There's also a confidence thing, which I think is normal when jumping into any new endeavor. I've been doing this type of work for years, but not professionally and rarely for strangers. So there's this whole "can I really do this" thing going on under the surface.
All that changed last weekend though. A friend invited me to share a booth at a local street fair, and we spent a solid 3 days doing readings for dozens of people. Between the two of us we did over 150 readings, and the response was very positive. No, it was wonderful!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HELPING PEOPLE IN THIS WAY!
Despite almost 30 hours of work in 2.5 days and near 90 degree temperatures, I came home Sunday night feeling energized and ready for more!
Since then other things have diverted me - heck I'm not even posting this until today and it's Wednesday already! But I was so happy to do readings, talk to people, and really feel like I'm a positive influence in their life.
So the deal is sealed. I definitely know I jumped off the right side of the fence, and I can't wait to venture even further into my field of dreams :)
