Rita Wilson on Doing What you Love | THESE HERE HILLS.
This post provided a boost of inspiration for me to start this blog, so I think it’s fitting to share it. What I liked most was this idea of tuning in to what you loved in your youth, when you were most free and creative, in looking for what career path would fulfill you the most. How simple, yet so fitting! After reading, I sat down and tried to write a list of what I absolutely love to do the most. After I finished, I had the feeling that the answer to what I should be pursuing professionally was right in front of me, I could almost reach it except I couldn’t step back far enough to see the big picture, to connect the dots. I SO wanted to have an outside observer look at it. Perhaps someone else, maybe even someone who has never met me, could see what I’m not seeing. Also, if anyone out there would like to do this exercise as well and send their list to me, I’d be more than happy to give an outsider’s opinion on what strikes me.
- feeling connected to a person/people
- learning about people and their lives – listening, watching, giving my attention
- writing: words, images, stories, even the feel of forming words and putting pen to paper.
- taking care of people; feeling responsible for and committed to their happiness/wellbeing; feeling needed; to have control of or responsibility for a situation, outcome, person, experience
- to be in charge: not in the power way but in the way that i am considered capable and trustworthy and rising to challenge; doing something independently
- researching: delving into information and digging around, searching, following whatever information leads me. then, developing an opinion about what i’ve learned and organizing the information
- organizing, recording, categorizing, sense-making
- moving, stretching, pushing, focusing, and being still in my body, feeling grounded and centered in the physical
Now I’m going to go allow my inner child out for a while and play in my sunny front yard!
