How to Navigate Life
When you’re little, the rest of your life feels so far away that it’s impossible to imagine how it will look. You might have hopes and dreams, but there’s so much to come before the rest of your life becomes a reality that it’s never set in stone.
Usually your path begins to take shape after you’ve found the career you want or even the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. But even when this happens, there might be something holding you back from taking that big leap and achieving your dreams. If this sounds at all familiar, here are some signs you should look out for.
You Imagine a Future of Us, Not Just You
Everyone imagines finding their soulmate when they are young, and while some people have high school sweethearts, the majority won’t find True Love until much, much later.
Once you do, though, you’ll realize that it’s time to take the next step at some point. It’s natural to be cautious at first, but there will come a time where, rather than thinking of the future of you, it’s the future of us.
This is typically the time where you will start searching for engagement rings she’ll never say no to or dreaming about kids’ names. It’s talking about searching for a place of your own. If this sounds at all familiar, then the next stage in your relationship, and your life, might not be too far away! Listen to your gut. 🙂
You Feel Like You’re Spinning Your Career Wheels
If you’ve been in a career that feels stagnant, this is another sign that it’s time for you to embrace the potential that the rest of your life can offer.
Most people don’t end up in the dream job they envisioned as children. Whether it’s by necessity or circumstance, they find themselves at a desk doing something. There will be people who accept this. They don’t mind, as long as they can have fun and live out of work. This is definitely not me. My work IS my life.
If you are like this as well, don’t settle! I mean, why not chase a dream? Whether you are financially secure and have everything else in life neatly organized in rows or not, maybe what you need is to take a leap of faith.
You Are Feeling Good About the World
Childhood is filled with optimism about the world, but as you get older, the mask of society slips, and you see everything for what it truly is. Despite this, there’s still a lot of good to find. Whether you realize you want to give more back to the community or see as much of the planet as you can, feeling good about the world proves the time is right. Get out there and make your mark!
Get Ready for More
No one ever feels ready for more, but if you don’t dive into change, then what are you doing? We only live once! Only you can know you’re ready for the rest of your life, but I say.. ‘what are you waiting for?!’ No time like the present. 🙂
