Writing as a calling

It seems like more and more I feel that I want to be a writer. It’s actually good because before I didn’t know what I want to be. I still have a lot of interests but it seems like that is the way my heart leads me.

I remember I asked for a prayer and advice from one of my friends or mentors about calling in my life. I told him I feel confused and don’t know what to do with myself. After some time of prayer he said the best advice I could ever get. He said the magic words that didn’t make sense to me at that time but make perfect sense now. Are you ready to hear? He said: “I feel like you should just try things.” I was kind of disappointed because I wanted to hear something like you are a full-time rat catcher 🙂 or anything else but specific. That would be a disaster; I would rebel against it even if it would be the greatest vocation on the face of the Earth. I had to try things to find out myself and see where my heart leads me. And now looking back I can say I knew it all along. It’s something I would do even if I wouldn’t get paid or get published.

Now I am not getting my hopes high or anything. I learned that the best things achieved when conceived without high hopes and expectations. I just think I will try to develop some of the writing skills and see where that leads.

    That’s what did too. I’m happy in my “real” job, and confident in my writing. Maybe it isn’t perfect, but it’s a good life, and I love living it.

    Thank you for your comment. I am just coming to realization of what or who I am and have long road in front of me. And even if I am mistaken now I know how to look for it next time.
