In some ways, I am still searching for my true niche in writing. I am passionate about grace, about identity, calling, and the power of story in our lives. Encouragement, social media, creativity and writing are also big passions for me, which I write about from time to time.
In the past, and the recent present, I’ve been hugely frustrated by this. I watched friends find their voice and niche and kept getting frustrated at my inability to find mine despite numerous failed attempts.
As a friend pointed out, when you’re someone who wants to make a difference, when you’re not sure how to do this, it can be frustrating.
At my office, there are several people who have been working for the company for years. Those who have been at the same pay grade, doing the same job, at the same level, for 30 years. And it may be this was the furthest they could get with their abilities. But often it’s because they either haven’t found their true calling, lost confidence they can make a difference in the world and just want some form of security, or like where they are so much they never want to leave.
Do you know people like this?
And are you in danger of living like this?
