Wild Hope takes its name from a poem called The Summer Day by Mary Oliver. In this evocative piece, she poses the profound invocation: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” The first part of discovering your vocation invites recognition of its wild and hopeful nature. The second part, also mentioned in this quotation, encompasses the depth of planning that goes into such all-encompassing life decisions. Deliberate, thoughtful exploration and discovery is an important part of finding a vocation. Unearthing your vocation, while not directly mentioned in the quote above, also involves deep and sincere listening—making space to be still and pay attention to the questions that give direction to your life. Vocational calls come in many forms, and it is only through attentive exploration that we develop the capacity to hear them.
