Who would have ever thought that a decision I made for the betterment of my future had the potential to cause such backlash. What’s even worse is the fiancé does not believe in me. He his angry for he feels that I should have continued working on the job, save some money then made the move. But how could I possibly continue the agenda of I2p if I myself was not operating in my own counsel. I needed to keep the integrity of my message but boy has it come at a steep price. Due to this decision I may have lost a husband.
How long can one live a aimless life before the cracks begin to show? How long can one keep up the smile when all they want to do is frown? How long does surface joy last when rooted in your heart beats dissatisfaction? How long will you cry? How long will you wish? How long will you long for more before you decide to take no more
For twelve years I have been promoting someone else’s agenda and vision for their company. Within that period of time my pay, my vacation, my schedule and my life has been determined without any consideration for my wellbeing. Maybe he will never be able to understand why I decided to leave a job that brought me nothing but duress and impoverishment.
Despite the disapproval and opposition I still believe I am doing the right thing.
Until next time...Be Inspired & Prosper!
I did it! I turn in my letter of resignation and July third will be my last day working on a job. At first I was a little nervous but as the day progressed I became more self assured that I was doing the right thing.
I’m a little drained so I cannot expound on my thoughts as much, but sink or swim go time is fast approaching!
Until next time…Be Inspired & Prosper…
I made the massive decision to go ahead and resign from my position with the city of Atlanta! Yes, I’m finally quitting but fear has already tightened its deadly hold on me. Just typing this news brings me joy and anxiety for I am burdened with thoughts of failure and the discord it could cause within my relationship
It’s hard to believe in myself for not only is the fiancé already claiming that I am going to fail but I also doubt my own ability. Somehow his negative views and lack of faith have found its way into my heart.
I am not as courageous as I would have people believe for inside lies a scared little girl clamoring with fear at the thought of habitual struggle. But then I think about everything that has lead up to this moment. I think about where I came from, and everything the Lord has brought me through. I think about how much I have grown and how that would not have been possible if I continued to allow fear to stricken me.
Daily I encourage people to live their dream yet I myself lack the boldness to fulfill my own. I cannot live a life contrary to what I have been hammering into others, the bottom line is I either believe the message of I2p or it’s all a lie that builds false hope…
The pursuit of success is a daily walk for in trying to foresee onto its path prematurely can cause one to feel defeat before they even start walking. Tomorrow I will take one of the biggest leaps of faith I have ever taken by turning in my two week notice. I am tired of riding the fence, this dream of mine is not a hobby so it is about time that I stop treating it like one.
Side Note: It’s almost three am Tuesday morning and I am working on I2p, never would I have ever imagined that I even had the capacity to do this yet I’m doing it…now I just need that same drive when it comes to reading my bible…lol
To anyone out there who like myself longs for something different in your life I would like to share this Les Brown quote with you that just entered into my spirit
If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, work day and night for it, give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it. If all that you dream and scheme is about it, and life seems useless and worthless without it, and if you gladly sweat, fret and plan for it, and lose all your terror of the opposition for it, and if you simply go out for this thing that you want with all of your capacity, strength and audacity, faith hope and confidence, and stern tenacity, if neither, cold poverty famish or gaunt, sickness of pain of body and brain can’t keep you away from a thing that you want, if doggered and grim you besiege and beset it, with the help of God you will get it. – Les Brown

My mind is overwhelmed with thoughts of will I ever
The beauty of the morning surrounds me but I don’t have time to enjoy it
For the four walls of my office holds me shackled
Yet still I try to break free
But I am accosted with voices from every direction
Yes, the inquiring minds want to know
How will you sustain and maintain with no income
So I succumb to the pressure of that suffocating 9 to 5
And endure the walls that seem to bear down on me
Always wondering what is the right thing to do
My heart tells me one thing but my mind another
Life you are beautiful life you are free
So daily I push myself so that I can be free to be free...
Until next time...Be Inspired and Prosper
Today I was tired and mentally exhausted so I visited this blog called ‘So Many Places’ and one of the post I read was titled ‘Why I'm Quitting My Job to Travel’. It was a very interesting read; I was amazed that someone I did not know, with a different background could have a similar deep seeded unhappiness due to the place of employ. Basically she made the dream a reality by quitting her job and traveling the world with her husband. Amazing right!
Such a big leap of faith is not for everyone and even rarer than that the possibilities both spouses are on the same page...wow! Will I ever have the confidence in self needed or faith to finally leave my job? I think I do, but only time will tell if I will really follow through with such a major step
This article resonated with me for several reasons but mainly because I am currently employed full-time and the discontent I feel at times overwhelm me. Okay it's not so much that I abhor my job but more so that I am disappointed in myself for not living all my potential. Everyday I walk into that office it's almost like a part of my dream and a part of me dies for I am faced with the constant reality that I am living a life less than my worth…
Making the move...
No I don’t know Kim’s situation or how she was able to go forward with this move and be successful. Correction I do know a little of how she and her husband was able to transition into that decision; according to her post they sold everything the car, the house, the furniture, the dog...I’m just kidding not the dog ;-) but you get the drift. But that is obviously not an option for me for I worked extremely hard to get this house, I need my car, and I barely have enough furniture to fill my house let alone some to sell.
I know i need to a plan and have been told several times that "NEVER leave a job when you don’t have income coming in", but I just want (scratch that) need to do it and find my way as I go. I honestly feel that if I did not have that hindering crutch of a job I would hit the pavement hard...then again I don’t really know. When I am excited I have all kind of ideas but when those bill starts arriving in the mail it becomes a different story
I Don’t Know, But I Do...I do, But I Don’t! The computer can’t be my resting place forever I will have to eventually put my talk to action but I get scared, for every negative 'what if' bombards me seemingly to know end

Many people take the steps to making their dream a reality, but hundreds possibly thousands end the journey prematurely due to unforeseen difficulties. Don't give up when you have gone so far!
I on several occasions wanted to end my journey to financial freedom, but to give up would mean a life of,
Until next time...Be Inspired2prosper...
This is my life unimpeded, unafraid and unashamed, on a journey from impoverishment to prosperity in every area!
