What is my role? What is my mission?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”

Mary Oliver

 

What is my Role? In the world? In my relationships? To myself?

Over the last 18-months, I’ve taken a huge step back from work and all the running around that has been the energetic signature of my life for many, MANY years.

Much of what I spent time pondering during this time, “What is my role in the world?” “What SHOULD I do with my ‘one wild and precious life?'”

I was raised in a time and place that encouraged soul searching and finding your passion. The only career advice I ever got was, “Do whatever you want as long as it makes you happy.”…

Um…

Thinking and feeling is good. Checking in with yourself is important. I actually really dig it. Maybe too much.

Here is my reality–after months of sitting on the couch thinking–is that I will never find out what’s next until I start moving toward something.

Easier said than done. I’ve moved toward many, MANY things in my life and have been knocked on my ass. I have also been rewarded. So, I’m gun shy and a little cautious? No, Wiser. I’M WISER!

My answer: Get up. Keep moving. My radar is tuned. I will figure out quickly if the choice is right. And I may actually have fun along the way.
