Something is calling you. You hear it but can’t quite see it. You feel it but can’t quite grasp it. It’s real but elusive, present but distant, within you but not yet part of you.
The calling exists on a higher level that requires a different path. Exciting to consider, scary to actually consider doing. It’s a deviation from what is familiar. It’s an elevation of what you’ve established. It’s a pull towards what feels possible encountering the friction of what feels realistic.
You hear this calling reaching out to you. It calls you to take the chance and chase the dream. It calls you to aim higher because you are capable. It calls you to dictate what you want from life rather than allow life to dictate for you.
It calls you to pursue your interests, maximize your gifts, and explore your perceived limits because you’ve set your limits too low. There is more for your life beyond your current experience. Your calling knows this.
Your calling comes from a place not entirely known or understood. Intuition, instinct, or interest. Fate, destiny, or design. A voice. A sensation. An awareness. A truth shrouded in doubt covered by insecurity concealed in an existing routine.
Your calling doesn’t get tired of trying to break through to you. It’s part of you. You just learn to stop answering when it calls. It will never stop. You’ve just learned to ignore it and bury it.
If you listen, you will hear the call. It may start small, but it leads to something big. Next time you hear it, pay more careful attention.
Answer the call. Do the work.
