Many of us question from time to time if we are in the right career or job especially when things don't go as we want them to. What I'm proposing here is that you can happily have a career or job which isn't what I will say is your calling. A calling I define as something you agreed to do in this lifetime such as being a healer or carer for example. This, however, may not be the career or job that pays your bills but something you do in your spare time. Some of us do make a career out of being a healer or carer but this isn't necessarily everyone who is drawn to this. In this case what we need to find is meaning in our paid work, a belief that we make a difference. You spend a long time at work even if part-time and to have no meaningful focus within it is frustrating and can effect our health and well being. Asking yourself what you really want to do to earn money to keep you solvent and happy is important. Your calling whatever it is will naturally come to you as it was meant to be. If you are happy in your work this increases your energy and draws more good things to you. You manifest successfully from a place of calm and joy not frustration and resentment. Take time to question what job you would like to do to earn a living. Think of your career as a portfolio with several strands to it. One can be your calling whether or not you earn money from it. You don't have to do one thing for work and limit yourself.
If change happens in small incremental ways it becomes a long-term feature in your life. Change is always simmering under the surface waiting for an opportunity to bring growth and new opportunities. It just needs you to allow it to happen as resistance is what often brings us distress. Change can bring pleasure and joy in to your life but even that can be stressful if there's a lot of it happening at once. What you think about change or any event in your life colors your perception of it. Mindfulness practice can help you gain a wider perspective and also a calmness during times of change.
