Not an hour ago I overheard a customer assuring a Barista that she didn't need to know what she was going to do with her life. That she'd figure it out. The thing.
And I'm over here screaming internally- YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT NOW. YOU'RE DOING THE THING FOR THIS MOMENT. It's your thing until you move onto the next thing. And I really believe, for some of us in this world, there will be multiple things we're called to do. And that's okay. Some people don't think it's okay. But I think it is. For some of us, having multiple things is a necessity.
I know I've mentioned previously how eye-opening it was to find out I'm a multi-potentialist.
But frankly, I've felt weird doing two different jobs the past two years. I get paid to run a business and I get paid to invest in college students' lives through mentoring and discipleship. I've seen people's faces as I explain what I do-- they look confused or they assume I'm still figuring out what it is I REALLY want to do. But nope, I'm here-- doing what I REALLY want to do, in two different ways.
For the first time EVER, a gal told me they wants to do what I do in the next few years of her life. She wants to do some kind of relational work with people AND she wants to run a side hustle. And I was like--- you can and you should. People will look at you weird-- but it's worth their weird looks or assumptions.
I think Anne with an E would say "How tragical it would be to not pursue one's life calling!".
We're about to head out on a vacation to Montana for my Sister's 40th birthday! But if you need me in the next few weeks, months, or years, I'll be over here... "being a lot of things."
I've posted about this life-changing talk before, but just in case you've never heard it and you've always felt like you were made to do a million things on this earth--- not just one hobby, one vocation, or one perfectly boxed in thing--- this talk is for your soul.
