Frustration With How Things Are
The first sign that you may be experiencing a calling is that you feel extremely frustrated or pained by some aspect of the status quo. Of all the needs and injustices in the world, there's a particular one that keeps nagging at you and won't leave you alone. Maybe it's climate change or the needs of foster care children or women going through breast cancer. Or maybe you are pained by a need that you might judge as less important or dramatic: maybe you notice how many people could really use some style advice to beautify their homes or maybe you're pained by the inefficiencies at your office. All of these are valid, important callings that enrich and improve the world.
