I know I haven’t posted in a while. Thank you for noticing.
I am in fact taking a break to press the reset button on my life.
This blog is not just a reflection of my personal style. It is also a refection on my life in general. It’s my story. … A place where I can look back and say; “I remember that.” And hopefully my obstacles will seem trivial at that point. For that is how I will know I have grown.

 I was in a relationship. I forgot how it felt to be loved. And while he loved me in the best way that he possibly could, I found myself wanting more. Was it me that needed change? Was it him? Was it the situation? I’m still finding that out. The bottom line is I wasn’t ready. I’m working on it. I want to become as much like the person I want to attract as I possibly can. I know it is unwise to ask of someone that which I cannot give. And since I am playing for keeps, I’m taking my time. In order to Get the whole package, you have to Become the whole package.

 My employment situation became complex. My failure to plan made me chose a job that I knew I wouldn’t like out of fear. I knew it and so did they. They let me go, but they also did me a favor. I would not have been able to do my best work under those circumstances. I also needed time to give myself a MUCH NEEDED attitude adjustment. I am aware that when you enter a situation in the wrong spirit, it does not end well. I want to get back to worshipping God through my work. I miss that aspect and I was good at it while I worked in mental health. I should be able to do this anywhere the Lord takes me.

I am getting back in line spiritually.  I allowed myself to become distracted. I’m slowly returning back to my roots.  It just feels right.

     I am having fun. One good thing about the job I lost is I got to travel. I am reluctant to do so on my own. I do not favor driving long distances. Also, since I moved to this city I have met people that love me. … People who have my back and that want what’s best for me. They uplift me and vice versa.

Thank you for your support. The encouraging words. Your prayers.
