While writing this, I am exactly 5 days from a big milestone birthday, and although I had prepared myself for this one, I could have never written the story that has become my life in the last 3 weeks.
Everyone who knows me is aware that I am defined by my work. I have always had a job and have been able to provide for myself and my family even if that meant holding more than one job at a time. I was raised that you always go to work because that's how you bring home the [turkey] bacon. Since the age of 15, work was always on my list of things to do, and even though I always had a dream of my own, I made the dreams of others come true.
April 30, 2018 changed all of that for me. My quote for the month was "good things never come from comfort zones". What did I chose that for? My prayer to God was "if this isn't for me, slam the door shut in my face". Who says that?! Little did I know that my world was about to be turned upside down, and my definition of self would be shattered. I was fired.
Now the details about all of that are still with the powers that be, but the reason I am standing at the door of entrepreneurship is God ordained. I know the vision that God has given me, and since I also prayed "I'm committed to making a fool of myself for you"...here I am. Seriously...I gotta stop praying these straight-no-chaser prayers.
My hope is that you are praying for and with me. If you are against me, please keep that to yourself. To everyone that I have let down, hurt, made to feel left out or used...I apologize from the core of my being. No one should ever be made to feel that someone they considered a friend, co-worker, family, framily, or loved one has lost confidence in them.
I am dying to myself daily, and becoming a better person.
See you all on the other side of freedom.
