Sometime life is worth the wait it makes you go through. I have been through some hard times lately, not the most horrible times, others have been through worst but they definitely weighed on my soul in a way I've never had to do before.
Identity theft, nervous breakdown, leaving my job (while my choice I was forced out by harrassment), another nervous breakdown, barely being able to pay bills, getting a job, getting it pulled from me, still dealing with the identity theft a year later, finding a new house, having it be rented out before we can even apply. But everything works out for a reason.
-The identity theft has shown me who people really are. My real friends have stepped up, they have supported me. It has gotten the toxic venomous people out. I have nothing to do with them now and that's fine.
-Both nervous breakdowns have made me more self aware. I am able to understand myself better from them and proven that I am stronger than I even think I am sometime.
-Leaving my job, while difficult financially had been the best thing for my career. I hated accounting but I was good at it. This forced me to go after my dream jobs. It made me look at my priorities and I went after it.
-Heidi has been my stone and made sure that the bills were always taken care of. She's done her best to not let me stress about them and she's amazing.
-I think the job that got pulled due to the horrible things that lady said was part of the process. Because I was turned down for it it opened up the doors for the job that I will be starting next week. It's a job with growth in the field I want to be professional in.
-One of the reasons I'm still dealing with the identity theft is because she didn't take the plea bargain. This worked out in my favor. I wish I could tell you all the fun details but the fact is I would hate to spoil it all for her :)
-While we lost out on the 2 bedroom house for $900 we found a three bedroom for $1,000. We have gotten it! We will be signing lease tomorrow. While it will be taking us out of the city it will be bringing us closer to a University and my new job. This is a great opportunity. Oh and I get a garden!!
So I have struggled through the hard times and they are starting to turn around. On another page, I have been asked to perform at two Prides. Not just the DC Capital Pride but Atlanta Pride. I'm working on the logistics right now but hopefully it will happen. I'm very excited.
Life is worth the wait sometimes.
