Increasingly, individuals are feeling a restlessness, a boredom, perhaps even a dissatisfaction with their jobs, and/or the direction their lives have taken. Their days may look exactly like what they’d hoped for in high school, or they may be carving out a totally different path because ‘life happened.’ In any case, something is missing, or it’s not what they thought, or their goals have changed.
In 2015, I attended an event in Seattle that changed my life. That weekend inspired me. It motivated me to soul-search, to finally connect to what I believe my purpose to be, which is to help people. Helping people has always made me happy; it adds value to my life; and I learn so much. The big question I had, though, was how to follow through with a plan of action.
Instead of thinking in terms of more education to fit a particular job, that event inspired me to create my own path, to use the resources I have, and the skills I’ve already developed to fulfill my purpose. So, ignoring the naysayers, I barged ahead with Compassion Pop Up events, and Creativity Counts workshops. These activities have shown me that it’s a process, and today I continue to learn as I go, to meet like-minded people, and to let the path unfold as it may.
