Purposefully at Peace

Today, I realized that I have finally arrived at my destination.  For years, I have encouraged others to pursue their dreams, overcome obstacles, and transform their lives by being intentional.  If we teach best what we need to learn – they I have a PhD in that subject matter.

For years, I was miserable on my own path.

As I look back over my life, I recall having great JOBS, yet always feeling empty.  As a result, often I would start a side job or entreprenuerial venture to appease myself.  That did not work because it only stretched me thinner at the end of the day.

Since my last blog post – Intro to my authentic self…, I have been busy decluttering my life (physically and emotionally).  I had to make some tough decisions, and shed some people, places, and things.  I took a break from blogging to make sure that I was focused and paying attention to my life and what I was manifesting on a daily basis.

As I decluttered my living space, I kept finding old business cards.  This reminded me of all those times, I was in search of the right career or usefulness in life.  While I am rich in experience (the positive side of my journey), more importantly I am purposefully at peace with where I am today as an educator.

There is no dread of going to work, no concern about finances (everybody likes more money, but it should not be the thing that drives you in my opinion).  Teaching is truly what I was purposed to do.

Now, I can relax and get on with being my personal best this academic year as a middle school teacher.

Whew! No more pressure!

  1. I needed to hear this today – I am wondering why I am not content with the job I’m in. On the surface it appears amazing – but something just isn’t right for me. I am in the process of simplifying my life in a bid to listen to my heart. You gave me hope to hang in there perhaps the answer is close by 🙂
