Saw this today on a blog. Written to someone who was thinking about switching careers, and something about it really resonated with me.

"I know that the job thing has been bothering you for a while. I feel like in a way you are pregnant with the idea that you need to do something else, but the definition of what that is is still hazy enough to stay inside you. Once you find it deep in your soul nothing will stop you from giving birth to it – be it a business(es), new job, whatever. Right now you are just in that third trimester of uncomfortableness – but that’s a good thing! It makes the giving birth part a whole lot easier because you are so unhappy and “fat” with the possibility that there is something new around the corner. Give it time, eventually life, God, and your next step will come from within you so strongly that you’ll be in labor before you know it and never look back! You can’t stuff a baby back inside once it wants to come out."

I feel like this really could apply to any big life changes that you know are just around the corner, that you are uncomfortably and anxiously waiting for. But the waiting isn't necessarily a bad thing.
