I Have a Restless Spirit

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 327 People

    Restless,

     I enjoy change, when things are the same for to long it makes me nervous and I usually have to change something. I like learning new things and experimenting with different ideas when I can.

    The Restless Times.

    There's a restlessness that lives in me, and it asks 'what are you striving for, who are you pining for, why are you trying so hard!' And I just lie there and chant 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'...until sleep overwhelms me. At times I have the persistent, niggling...

    The Next Adventure

    I'm always looking, searching, dreaming for the next thing. I get bored easy. I guess being artistic, it might come with the territory, but I'll start one project and immediately start looking ahead to the next. I finish what I start and enjoy it, but the rush, the excitement...

    Restless.. Its the nature of my spirit,

    sometimes I feel like there's so much of me its difficult to keep it bottled up in this physical form, sometimes it feels as if part of me is lost and I feel as if I wander so much looking for it, even though my quest at times feels hopeless and with that weight I cary around...

    Free

    I am, and always have been a free spirit trapped in a human body. I feel often as though there is too much of me to live in this small cell of skin and bone. I often moved as a young kid, which i think attributed to my nomad spirit. I will more than likely always a person on the...

    I wish I knew what I was searching for.

    I feel like I'm aimlessly wanting some unknown thing. What is missing? I love my life, I am lucky, I am gifted with amazing loved ones, yet I still feel incomplete. Should I force contentment on myself? Or should I continue to try and find the missing piece? Should I follow...

    Lonely Wanderer

    That's Me

    It's the "Tiger" in me. The Chinese say that it is very difficult to have a daughter born under the sign of Tiger. They are hard to marry off. Too aggressive. I agree.
