For the last several months, my life has been full of change. Change of attitude, change of beliefs, change of direction and change of behavior.
It's an odd thing really because it's not always dramatic or easily seen on the outside. But inside, almost every step has been taken with fear. Not really fear of the step itself, but fear of the step after that. If I go visit someone at the hospital today...what am I going to have to do tomorrow? Visit someone at prision?
Then what??

I've been praying alot (another change) lately about just where my career should go and where my life should go. I think the answer is just to do the next thing...just be faithful to the thing that comes up next and do that. Eventually, I'll sort out what the path was.

I think this gapingvoid cartoon describes it pretty well though it's sometimes hard to remember.

Quotable Quotes

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy." Dale Carnegie

This has become my motto as I start the process of looking for work again.
The last year has been full of so many changes in my attitude towards money, my role as a contributor to a community and learing to trust other people and I guess ultimately God for my provision.
Although I would love to be working in the non-profit field in some form, I don't think the timing for me is right. There's some ways that I think my income can go further and do more good if I'm contributing to some other people's lives with it.
It's not about tithing, but about being a contributing member of a community that I'd come to understand is important.

I feel motivated this time, not just by the fear of becoming skint, but also by a desire to make an impact in the world through not only volunteer time, but monetarily as well.

Before, I was motivated by always trying to move up in my career. Take on harder and harder roles to prove myself somehow. Now, I just want to work, make money and pour it back into the groups I support. Kingdom economics I suppose some would say...
