Now and again, we all get this overwhelming feeling to go through some drastic change. Whether it be related to career, style, friends, significant others, or location, we all can equally identify with this unknown compelling force. That hides beneath the surface of us all waiting for the perfect moment to pounce and conducts a complete 360 change on our lives. When you're in the thick of this do it now mind frame. It can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. We are no strangers to wanting to pack up the car and move six states away. Since we know, we are not the only ones who battle with the crave for change we thought a perfect post to share with you would be the questions we ask ourselves when the desire for change seems almost all too powerful and alluring.
Is there anyone influencing your decision?
Loved ones are a real asset to have in life, but sometimes the lines of what they want and what you want can be blurred. It is especially hard to know if someone is in your ear about a decision if they are someone you genuinely trust for support and guidance. However, if you feel like you are craving a significant life change, I would encourage you to take some time out to be completely alone to think through your thoughts and feelings without others interjecting theirs into the conversation.
Are you happy?
At the end of the day, it is you and you alone who has to live with your life decisions, which is why it is so incredibly essential to place as much focus on your overall happiness as possible.
In this moment in time, is this what you want for you?
Any way you toss it, slice it or turn it, life is complicated. At points in your life, you'll find that no matter how much you want something or how much you cave for it to be your new reality because of the thickness that is life. Somethings have to wait for their turn. As much as it sucks to say, I encourage you to think about if desired your change is as beneficial to your life as you so want it to be.
Could this be a pattern for you?
We all have patterns that we fall victim to time and time again. We may not see it, but I'm sure if you sit down for a heart to heart with your loved ones, they will happily explain to you the patterns that you can't seem to escape. It could be that you are not seeking a change you might only be running from something. Address it now or address it later, but keep in mind running no matter the distance or duration is going to take a toll on you mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Could my crave for change be a reaction to something bigger?
We are all human, which means significant events are happening in our lives whether we want them or and whether we fully notice them or not; it is only natural to want to change things up when there is a significant life shift happening. Take into consideration if this change will only help you at the moment or if this change has the power to be an asset to your life as a whole.
Could boredom be a persuasive suspect?
We all crave adventure when the tides are calm. While a few days away on some crazy expedition might be in order. Think about if you need a life change or just a life break.
From time to time, each one of us reaches a point where we want to toss our current life out the window and start a new. On the occasion that is the right move for you, then get it, girl. You deserve the life that you dream. Although for the most part, a deep craving for change might be the accomplice to something else. Leave regret outside and ask yourself these question to get you thinking if this 360 change is one for you.
