Have you felt it? It starts small… almost imperceptible, especially if we’re over-focused on our busy-ness. And yet it may be the most important indicator it’s time for a change.
It starts with a gentle nudging from within. The feeling of an elbow on the inside, poking you gently in the ribs.
“…hey…” it drawls softly. You feel it, but you’re busy. You brush it aside.
Sometime later, you feel it again. “Hey…” it says. This time you feel it a bit more strongly, but you’re busy. You push it down.
You will feel it again. The Nudge, once it’s begun to appear, doesn’t ever really go away.
It does, however, get stronger. It may wait until some other life incident happens – change in partner, empty next, downsizing. You feel it again.
“Hey!” it nudges strongly from the inside.
This is the inner call that there is something, some way, some you that is really trying hard to get your attention.
In this video produced by Karen Elgersma, two Work/Life Clarity clients share their experiences with The Nudge, their journeys of finding their natural gifts, and ultimately what it means to them.
Karen herself has felt The Nudge. Like Agi and Diana in the video above, Karen explains “… something inside of me was whispering it was time to move on. I was terrified. How do you give up one of the great loves of your life?” (The Nudge – Karen Elgersma)
Heeding the call of The Nudge is a life transition that is so very worth it. When we look deeply inside, discover our natural gifts, and step over the Line of Courage to take aligned action, we experience joy and peace. Curious? Take your first step: come for tea.
