Happy St. Patty’s Day Dolls & Gents!
It’s been an AMAZING week for me! I couldn’t wait to let y’all in on what’s been going on, so you ready??
I actually decided to leave my job a few weeks ago mostly due to the fact that I desperately wanted to pursue something that aligned more with my field and passion. Most people thought I was crazy for leaving such a great position when I didn’t have ANYTHING to fall back on. Now, common sense would tell most people to wait until another job offer is on the table before pursuing something else, right? But you know what they say–common sense just ain’t so common! LOL
Listen, I just had to leave.
It’s really hard for me to explain, but something was pulling me and faith kept pushing me. Regardless of what most people thought, I knew I would be okay. There have been so many times in my past where I’ve lost sight of the fact that God’s love for me is immeasurable. Luckily, I’m now at a place in my life where nobody can tell me that God doesn’t have my back. Leaving my job took a lot of courage, but I never saw it as just “leaving my job.” I saw it as a FAITH MOVE.
Two days before I had my final day of work, I received a call from a magazine that I applied to for an internship position. Another main reason I wanted to leave my previous job was also due to the fact that I wanted something permanent, rather than temporary. So an internship obviously wasn’t in the cards for me. But come on, writing for a magazine?? That’s literally been my ultimate goal for years! So internship or no internship–there was just no way I could pass up the opportunity.
But anyhoo, back to the story..
So I got the call to come in for an interview and I was beyond excited. However, It still wasn’t registering to me what was actually happening and what God really had in the works for me. A week later, I did the interview and I moved forward to phase 2 of the process. The long and short of it–after sitting around in the house for almost 3 weeks being unemployed, I received a call last week letting me know that I received the internship! I actually started this past Monday and I’ve never been so happy. It’s so surreal to me.
It’s everything I could have ever imagined and so much more. It’s also way more than just an internship for me. I’m definitely going to ensure to work my hardest in order to either get a permanent position or move on to something even greater. There’s no limits to where God can take me and I believe that all things truly do work together for good.
I really hope my testimony can inspire and help someone who needed to know that God’s got you, always. Keep him at the forefront of everything you do and let him know your heart–your fears, your desires and your dreams. He’ll be with you every step of the way and he’ll see to it that his promises to you will come to past.
