I have spent the majority of my life wondering and dreaming of what my life would look like once I became an adult. I went through college just waiting for the day that I would graduate and get a “big girl job.” As I stood on stage in my cap and gown I could taste the freedom that a full-time job would provide me. It took a few months but I signed that full-time contract and began my adult life. Since that day nothing has turned out the way I thought it would.
I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and have literally worked every job under the sun. From Starbucks Barista to Office Manager for a Rehab Clinic to Admissions Coordinator for an Elementary School… I have done it all!
I finally feel like I have found the place where I belong, where I fit in. But as I laid in bed the other night wondering what other turns life has in store for me it dawned on me… I have found my calling! The place where I belong, the place where I fit in and while it doesn’t deposit money into my checking account each month, it gives me smiles, and hugs, and kisses.
I have been searching my whole life for a career and I am proud to say that I have found it. I am proud of where I work and what I do every day! But I am also called to be a momma first! I have been searching for fulfillment and gratification and it was right in front of me all along. My calling to be a momma wasn’t one that I necessarily was looking for but it has been the most rewarding job I have ever had. And while I don’t think I will retire from my day job anytime soon it is humbling to know that what I was searching for all along is right in front of me at home.
