How convenient is it to wake up at 29 years old and realize you've been doing it all wrong. I suppose it's better than coming to that realization at 59. Still, trying to reconstruct your life in your 30's doesn't leave me with a good feeling yet staying on a path that I know isnt my own is even scarier.
Someone once spoke to me about living in the sweet spot of life. Living in the sweet spot is when you are doing the thing that you are good at, you are recognized for this thing that you are good at, and you love to do the thing that you are good at.
I am fortunate enough to know what my sweet spot is but like most people the first fear that comes to me is how the hell can I make a living off of that?! I want to do what I love... I also want to be able to afford my car, my home, and Starbucks coffee! (I almost never go to Starbucks in real life).
Thinking about the $90,000 I've spent in degrees to advance in my current career, knowing it wasn't what I truly wanted to do in my heart, literally makes me sick to my stomach. So what do I do now? Do I go back to school and create more debt? Do I just survive on a hope and a prayer?
What I can not live with is making it to the end of my life and knowing I didn't even try to get in the fight. I can live with trying my best even if it doesn't work out but I can't live with never trying at all.
If I truly believe in Gods ability to provide, how could I have fear? I can only give what I have and have faith that god will provide the rest?
Sounds good right? Still, it's scary as fuck?
I don't suggest you just cut off your main source of income and quit your job as a lawyer to become a professional flute player in your local subway station.
I just ask that God directs me to the right people, places, and things to live in my sweet spot!
