Relieved

August 27th, I received a blessing guised as a loss

So, I still consider myself winning

Although one would think I’d be sadden and depressed

I’m thankful and grateful for this new beginning…….

On yesterday, I received news that I had been relieved, and I couldn’t have been more relieved. I had been preparing for this day for 1 year and 3 months, and after what seemed like forever, it came. I wasn’t shocked, surprised or caught off guard, because I knew it was only a matter of time. The book of Ecclesiastes tells us that, “There is a time for everything”, and I’m so glad MY TIME has finally come. God has brought me to the end of a chapter, but it’s not the end of me!

To be continued…..

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Unlikely places

We might not know the circumstances that led to an individual’s behavior or unsound choices, but sometimes, good people do bad things. Trust me, I know. I used to be one of the “bad guys”. Granted no one is perfect, it doesn’t mean that what they’ve done, should be used as a measure as to how they should be treated. I know people make mistakes, so I don’t try to hold them hostage to their past, especially when they are trying to get past it. Love and friendship are two of the best things you can have, and are often found in the most unlikely places. I’m fortunate to have found both! Although it’s unconventional, it’s not understood either. While I understand the reservation, I also understand that people do change, because I have.

Please, don’t be so quick to overlook people, just because you can’t look past their mistakes. When you do, you miss out on knowing some really good people, because you’re too busy remembering the bad things they’ve done!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
