Sign #9: You keep thinking ‘There has to be more than this’ – a sense of longing or yearning for something more.
This has been my experience several times!
If you’re feeling like this and experiencing a persistent sense of longing or yearning for something more, take it as a clear sign that you may be ready for a change.
This feeling often comes about when you sense that your current circumstances or lifestyle are falling short of your hopes, dreams and aspirations.
It’s a call to explore new possibilities, expand your horizons, and seek out a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
Start by exploring the source of these feelings. Reflect on what aspects of your life are leaving you feeling unfulfilled or dissatisfied. Is it related to your career, relationships, personal growth, or a combination of factors? Dig deep and identify the specific areas where you sense a misalignment between your current reality and your desires.
Allow yourself to dream and envision the life you truly desire. What would bring you joy, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose? Embrace the belief that there is more out there for you and remind yourself that you have the capacity to create the life that you truly want.
I find it extremely helpful to steal a few hours for myself…just for thinking. It works best for me if I do my ‘thinking’ away from home or the office so that there are no distractions. For example, even if I have a few hours to myself at home, my handsome Chocolate Lab Mr. French seems to need to go out (and in, and out again) which can easily interrupt my thinking, dreaming, considering, etc.
Perhaps you could treat yourself to a night in a hotel, or rent a cabin at your favorite lake so that you give yourself the freedom and the environment you need to do some really good thinking about what would make your life absolutely awesome.
Journaling and/or meditation can also be helpful.
Embrace a growth mindset and be open to learning, evolving, and adapting along the way. Recognize that the journey of discovering “more” is ongoing and may involve taking risks or facing uncertainties. Trust in your own abilities and resilience to navigate the path ahead.
Remember, the yearning for something more is a powerful indicator that you are capable of growth, expansion, and creating a life that resonates with your true desires. Embrace the journey of self-discovery, pursue your passions, and remain open to the possibilities that lie beyond your current circumstances. The life that you want…the one that you dream of…is within your reach.
