Last night I tuned in to a free tele-seminar offered by dating coach Bobbi Palmer. Bobbi specializes in helping women over 40 find love. (Hm...how apropos.) I don't know Bobbi super well yet, but from my interactions with her and what I've seen from her, she seems nothing short of fabulous. Bobbi's guest was a woman named Deborah Kagan, who is many things; one of the things she calls herself is a sensual life specialist. Basically she helps women tap into their true selves and live with more energy and passion. The seminar was called Finding Your ME Spot: 3 Steps to Your Sexy, Sensual Self!. What I'm taking away from it are subjects for whole other blog posts.
But one thing resulted that I truly didn't expect. I realized it in the car on the way to work this morning: I am meant for "better" work than this. I'm talking about my full-time job here (this certainly does not relate to Bare Escentuals)...and what has been my full-time work for most of my career. Not to denigrate my that job or my company--both are perfectly respectable. But as I was thinking about it in the car today, I realized: I long for something much...deeper. Something more...immediate. Something where I, like Bobbi and Deborah, can help others live better lives. I mean, how gratifying must that be...to improve the lives of others because you did your thing! I want that.
This isn't a brand-new thought; it just clicked this morning in a new way. (Isn't it funny how you can think about something for what is collectively a pretty large amount of time...before you really realize it?)
I don't know yet exactly what my "life's work" will look like. I have some ideas, ones that actually formed prior to last night, but I'm letting 'em incubate for now. As you know if you've read my other posts, I still have a lot of work to do on me before I'll have the energy to fully throw myself into some brand-new venture. (Not that I can't give of myself now...it's all a matter of degrees.)
In any case, I will of course...keep you posted.
P.S. It feels great to write a post with a tag of "Inspiration" instead of one with tags like "Discouragement," "Rant"....Yay!
