Kind of Cheesy But I Agree

Okay, I could not help myself but watch Oprah Winfrey’s final show, and she said something that kind of struck me. She was speaking about callings and said that a calling is what lets you know that you are right where you’re supposed to me and in your own unique way illuminate the world. I won’t go as far as to say I illuminate anyone’s world…that is seriously too much ego for me. But, I would say that I know that my calling is Asatru

Many people ask me, why do you do what you do, and that is it, it is a calling! I feel that it is for me a passion that lights me up, which brings me peace and somehow a funny sense of belonging! I find that as a priest it is such as thrill to be in this life, it is a life that I never expected and one that sometimes even though I resent, I could not live without.

Perhaps it is truly a calling, it is what I am meant for, I am privileged to be in this position, it is not something that I ever thought would be my life…adding a daughter into my life was the most wonderful thing, even if it detracts from my kindred work, I think that the gods understand that thought! I have to say that for all those parents out there who are also organizers, I salute you! It is a unique struggle to balance family life and organization life and managing to use time wisely.

I think having a family even extends the concept of community closer, as you then have to include your children in the kindred community and from that they learn a lot about diversity, about working together, about sharing, respect, and get a lot of different people that they can interact with and learn.

In fact, having a kindred for kids is a great thing, it is a little community to which they belong, and that is really needed these days! It is nice to be part of something like that!
