Stop, look, listen. You may be "chasing a song" yet already have the song “bird in the hand”. Are you missing the opportunity to tweak what you already have by shifting your perspective of it? I encourage you ... by all means, don't throw that bird out the window!
Change your outlook ... turn 5, 10 or 15 degrees to the left or right to see things anew. Look up; look down. How can you see that work situation in a new way that will bring you more joy? What are you grateful for there? Is there something you love to do that you can explore in the off-work hours that will help nourish your passions? Perhaps as you put your focus on and explore these off-hours activities, that next career door is going to present itself. Perhaps you never even realized that you are putting too much focus and energy into working!
If your conflict is in a relationship, how can you shift your outlook there? Many times both partners crave a deeper level of intimacy, but have shut themselves off from giving and receiving it. This is self sabotage. Look for ways you may be pushing the other away when you are truly desiring a deeper connection.
If things are rocky with our partner, do we just say we're not happy and leave? If we are not challenged at work, do we just quit? Some do ... but what if we and our perceptions are at the center of our lack of happiness? What if we are being guided to just LOOK in a different direction? There is always a perspective of lack/fear and a perspective of gratitude/love. The choice is yours!
Going to a space of anxiety, worry, uncertainty, etc. may have become habitual, but it is not a fun place to live. Ultimately it will not lead us more quickly to that thing we are seeking. Within you is the power of happiness, joy, Presence! Whenever you can shift the way you see something that you keep struggling against and accept it ("I accept what IS"), you've become the Master. You see, when your happiness is not contingent on others' actions or specific conditions, happiness is always within reach! If you are constantly waiting for that special moment, that special work situation, you may be missing the things to relish right here and now. Where are you looking? Where are you living? Are you in the present?
Stop, look, listen. What if this apparent stall in your career is ultimately for your good? What if the path you are having a hard time finding is ultimately not right for you? What if this is a necessary ebb in your path ... time needed for future doorways to align and appear?
I believe if your path were ready or if it were best, the direction of where to go next would be clear. You may benefit from reading "Trusting the Ebb and Flow of Life. Trust that in the times of ebb, you are still receiving. Be open, present, grateful. The ebb also provides a time for reflection ... a time for being present and appreciating and living right here and now.
Are you chasing something which may not ultimately increase your happiness? Will bigger, better, more really bring you happiness? Are you not fully engaged, so you are getting non-engagement in response? Perhaps it's best to tweak your perspective of and engagement with your current situation. What opportunities for joy and happiness are you not seeing, yet they are right there in your hand?
What if this shift within yourself ultimately shifts everything outside of you, as well? I can say with certainty, it will!
