Volunteering to find out what to do in life

Ok, now that school has started, a gazillion volunteering opportunities knocked at my door. Of course, I don’t have to take on any of it if I don’t want to. But I want to.

I want to get involved at my kid’s school and have the chance to see them at school. And, if I’m going to stay home, I might as well go all out! Right now, I feel somewhat overwhelmed as I have signed up for so many things that I have something almost every day. I was thinking of taking it down a notch but then I thought, maybe there’s some opportunities for me here…

Since I’m deep in reflections about what direction to take my life next, it’s not a bad idea to spend time doing different things. I think I’d like to teach. Helping out during a class, reading a book at the library or even giving a talk on something can only be a good way to try that out. I think I’d like to be a photographer and work with multimedia. I sure am about to find out if I’d like to do more of that as I will be taking hundreds of pictures at the school events. At the very least, it will improve my photography skills.

Now, got to find time to do all this…

    So, what happened with that career management assessment thingy? Was it inconclusive?
    Volunteering is a good thing, as long as you don’t overextend yourself. The stay-at-home lifestyle should benefit your family, not rob them.
    As far as feeling unsettled, wondering what to do next, I went through that process over the last year. I found a book that was extremely helpful. Here is my review: http://arhtisticlicense.com/2015/07/01/what-is-my-calling/
    I wish you the best in whatever direction life leads you.
