Change is Inevitable…
But, HARD WORK!
It’s the first day of fall, and congrats you made it this far! Yesterday, after a great time with friends once I got home I decided to lay down on the couch to fall asleep to Netflix. I wasn’t successful with that plan at all, but something else better took place!
As I laid there scrolling on my phone, I kept thinking “Wow it’s the last day of fall and I made it. Thank you Lord.” Before I knew it I went all the way back to May in my camera roll on my phone. I posted a few big memories in my Instagram Stories to share what I was proud of. I left my medical assisting job May 31st due to be extremely unhappy there. I went on a couple trips in July (Chicago and the Bahamas). I began to create and plan my first event, that I had been dreaming of for years!
I changed my mind a million times. I contacted a lot of venues. I failed at landing any sponsorships. But, I did it. 35 women gathered by simply trusting and believing in my vision. Can we say proud and grateful?!
What had the biggest impact? Meeting the people that I did! I went to a dinner one evening, that I was invited to by a young lady I had seen around. I didn’t think I would hit it off with anyone. Now she is a friend I can depend on, and send memes to! Once I met her, I met several other like minded, intelligent, and humble people, that I believe are lifetime friends!
This summer was amazing. I went into 2019 extremely hurt. I was dumped, and ghosted. I was devastated. I felt ugly and discouraged. So I don’t share this to brag, but to testify that life does get better! Don’t be afraid to show up for yourself through it ALL. I had a lot of rough days that made me want to quit! But, on this first day of the fall season of 2019 I feel completely transformed! Sure there are things I still have to work on when it comes to my future (career and finance wise), but I’m blessed to have the lessons, tools, and people to be by my side!
Happy Fall, beautiful!
