Giving Up?

Things will not always happen when you believe that they should which often times leads to thoughts of giving up. But where will giving up get you?

You can’t just expect to reach where you’re headed overnight.

I remember towards the end of 2015 I was riding in the car with my older sister complaining about not being able to find a job. I was so stuck on the thought “why haven’t I heard anything back?” I’d been searching and searching for months! It seemed like everyone around me had jobs, it seemed like I was the only person without one.. LITERALLY! I love babysitting but it has always been an as needed thing. So once I was old enough to start my job hunt, I did.

Anyway.. my sister said something that stuck in my brain like a sticky note.

“Things happen when you least expect them to. They happen right when you’re ready to give up.”

I guess I was so focused on all the negatives that I paid no mind to anything else. While I was happy for those around me who were receiving all of these blessings I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t.

One of my goals for this year was to have a job within the first 3 or 4 months. I decided to try thinking a little more positive.

Maybe it’s just not my time?

Keep trying!

Don’t give up!

I pushed myself to make sure I was applying to different places almost every day and I even called a few times to check on the status of my application. (Okay two of those times I had my sister call LOL)

Yesterday I went to an interview. I was so anxious the night before.. I was anxious about being anxious at the interview. Would my nerves get the best of me? I was most worried about not having an answer for any of the questions presented. But for some reason my heart was not doing much thumping as I made my way to the interview yesterday afternoon.

I felt prepared. I was ready.

I believe the talk I had with myself and also the prayer I said Wednesday night helped.

But more importantly I believe the amount of support I had was what truly made a difference. Words cannot explain how grateful I am.

The interview went well, the manager was AWESOME! The vibes were great and I know I’ll love working there.

I’ve had such a great week that I had to make a blog post! I encourage all of you reading this to KEEP GOING! No matter what you’re working towards. Yeah you will stumble and fall but you keep climbing those stairs.

And again.


Have a great weekend!

  1. Good for YOU!! Thank you for sharing! Your determination will not be put off by small set-backs! I find that life happens when you least expect it!! Thinking back over major decisions in my life, I concentrate on that, pray on that, meditate on that, and then let “that” go out to the Universe. Sounds silly, but it works for me! It’s always darkest just before the dawn, never give up!! Faith will hold you through!
