Everything you need comes to you in perfect time, space and sequence. It’s not in our timing, but in God’s timing is the perfect time.
Before leaving on a weekend getaway, I was talking with a good friend about not being happy with their current job, salary, and location. So my friend posed the question: “How do you find the courage to apply for new jobs in another city, and once you get them you move without hesitation?” For me, I have never been one to become comfortable, and complacent. I was sitting at home last night thinking since I’ve graduated from Graduate school I have moved a total of five times. I wanted to purchase a home since 2009, I was pre-approved and started looking but it wasn’t the right time because I lost my job temporarily at LSU Medical School. When I moved to Kansas to work at the VA hospital, I knew that wasn’t where I wanted to purchase a home. Walking through my home I am always thanking God for his many blessing and for always being everything that I have needed him to be and more. No matter how hard you try, to plan your life you never know the road you will end up. Once you accept yourself unconditionally, you’ll be surprised at how comfortable you begin to feel, no matter where you are.
We may have tricked ourselves into thinking our security came from outside ourselves-that we needed certain family members, other people or places, needed certain objects or items around us, or had to live our lives in a particularly way to feel secure. But relying on things and people outside ourselves provide a false sense of security. False security will be shown for what it is.
There’s a security, a true safety, available to us all, no matter who we are, where we are, or what we’re doing. That security comes from accepting ourselves. The security comes from trusting ourselves, trusting our hearts, our wisdom, and our connection with God. Once we accept ourselves unconditionally, no matter where we are it will feel like home.
Last night I had my one of my long chats with my prayer warrior/best friend/ mom about so many things in regards to life, and love. After my housewarming I dealt with something personal that I didn’t share with anyone outside of my support system. I know someone is reading this thinking he was ignoring me, but I took sometime to reflect and get back to my center. I decided to take some time away from blogging, and posting on Social Media. I’m learning that when nobody has an answer to your question, it could be because you’re the only one who knows it. When going through something personal I always come back to my center, that place in you that is still, calm, quiet, and connected. It’s a place you can trust. It connects the body, mind, heart, and soul. It connects your truth, inner voice, and personal relationship with God. I’ve realized my best work comes from there. My insights, awareness, and guidance come from being there, at that place. Your center is confident, nonjudgmental, accepting, and free. If you must leave your center to learn a lesson, feel a feeling, or experience something new, do that. But come back to your center when you’re done. At some point, we each have to choose transformation or stagnation. Have a blessed weekend! ✌️ #growingpainsSN: it’s officially my weekend in 1 hour……#sexinthecity
