It is often said that if you find a job you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. So far, I’ve spent all of my working life working so I guess the search continues.
Following the theme from recent weeks, I am completing the blueprint section for work and career. The first question has my attention.
“What do I want to do with the rest of my life?”
Cue a large dose of blue sky thinking. I think the best way to answer this is to not place restrictions in the mind. Answer it as if I have no responsibilities except to my inner child. What does she fancy doing?
Easy! Hand in my notice at work, write an amazing, life-changing book, live of the sales of said book and its sequels, and run wellness courses to coach perimenopausal/menopausal women in how to reclaim the fun in this part of our lives. This looks more like a mission statement than an answer.
“Am I willing to take measured risks to pursue my dreams?”
Yes I am. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. That said, I still have bills to pay and a pension to pay for so I need a steady income.
“What new skills would I like to develop?”
I have a big wish list. In no particular order, here it is –
- Crystal therapy
- Angel Oracle Card Reading
- Kitchen-garden witchcraft
Now to find the time to combine my entire wish list with my paid job so I can give my inner child the time of her life!
