Ever felt that nudge when you know something is off. That nudge that just won’t go away. We ignore it. Distract it. Do everything we can to procrastinate or avoid that funny feeling that we get. The feeling that only you can identify.
Yes we have all been there. It might be that change in our career, relationship, finances and more. Knowing when it’s time to make that move–to do something different. It’s important to do it and not wait until your circumstances get drastic and the change is forced upon you as can happen when we are forced out of a job.
The Daily Positive shared the 6 Signs For You To Change Direction. Check out the YouTube video or take a look at the list as it is captured and shared here.

Just because you’re Good at something doesn’t mean you have to do it forever.Emily P. Freeman
So many of us get up each day and do the things we are good at even though we are miserable and no longer enjoy what we are doing.
Why not Try something new today? Maybe you will have to learn it. Maybe it will challenge you. But in learning something different you get that thrill, that drive that stimulates. Who knows… your passion may take a turn for the better and drive you to new heights of joy as your life unfolds differently
Something to think about.
Corona Air Travel to a place I have never been.
6 Feet apart on the ground.
Masks, face covering and all as orders came for businesses to reopen
Next day mandatory
Embarked on flight observing the usual.
Full flight. Clumped together
White paper bags distributed on entry with tiny pack of cookies and bottled water.
The usual. No changes there
I can see the signs
Less crew to come.
With safe distancing, there’s nothing they need to do besides the initial guidance in preparation for take off
And even then, that’s automated
Three hours later, the friendship State I arrived.
Big airport. Masks everywhere
Until I get to my mountainous destination
Scanty. A few masked ones. The rest on their own.
Free to wander. Free to decide.
Spread the germs
Get the germs
Will it ever end?
Second leg. Flight empty except for a few dozen passengers
I arrive at my seat.
Backpack in hand and rollercase
I was assigned to sit next to another passenger
I looked around. Why?
The flights empty for crying out loud!
Lovely lady. Kind. Helped me get ‘settled’ into my window seat
Except…. there’s no window.
Oh that’s weird.
A window seat with no window, hmm
Of course I couldn’t settle
One of my pastimes while traveling is to stare out the window
I read. I write. I plan. I stare. Eyes fixed until the earth beneath disappears behind the clouds
Then I gaze at the morning’s sunrise, midday sun or evening sunset
At nights I just stare at the lights until they are gone
Then I zoom into the plane’s flicker against the night sky.
But then back to my story.
My kind neighbor who looks like a mayor’s wife who bakes cookies and welcomes all at Christmastime agree that I can make haste to the window behind.
No flight attendant in sight. I settle in.
Flight ready for takeoff they asked me to elevate the seat back
The sure demise of a previous passenger
I wiped the place clean … well as clean as I could without looking like a germaphobe
Look around at a passenger dressed in spacesuit
Extra precaution I’d say
Hungry …. had not eaten from morning and airport snack counters closed for obvious reason
I slaughtered a pack of biscuits brought from home
I usually sleep during take off but was too ravished to nap.
I dived in and ate and ate until the pack of biscuits disappeared
Now I await the 3 hour flight to a place I’ve never been
Years ago I stepped out of my comfort zone. Having not been in the job market for a long time I began my search for a new and meaningful opportunity. With great elation a dream company reached out to me. It was always a goal to work with them. It had great salary, great benefits, and most important – meaningful work. But I would have had to relocate. No problem for me as I didn’t have a chick nor child (as the saying goes…hint kid in college). I could hardly wait to get started.
A senior level position, I had to go through a 5-level-interview process with different senior level teams. Nailed the toughest two. Then the onto the third. Nailed it! Or so I thought. The interviewer thought otherwise. They replied thanking me for my time but they decided to move on. This after being interviewed for almost a…

It’s what you do, not when you do it that counts
Often many as they age feel afraid that they have not accomplished their purpose and plans for their life. Here are seven examples of people who achieved success at different ages:
So there is hope. If you have a dream, go get it.
Writers desired escape seems far fetched. The longing to get away to a quiet place to write. It seems the more the writer seeks the faster it disappears. Yes that quiet space to retreat.
Take a peek and share your own fav.
Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.
Tough times don’t last. Tough People do.
