Where have I been?

With every blessing comes  a challenge, and with every challenge there are all sorts of emotions that oblige you to shift into action.

I wrote that yesterday on Facebook. Eh… All I can say is, you live, you learn, and you ask, “Why the hell am I going through this?” lol

Last week I got hired on to work with a marketing company about 50 minutes from where I’m living now. Lets just say I’ve been a little ghost on all my social sites because of it. Early morning, late nights, and messages that say, “It’s a shame that the only place I can see and talk to you is on Snapchat.” Mind you, it’s only been a week and 48 hours. I’ll stop there. smh Oh wait, and I’m single by the way. -_- Cray…

Anyhow, I wrote with every blessing comes a challenge, because I was being challenged. No shocker there, huh? lol

You see, I never thought that I had quite the skill to be a salesperson, hints why I pursued the opportunity. That once true, and now false, statement surely played a part in my day yesterday. It was bad. Emotionally and mentally. I just couldn’t deliver like I’ve envisioned.


Although it doesn’t have to be, it’s always a little tough making the transition from teacher to student. You’re vulnerable, you’ll make mistakes, and like I said in the beginning, you’ll ask yourself, “Why the hell am I going through?”

Yesterday when I got home, I forced myself to view my virtual vision board. I started to realize that I was reverting. I needed to remind myself WHY I put myself in the position to be challenged and to take it easy on myself – even when others didn’t.

Life is a constant learning tool, and most times it throws you the same lesson over and over again. I guess that’s life’s way of asking you if you got the idea yet.

I want to share a short statement that a stranger told me today after sharing my experience. But before I do, I want to say that I believe it’s universally true for everyone – even if I don’t know you personally. So, read this statement, sentence rather, as if I’m expressing this to you directly.

The statement was:

You’re going to be fine with whatever you do.
