I’ve had an odd year so far and I experienced some change at the beginning of the year that shook me but looking back, it’s been an absolute BLESSING. It got me thinking on how far I’ve come and how far I’ve got to go but also reminded me that change is good, it’s for the best and you only realise you need change (send coins my way please) when you stop and reflect. Here are four signs you need change…
If you’re not enjoying it, it’s a sign you need to re-assess what you’re doing, your relationship or your surroundings. There is no anchor holding you down to one thing forever, so spread your wings and simply GO FOR IT.
Making a list of pros and cons is a sure-fire way to get out of that ‘funk’ whilst looking to the future and envisioning yourself where you want to be or who you want to be with.
You feel numb
Have you ever had that feeling where you feel like nothing affects you?
You know, getting a catty e-mail from your most despised colleague and not even batting an eyelid like you usually do. This is a definite sign you need a change. One of the best ways to gain perspective is to travel, put yourself into new surrounds for a long weekend or a week if your budget allows. This will give you time to think, gain perspective and hopefully come home with a renewed sense of hope to change you or the things around you.
I went to Cornwall earlier this year and it was a great place to reflect and think…
Yearning for more
I blame social media for this particular sign. I always found myself scrolling through Instagram wondering why I don’t have this or that or look a certain way. Frankly, when I closed the app I didn’t care anymore, instead these days I use it for memes and posting snippets of my life cos no one wants to see my breakfast (cos I don’t eat it). What I’m really getting at is that sometimes you think you’re doing okay, somewhat content, but there’s this niggling feeling in your head that you need more… Whatever it may be, here is…
How to reach the next step
Reflect on how your life got to this point. The only way to look forward is to look back and to:
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
