“Your calling isn’t something that somebody can tell you about. It’s what you feel. It is the thing that gives you juice. The thing that you are supposed to do. And nobody can tell you what that it is. You know it inside yourself.”

Oprah Winfrey


Your Calling

I have always admired those who knew what their calling was and were doing it.  I have been on a mad search for mine for as long as I can remember.  “That thing that gives you juice.”

The only thing I ever remember giving me “the juice” was creating something visual, drawing, painting, sculpture, digital art.  I am hesitant to call it art, I guess, but that is my own baggage…

That was the place where I was happiest and would find I would lose time.  Forget to eat and drink even.  But I had long since written that off as something “acceptable,” that I could actually do for a living.

I now find creating these graphics for this blog gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction, now if I can just find a way to make them pay the bills!

Have a great Wednesday!

 

My Thought for the Day…March 13, 2019

“If you follow your heart, if you listen to your gut, and if you extend your hand to help another, not for any agenda, but for the sake of humanity, you are going to find the truth.”

-Erin Brockovich

We’re all born with it.  That inner voice of wisdom, whether we choose to listen to it or not.  Often times we can’t hear it because of all the noise of life and its many distractions, but it’s still there, waiting patiently for us to tune in.

And when we do, in that moment, we might not always like what it has to say.  Because what the human wants in that moment isn’t always what is best, but ultimately the voice is usually right.  In hindsight this becomes apparent.

How many times this has happened for me and I still struggle to trust or have the courage to follow my inner wisdom!
