Lately I have been in a quandary as to where my journey is going. I just don’t feel like I am doing what I need to be doing, but I don’t know how to get started going to where I need to be going and doing what I feel I need to be doing. I guess this blog is a good start in the right direction, but how can I turn blogging into a career? I have been at my current job for 3.5 years. Recently, there has been talk about my moving on from my job, not by my choice, but it is what it is. We will cross that bridge when we get to it. But, when the journey ends its direction without our say so, where do we go from there? How do we get to where we want to be, or more importantly, where we NEED to be?!
I know I can go the distance. I know every mile will be worth my while, but I need to find the right path first, don’t I? I can’t just keep wandering aimlessly looking for that next thing to do. Up to now, everything I have done, aside from marrying my best friend, has been something to do. Struggles arise and I move to the next thing. Have any of you ever felt like you just don’t know where you are going with your journey? I know beyond the shadow of a doubt I want to be a writer! I want to be paid handsomely to sit at my computer and churn out words after words after words, whether it be for businesses, or books, or journals, or e-commerce, or research or God Willing even this blog THAT is what I want my life to be! I want to be able to take my lap top to a coffee shop, sit and write and people watch ALL. DAY. LONG! But, I have no idea how to begin that journey or how to get there.
I know that my journey will end where it is supposed to end. I just wish all the pieces would fit together at one time. Piece by piece they fall into place in the great puzzle that is my life. I have a great marriage (finally!) I get to baby sit my little niece (not nearly often enough, but I do), I make people happy every single day. I have a great faith that I know I can venture into the unseen and know all will be for good, and yet… Something feels unfinished. Something feels misguided. I often wonder will I ever truly belong where I am? Maybe I am just a misfit on planet earth and God has ordained me for a higher purpose that will not be realized until I am in His Kingdom. I would love to hear from anyone else who has encountered these feelings or anyone who has become a paid blogger and seriously give me some steps to work towards becoming a paid writer. I truly feel THAT is where I belong and I would go most anywhere to make sure that that happens because even though I can’t see the end of the journey, I have faith that that is where I belong. I Love You All! Thank you for reading my late night ramblings. Let’s converse. Let’s chat. I would love to get to know more people in the Word Press Universe. Don’t forget… I.M.P.A.C.T. Tomorrow!! You DO make positive actions come true!
