why life’s twists and turns are worth it

When I was younger, I felt the need to plan every aspect of my life. I planned to go to college to become a social worker. I also planned to get straight A’s in college, but that didn’t quite happen, either.
However, what actually happened was much more exciting! After struggling through college for seven years, I learned to cope with stress and manage my time. I was also challenged to start accepting myself, write a killer essay, and manage negative emotions.
Also, I met some amazing people and got the chance to mentor other blind students on campus. I laughed, I cried, and I struggled my way to my degree. Oh, and I was also doubting my decision to be a social worker.
After graduation, my doubts continued to grow. I knew that I wanted to explore spiritual work as a psychic or a coach, but I didn’t even know where to begin. Could I run my own business? Should I find a mentor, and how would I explain my career decision?
I tried to put off my ambitious business plans until I received my masters degree. However, something happened while I was filling out my grad school applications. While I can usually write an essay without difficulties, I felt completely blocked! Now, I know that I was not being true to myself. Several months later, I received a rejection letter from my first-choice school, but I ignored that sign. I began to apply for jobs, and I was rejected by every single agency. Yikes! The universe was working overtime to get my attention. Meanwhile, I was still receiving messages from spirits, but I was determined that I would only work as a psychic because I didn’t think that I could ever be “good enough” or “enlightened enough” to work as a medium.
I was encouraged and inspired to start a business by my current coach and mentor, so that’s what I did. Yes, there have definitely been some bumps along the way, and there were definitely times when I felt so frustrated that I was ready to give up. However, the journey was definitely worth it, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
