The following is one of my all-time favorite questions.
WHAT are you here to do?
I’ve always said I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I think I said it again last week…….
How is it that some people simply know their calling and others struggle with it? As long as I can remember, the one thing I wanted to be was a mother. Well, with two kids out of the house and another two on their way out within the next few years, what do I want to do with the rest of my life?
Oh, I know you never really stop mothering – it just changes – you aren’t needed with the same intensity. And you eventually get to grandparent (which, by the way, IS WONDERFUL).
I guess I always thought there would be some sort of sign; a defining “AHA” moment in which it would all come to me. There hasn’t been. So I look at the 5 things that I do each week that make me happy…..as suggested by Joe Vitale in “The Ultimate Law of Attraction” (available on www.audible.com or www.amazon.com). Joe states that one or all of those things could be your calling.
My five things are: yoga, reading, writing, cooking and mothering. Which of these are my calling? And how do I transform it into a career or what I’m meant to do? Hmmmm…..I’ll have to get back to you on that one. I’m still working on it!! But I WILL figure it out!
So tell me, what are YOU here to do?
Peace & Love! Have a wonderful week.
What Are You Here To Do
By Jim Warda
What are you here to do?
O.K., so that question might have caught you off guard but off guard can be a great place to start.
So, again, I’m curious. What are you here to do?
The thing that, when you think about being it, you almost catch fire.
Because I’ve been noticing your wild eyes lately. In fact, I had meant to tell you earlier. But, somehow life got its hands on me.
But, the truth is that I’ve seen your restlessness, the way you just can’t seem to get comfortable, like sitting in a leather chair with shorts on.
And I’ve heard your fingers tapping against the railing as you make your way down the stairs. And you’re humming a song from a high school play you never tried out for.
And I know that look. The one that means you’re getting clear on who and what and why you want to do what you’re going to do with your life. And even more definite about the fact that you’re intended for a quest, a quixotic blaze of goodness and glory.
So, please let me know, what is it? What gifts are you going to gift us with? What tales will you tell with your lips and your song?
What chills your skin with the thought of just doing it? What widens your eyes simply by saying it? I’m so excited that I just can’t contain myself.
And, you know how impatient I can be, so I’ll just ask again.
What are you here to do?
Oh, and I almost forgot.
Are you doing it?
