Currently, Im a web programmer, internet marketer. Good money, but..its boring me to death.
Ive always been interested in people. What makes them tick, what motivates them, the gentle art of persuasion, knowing what buttons to press in the right order, at the right time.
This has been a consistant theme in my life, its a big part of who I am, yet lately I realise that Im working alone, isolated from others, not really interacting in any meaningful sense, just trying daily to re-invigorate a passion/hobby that turned into a job.
Well, it isn’t working, nothing else seems to be happening, Work life is flat, I’m stuck and need to move on to the next chapter in my existence.
See, I often find myself problem solving for others. For example. I’ll hear a viewpoint or problem from a friend and find myself looking at things through their eyes. I find I can be objective and see the hurdles, or impracticabilities of wherever they may be. For some reason, I find it relatively easy to see the blockages and offer up alternatives, or at least points for consideration.
Ok, so my life experience has made me the person I am today. Its been full of interesting and dead boring experiences. Ive found myself in all sorts of roles and situations which have given me the opportunity to explore many facets of who I am, and what I am. Take these past 3 years, my life fell apart. Everything I ever dreaded came to pass and yet, in some ways Im so glad for it too. As without, I would have quite probably remained stuck. Instead, I underwent 3 years of counselling and have grown significantly. It was damn hard work, as some of my more erratic posts on here might testify, but it was, and still is, a worthwhile journey.
Most of us at some point or other feel stuck or in situations that we’d rather not be. Do we ever really know what lies ahead? Of course not. My point though is that occassionaly we might feel drawn to a certain discipline, or person or place even. We often don’t know why exactly other than its something thats there continually surfacing, making us act or move to a decision. Our subconsious perhaps? Who knows, maybe – perhaps this is part of some interconnected plan for us all. Maybe we all have some loosely defined roadmap that we all must follow. We all have our roles and parts to play in this thing called life. Some take the standardised path of education, degree, career for life etc, others are equipped for their futures by past experiences presented.
Maybe God, does indeed work in mysterious ways :D
