Over the weekend I had a chance to hang out with my (very awesome) parents. Josh and I took them to this little 1950’s style diner in Venice beach.
The kind of place with James Dean posters on the wall, where you can get a real chocolate ice cream soda and outstanding homemade apple pie.
My dad said, “Remember that time you called us crying because you wanted to quit your job on Wall Street, but you didn’t know what else you were supposed to do with your life? And remember what I told you? Doesn’t matter how long it takes. You got to find something you love. Look at you now…”Vocation is the place where our deep gladness meets the world’s deep need. - Frederick Buechner Click To Tweet
Yeah. I know that ‘find something you love’ may sound like trite advice, but I believe his words hold truth.
Because I knew in my heart that no matter what I wound up doing in my professional life, I’d work really, really hard to become the best I could be.
It made sense that if I was going to work that hard, I had to find something that really aligned with who I was as a human being.
