Okay, I have a dilemma. One that I cannot figure out by myself. Hoping you have suggestions to help me out.

For as long as I can remember, I have pride myself on self-improvement. If there were any areas of my life I felt needed to be fixed, I made an active effort to get it done. Whether it is spending extra time to read self-improvement books or working extra hard at the gym (pre-COVID). Whatever it took, I did it. In college, you could always find me reading in the basement of the library. After graduating early from college, I went directly into graduate studies and from graduate studies, I jumped headfirst into my career.

But even with these accomplishments, I desire more from life. I want to spend time traveling, learning a new language, improving medical skills, and cooking. I want to be challenged on an intellectual level. These desires are not quenched by simply reading.

I enjoy my work. I love my home-life and family. But I wonder, constantly, what more I can accomplish

I figure going back to school for another degree would be one way to break up my routine, and I am strongly considering this now. But, what about the other aspect of life.

Am I the only one? Do you ever find yourself feeling stuck?

The truth- it can happen to any of us, but we must persevere!

Comment and share below. Suggestions appreciated.




  1. You are NOT the only Oliver Twist in the World. Human desires are often insatiable: the more we have, the more we want to get. Similarly, stagnancy is very subjective and personal. Apparently, nobody can quench your HUNGER for more other than you. The biggest mistake we often make is allowing someone (parents, friends, and peer pressure) or something (technology, social media, etc.) to determine what stagnancy or progress means to us. You are in charge! Keep moving! Keep going for more while you can for the benefit of yourself and others!

  2. That desire to continue to grow is God-given, my sister! And truly wonderful! Do you experience it all areas of your life, including spiritual? Maybe looking for new opportunities to use your spiritual gifts in service to others could also introduce some new satisfaction 🙂
