One helluva week.



It’s been one helluva week!  Last week, at almost exactly this same time, I submitted my three weeks’ notice from New Orleans, Louisiana.  I also visited New Orleans for the first time, for a national conference, where I was part of the plenary panel and shared the work I’ve done the past four years in gender-based violence prevention with refugee-immigrant youth.

I’ve been working non-stop since last Monday and just caught up with my sleep a few minutes ago.  It’s been exhausting, and liberating, to finally come close to the end of this chapter of my life.  I’ve had beautiful growth moments and I have learned a lot about myself along the way too.  I’m really proud of myself and am faithful God will guide my next moves, whatever that may be.

I do not have something waiting for me.  I would like a temporary break to finally study.  Something I have not been able to do sufficiently since working.  From there, to go ahead and find work.  I owe it, to myself, to put my entire heart and effort into something that fuels me. I should not deny myself a path I have not fully committed myself to.

It is my desire in life to bring to vision all of the dreams I have denied myself in adulthood.

I set aside my childhood dreams because I started listening to everyone else.

It was not worth it and I have a list of things I need to complete before I turn thirty.  I am so proud of the steps I’ve taken to get to this point …

Please pray for me:  I have my final job interview this week.

And pray that I have the patience to understand my greater purpose in life.  I am blessed beyond means and I know the universe will finally come back full circle for me.


Many Blessings,
