Talk to anyone with a job these days, and you’ll hear plenty of stories about people quitting…

It seems as though the entire Nation is “divinely discontent”….and many of us are desperate for change.
What is “Divine Discontent?”
I hear it all the time:
👉 “I’m good at my job, but it longer brings me joy.”
👉 “Something is missing.”
👉 “I want to make a bigger impact.”
👉 “I’m ready to make a change, but I don’t know where to begin.”This is “divine discontent” – and even though it may only feel like a whisper or a gentle tug at your heart….it’s a message I encourage you to definitely pay attention to.
These are your dreams, and your PURPOSE, calling you – and I’d hate for you to go your entire life, ignoring who you truly are.
Divine discontent often comes in the form of a job change. But it can also impact your hobbies, your physical fitness, your emotional well-being, and your relationships.
How do I start taking inspired action?
Maybe you feel as if “change” is on the horizon..but you’re not exactly sure how to take inspired action. Maybe you feel selfish or guilty for wanting to “follow your dreams” and you keep stuffing down the idea that you’re unhappy.
Journal prompts for finding clarity
Below are some journal prompts for connecting with your intuition and taking inspired action. As you answer these questions, be honest with yourself, and try not to judge what comes through.
- Describe what your inner knowing is telling you about your life right now. Are there any next steps you feel you should take? How does it feel when you think about taking these steps?
- If you could take a single small step this week that leads you closer to your dreams, what would that step look like? What is your intuition telling you?
- Fear is a normal experience when you take a leap and follow your inner knowing. Write at least ten affirmations about your strength, power, and courage. Feel the fear, and trust that you can move forward anyway.
