I know it has been so long since I last wrote, but there have been so many changes in my life. I wanted, and needed, to make some major changes, and when I was feeling low, opportunity came knocking at my door!
I was feeling so down and broken. I was so stressed out with my living situation and my job and all I could think about was making a change. I needed to make something happen. But, when nothing was going my way, I began to feel frustrated, but I refused to give up hope. My faith carried me through, and after a lot of praying and asking God for direction, a new job opportunity which would require me to move to an area that I was trying to move to anyway, literally fell in my lap. I went for the interview, and was offered the job on the spot! Again, accepting the job would mean moving and leaving my family, and I wasn't sure how I felt about that. It was bittersweet. But I knew that I would only be 3 hours from home and that I would still be able to visit without it being such a long trip. So...I accepted the job, and I moved a little over a week ago! I started my new job, and I am staying with my cousin for a month, or two, until I get on my feet. I'm giving myself two months to save up some money and then I will look for my own place. I am so excited about that!!!
I'm a happier person just being here. Everything is so laid back, and everyone is always so pleasant that I feel right at home. I feel like a weight has been lifted and like I'm really enjoying my life for the first time in a very long time. I have stepped outside of my comfort zone and I am working a job that I don't have much experience in, but I have caught on quickly and I am truly loving what I do for a living. It's amazing what can happen when you give it to God and release the control you think you have over your life!!! I literally feel like a different person. God is Good!
I do miss my family, but I am looking forward to seeing them in a few weeks. Especially my niece and nephew! I miss them terribly, but this was something that needed to be done, and I am so grateful that I possess the strength and courage to just step out on faith, and go! I don't worry about what will happen because I know this is where I'm supposed to be. This is just another stop on my journey!!!
I appreciate all the love and concern, and asking for new blog entries! That really means a lot to me! I will continue with the blog, hopefully more regularly, and write about all of the new things going on in my life. Until then....
Peace & Love
