You know the saying, “leap of faith,” right?
Well my experience was indeed a “free fall of faith.”
I was completely unhappy with my career, to the point of straight misery and anxiety when thinking of it. I stuck with it for 9 months when I knew week 1 that, this was not going to be a pleasurable experience.
Not to get into the details of things, but nonetheless, I left my job. My first full-time career after college, full health benefits, good pay.
Did I mention, I left without having another job?
I found myself turning down interviews because my current job demanded so much of my time, I couldn’t make the interviews. I also told my parents the day before my last day of work.
The awkwardness of sitting at the dinner table after letting them know. My dad completely silent. My mom starting into my soul. But then the reaction I received was relieving. They explained they trusted my decision as long as I thought about it and while I had the opportunity to do so.
I then got a job and with one of my old companies that I love sooo much. It was such a family just like I remember with the company but at a different property.
But then it happened.
The opportunity I’ve been waiting for and praying for. I applied for this company months back and got turned down but asked to come back for a new property opening up with the company. It was a 2 day process. Day 1, you were informed if you were invited back for interviews. I was invited back and then towards the end of day 2 they started calling names, mine was not called. But then they gave those remaining another task, put together a puzzle. The puzzle said, “hired!”
I kept my cool, but that night all I did was cry and smile, smile and cry. To think I took such a free fall by trusting in myself and my gut.
This is just to say, being 20 in this world now is HARDDDDDD. You feel as though you are suppose to have it all together while living your best life. Just know you got this Queens! Trust your intuition and have faith in yourself; whatever your dreams are, no matter how far fetched they seem to look like, go for it!
Queen on Queens; Queen on!
