Your vocation is that which lies at the the very core of your identity. There are particular moments in life, perhaps when you experience something, meet someone, hear some words which touch that deep core within, and it resonates. And you say – Oh – that’s who I am, or that’s what I want to do or be in life. Sometimes you forget it, or you try to put it out of your mind, if it doesn’t fit in with other plans. But it usually comes back, and deep down, you just know that it’s truly who you are meant to be.
