A session with a client this week brought me back to that moment. She has been working the same job for the past 6 years. The first couple of years it was something that she really enjoyed and she went to work every day feeling inspired. The past two years have not been so easy for her. She described it as numbing. She just goes to work out of habit and finds no enjoyment in it. She feels stuck and without a clue of which direction to take to move forward. Part of the issue is that although she is really good at what she does she no longer feels passionate about the type of work she does. Wisely rather than just switching to a job in her same field she decided to do some soul searching to figure out what the next move in her career should be and that is how she found me. In the beginning she seemed almost skeptical. In her mind she’d done the same type of work for so long that she had a hard time seeing that there were other options. As we discussed the work that a 22 life path values her eyes lit up. It was as if she changed before my eyes. She has long held the dream of creating programs for musicians and artists who feel like outcasts or have addiction issues to heal. She’s pushed this dream and the things she loves such as music and reading aside to spend time building her career. But she doesn’t feel like she’s getting back from her career all that she’s putting into it and says that she goes home feeling too tired and numb to remember the things that were once important to her.
Remembering her dream and having some listen to it in support seemed to wake her up. It was if a well was open and gushing out of her were ideas of new directions she could take in her career. I look forward to working with her and supporting her during this transition.
