Can You Be Grateful and Still Crave Change?

As we gear up for Thanksgiving, gratitude fills the air. We're thankful for our jobs, the stability they offer, the bills they help us pay. But let's get real for a sec. In the midst of this thankfulness, there's this tiny whisper inside longing for something different. Something more. Sound familiar? You're not alone. It's okay to feel this way. In reality, it's more than okay—it's an indicator that you're ready to break free.

Gratitude and Big Dreams: No Apologies Needed

Feeling grateful for your job while craving something more is not just okay, it screams authenticity. Truly embracing gratitude means allowing all of it, the thankfulness and the thirst for change, to coexist without hypocrisy. So remind yourself, gratitude doesn't mean we suppress our aspirations. No, my friend, we let that balance shine.

The Inner Whisper: Trust It, Lean In To It

Feeling a little misplaced? Do you sense there's a greater purpose for you? Embrace it. These feelings aren't random noise. They're more like a compass, guiding you to your true north.

Remember, that promise from above:

"For I know the plans I have for you...plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  - Jeremiah 29:11

Our instincts, that quiet whisper, want us to listen. So let's lend some attention to it.

Embrace Change: Your Great Adventure

Remember, the strange unease of wanting something different is not your enemy – it's your ally. This itch for change is a signal from deep down suggesting evolution, growth. This feeling? It's courage. The courage to pursue more purposeful paths. You're already on your way!

In the end, it's about nurturing your spirit this Thanksgiving. Yes, we appreciate the jobs we hold. We appreciate where we are. But never forget, we’re far from being finished. There's still a great journey ahead. As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, let's also gather our dreams and channel our fervor to realize them.

So, what next? Take a moment, reflect, and listen to your heart. What's it saying? Need a little guidance unraveling the messages? ALU is here to help you navigate. Let's uncover your purpose together and set your potential free.
