What do you do when you begin to realise that all your years of training, development and climbing the ladder of professional work suddenly begin to feel sabotaged by thoughts of another possibility? You experience a creeping towards a divergent direction. You were certain of your aspirations, and your ironclad goals were getting closer. Without warning and unbidden, you see a picture ahead of an undisclosed outcome. Your mind feels uncertain. Confusion steps in. You see how far you have come but a cross road is developing in front of you, unwanted and not in the original plan.
This call from your heart and your gut, along with a sense of impending change is strong. Something else begins to sing to you and there is a flutter of excitement deep inside. A fire begins to build that darn it, just won’t be subdued. There is no doubt the world and its parameters are mid-change. Our communities and tribes, whether social or work based seek connection and caring. There are a range of better ways to approach things in order to improve loving outcomes in our work. Individuals who follow their natural intuitive calling are those who make way for creative outcomes and improved changes. Embracing your unique self could result in wonderful life changing conclusions. Will you follow this Call?
In my case, the world of nursing decided upon as a seven year old from a hospital bed post tonsillectomy was set in concrete and my future was set. I loved and lived it to the fullest with everything I had within me. Yet years later and despite having obtained multiple pieces of paper, I was restless. A dis-satisfaction slowly created itself within me, subtle and irritating. Change was coming and I felt it with a sense of knowing. When a series of heart stopping and life changing events hit me hard, it was inevitable that I had changed at deep levels, taking me into a world with different perspectives.
My new desire to impact the world with positivity became an opportunity that led me into a vastly different space which now brings me joy, satisfaction and abundance. I begin to see the purpose in these changes and the importance of the call to arms. I see the rise of the world’s frequency towards a more loving, warmer and caring growth. Our working environments are exploring a better and healthier method of leading their way into future change for the betterment of mankind. If you are niggled by the voice inside your being, the desire to walk another road and a sense of purpose that will take you elsewhere, consider the thought that there is much you could wind up doing to care for the world. Perhaps you discover your method of making the world shine more and produce a happier community. We all have unique and precious work to do. Allow yourself to get out of your own way and instead follow your heart. It will be worth it.
