Divine Discontent

Updated: Mar 4

Have you ever felt out of sorts, or had that feeling of restless dissatisfaction with what is? Nothing is majorly wrong, but you are bored or dissatisfied with the status quo. You can't quite put your finger on what is wrong but you know something is. Yep, me too!

That is divine discontent!

What if I told you that it is divine because being discontent with what is eventually leads to making things different and often better.

I was working with my coach yesterday, and while expressing some uncertainty and doubts about some areas of my life, (mostly related to things out of my control, such as COVID-19,) I acknowledged that I have indeed come a long way.

In my past my usual "go to" when I was feeling discontent was to spring into action. Any action; and it was often to my detriment. Sometimes making my problems feel worse!

I have come to appreciate that there is often muck and mire prior to the clarity! I am much more content at resting in the divine discontent.

How did I get there, and how can you get to that place of being content with divine discontent?
