Passion: Part 2

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and life assessment, trying to work out what it is I want to do with my life.  What am I passionate about, and (ideally) can I turn that passion into a career and earn from it?

I have worked out that I am interested in and feel importance in the fields of:

  • Childbirth and childhood development
  • Women – issues, rights and empowerment
  • Technology – specifically computers/IT/webdesign

I had thrown around the idea, after having Emmett, of training to become a doula.  I could probably extend this to being a childbirth educator as well.  I don’t necessarily want to become a midwife, because that involves general nursing training too and I don’t think I’m up for that.  I also certainly want to be involved in women’s rights (particularly reproductive and body autonomy rights).

I’m going to have to think long and hard, as it’s not something I can just start and give up halfway through – it’s something I’m going to have to stick with.

Just thoughts, as I’m thinking them – probably not cohesive but mneh.

I'm Terri. I am a certified incubator, accomplished childbearer and working on my degree in housewifery. I also hold qualifications in pet ownership. I am of the Tasmanian variety, Pagan by religion, 28 by years, and prefer constant change of my environment over stagnation. I still can't get my shit together when it comes to a career, so currently I work from home.

    I feel you. I’m lucky that one of my passions, web dev, has panned out to be a rather lucrative career for me, but lately I’ve really enjoyed design and flexing my creative muscles. I’ve thought about taking it a bit more serious, but it’s the sort of thing I’d have to really commit to and I’m still waffling about it a bit.

    Hope you find something for your passion! I think you would make a great childbirth educator.

    Finding your passion is a tricky thing. It’s something that’s hit me quite recently. There are so many things I enjoy, but have always suffered from being a jack of all trades and master of none. I kinda figured it’s something that finds you, in some cases. Good luck with finding your passion!
