Whew! The first half of the year has been a world wind. Between school, work, the blog, and your usual adulting, I have been quite stressed. It was the middle of semester two of graduate school when I realized the program is not meeting my expectations. Yes, you read that right. People forget that yes, you have to convince the admissions officers that you are a good fit for the school, but the institution also has to do the same. While I learned a lot, I am in search of another educational path. Then there was the J-O-B. It left me unfulfilled, stressed, sick, angry, sad, and the list goes on. The industry I am working in is just not my steeze. I had been there for a little over two years and have been wanting "out" since about month six. Sad. When you have bills to pay, you tend to stay and wish for something better. As the bible verse says, faith without works is dead. So I meditated, prayed, silenced my thoughts, and listened to God, and He told me "Go" so I did. I told my family and friends I was coming home this summer I made the decision not to renew my lease and move home to "recalibrate my life" as I told my mom a few months before I actually put my two weeks notice in. Friday, June 3, 2016, is when I actually handed my boss my resignation and feel relieved I can not openly talk about my plans.
"You can't think like that. You made the decision, and you can't go back now. You can't take risks sitting still. We will work it out. Sometimes you take risks and they don't work out. You just have to turn your lemons into lemonade."
I am coming home.
P.S. I have been toying with the idea of an online boutique that showcases not only my own handmade goods, but others as well. Also, I have plenty of ideas of how I want to revamp Diva Chronicles but just haven't had the time. So just stay tuned to this space to see what I come up with. Entrepreneurship has always been my end goal, it may come sooner than later.
