If you been reading my blog, you know that I have come ALONGGGGGG WAY. It has a been tough year but also a rewarding year(so far). In early October, I quit my job that normally, a person like myself who just came out college wouldn't quit. Good benefits, good pay, overtime(voluntary), etc. How could beat that right?
Yeah....not me. At that time, I felt empty as if I wasn't doing what I was set out to do and walking in purpose. I did my job so well that it felt boring after only a month. I felt that God was calling me to do 'something' else. But what? 🤔🤔 Hell I didn't know 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️ but all I knew, this wasn't it.
So I quit my job and I went back up to Allendale to live with my friends. Didn't have anything but my clothes and essentials 🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️ but I just knew God had a plan for me. Stayed on their couch and I got called everything under sun from worthless to a bum on the couch who wasn't doing nothing with his life.
When you hear things like that, it hurts you to the core. You start to question decisions that you made and depression starts to kick in. I started to question God, what his plan was and why he would take everything away from me. From my car, to honestly my job, to my relationships, lord why is this happening? 😩😩
But one day, my friends saw that my depression kicked me so low that I wasn't myself at all. They came to me and started to show me why they are my family. They helped pick me up from bottom of the filth that I was in and reminded me that no matter how tough things get or how bad it may look, that God always has us. From that point, I started to change for the better of ME!
I started working(back) in food service again and I started to take back control of my life and my future. I knew that my funds weren't where I needed them to be but that didn't matter to me because God always, I mean ALWAYS made a way.
Fast Forward to today, I have two jobs now, got accepted in my graduate program at Grand Valley State University, my own apartment and a full time entrepreneur(Podcast, Media Company, Blog). I'm not perfect to say the least nor do I have it all together all the way. But with the Big O.G. Up above riding with me, I know that anything and everything is possible.
So I thank you to those who have seen me fall and did not leave my side during that time. I say thank you to those who did leave because you made room for God to step in and take control. No matter what you are going through, always remember that God has a plan. We may not know what the plan is and why, all we can do is continue to keep moving forward.
'Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to your balance, you have to keep moving forward.'
