A little over two months ago; I was in a really bad place, mentally. I was working for a company where I didn’t feel supported, appreciated, or valued. In the morning it began to get to the point where I didn’t even feel like getting out of bed, that’s how bad it was. When I would walk into work, I swear I quit like a million times in my head before my shift ended.
It was that fucked up…
I felt as though I was losing myself + passion in my field of studies. I really prayed and thought everything was going to get better, but it ended up getting worse. I didn’t know what to do, or where to go because I exhausted all of my options and felt as though everything was pretty much swept under the rug.
I remember praying + asking God to remove me from anything that didn’t serve my purpose, and he did just that! I’ve experience so much joy, peace, and happiness these past two months, and by the grace of God this was all apart of his plan.
I’ve been using these days to enjoy my own company, focus on my brand, degree, career searching, and traveling. I’m asking for everything I need, and I refuse to settle in any aspect of my life, and that’s just that!
Last month I decide to book a last minute flight to Dallas to see my cousins, who o haven’t seen in yearssssss. This was my very first time flying, and traveling alone. When I tell you I was so nervous, and filled with so many different emotions, it was ridiculous. It’s like once you submit that payment, and they send you, your flight confirmation, shit gets real lol.
Besides that; One of my goals this year was to get over my fear of flying, and that’s exactly what I did. When I arrived at the airport that morning, the staff was amazing and very helpful. Once it was time for me to board my flight, I started to feel a little uneasy. The nice flight attendant assured me that this flight was going to be smooth, and before you know it, you’ll be at your next destination.
My stay in Dallas was nothing short of amazing, and I had a really great time! The food, drinks, people, and environment was so welcoming. I couldn’t help but to fall in love with Dallas, and the southern hospitality. When my trip finally came to an end, I couldn’t wait to get home to plan my next visit, and guess what? I just booked another ticket to go to Dallas at the end of the month lbvs.
I was just so tired of living my life being fearful and staying stuck in my comfort zone, so why not face the things you’re afraid of? I truly believe life should be filled with amazing experiences, people, and things that brings you the most peace + joy. So why waste anymore time you might not have tomorrow?
