Welp, today I had to do the one of the hardest things I gave had to do in a couple years. I put I’m my 2 weeks notice at my job. It was on of the weirdest feelings. I didn’t really have much to say and my manager was at such a loss of words, she didn’t know what to say either. I didn’t know how attach I was to this place till that moment. It almost feels wrong. I have worked with the same people day in, day out for the past 5 Years. The good the bad, the hellos the goodbyes, and now it’s my turn to say goodbye. I can honestly say I love this place, the people, the relationships I have built, the things I have learned which have shaped me to be the worker that I am. Even though it may not have been what my passion is, it as great training for life.
But now opens the next chapter of my life. I am both excited and scared (kinda) about my next steps. I finally got a job here in New York City, that translates to no more 1 and a 1/2 hour drives to work, that means no more driving and parking every night, that means work close to home, that means my savings account will begin to see alot more action, that means I can finally get up with people I have been forced to keep to a texting/social media relationship, that means finally being able to attend evening events in the city and networking and collabs will be on the up and up, this proves how good the Lord is! I have been praying for almost a year now for a good job in the city, that would allow me (if not aligned with what I already do) to make good money, and allow me free time to do my stuff. Different opportunities popped up here and there, but nothing stuck. Having to deal with interview and and rejection and take a toll on you, but they would just make me remember the Psalms, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”Pslm 37:4 and……. “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. The Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in You.”Pslm 84:11-12. Being able to rest in the fact that my success is not hinged on the fact of how great of a photographer/videographer or good worker I am, but in the finished work of Christ I was able to rest in the fact that his promises were true and it would be a matter of time before my prayers would be answered some way( either they way I wanted them to be or not)
And here I am, two weeks away from the end of this place to the beginning of the next. I pray I am able to cultivate it well, use the time and the money I have been newly entrusted to, to be able to create, and inspire. And most of all glorify my God through it all. So you’ll be seeing alot more stuff coming from my end, I’d you want to collab him me up lets see if we can make things work. And if you want to celebrate with me, you prob find me at a Calexico cart near you! Lol
