Finding Me

I’m at a cross roads.

I mentioned in a travel post about the recent psychic fair in Kitchener, Ontario that I saw someone who really talked about me and overcoming obstacles. It was honestly the best $60 I could’ve spent but it has really opened my mind to the possibility that I’m not using my skills to the best of my abilities.

Since posting that I went to the psychic fair, I’ve had a lot of people ask me what was said and what happened. The truth is the entire reading, if you can call it that, was about me. One thing that stood out the most was that I wasn’t using my skills and passions to get where I need to be in my life.

It’s amazing how putting my name and birthdate in a computer could so easily pinpoint this exact thing.

I am talented. This was the main item that stuck with me from the talk. My main focus in life should be Optimism, which also means that I am creative. There are some obstacles to being talented and creative. One of mine, which is huge, is that I have the ability to get distracted very easily when I’m working on something creative.

I’ve always said “I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.” I think this is part and parcel to with my type. I am creative. I love to write, to take pictures, to create. I enjoy painting and poetry and crafting. I like reading and sharing. I love telling stories. It is no wonder that my blog is broken up into so many categories!

Here is a breakdown of my 6 archtypes where each one has a different purpose in life.

  1. Optimism – Intuitive gift for creation, artist, author, performer with a mission to uplift and inspire
  2. Originality – Pioneering inventor
  3. Insight – Psychic Counselor, confidant, diplomat, peace maker
  4. Reflection – A gifted ability to suck up the information and formulate a new philosophy of life, problem solve some of humanities biggest problems
  5. Empowerment – A natural teacher, mentor, helper
  6. Transformation – An activist, a seeker of truth and justice

All of these things made so much sense. He told me it is what makes me unique to have the exact combination of what I have. There is no one like me.

This was a key for me. A key to open up the cross roads. No one compares to me, but some people will be interested in what I do. I need to find my audience.

There are moments in my life where I felt like I was doing the right thing to keep me happy. But over time, obstacles come in my way and I’ve either burned out or moved on and never gone back. I need to figure out where I want to be and go after it. I need to find my audience for whatever it is that I am creating.

The fun will now come when I try out all my interests and figure out what path I want to take. Maybe eventually I’ll even figure out what I want to be when I “grow-up.”
