W-a-D Event Day 1: Vocation

https://mydecadelongtravels.wordpress.com/word-a-day-event/

Welcome to the first day of the WORD-A-DAY event … If you want to share and take part in the event feel free to read the full instruction here  (or click the badge) and share as many word as you can — for 365 days or 52 weeks or 12 months 🙂

You can either define it, translate it (if it’s a foreign language), you can use it to express your feelings, tell story and / or describe it in pictures.

Once you’ve finished describing the word you chose, do a ping back to this post and visit other participants and “like” or “comment” on their work. 


For the first word I choose 

Vocation 

vōˈkāSH(ə)n/
noun
a strong feeling of suitability for a particular career or occupation
: a strong desire to spend your life doing a certain kind of work (such as religious work)
: the work that a person does or should be doing
It’s from the title of the book I am currently reading LET YOUR LIFE SPEAK:Listening to the Voice of Vocation, by Parker J. Palmer and already I can identify with his journey of finding his place in the world.
“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.” (Parker J. Palmer)


Don’t forget to do a ping back 


Watch out for tomorrow’s word.  Thank you participating
