Introducing myself and my journal: Learning to trust my inner voice

About Me:
I'm kjas, and I am a 30-year-old entrepreneur, woman who would like to make a mark on the world. Women's issues in particular is a passion of mine, though I have never presued a career in the area.

I grew up in the United States with the idea that I would go to college and graduate with a degree and then get a corporate job, work my way to the top and live happily ever after. Well I have done a few of those things. I acquired the degree, got a job, switched jobs for more money and have been slowly working my way up to the top in the course of 8 years. The problem is the happily ever after part.

From the moment I graduated from college, I felt like I wasn't being true to myself. I was taking positions and choosing work based on what my friends and sometimes what my family though was appropriate. Even more true, I have selected jobs, friends, cities in which I've lived, etc. based on the "American" ideal or someone else's idea of what I should be doing and what was going to make me happy and fufilled. All the while I was forgetting to actually listen to my inner voice and discover what would make me happy and how to apply my God-given gifts to the world.

It has taken me this long to realize that sick feeling in my stomach that I get every time I move to a city I don't want to be in or took a position that I knew would rob me of my passion rather than enhance it, is not just nerves. It is instead my inner tuition telling me I wasn't being true to myself and that it was time to really seek out what I am passionate about.

So this is where I am starting. I don't have a clue what it is I really want to do or how I can make a contribution to the world, but I am determined to figure it out. I have often wished I was one of those people who had a talent so obvious it would be undeniable. But alas, I am not and that is OK with me.

I'm a seeker, a traveler, a listener, a writer, a teacher, a counselor, I have so much empathy, I believe in education, especially for women and children, I want to be at a higher level of consciousness, I want to see the world. I want to see the world's people thrive and have a chance. I want to run my own business and help women in business.

These are the thoughts that have run through my head non-stop in the last 2-3 years. I cannot deny them any longer. There are so many things I want to do and share with the world in hopes of finding happiness in helping others. Now on to the journey of making them happen.
