Just the idea of changing your life right now might seem crazy, overwhelming, and unmanageable. At this point changing your course, for better or worst, might bring about a lot of anxiety, so it’s important to remember NOT to panic. Everything is going to be ok.
This is the time to regain trust in ourselves, and our intuition. It’s time to address the fact and acknowledge that we indeed need a change and let it take the front seat.
For me, the book The Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo always manages to get me into that mindset. The story itself is short enough to read in a day and even easier to fit into your busy schedule as an audiobook. For me it isn’t anything about the story per-se, but it eases my anxieties and helps me remember that my search for personal fulfillment is valid.
It doesn’t matter what that is for you, it could be a movie, a friend’s words, a poem, a certain memory, anything. When you find that special something that puts you in the right head space to trust in yourself and your goals, bottle it up and keep it for later. You’ll need it. Come back to this every time you feel stuck. It will be your bridge back to the right path. Revisit it as needed and stay calm, everything is going to be ok.
