that’s pretty cool, too. ; )

Are you bored of your typical meals? Do you feel like your workout routine is in a slump? How are your relationships doing? Are you passionate about your career [or, if you are still in school, your classes]? Does your room/home fully express who you are? What has constantly been on your *to do list* [or dream/desire list] that you really want to do, but you just haven’t committed to yet?

What are you curious about — are you diving into those curiosities? Are you inspired by your morning routine? What about your evening routine? Who do you want to *be* this year — what are the steps you need to take to embody that quality?

I can go on + on, but the question I really want to ask you is:

Do you feel like your are thriving, or merely surviving, at this thing we call life?


You don’t need to feel on top of the world every day, but in general, do you feel like you are growing?  And maybe *growing* means peeling off the layers.

It’s natural to go through seasons of your life [I love the book — The Stuck Book: Pick This Up When You Don’t Know What To Do] — but if you constantly feel ~blah~ about an area of your life, or you are struggling with something + unsure of the next steps to take, it’s time to get unstuck!

One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received: Do the next right thing.

It’s easy to complicate our struggles + get very overwhelmed by them — but if you simply focus on the next right step, you are moving forward, + that’s growth. Maybe the next right step is reaching out to others + asking them to pray for you for discernment on what the next right step is to take.

You have more support than you know. While the internet can be frustrating, it’s also an incredible tool to ask questions + get inspiration on areas you feel stuck on. if you need someone to talk to,  know that there’s a massive CHAARG community always willing to lend a hand. I’m also here to give you advice + I will try my best to point you to resources that might get you unstuck. Send me your questions here!

Rooting for you always,
