Well, it appears I am on the job hunt again. This is the third time in five years that I have been let go from a job and I’m not sure if this firing is a good thing or a bad thing. Granted, I can recognize that I didn’t pour myself into the job with 100% effort and I really didn’t enjoy the work environment or culture; however, it is still a disappointment to be let go.
I want to do something different though, but I don’t know how to get there. I don’t know what it is I want, but I am tired of the grind I have put myself through to find those jobs that pay the bills. I want to feel passionate about what I’m doing and I want to be engaged in a vocation that grips my soul and is my cause, on some level. I don’t know what that is or how to get there.
I’ve often wondered how I can be self-employed and offer my knowledge and skills in a way that can be of use towards something greater than myself. I have pondered what it would take to do just such a thing, but I can’t seem to brainstorm the ideas that would help me get there. I know I want it, I know I can do it, because I’m not much of a quitter. But what it is, I do not know…
But what is it?
Where am I going to go with this?
How can I get there?
