Does everyone have a calling? I believe so. Why do some shout and live theirs out as loud as possible, i.e. Tony Robbins, while the rest of us struggle to even figure out where to start?
I have not had that aha moment. The moment where I am certain that I have discovered my complete calling. Will there be an aha moment? Or will it be a series of moments over a series of time? I don’t know.
What I do know is that during the beginning of my life I used to dream. When I think about it now, many of these dreams could have been my calling. But as adulthood approached and the “need” to be responsible and successful became more “important”, dreams took a backseat. When this happens for over a decade it’s hard to try and uncover these dreams again.
On the other hand, I’ve changed. I see the world differently than I did at 21 and 22. So perhaps those dreams weren’t a calling after all?
Whatever the case, I felt called to stay home with Sissy Boo for more than three months of her life. Each day, up through today, I know I made the right choice – I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. Of course some days I feel it more than others, but in my heart of hearts I know that I was meant to spend this precious time with my children.
I feel called to share this new perspective of the world that has changed my whole life. My calling gives me a feeling that cannot be described – only felt. It is bigger than me and when I feel it, the question of what I’m doing on earth steadily starts to get answered.
