Well, the news at work is official. There was a riff, and my boss lost his job in the process. It was a hard day, where I was numb to the news because I was processing what it means and if I feel secure in my work.
It’s caused me to reflect on what I want to do with my life and where I want to be. In this process, I have been applying for jobs in Pocatello to be with my boyfriend and end this long distance relationship. I want to do life together and learn what that means for us.
In contemplating what I want to do with my life, I have been taking several career assessments and asking mentors to speak into my life of where they see my strengths and talents. These assessments and conversations confirmed the areas I have been thinking about, but did nothing to provide any clarity or direction.
I am told my strengths are best suited for school counseling, teaching, business or as a communications director for a politician, campaign or organization. All of which are where i have been considering for years.
I am continuing to read, search and pray to figure out what my career is, but in the meantime I know that my personal mission is to change the world by loving people well.
