Dream Jobs, contests and more dreams

Hi!
Wow! Overwhelming response on my last post, I was pleasantly surprised and had no idea it would touch so many people. I’m truly grateful for everyone who read it, thought it was good enough to share and passed it on. Thank you, It means a lot.

So today’s business! I saw this amazing contest on Modcloth and I just had to enter, I’m not really big on contests but this one looked like so much fun, and I already have and love Pinterest so I thought why not?
So I set about creating a board that reflected my dream job… Only problem was, I don’t really have one, I was only stuck for a few moments and while thinking about it I tweeted this- “Still don’t know what my dream job is or if it exists, but I know the random mish mash of things that make me happy and that’s OK :)” This comforted me while I tried to figure out what to put up.

I know that I’m highly creative, I know that I’m a helper, I love to learn and I love the study of the human mind. I know that I’d like to make a difference where it matters. Under these broad descriptions I could do a variety of things and I’m sure I have so much more to explore. I also know that it’s important you do something you enjoy and are good at. While the idea of not having a box to place myself in scares me a bit, it also greatly excites me.

For the competition I narrowed it down to teaching and being the creative director for my brand Natural Saturdays. It was so much fun creating the board just as I expected. What I didn’t expect was all the reflection it made me do. I’m glad. I keep getting inspired by the oddest things!


Here’s a snapshot of my entry

So do you have a job/career suggestion for me?
How about you? Do you have a dream job?
Tell me in the comments even if it’s “silly”

    You are one of the bubbliest people I know ( if reading your blog counts as knowing you), there’s something so positive about the way you write.

    You have so many gifts and interests and its great to see you put them all to use. Sometimes it seems like all I can do to hold down my day job, your blog inspires me to not neglect my other interests.

    wishing you all the best in your move back to the US, will be following your adventures here.
