Well….Still Trying to Figure This Out

Hi guys!

So…something I’ve been trying to figure out for a handful of years now is my vocation.

When I was younger, people used to say that I would make a good nun. Well, at that point, I just shrugged it off.

When I went to college, I began to consider more in depth of what my vocation might be.

For a while, I thought that I might be called to religious life. But when I reached out to a few different religious communities, I kept being turned away. So I figured that religious life isn’t the vocation that I’m being called to.

But since then, I haven’t been able to discern beyond that. I’m not sure if I’m being called to single life or married life. I can see the merits of both.

But I still go back and forth between the two.

I can see myself being a highly independent woman who can live on her own, take care of herself, and make her way to Heaven and help those around her on her own.

But I can also see the allure of having someone to take that journey with me. Someone who will help me get to heaven in a unique way. And a person I can do the same for.

Eventually, I think I will figure it out. But as of right now, I’m still on the fence.

Until next time!
