This year is flying by. Just like every other year.
My birth month is coming to a close and so much has happened this month that I’m so grateful for. So here are some things that I’m forever grateful for.
Celebrating my 24th birthday
March 11 is my birthday and I have never been surrounded by so many people that remembered my birthday and went out of their way to celebrate with me.
I ate so much and I don’t regret it one bit lol. Partied here and there but most importantly, being accompanied by friends to celebrate with was the cherry on top of that birthday cake.
I’m grateful for another year of life and I’m very excited for what this year has in store for me.
Texas weather don’t play honey and those hot days are slowly creeping up on us.
People may not think that the 80s is fresh but YOU DON’T KNOW THE TEXAS HEAT. IT AIN’T MERCIFUL TO NO MAN.
I’m definitely taking advantage of being outside and enjoying the fresh breeze in the evening cause I know in the next couple of months, it’s not gonna be pretty.
So Imma sit back on my hammock, relax, and enjoy the beautiful evenings while it lasts.
My first big girl job
It’s been a long time coming and it was so emotional getting the good news.
I don’t know. Applying for this job…it felt different. Light in a way? I know that doesn’t make sense. It felt like the one but I don’t like to bring my hopes up in case I didn’t get it. That’s just the worst feeling ever.
I never prepared for an interview so much as I’ve prepared for this in my entire life. After the interview, I didn’t feel confident that I did good but I’m sure a lot of people feel that way. I wasn’t expecting anything and I hate getting my hopes up.
I did it. I left it at that and I let God do His thing. I continued applying for more jobs after that.
And to actually get the offer, all the emotions that I’ve bottled up, the constant frustration, rejection after rejection email, the feeling of not being worth it, the random days where I would just burst out of desperation and hopelessness…it all just poured out of me and I wouldn’t contain it.
It’s always uncomfortable bumping into someone and they ask, “So are you working?” And having to admit that you don’t for so long. It felt so weird telling people that I actually got a job.
The date is exactly 2 days after I got the call that I got the job. This message feels like it was meant for me. It was comforting. It made me feel at peace and that all that hard work and constant job hunting was all worth it.
It’s very surreal that it actually happened and I never felt so grateful for anything in my life.
There was something my dad said that really stuck with me and I think it applies to anything in life.
“Use this as a stepping stone to where you want to be.” – Dad ❤
It’s been a beautiful month for me filled with blessings and endless answered prayers. With that, I am forever grateful and humbled.
What are you grateful for this month? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time, peace Fam!
