My entire life I always wanted to be an RN or Surgeon. I remember watching medical shows on Channel 11 when I was a young girl and was very intrigued with some of the things I saw. My father always told me to be an RN and I knew I wanted to help others, I just wasn't sure how I would satisfy that desire to help. I joined the Health Care Industry at 20 years old and began as a Medical Assistant/Phlebotomist and the Patient Care was very satisfying and I was very good at making others feel better. It was natural for me to connect with patients/ people etc. I still didn't have the courage to attend school for RN, so during my time as a Phlebotomist, I stumbled across a position through a Co-Worker called Medical Technologist. (MT) I attended school and today it has been 13 years since I worked as a Medical Technologist, giving me a total of 21 years in Health Care.

The Healthcare Industry has been very satisfying for me, however, I still felt like I was missing something so I decided to enroll in school for RN even after I received my B.S in Health Information Management. To make a long story short, I was no longer my priority, my son Shemar was and I didn't want to sacrifice him any longer, so I decided to leave school and focus on raising him.

As a Medical Technologist (MT), some of my day-to-day duties include complex analysis of microscopic, immunologic, biologic, bacteriologic, hematologic, chemical tests and their results. Some of my tasks might include:

  • Preparing cultures of tissue samples
  • Establishing and monitoring programs that ensure data accuracy
  • Microscopically examining slides of bodily fluids
  • Cross-matching blood for transfusions
  • Chemically analyzing blood or urine for toxic components
  • Analyzing lab reports for accuracy
  • Operating and calibrating equipment
  • Delivering test results to physicians, researchers or patients
  • Collecting and studying blood samples to determine morphology

To summarize this, I analyze body fluids in an effort to assist physicians in diagnosing and treating patients. Pretty complex, pays well and always something new to learn, but, not what my heart has desired all these years. However, as a MT, I have the opportunity to help save lives. In essence, "helping" has always been my passion.

Up until 4 years ago, I was still living with some sense of emptiness in regards to fulfilling my destiny, I knew there was something else I should have be doing. Back in 2008, I was introduced to Public speaking through a friend (Jerrie Mason) and I realized during that speaking engagement, I had a natural talent for speaking publicly and making a connection with others. There was no fear, no stage fright, just pure confidence and gratification. What's more, I didn't receive any monetary compensation and I was still satisfied. The next year in 2009, Perfectly Planned was written, published and released in 2010. My first book and has lead me to exactly what my heart has desired, Public Speaking and Inspiring others. Writing is fantastic, but Public Speaking, is the ULTIMATE HIGH for me. I have found my Passion.

What is Passion? A STRONG liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept. Notice the word 'Strong' is in Caps.  

I enjoy writing and expressing  myself, but I LOVE Speaking Publicly, making a connection with others, and by doing so, I have the opportunity to 'Help', 'Save a life' or 'Positively Impact Someone's Life'. In essence it adds up to me sharing my experience, knowledge and or life's lessons with others in an effort to Build, Encourage, Inspire and Empower others. I am Living In My Passion, or often referred to as having 'Found One's Calling'. How do I know this is my calling? Not only do I have a Passion for it, but I will do it for FREE. My reward is that someone's life has been enriched simply by me Speaking and Sharing my Life. No amount of money can compare to that emptiness in my heart that has finally been fulfilled. The gratification that I receive from helping others is what makes me who I am. I live to Enrich others. I live to Empower and Inspire, I live to Positively Change Lives. This is what GOD has given me, this is my GIFT, my Calling, my Passion, my Destiny.  Some may not accept, believe it or even be interested in hearing me speak, but again, this is what the LORD has set for me. 

Over these next few years, I will get better and my audience will become larger and I will Positively Impact a million lives. Sounds like too much? Not for GOD and Not for ME. I believe in me and my Passion for Writing, Speaking and Changing Lives for the better. 

Many of us are no where near Living In Our Passion, we are simply doing what we stumbled across, or doing what pays well, or just doing. It becomes habitual or comfortable living in the position we are in. I believe if Jerrie Mason had not invited me out 4 years ago, I may not have ultimately found my passion. Who knows, maybe or maybe not, at any rate, I found what many people never find, DESTINATION or PASSION. We all have a purpose, destiny or calling in life and that is the Passion that GOD has given us, our TALENT or our GIFT. I must say it is a blessing to feel complete satisfaction after sharing my life via a Speech or Writing. I wanted to be an RN or Surgeon and I am, the only difference is instead of healing with my hands, I heal or help using my LIFE, HEART and SOUL and I am compelled to do it.

There are several signs to know if you are Living In Your Passion..

  1. You will do it for Free
  2. You eat, sleep and drink it
  3. You have a complete sense of satisfaction afterwards
  4. You are fulfilled 
  5. If you are paid, the amount doesn't matter
  6. There is nothing more you would rather do
  7. There is nothing else you want to do, other than elevate 

If you experience several of the listed signs then you are LIVING IN YOUR PASSION, there are more signs, however, I chose to list those. The most important is number 1.
If you are not experiencing any of the signs, I suggest you listen to that inner voice, have faith and get started. Live out the dream that GOD has set for you, find yourself, this is all a part of your Destiny. Some of us are not meant to be Financially Rich, but we are ALL meant to Spiritually Rich, sometimes we just never accomplish it.

Needless to say, there are many famous, wealthy, rich individuals or otherwise in the world who are not Fulfilled, why, because Fulfillment has NOTHING to do with money, but it has everything to do with Finding Your True Self, Reaching Your GOD Given Destiny and Living in Your Passion. Today is your day, discover your PASSION and LIVE IN IT.

I hope youenjoyed my Blog,

Thank You

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
