In the days of a boss babe I find myself questioning myself often indecisive, doubtful and not always confident. These are not profitable qualities, they are inevitable. My week has been a crazy ride of emotion. They say the only thing that is constant is change. In times of change, keeping a calm head is hard 32% of the time, at least for me. I believe that change is sent down from God to keep us on our toes. I am humbled by the lack of getting exactly what I want. I pray for one thing and I believe God has a sneaky way of getting it to me, sort of. I will never be one to comment of how God divides his blessings, but I know that he will always keep me blessed in some way.
We think we have such control over our lives and self help books do nothing but confirm that. But what do we do when life throws a curve ball? Even when we do it all right, I have no doubt that there will always be things we can not control. In the past 3 weeks, I have been living by faith and by the patience of living one day at a time. Its a staple rule to live one day at a time, but it is a terribly hard to follow. In the past 3 weeks, I put in my 2 weeks notice at my terrible job with no other opportunity lined up. I went on 4 interviews in one week for 3 different companies. I prayed everyday to get a certain job. I got a job but not the one I prayed for. My vacation was canceled due to the hurricanes coming our way. Finally, today I am celebrating my anniversary with my boyfriend. When I quit my job with nothing lined up, I wondered if that was foolish, many people certainly told me it was. It seemed as though I had wandered off my own path.
I think the metaphorical yellow brick road is the easy clear path. What should and is done, so what happens when we stray off the clear path? That my friends is where the miracles happen. The risk takers and the curious minds are the ones who find their way to a new road. Keep wandering.
