The theme of my year thus far has been all about transition/change. For me the two go hand in hand. Transition is a process of changing from one state or condition to another. Right now it is very evident that God is doing just that to me. God has taken me through many transitions and journeys, but right now I’ll have to say Im going through a very hard yet important one. I moved out on my own to a completely different state. When presented with the opportunity, I was terrified. Although change is needed to succeed and grow in life, it is something I really struggle with. Not only that, I knew this stage would come with many challenges and babbbbyyyyyyyy, ya’ girl was right, lol.
From working an entire summer with NO pay, to almost not having a place to live, to just going through every struggle imaginable….it has been rough, okay. There were many times I wanted to give up, and I’m pretty sure there will be many more, but one thing that this journey has taught me is to hang in there. To have hope…..It is so easy to dwell on the negative, but I’m literally in the process of transforming my mind to really focus and dwell on the good. I also reaffirmed that change/transition is in fact inevitable. Without it one does not progress or grow, or get to a level of desired success. Many changes will mold you and shape you into who you need to become for that next level in your life. It will be uncomfortable and there will be doubt, but you have to stay headstrong. This plays a vital role in becoming the best you.
I’ve learned so much about myself in this transition. It has taught me how strong I really am, and it has showed me how great I will and can be. I also learned the power of faith. It was days I didn’t know how things would work, I would pray and by the end of the day….there was a solution (We thank Gawwwdddd). In this time I have meet some of the most genuine people ever. They helped me in my time in need, and it made me believe in people again. I’ve learned it is okay to be open and vulnerable. I say all this to say every transition or point of change in your life is worth it. Its purpose is to prepare you for what’s to come and as tough as this transition has been, I pray for greatness.
