How do you know if the job you want to have is the right job for you? If you have pursued an avocation, say, like swimming because you love the water and you love to swim, then you know that swimming is for you. But, what if you set out to be an entertainment lawyer in Hollywood and you ended up being a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles County? Would you consider that to be doing what you love to do?
As we evolve through our lives, many of us experience a variety of challenges that calls into the question for us to change direction in order to do what we love to do and make a living at it. A woman in Texas grew up wanting to be a performer. Her mom had a beauty shop in their home. The hood hair dryers were in the garage. When there were several women with the dryers making those awful hood dryer noises drying their hair and drowning out sounds, this woman, as a girl then, sung and danced for them. She ended up on a New York theater stage telling funny stories as a stand up comedienne.
