"What kind of profession are you interested in after college?" is the exact question posed to an 11 yr old student by their school counselor. The look on the student's face expressed they were clueless! Do many 11 year old's know what profession they are working towards? Swaying between interior design, teaching, banking, psychology, stay at home mom, real estate sales, singer, actor along with years of going in & out of college....... at thirty-seven I still remained clueless.
Those 37 years wasn't just cluelessness, but also a human on a journey. A journey that was not easy. It was filled with mental & emotional trauma, suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, divorce, depression, job loss, eating disorders, financial losses, severe illnesses of children and myself and much more. The best word to describe it is EXHAUSTING. I completely lost myself.
With the support of others who believed in me, my journey to self-empowerment began. They re-taught me how to forgive, heal, find my worth, believe & be devoted to it, re-connect with my authentic self, & be grateful for every single step taken to this very moment. I CHOSE to save it but needed help doing so.
My inhales now filled my entire body with ease. I can smell the aromas in the air again. My eyes were seeing more clearer that it caused complete stillness & shock as the beauty of it was if I just saw it for the first time. I felt, I loved sincerely, I became brave & strong. I was awakened & grounded. The light with in me was so bright that it was hard to rest. Opportunity after opportunity arrived that led me to a purpose driven life. A purpose that is fed by a passion to serve others by giving them hope, joy, and relief just like I receive.
The passion to serve others tugged at my heart so much it hurt. The more I ignored it, the more ill I would feel from suppressing it. It became very obvious that my passion was my purpose, that has now become my profession. So why don't some of us know at age 11 what we want our profession to be after high school or college? Sometimes we need to take a journey to discover our passion. We need to experience & learn before we can discover our passion.
Just because it isn't obvious what you want to do when you grow up or in the next season of your life, doesn't mean you have to be miserable or repeat the same path over again. You may be just a little lost & need someone to be of assistance to help you find your next journey. That is exactly what Jondrea Phelps, LLC is here for.
