"The secret of success is to make your vocation your vacation." - Mark Twain
The last month of school in my religion class was dedicated to vocations. I was blown away by how much content and "good stuff to know" I learned throughout the process! And just for you all, I have a whole notebook stocked full with quotes, thoughts and other randomness about vocations and other people’s vocational journeys. Just kidding, I had to take notes anyways. (I mean, it's school! What do you expect!)
But I learned throughout this process, how difficult and daunting this process can be. I mean, how can a 13 year old learn what to do with her life? But hopefully, through this Vocation Series, both you and I can learn how to answer this call from God thoroughly and with great joy and purpose.
When most young people (including me) think about vocation, they think about just about the main question. Will I be married? A priest? Single? A sister?
Yet, a vocation is so much more. A vocation is a direct call to holiness from God that will make you happy.
Key words- holiness, God, and happy.
To make your vocation your vacation, you must be happy.
What comes to mind when you think of a vacation? I always think of sleeping in, good food, nice hotels and my family around me.
Now what do you think of a vocation? Right now in my life, I think of a happy life covered with a fog of uncertainty because right now, I have no clue whatsoever what God is calling me to do in life. Well, maybe a little bit, but not much. :)
I bet most of you are in the same boat of "what should I do with my life". If so, please take this series to heart. If not, have fun (and learn from) looking at the confused people who are still deciding what to do with their lives. :)
So join me in trying to make your future vocation a vacation.
