First of all, I want to apologize because I’ve been kind of MIA and inactive with my blog over the past week. If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, you’ll see that I’ve recently just started a new job. After a year of working in an office, I’ve decided to go back into healthcare !! To be specific, I am currently a Certified Nursing Assistant and strongly considering Nursing School. I’ve been offered the opportunity twice in the past to go to Nursing School but I turned them down because I feared failing out and not actually making it through.
Nursing School is tough and you have to really really be committed to it in order to make it to the finish line but for some reason this time around I’m more confident in the fact that I can do it so I believe I’m going to give it a shot !! After starting in healthcare and then taking a break to test the waters of something else, I found that my true passion is helping and taking care of other people. I didn’t fit well in the office but I definitely feel like this part of healthcare is where my calling is at.
As you can see I’m a little excited in this picture! Excuse my eyes though haha this filter has them looking a little creepy!
This week I have completed my first full week on my new job and I have to be honest .. I LOVE IT !! I feel like a natural fit. I guess it’s because I already kind of knew what to expect for the most part. The hardest and most challenging thing for me has been the struggle to get my body back adjusted to this type of work. Oh my gosh !! I really didn’t think it would be this rough. My feet have hurt SO bad everyday from being upon on them for several hours at a time and my back has been very sore from lifting and tugging on the patients to transfer them either into their beds or wheelchairs. Thankfully, my Husband has given me multiple massages and I’m just so grateful for him because if not, I probably would’ve whined about it until he finally gave in. 😂😂
So yeah , this is pretty much why I’ve been MIA on the blog this week! I’ve been very busy with getting adjusted to my new job 💙 I just want to say thank you to everyone who has still taken the time to stop by blog and show me some love !! I look forward to catching up on everything that you guys have been writing about so if you notice me commenting on some of your posts from dayssss ago, I’m just catching up! Love Y’all !! I wish you nothing but good, strong, positive vibes from this side of the world !! xoxo!
It is so important to leave people in the season that God intended for them to be a part of. Seasons naturally change in our lives just like the weather and it’s inevitable. Have you ever tried to put a fallen leaf back on the tree it fell from? It is impossible to reconnect and reobtain growth. Same way with people who no longer serve purpose in our lives and I promise if you ask God to show you who needs to fall, He will. I was just saying this yesterday and I’m going to say it again today .. Not everyone can go to the next level with you. When God is taking you to that next level, there’s NOT going to be room for everyone on that journey. Be able to accept that. Not everyone can always enter the space you’re called to. Be OK with that and go anyways! Love from a distance when it becomes necessary and transition into your new season.
This post was inspired by a beautiful heart, Montana Danielle as well as when I was going through my own season of learning to love people from a distance or just simply learning to love them where they were.
There will be a natural process of elimination that occurs on your journey. You have to pay attention to what’s happening in your life and don’t try to interrupt the process. People will show up and show their true colors and you have to respond accordingly. You may have to cut off some people whom you’ve considered friends. You may have to cut off some family members. Anyone who is toxic and refuses to grow and change must be left behind until they are ready to catch up. There will always be separation before elevation. Be ready for it and the natural occur.

Just a little encouragement for you that also inspired me! Thanks for visiting my blog!! You’re company here is always appreciated 🙂
Just because you aren’t making progress as fast as you think does not mean you aren’t making progress at all. Keep going. Slow progress is better than no progress and honestly, I just wanted to remind you of that because sometimes we get so ahead of ourselves .. we lose all patience and get frustrated !! We get mad when we don’t see positive results as soon as we’d like. We get aggravated when things don’t necessarily go our way and when doors don’t open when we think they should. I am so guilty of all of this because I’m the type of person that gets excited about my future! I just know that all the work I’m putting in will literally pay off one day but sometimes I get annoyed because I wish that “one day” would be so much sooner than later haha.
I’m learning to appreciate the seasons though! There is literally a time for everything and as I’ve said before .. whatever it is you’re waiting on God for, you might as well learn to wait well because you’re not going to rush God. That’s just not going to happen so you can just forget it. He moves on His own time, not ours and when I get to where I’ve kind of forgotten that, He definitely finds a way to remind me of it !! So with that being said, keep doing things now that you can look back and thank yourself for later! One day at time and small steps at time will eventually get you to where it is you’re trying to go 🙂
You are not a failure and you’re actually doing a really good job!! I’m proud of you!

Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been in this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This too shall pass. I promise it will pass.
Just some real and true encouraging ones for the beautiful who’s fighting depression the hardest today. I love you. Sending lots of positive vibes your way! Breathe, for real. Everything is really going to be okay. xoxo!
