A Quote for Comfort

marianne williamson quote I've got a few ideas for my debut post here on The Niche Movement. Thoughts about how to nail down what you want to do, about how your career path will most likely not be what you thought, about my personal career journey. But honestly, none of those are resonating with me right now -- and my best writing comes when my heart is locked in with the topic.

So today, I'd like to share a passage that's resonating with me right now. It's from The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles by Marianne Williamson in a chapter titled "Job vs. Calling."

"If you're kind to people, if you're compassionate, if you pour your excellence into whatever you're doing, then you're doing the job God sent you to do. From that will emerge the next form that's needed to host the energies you're bringing forth."

Earlier on the page she says: "...our value, individually, is determined not by what we do but by the consciousness with which we do it."

What I love most about this post, and why it resonates with me right now, is the "from that will emerge" piece. Essentially it says that the next best way for you to use your gifts and talents will present itself to you. You don't have to push, you don't have to force it. You just have to trust that if you show up and use your gifts and talents wherever you are, the next right step will present itself to you.

I hope these passages provide you comfort, acknowledge that if you're doing good work in the world with intention, you're on the right track, even if you're not "there" yet.
