I know I have neglected my blog for too long. Lately, I have been feeling uninspired, unmotivated, and in a funk towards my blog; however, I have been taking care of myself in terms of my mental, physical, and emotional health. Now, this post is not to complain or share ALL of my business, but rather present the reality of my post-grad life: the good, the bad, and the beautiful process.
Since graduation, life has been a rough and bumpy journey. Currently, I am not at a job in my field of study; however, at work I am learning a lot about myself and sharpening my soft skills such as patience, listening, and finding balance. I can’t lie. Sometimes I get down and out about my current job. There are days that I wish were over soon and there are times where I feel stuck. In spite of the rough days I am always reminded to trust the process. The process is filled with challenges to construct and strengthen us for what we are called to do.
Great things do not arrive in our comfort zones, right? That’s what we say until we are knee-deep in uncomfortable situations (or maybe it is just me). Throughout this season of personal growth I have been working on becoming fearless again. There was a time in my life where I did not let anything get in my way of success. I did not worry about people hurting me (emotionally), I did not have any anxiety towards making mistakes, and I certainly was not apprehensive about my future. I lived in the moment. Every day I work on becoming Fearless Chasity, and while I can not go back to being the exact same person I focus on being an upgraded version (as corny as that sounds) lol.
Moving to Tennessee has been a test of faith, trust, strength and courage. Let me be the first to tell you that this transition has not been the smoothest. I could go on and on about my expectations versus reality, but instead I will tell you that everything happens for a reason. And of course, you know that, but do you really understand?
This process is teaching me to be in the now, have faith, and do not lose sight of my purpose. Let me be clear. I am unsure of what my purpose looks like in terms of a general career title, but I know I have been called to do something bigger than me, help and serve others, and educate/mentor in some sort of manner. Right now I am becoming prepared, groomed, and polished for my dream career, so in the meantime I am patiently standing still, learning, growing, and increasing my faith. Do not lose sight of what you want in life because a few bad days, weeks, months, or even seasons. Of course this is not an easy task, but it can managed on a day-to-day basis. I encourage you to be present and live in the moment.
