A few of my facebook buds posted this link and it’s a very insightful little read:
The bit about public schools is extra-interesting to me, since my mother was a teacher and my kids are now “entering the system”. My experience is probably similar to most everyone else’s: did just fine in school, went to college for this degree, ended up doing something else. Of course, what I do to pay the bills still isn’t 100% aligned with who I am as a person. I haven’t taken that leap yet! But I do have mountains of respect for those friends of mine who struck off the beaten path to follow their “Element”. That takes some courage.
Then, some of my other friends/family have gravitated towards a career that both pays the bills and fits their creative Element. I’m very happy for those fortunate individuals – well played!
Anyway, if you’re reading my blog, you know I’ve already found my Element — isn’t it time you found yours? (if you haven’t already)
Go out there and kick some ass, people! 🙂
