Common Thread: Time For A Change

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the same theme or topic seems to repeatedly come up in random places or between disassociated groups of people? They don’t “seem” connected, but somehow they are. In the last couple of weeks, I’ve had four different people tell me the exact same thing…and it happens to be the very thing that I am personally perplexed about.

All four people said these exact words: “I don’t want to keep doing what I’m doing anymore,” referring to the type of work the person is doing, “but I don’t know what I want to do.” “Maybe something completely different.” There seems to be a general dissatisfaction with the type of work they are doing. Yet, there is a desire to explore something new, something with more meaning.

The great thing is that every one of these people, and myself included, are not overly worried about it. They just simply acknowledge that they are ready for a change, state that they don’t yet know what the change will be, but somehow trust that they will figure it out. Personally, it’s not until recently that I have achieved this often difficult level of contentedness, faith, and fearlessness of the unknown. I am beginning to slowly realize that you have to let go and be completely open in order for something new to come it.

Maybe it’s the season. Fall is a time for releasing the past and letting in the new. I wonder what would happen if everyone had the courage to pursue a path that contributes to the betterment of society and the planet as a whole rather than the so-called “economies” and industry? What if this were redefined, and the profit of human kind was the new bottom line?

I do believe in one thing though, and that is we all have a unique contribution to make. And sometimes we may not know what that is until we have the gift of hindsight. If we can trust in the fact that no matter what we do there is a red thread, and that as long as we follow our instincts, listen to that inner voice that says, “it’s time for something new,” and are true to ourselves, that the reward will be far greater than any paycheck. The key is to actually have the courage to do it — to take the risk to find the greatest wealth there is: health, peace, happiness and contentment.

I’ll end this with a short video someone once shared with me about the idea of a red thread. It illustrates how following your dreams pays off even in light of uncertainties along the way.
