What is calling you?

On the Owning Pink website a while ago, there was a post titled "What is calling you?"  This post really spoke to me and I wanted to share my current calling...

I think we are called to do many things in our lifetime.  Some of these calling are gentle and gradual, while others are loud screaming in your ears!  My most recent calling did not start out as a whisper, but as if I were thrown into a bathtub of ice cubes and forced to listen!

I am being called to support other mothers in their quest to recreate their idenity and reclaim their MOJO! When I became a mother my world as I knew it was turned upside down. I never struggled more. I lived for years in a fog, and when the haze was lifted…there it was, my calling. I don’t even know how it happened really. Most likely because I didn’t resist it. I listened, followed my intuition and let myself be guided. The only way I can describe it is how an artist or a writer creates a peice and almost doesn’t remember doing it. The creativity was flowing through me from somewhere else. I remember describing at the time like something was physically pulling me in this direction. It was so strong that I couldn’t ignore it.

I found myself without hesitation enrolling in a coaching certification program, and started to build my business. The pull was so intense that I never questioned my decisions or doubted my calling. During this begining period I remember not being able to sleep or concentrate on anything else until I would stop and listen to the ideas, words and energy which was pulsing through me. I am a great sleeper and I can’t tell you how many times I had to get out of bed and write my ideas down (it was driving my husband crazy)!
As I have flowed along with my calling, I am now starting to get another…to write a book about my experiences of becoming a mother. I will be driving down the road and chapers, words and memories are flying around so fast and furiously that I have to stop the car and write. I have to add that I AM NOT A WRITER! I have never had an interst or a talent. But… the universe is telling me otherwise…
Thank you for addressing this topic! I have brought it up a few times with friends and they just don’t get it. It is a true experience to behold!
