Your Calling; The Opportunity In The Difficult Times...

August 30, 2016

This piece is dedicated to my Egyptian peeps, with the tough times we are living, lies an opportunity. It is either a time to blame, complain, and give excuses or rise and find the opportunity.

This is not the time for finding or losing a job. That could be the time to connect and embrace your calling. You lost it any way, and you were not happy, so look for happiness, find your calling.

What is a calling?

As beautifully described by one of my favorite authors, Marianne Williamson:

“ Your calling is what you would do whether you were paid to do it or not
Your calling is what you have to do in order to be happy
Your calling is what connects you to your deepest self, and to the rest of life around you.
If you have no idea what that would be, simply pray:
”Dear God, Please use me”.

There is no time for finding your calling; I found mine when I was almost 50 years young

Watch for the trap of “This cant make a living”, could anyone imagine what Steve Jobs was doing in his parents garage would make a living ??

“ Your abilities, your intelligence, your talents, your personality, your circumstance, your dreams will all come together in a beautiful pattern. And you will see all this as your calling- a calling back and forth, in a continuous song, from your heart to the universe and the universe back to you” Marianne Williamson.

Open up, look for the gift; the opportunity to live your calling and you will find it and live it!
