What I Do Now

I am a huge "Organic" freak.  At the very least, I want my food, my home, and my body to be as natural as possible.  I shop for groceries at farmer's markets and the local farm stands.  I make my own body products.  I make my own cleaning supplies (or buy the "green" stuff when I'm really lazy).  What feels a little "off" in my life is working part-time in the financial services industry.

A few days ago, I started working another part-time position in a small, local health food store.  I feel like I am finally starting to move in the direction that I am intended to go.  It just feels right.  I still have the part-time financial services job, but it too is turning into something else.

A few days ago, while working in the financial services position, I called a client to see if he would like to come in for a portfolio review.  His wife told me that he had just passed away.  ugh.  To the gut.  It then struck me that, in that position, I am helping widows and widowers.  I can help them walk through the financial mess...the paperwork...and maybe provide them with the first glimpse of that flash of light.  Maybe.

My life feels pretty good right now.  On purpose.   I really like that.
