3 Signs That It’s Time For A Change In Your Life: 

Sign #1: Clarity on What You Don’t Want 

Feeling frustrated, guilty, or even angry with the way things have been going is a common indication that change is needed. 


Although these emotions are typically perceived as negative, they can serve as a catalyst for positive action in your life. 


While it’s ideal to be clear on what you do want before making changes, the early frustration you experience shows you’re ready to take that crucial step. 


Embrace these emotions and use them as fuel to propel yourself towards the change you desire.

Sign #2: External Changes in Your Life 

If you notice other aspects of your life already undergoing significant changes, such as a new job, a new house, or a seasonal shift, this could be the perfect opportunity to initiate the changes you’ve been considering. 


Transition periods make it easier to alter your behavior, as everything is already in flux. 


Embrace the momentum of these external changes and make your desired changes alongside them, making the process smoother and more manageable.

Sign #3: Feeling Like a Bystander in Your Own Life 

Have you been feeling like a bystander rather than the main character of your life story? 


If things have been stagnant lately, it’s time to infuse more vitality and excitement into your life. Embarking on a change journey allows you to regain control and become the main character once again. 


Research has shown that having goals to work towards enhances wellbeing and introduces novelty, exploration, and personal growth. 


If you have been feeling like a bystander instead of the main character, take a moment to check in with yourself. Have you been so busy spending your time and your energy filling everyone else’s needs and neglecting your own? 


This may be hindering your ability to make the changes you desire.


Time To Take Action:

Pause for a moment and think about one specific aspect of your life that you’ve been contemplating changing repeatedly. 

What holds you back from taking action? 

Make a commitment to yourself by sharing that one thing in the comments below, along with one actionable step you’ll take to start making that change happen. 


Sharing your intentions will create a sense of accountability, motivating you to follow through with your plans.



If you’re ready to step into the spotlight as the main character of your life story, now might be the ideal time to make those changes you’ve been considering. 


Embrace the signs, take action, and invest in yourself to lead a more fulfilling and purposeful life.
