At some stage in your life, you will get tired of your current position, and you will feel like moving forward. Moving forward can mean either relocating to a completely different destination and away from your comfort zone or finding a way to improve your qualifications and experience, as you search for a better or more fulfilling future. But most of the time when we get to that dream location, we get distracted, and we lose focus. Many times, those dream locations/destinations/countries are not as rosy as they are portrayed in books and magazines, so we tend to redesign, restructure and fine-tune our initial goal. We tend to forget the reason why we decided to change our location or status in the first place.
I have good news for you, it’s never too late to retrace your steps, even if you have lived in a location for decades. Retracing your steps back to what you initially planned before leaving your comfort zone might not be easy. You might need to spend time, energy and money to achieve that life-fulfilling career or job that you desired, but in the end, you will be a happier man or woman by doing that. As we all know, doing what you love, brings out the best in any person and might even prolong their life, because they are not under any stress. If you are single, retracing your steps might be much easier than someone who is engaged or married because you need to consider your spouse or partner with any decision you make. I am sure if the matter is approached carefully, he or she will understand your reasons. Remember, we are Homo sapiens, and we must work together. To assist you in retracing steps, try to associate with like minds, as we all know that “great minds think alike”.
Before I conclude, always remember the main reason why you made that decision to move forward years ago, it might be your key driving force. Although retracing your steps back might be challenging or might look impossible at times, in the end, you will have a story to tell. If you feel this article has reminded you of your past decisions, please tell us, and encourage and assist someone to retrace their steps.
