As you guys know by now I am late with another blog again. I was working on it yesterday and I had an emergency come up last night that I had to drop everything and go. So I hope you all understand. Needless here is my blog post from yesterday!
Almost 100 days of this guys! Can you believe it?! It’s been so amazing to see where this journey has taken me so far. I owe a lot to this blog to be honest. If it wasn’t for this blog I don’t know where I would be today. And I don’t think I would be doing what I’m about to tell you all..
If I’ve learned anything so far from this journey it’s that you need to go after the things you want. You can’t just sit around waiting. This blog is a testimony to that. I stopped with the “I’ll do that later” and I decided to write it.
At the point when I first started the blog I had recently lost friends that were there for me, I was all alone in a city/state I didn’t know, I didn’t have a reason for staying except I felt God wanted me to stay, I had switched from a job I’d been at for about a year, my love life sucked, I didn’t have any idea what I wanted to do with my life, and etc. you get the picture. My life wasn’t where I wanted it at all.
I would have never imagined at the time I would make new friends (plus all of you followers who are my friends), find a purpose, feel more at home in a place I don’t know, be in a relationship with an incredible guy, feel more confident in my own skin, grow happier, and so much more! To add to the addition I got offered that job I talked about in my previous blog and I’m going to take it. It’s scary because I don’t know how many hours I’ll get a week with it and it’s a reduced pay, but what’s worth it, is that it’s something I really want to do.
I’ve worked so many jobs where I didn’t feel purpose. I didn’t feel like I belonged there. But with this job for the first time I feel like I’d be doing something that would bring me closer to my goals I have in life. I’d feel more purpose and I honestly care about that so much more than the pay.
I’m taking a huge jump doing this all. It’s really scary because I don’t know where it’s going to take me, but at the same time I’m very excited too. I hope that also by me taking this incredibly scary jump in my life that it inspires all of you to go after what you want. Don’t let anything stop you!
My life has changed so much for the better because I made conscious decisions in my life to go after what I wanted. I’ve learned after years of waiting around that no one is going to hand you something. If you are unhappy with something in your life no one has the power to change it but you and God. But even God wants you to take action in your life.
It’s ultimately your choice. You could sit around being miserable with your life or you can make the decision to change it for the better. You may think “No Amber you are all wrong bad things just happen to me.” And I’m just gonna be all up in your face telling you that “bad things happen to everyone, but it’s your choice how you let it effect you. And by choosing negatively you are just going to attract more bad things your way.”
I know this from experience. I’ve gone through a lot and for a long time I just had a pity party for myself. I felt sorry for myself and I told myself only bad things happened to me. So guess what happened to me? Bad things came into my life.
If I can change my life then I know for a fact all of you can as well. You just have to make a decision to go after things instead of sitting in the side lines. You may be waiting for that perfect timing, but I’m here to tell you there’s no such thing. The perfect time is when you make up your mind that you want something and just go after it. Tell yourself ready, set, and go.
Talk to you all again later today haha,
