I resigned from my job on friday. It was scary, but good at the same time. It felt like the right thing to do, and it still does two days later.
The new question arises: what will I do now? I need to have a job because I need an income. After all, I have bills to pay. Which means I have about three months to find a new job. Finding a new job might be hard or easy, or a little bit of both. The bigger question for me is what job do I really want?
What do I want to do with my life? That is a BIG question I haven’t found the answer to (yet). What do I want to do for a living?
I don’t remember where I found the quote, but here it is:
Passion is not a plan; it’s a feeling – and feelings change.
I can relate to this quote; I’ve changed the last year. Or, I keep changing all the time – we all do, but I have struggled the past year and therefor also learnt a lot about myself. All that learning seem to have led to changes in me. I want to live an intentional life with purpose. I want a direction. I want to make a difference for the better in someones life. I want to motivate and inspire people.
The last couple of days I’ve been thinking that maybe I shouldn’t try to find my dreamjob, but rather figure out what I’m good at and possible work with something like that. I mean, who doesn’t want to work with something they are good at? The feeling of achieving a goal of some sort it a pretty good feeling.
So, what am I good at?
- organizing and planning
- writing (at least I like to think so)
- convey/talk about books
- personal finance (at least my own finances)
I’m sure there are more things I’m good at, but these were the ones that popped into my head first.
How do I figure out what to do based on what I’m good at? That is something I have yet to answer, but I better figure something out soon…
Feel free to make suggestions; I’ll need all the help I can get 🙂
