Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? Me neither … and I’m 48 and supposedly all grown up!
I have been trying to find the answer to this question for the past 10 years; before then I was completely engaged in full-time parenting and had no desire for anything else.
I recently started a new business and feel very confident that I am closer than ever to finding my dream work. (Check out my new page) It is easy to get distracted by bright shiny objects (money, fame, glory, romantic notions etc…) but ultimately in order to discover abundance in your work life it is essential to honor who you are. I received this lovely passage in a newsletter this morning and hope it serves as a reminder to us all:
From motivational author J. Wallace Hamilton:
Don’t settle for anything less than what you really want. Be wary of accepting offers of safety and security at the expense of your own creative freedom. Once you trade your freedom for the illusion of security, you have a hard time ever getting your freedom back. Follow your heart, and your life will be blessed with unexpected favors.
