According to Wikipedia a Multipotentialite is : a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life.

 

There is no “true calling” because these people thrive on the journey and the experiences. If they were stuck at a dead end job, it would drive them bonkers! I know this because for years…YEARS.. I thought I was crazy because I could not understand why is was so hard to just pick a career path and stick with it. I thought I needed to know during high school in order to go to college and receive a good degree within the field I wanted or thought I wanted. I had no clue then and I still have do not have a clue . I am almost thirty! One perfect example of this is the fact I am still in college figuring it out. I’d feel worthless. This is not to say I can not keep a job because I am perfectly capable but the problem is boredom. I have a tendency to daydream about adventures past, and those not yet authenticated as I have a vast array of interests that create this monstrous need for variety and change. I know a lot of people who can not take a lot of change but I thrive off it. In my opinion, change is the building blocks of character. Lessons are learned via change. My discovery of having a multipotentialite personality allowed me to be okay with who I am and not allow people to make me feel that I absolutely need to find a calling and stick with it. I am a pawn in this world to which God moves as he pleases. I love experiences and believe it paves the way for intriguing stories.  Besides that, I’ve realized no matter how high your education may be; experience is the requirement.

I’ve realized that I have a great deal of background in areas such as entertainment, radio broadcasting and promotions, administration, journalism, marine rehabilitation, skincare, mentoring and entrepreneurship. Everything that I have always wanted to build in since I was a little girl.  I am extremely grateful for every opportunity that I have had and will continue to have.  Learning, exploring and mastering new skills  places me in this divergent category. It helps in lateral thinking as well. I have the ability to shift into different thought modes to better understand circumstances and groups of people. I am able to take on many hats because sticking to one thing becomes unappealing to me. I have a passion for diving into new disciplines and great enthusiasm to follow. I want to keep believing that my “wondering” mind is valuable. In these moments I think about what it says in Proverbs; to trust in the Lord and not lean on your own understanding.  He will make your path. Proverbs 3

Indeed, he always has. Even in my short comings I know he has made a way for me.  Every time I thought I was worthless he continued to show me my value and remind me that I am also never useless. If you find yourself feeling worthless and thinking “who am I” and “what am I doing with my life” you may be a multipotentialite too.  Do not fear it.  Do not think you have no purpose. We have tons of purposes and the beauty of it is that we don’t need to search for it.

As Carrie Underwood so elegantly sung “This is my temporary home” ,  I am just passing through this world and know my true calling is to be with the creator of all things; a multipotentialite himself.
