This post was supposed to be about how cute I felt like I looked today. Well, that is evident from the pictures.
Instead, this post will entail some points of reference from the depths of my soul. Before I delve in, let me just say that I have been blogging for YEARS! I used to pen my life’s ups and downs for the masses as my own version of Tammie’s reality show in former online communities, which I took part. When I decided to try my chops at personal style blogging, my writing became more focused on that. Today I want to get back to the basics a bit …To be honest, I kinda miss self-exploration through words on the screen and I might merge these two parts of my identity more often.

Remember this post? I was so excited about making progress and moving forward with my occupational life. What I didn’t know is that God was using that opportunity as a stepping-stone to something greater.

That position was one of two in a four-month timespan. I was fired from both jobs before I even ended the probationary period.

But God works through processes.

Some processes are meant to change you. Others are meant to change your situation. My condition was a arrangement of the two. I was resistant to constructive criticism when I counseled with loved ones about my employment situations. All I could see is that I was being wronged. Many times I asked myself “Why am I reacting this way? I thought I was passed this!”  But I recently learned that when we stress, we also regress.

I began to listen to my loved ones, change my mindset and place myself in the position for positive change. Despite my self-sabotaging and overreacting, God gave me favor I didn’t even deserve.

I just started a new position.

Based on past experiences, I don’t feel like I’ll be overworked. I feel like my personality, {with some spiritual tweaking}, will fit in with the group. I feel like I will be appreciated as a professional.

When God blesses you, you will know without a shadow of doubt that it was HIM because its something that would not have occurred by your own instincts.  While talking to a good friend I was made to realize that I have had to face some difficult situations. But when I come out on the other side, I am stronger.

I’m so grateful.
