Making a Life Pivot

Sometimes “we must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell
And when this happens, be in, be real and be bold.

Early Jobs

“The useless days will add up to something…These things are your becoming.” unknown
Early jobs feel like nothing much is happening, but much is when you interact with others. Think of it as trying out your talents, interests and skills. Practice on customers, vendors, owners and your friends whom you convince to come by. It’s hard to forget our early jobs. They made us.

The Squiggly Path

Don’t be afraid of the squiggly path to find where you are gifted. We simply weren’t exposed to enough of the world before we were forced to choose a career route. Therefore pay attention to what you’re doing (and do it well), what the group is doing, and how you can contribute more…sometimes, simply by asking. Asking brings new people into focus whom you never knew existed.
These days, I try to look at the world with gentle eyes because I’ve learned that the best happenings occur that way.

Oh, and that thing is a slug.
