I Feel So Legit...

The word vocation comes from the Latin word vocare which means "to call".

I've been thinking a lot about my vocation. My calling. What am I meant to do?

I'm a teacher by trade and weather I like it or not, it's part of me. I come by it naturally. But lately I've been wondering if that's truly my calling. Is it what I'm meant to do?

My answer: yes...and no.

I know there is a way to blend all those creative aspects that I love with my teaching skills.

So, I'm putting myself out there.

I'm going to start offering private crochet and sewing lessons.

I will open that Etsy shop I mentioned earlier this year.

I've started accepting commissions.

And I've begun offering my photography services.

Consider my hat in the ring.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm legit enough for all this. I question my skills. I compare myself to others. I focus on the hows and what-ifs.

Begone self-doubt!

This is what I want to do when I grow-up. This is what I love. Everyone has a beginning and this is mine.

Look at me. I'm jumping off the high diving board.
