I’ve been a little M.I.A lately that’s because I’m a working girl now. Remember a few months back when I was talking about “The Joy’s of Job Searching” Yeah me too. 🙂
So let’s have a little catch-up, should we?
In the months leading up to my conclusion of my job hunt. An important person that I was close to passed away. So I needed a break to focus on my grieving. So I took a break from searching to have a few days to process the loss in my family.
Within that few days the job that I was seeking open up. I didn’t know what to think. I just thought back to a few months ago when I wrote a blog post about “When You Stop Worrying Things Change.” In my case, it took the loss of my loved one to get me to sit back wait.
I believe in faith and I believe there is something higher than we all can see. I was stressed about finding the perfect job when my perfect job found me. I had no idea life works like that but it really does.
It was a blessing within a loss that gave me the courage to keep fighting in the end. What I didn’t know was that this job opening was going to help me cope. It kept me on go so I didn’t have time to think about my loss.
Every single day was something I needed to do to get ready for this job. I was running from the time it opened to the time I finally picked up my work ID. It kept my mind in line. It didn’t stop from thinking about my loss. It helped me not go into a depression that would lead to me sorrowing in my grief.
Now that I’ve told you what I’ve been up to.
Let’s fast Forward to February 2, 2018, My first day of work. I love what I do and I’m thankful for what I’ve been through. I would love to have my loved one back and share the happy news about getting this job. For some reason, I believe she knows about it already.
Here are my thoughts you don’t have to be a believer to see that some blessings come with heart-wrenching losses. Sometimes those losses can teach you just how strong you are. My loved one is gone but I know for a fact she would be proud.
So until next time friend, Take a break and reflect on life’s true blessings,
We are now in 2018, here’s to being successful the best way we know how.
Let Celebrate what we left and what we gained.
I’m thankful that we got through another year and thankful that even though it was tough we can say we made it.
I say 2018 I’m ready for whatever you have in store.
Happy New Year,
As I type this I’m dealing with the loss of my Aunt. If you know anything about me as a person than you know I love my family with everything in me. Not only was she my aunt, she was also like a second mother to me. Everywhere she went I went. When I was little I was so attached to her that I wanted to go to her house every weekend to be with her and my cousins.
The only reason why I’m not falling apart at this present time is that I know that she is at peace with Lord himself. I know that she is not dealing with the stress of life anymore. She has eternal life with God himself. The only person I feel for is her a six-year-old daughter which is my little cousin.
A loss is never easy to deal with but especially when there is a child involved becomes even harder. I know for a fact my mother and I will help as much as we can. My aunt had a heart of gold and I will forever be thankful that I had the pleasure of knowing her.
Let talk about dealing with a loss that puts a hole in your heart.
When someone is close to you. Losing them becomes a reality which we all know is a part of life. With life comes death. I never really understood that until I got older.
We know that someday our loved ones will go to the afterlife and live freely and happily. No worries, no sorrow, just everlasting peace. This is what we wish for them when they leave this place called life.
We hurt for ourselves but we learn how to pick up the pieces and deal with our grief.
I’m at the stage of grief where I cried and now I’m at peace. Knowing she is no longer suffering.
I have a question:
How did you deal with the loss of a loved one? How close where you to that person?
What is stress? Stress is the importance, significance, emphasis placed on something. Here is my story on how I stressed my self out throughout my school years. I was one of those students that would stay up for hours to complete assignments that would have probably taken a genius a couple of minutes to complete. I on the hand was trying to make sure I did the assignment to perfection. I had to learn the hard that stressing myself to point of staying up all night and getting up the next day was not the best thing for a student trying to excel in one of hardest fields. Computers are a subject that needs your full attention when the professor or teacher is speaking because a slight mistake could cost you some vital information and cause a very expensive problem. Just like with doctors and nurses they have to fully pay attention to what’s in a patients chart. You can’t give a patient who has sugar food with sugar in it because that could be a deadly mistake. With electronics, it’s no different. So I say all this to say when you are physically tired don’t be like me and stay up all night knowing that you need to focus the next morning. Go TO BED!!! Tell me a time that you was stress?
When I think of encouragement, I think of confidence in one’s ability to complete a task that has been giving to them. Throughout my high school years, my dear mother was that encouragement. As well as many others that came into my life in that short period of time. My high school years was a little crazy but I still had the encouragement of the people who wanted to see me excel. For the remainder of my high school years, I was homeschooled with two teachers and a tutor that became what I considered to be my encouragement team. These were the people that knew me when everything was falling apart before going off to college and completing what many people thought I could not do. So when I say encouragement is something that will keep you moving in the right direction it will. I’m living proof of what having the right people in your corner can do for you. Yes, it will take some effort on your part but I’m pretty sure you can work up the strength to go the extra mile. Who are your encouragement team members?
