Knowing that you are staying in a situation that is no longer serving your higher purpose takes the fun out of living.
We become fearful of the future and what is to come.
Then we become stuck, in relationships, dead-end jobs and even the rut of daily living.
It’s almost as if we devalue ourselves, our time and the sacred moments we have here.
If this sounds a little too familiar, read on to recognize the signs of staying too long.
It’s time to move on when you are bored.
Every day we face challenges in some area of our lives.
We reach for new levels of success, happiness, and abundance in those challenges.
When you find yourself surfing through mindless avenues of entertainment or feeling like you don’t have anything to do, you are becoming bored.
Boredom is the devil’s playground.
Now I’m not talking about the little man with the trident who lives in the melting pot of Hell.
I’m talking about humans creating things that don’t serve our greater purpose in life.
Splitting ourselves off from what God created us to be.
People stop using their gifts and developing our sense of common humanity.
We have all lived in this quadrant of life at some point, it sucks and your thoughts will suck you right in if you let them…so don’t allow yourself to get bored.
Create new ways of enjoying where you are, the moment you no longer can, it’s time to move on.
When you are no longer learning it’s time to move on.
If you feel like you know everything there is to know, that might not be totally true.
I’m sure we have all been in situations for years, predicting the outcome and watching it come to pass.
Maybe it’s a family member that never changes or a boss that ignores your requests or even a loved one who you feel you know everything about.
We close ourselves off to new possibilities when we “think we know.”
At this point, we are no longer learning.
We believe things can’t be different then what they have been in the past.
There is no opportunity for growth.
Recognizing you are shut off to other people’s behavioral changes doesn’t need to be the reason you leave, however, we all know when we have had enough.
Always take a moment to question what you are learning if anything.
When there is nothing else we feel we can learn from them or the situation then it’s time to move on.
Arguing with yourself is a great reason to move on.
I know I can’t be the only one who has ever gotten that nagging deep-seated feeling to walk away.
And then totally ignored it.
This is where the internal argument used to begin.
My ego would say what about the money, and you have kids to worry about.
The awesome internal guidance system I was built with would say, “Don’t worry, we got this, just move on.”
Oh, the struggle was REAL.
Ultimately, I would stay. As a matter of fact, I would say it all the time, “I’m a stayer.”
I wouldn’t leave when the going got tough.
However, I would be mentally exhausted from the internal argument.
I thought I knew better than my internal guidance system, that was ludacris.
And, every single time when I finally listened, it was so easy.
Not the walking away, not turning my back on a situation, actually walking by faith to meet the next level of growth.
“All the goodness is out there”, as my good friend Bonnie so eloquently put it to me today, “We decide what we want to pull in.”
I know what I don’t want and what signs to look for when it’s time to move on.
Go out today and pull in the goodness you deserve and when it’s time, don’t be afraid to move on.
Until next week my loves,
Agape ❤ ,
