with your one wild and precious life?”
― Mary Oliver
I’m not sure where all this self-finding stuff is coming from, but I swear, it’s bubbling out of me like a volcano. Hey, I found out something new about myself! Hey! I realize that I don’t want to be here forever! Hey, I don’t need my scale! Hey, you are a toxic person – note to self: delete you from my life.
Question that the Editor asked herself on her self-finding journey (specifically, a work-finding journey) were:
- “If I could walk into the job of my dreams, and a work environment that suited me perfectly, what would it be like?
- What role would I play? What kind of team would I be part of, and what kinds of people would I work with on a daily basis?
- How would I spend my time, and what skills would I be using every day?
- What would the larger purpose of my work be? How would it be making the world a better place?”
I think these are important questions to ask. Questions that are terrifying when you are in a place or job that you’ve either been residing forever, or have been trained to live in. So I might ask these questions. I wonder how I will answer them….
As to the skills question, “what skills would I be using every day,” would most definitely be my nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills….
Oh, btw, saw my friend, Karen, a fellow blogger in spin class this morning. She’s got a hefty race schedule coming up, and she loves that Wednesday spin class as much as I do. Check out her blog if you haven’t already. Fellow Georgia girl. You must love her! You must!!
