August has arrived! The month of my birth and usually my favorite month of the year. This August, however has not proven to be its usual light and fun filled month. I remain in a state of free flow, furiously applying for new career opportunities...and being turned down over and over again.
This August instead of celebrating my birth, I am actually being re-born! The process of job interviewing has made me examine who I really am and what I really want. It's been an exercise in finding out what I don't want and what doesn't work for me anymore.
Granted, it is good to know what you don't want. But, I am focused now on what I and my heart really wants. What I want is to use my "medical" knowledge and skills with my most recent marketing, business development, event planning and non profit fundraising experiences. I want to create a position for myself that will allow me to grow and most of all, make the world that I live in a better place. That is a tall order indeed!
All that being said, I have been led to several positions in the budding cannabis industry here in San Diego. To clarify, cannabis is legal here in San Diego both as medicine and as a recreational substance. Although it is legal right now, there are many regulations still pending on its sale and it is still against the Federal law. What is for certain is that the cannabis industry is in its infancy stage and has enormous growth potential. San Diego Magazine focused on the growth of the industry in its latest issue.

So as I venture into this new frontier, I thought I'd start out with the basics of why I and many others believe in the healing power of CBD oil and cannabis. Before you take a look at the infographic, I highly suggest that you drop all your old beliefs and fears about cannabis. It's proven to heal without addictive and destructive side-effects.
I will keep you up to date on my job hunt and whether my purpose involves cannabis or not. For now, I trust that I am being led to my highest purpose. I listen to my intuition which is that small still voice inside of myself, which keeps telling me not to fit in or to settle for less than I deserve! Are you listening to what your intuition is telling you? If not, you're missing out on the many secrets the universe has to share with you! Namaste:)
