I heard this phrase while at the movies the other day. A couple where having a conversation about their careers. The girl asked the guy about his job and if it was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. He said it was a good job and it paid well but it wasn't his passion and she asked, don't you want to love something?
I had never really thought about it that way before now. I went to school to become an Esthetician simply because at the time it was the only thing I enjoyed and that I could see myself doing as a career. I have never put my career first, instead choosing a job that would pay well making travel possible.
I am an extremely restless person. I switch back and forth and change my mind a million times, so for me, finding my purpose has been a bit of a struggle. For example, I have had five different jobs in one year. Simply because there was something that bothered me, or I didn't exactly agree with certain rules or procedures.
I have realized over the years that I will never be someone who just wants to do one thing. I have a long list of courses and programs I would like to take. Some for fun and others so I can test them out to see if I want to turn it into a career. I am envious of those who have always known what they wanted to do and have been happy in their career choice for years.
I am happy to report that I have signed up for a month long intensive yoga teacher training program. True to my nature I am diving right in, ready to fully immerse myself in the experience. For the next few months I will be working on my practice, making sure that I am ready for the challenge ahead. I have a long list of books to read, some on the required reading list and others that have peaked my curiosity. I am really excited to share this experience with you guys and hopefully at the end of July I will be a qualified yoga teacher.
What are you passionate about? What steps did you take to figure it out?
