Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: 05.06.2018

This week has been a mix of sadness, happiness, frustration, clarity, anger, disappointment, and hope. I’ve been praying and praying for God to provide me answers to some hard-hitting questions about my career choices and goals. Has he given me the answer albeit in a way that I really don’t like? I’ve been kinda preparing for a change anyway but who would’ve thought it would come this way because someone couldn’t keep up their end of the deal and I’m not talking about a specific someone if you get my drift. It’s disheartening having to start over when you didn’t want to or at least not right now. However, there is something that my friends and I always say to each other and it proves to be true even now, “Stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready”. Those words ring true especially in this day and time when nothing is certain or permanent. If people don’t like where they live or work they can move or quit and it’s not as big of a deal as it was in the 50s and 60s.

We are in a different day and time where relationships, friendships, careers are all up in the air. Companies are constantly “restructuring” leaving their employees unemployed or underemployed. Significant others are looking for their “soul mates” even if that involves doing it while they are still together. Things have changed and for better or worse change is good. With this huge change that has entered my life, I find myself searching for understanding but also putting in the work needed to ensure that I am constantly advancing. I have been mulling over this new potential career track for a while now even in college. Although I know ultimately I want to be a full-time or at least part-time blogger, I have career aspirations that require me to get an MBA along with some additional marketing experience. This next opportunity is strengthening another passion of mine, the desire to help, encourage, and to educate.

I’m preparing for the journey, I have no other choice but to. God, I just ask that you prepare me mentally, emotionally, and physically. I think I am ready to start again but there is this worry that exists when it comes to waiting for answers and calls. “I’ll be ok” is what I tell myself, I have a plan. There is just the fear of uncertainty but I am ready for the challenge. Plus I have the opportunity to do something amazing and great for myself and for others and I have to be happy for the opportunity from God to do that.

Peace and Love,

Can We Start Over?

Can we start over? Can we begin again?

Has my light shown itself to sin?

Where are you? Where is my trust in you?

Who in the hell do you think you are?

To come into my life and try to leave a mark.

To lie to me, to cry to me.

If this is love then I want a refund

It’s no longer fun, it’s no longer us.

Where is the trust?

Where is the person I thought I knew?

The person I could tell anything to.

The person that never judged me but instead trusted me, loved me and held me.

Where is this person?

You asked me, Can we start over?

Shit, I don’t know.

Can you take back the lies or the tears I had to cry?

My hope for us and my hope for you is that we can try.

The trust we had I no longer pursue.

Can we start over? Can we begin again?

Have I shown my light to you again?

Has my light shown itself to sin?
