"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Harold Whitman
I love the quote above from Harold Whitman about asking yourself what makes you come alive. Pause for a moment to think about what makes you come alive. Is that 'something' present in your life or is it still just a dream? (My dream is to develop a self-supporting household. )
Last month I wrote of managing concerns when a dream or goal isn't showing up fast enough. When on the journey toward making dreams a reality, its delay in manifesting can cause feelings of discontent. The point I would like to make here is that feelings of discontent, though uncomfortable, do not have to be a negative thing. Discontent can be the flag that signals your current circumstances are less than ideal; that you are dissatisfied with your present circumstances, and wish for something to change.
