hey yall.. I guess I would just like some ideas or suggestions on what I should do. Im tryna figure out what career I should chose. I even went to a workshop for career exploration and it didn’t help. I had a teacher once tell me, if I could wake up and do any job in the world without worry about pay and other factors that is what I should do. If I could do anything I think I would like to heal people with art. Like some sort of art therapist or recreational therapist, however I’ve been doing my research and realized the wage is very low and the job availability is low too. I think I just want to do something creative that is stable and will allow me to make a good living. Any ideas?
Trust your intuition. You may find the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estés helpful – ‘Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype’
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
Open the door and walk through
“I hope you will go out and let stories, that is life, happen to you, and that you will work with these stories… water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
