What Is Enough

Especially in our current legal landscape, finding jobs, let alone employment that feels fulfilling, can be difficult. Crafting your career to be expressive of who you are can also be tough. And yet, there is no shame in not knowing what lies in store for us.

As I work through all of this myself, I notice how nourishing it can be to share feelings and experiences instead of keeping them bottled up. I’ve also noticed that sometimes it’s hard to believe that working harder is not what I need to be doing, and that being present is all I can do.

Trusting that being present is enough takes a huge leap of faith, but it also seems like an important part of my growth process. It has to do with easing up the pressure I put on myself and the judgment I throw my own way all the time. It has to do with believing that who I am and what I have invested in life so far will pay off. I can’t know what the future holds, but if I can be here right now I’ve gained something. And the rest will come.

Feel free to comment if you can personally relate or are interested in sharing your fear, your love for the unknown or anything in between…

    It’s lovely that you offer your most vulnerable self here. I often find the most strength in people who occupy a space of radical trust because radical trust is the only platform that promotes radical transformation. You simply cannot have the greatness your life is intended for by pursuing any carved-out paths. Lawyers usually jump on the bar exam train without any reflection about what they will do with their licenses. I hope you continue to question and challenge any rigid ideals of what you “should” be or do with your law degree and allow yourself to find your own personal greatness. I believe in you!
