Smarty Pants

Today's topic for the Blog Everyday in May Challenge: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at.

I struggled with this topic at first. {Gee, how lame. It's only Day 2 and I'm already struggling!} I have never thought I was really 'good' at anything. Womp, womp. I don't say that to be a sad sack, but for the longest time I never felt like I'd found my calling in life. Sure I have an amazing job, but it isn't really a 'career' for me. I'm not a stellar athlete {stop laughing, B}, not a great cook, my musical talent is nil, not artistic or creative...I'm just so-so. But hit me. Something about which I am becoming extremely passionate. Something I hope to someday turn into a career. Something I haven't shared with many people.

I think I know a lot about natural childbirth. I mean...I know I did it...but that's not what I mean. I have developed a LOVE for natural childbirth and that community. If I were 18 and knew what I know now, I think I'd train to become a midwife. I am still eating up information about it. 

So that's probably not super new or shocking. Here's the part where I tell you my secret. I want to become a lactation consultant and a natural childbirth educator. Maybe a doula... I don't know when it's going to happen or what it'll take to get there or how the path will eventually develope, but it is definitely what I see as a part of my future. Something that I know a lot about and WILL most definitely be good at!

P.S. - Drew's 4 month post will probably be up later today or tomorrow after her checkup. Happy 4 months, Baby Gurl!!!

What a wonderful thing to feel like you found your calling. You can do it too! Too bad you weren't a lactation consultant 18 months ago - I could've used you! AP

It's awesome that you know what you want to do. I'm still trying to figure that out!
