Sometimes even if we get everything we want in life, we find out that it isn't what we want. Sometimes that great job isn't so great. That big house is so big that we feel isolated inside of it. Maybe that coveted lifestyle can only be maintained at the expense of dealing with too many responsibilities and pressures. Then comes that nagging feeling inside. Years can go by and yet that feeling doesn't really go away no matter how hard we try.
When this happens, it's not as if anything is wrong with us. It's also not as if anything is inherently wrong with the lifestyle, itself. But when we allow that internal voice of intuition to drown out all of those external voices of conventional wisdom and normalcy, some of us simply reach the point at which the only solution is to change. Sometimes that change is drastic. Sometimes not so much.
But when we listen to that internal voice, we say "yes" to things like travel or to adventure. We may start a new hobby or become more creative in some way. We may change cities or change countries. We may leave a job or negotiate a work situation that is more tolerable. We may say "yes" to a new friendship, yes to love, or we may walk away from relationships that aren't working.
Today, Sofia and I interview a guest who will talk about some of this as she shares her fascinating life story. Read more about our guest, Patti McCracken.
