Long time no see, it's been almost a year since I last posted on this blog.
And during that year a lot has happened.
I have a renewed confidence in myself that I never knew was in me.
This year I conquered my fears. I'm an adventurist at heart and love challenges but I'm too afraid to take action. During the time of my last post and today I should really give myself a round of applauses.
Like I said, I love adventures and new challenges but afraid to take action or stepping out of my comfort zone to go for something else, something foreign to my daily activities.... my life a pretty monotone if you want to know.
One thing that pushes me to act is my emotions. I can say or do things out of anger, happiness, nervousness etc and be happy or kick myself later on but hey I did it!
So out of anger my good friends and I booked tickets to San Francisco. Anger but mostly stress, we were over worked and really needed a break. The anger is mostly the unfairness at the job we were at. So we needed a break. Booked a ticket and took about 7 days off... without notice yikes. Thankfully our manager was cool. It was the first time that I threw out my to do/ to go wish list and just took action. Our trip wasn't planed very well lol our first day in San Francisco was horrible. It took us 3 days to figure the city out, by the time we started to have fun it was time to come back home. We did enjoy our time away from work and other elements of our stressful life here in Jersey.
Our trip was in May 2014 and in the beginning of the year I had applied for a new job at a major company, I was called back after the basic test for another voice test and didn't hear from them for almost 4 months leading us into May. I felt like I was going to stay at my fast food job/convenience store job for the rest of my life. But little did I know in August I got an email calling me for an interview in September, then a medical test in November than training in January 2015.
This was so amazing to me. The hiring process took a whole year and plus four months of training. I am now working for a company which I thought I was never going to make it in because of my accent and not having a degree. This achievement really made me realize that I'm capable of anything I set my mind on, with prayers and faith and the will of God. I sure made my whole church pray for me lol.
On another note I'm back in school and will finish my associates this year 2015 and embark on to the next level of my education.
With 2 months left into this year and all the great achievements I've accomplished, I think the greatest wish of mine should get addressed.
My weight loss or should I say my health journey. With all the accomplishments this year I've also scored an extra 20 pounds to my weight. How sad! But fortunately, I have met an amazing friend/sister who is not only encouraging and supporting me to take my health on track but is praying and motivating me to be strong and believe in myself. This is the beginning. Let's see what the update will be a year from today.
