If change hasn’t already occurred get ready because something’s coming! There is going to be or has been a major upheaval either within or without. This is a call to accept a major restructuring, break out of your prison. Bust out of complacency, embrace the change, if you are in crisis dig deep with professional therapy or if that is unaffordable or unavailable, with a trusted friend. Eliminate the unworkable or the inhibiting. No longer accept ignorance as an acceptable course of action, look to improve and change. Have courage and save yourself. Weather the storm and if you have to leave get out of a situation.

This can be anxiety and a desire to make a change but being unsure of how to proceed.
