The Road to Finding My Calling

Well it has been almost two weeks since my last post. I have been on a long journey mentally. I have for a while now, been trying to figure out what my calling in life is. I am one of those people who believe that we all have gifts and must find a way to use those gifts or talents to help people in one way or another. I love helping people and that is why at the moment I work as a Behavior Interventionist with children in school and in home settings. My work brings me lots of happiness at times, but mostly a gratifying feeling of making a difference in the lives of others. There are down sides to everything in life and for the kind of work that I do, the pay is not all that great unless you have a Masters degree, which I at this time do not posses. I am also not as interested in the more scientific aspect of my job, which is to examine and analyze. I do not diagnose disorders. I like interacting and implementing goals and strategies because I am able to use my creativity. That is what I am good at and that is what my clients like about me, I believe. I am really good at what I do but, I feel that something is missing and I feel the need to grow. Therefore, this week I began my first class in design. So far I love it! Here is a sketch similar to what my professor had us do on our first day. We are studying line. I felt so free and full of wonder while making this. Why didn’t I do this sooner? I am a self proclaimed late bloomer. ;)) Please share any similar stories or feedback.
