I stumbled upon the counseling profession gig. It was a moment of epiphany, mind you. Still, stumbling is stumbling.
Once upon a time, I was in an entirely different profession. One day while having lunch with a colleague he shared with me that he was thinking of changing careers. Either he was going to take an offer to be the Tennis Pro at a country club or go back to school to become a Counselor. Aha!- the light bulb went off. That is what I want to do. BE a School Counselor. Hence, the start of my path down This Counselor's Journey.
Education is what drives me and bestows me with a sense of purpose (Outside of my family, of course). It provides me focus, a place to put my creative energy. It is one of the things I am here to do. It is a calling that comes naturally. I was lucky to have stumbled upon this profession.
What have you stumbled upon?
