Feeling Restless.

I’m not sure why but I’m feeling very restless. Not in the sense that I can’t sleep but that I’m bored. I’m bored with my routine. Now that I’ve completed my degree I feel like I have a ton of new opportunities within my grasp but I’m not exactly sure which path to take…

I want a fresh start.

Part of me really wants to move to San Francisco; however, I realize it’s not a realistic at this time. Maybe a new city isn’t the answer?

I recently read on StreetArticles.com (in regards to restlessness):  “When we arrive on a smooth route in life, things are good at the beginning; we are happy, we feel comfortable and think to keep this state for good. But after a while, the well being becomes routine and we face a contradictory feeling when we want stay like this and move forward at the same time.” How true is that?

I assume part of this restlessness is due to my schedule being much more open than usual. At this time last year, I was heavily involved in ministry at my church, planning my wedding and taking a 20 hour course load at Ohio State. Maybe I’m just not used to all this free time?

What I do know is that this restlessness probably comes off in a very selfish light. Don’t get me wrong I’m not unhappy by any means; I am so blessed with the life God has given to me and I’m thankful for the opportunities I do have (and have recently been given) but is there something else to pursue? A new job? A new church? A new state? A new hobby?

I’ll keep praying for God to shed some light into my life but until then thanks for listening to my rant. 🙂

  1. I truly do believe that God will lead you in the right direction sweetie. Give it time, and until then just take what you have in life as a blessing. 🙂

    1. Thanks Jessie! I’m trying to be patient. 🙂 Good news though – I was offered a nanny job so I’m going to take that while I finish my teaching license. I’m excited because it is right down the street from my husbands school and we can car pool together!
