So much has happened over the course of the past couple months. My life has shifted dramatically, and I feel that I am on a better, more fulfilling course. When last I wrote here, I believe that I was doing some substitute teaching and looking for more full-time employment that would nurture my soul and feed my spirit. I found that, in spades.
When I lost my last job, I made a list of the things that I wanted for my next job. I sat down and made a list of the things that I love to do, then tried to paint them within a bigger picture. This is the list that I came up with.
- I love to teach. I feel that to teach well, you must constantly be learning, and learning is of utmost importance to me.
- Service is a part of who I am. I do not feel right spending most of my time doing activities that do not in some way contribute to the betterment of the world.
- Doing the same repetitive task over and over kills me. I need variety in my life. Every day.
- Sitting in one spot all day long was killing me. I need to be more physically active.
After making that list, I tried relentlessly to find the “Perfect” job, but it turns out, it found me, which is another story in and of itself.
Anyway, now I work for a non-profit, leading the education department and setting into order the workings of the organization. That organization’s mission is to save the honey bee. I teach people about bees and their importance to our lives. I am in service to a greater cause. Each day is new, and I get to wear many hats. Plus, I work outside with bees about 1/3 of time. Goddess is Good!
