This smile is REAL 😌 ••
Only God knows what these last couple of months of my life have really been like. Full of self-doubt, uncertainty, confusion, heartache... March, I quit my job that I was very unhappy at & had planned to move to LA to further pursue entertainment reporting. Long story short, I landed a job at an ad agency & would've been making less than I was at my previous job & working longer hours; I knew deep down I would not have had the time to pursue entertainment reporting on the side as I would have liked, but still tried to convince myself otherwise that pursuing my dreams meant sacrificing, lowering my standards/worth, accepting lower pay, living uncomfortably, moving across the country from my sister who later that month gave birth to my niece, etc. & don't get me wrong, often times it do take those types of compromises to get to where you want to be in life.. but something, at the end of the day, just didn't feel right.. it felt forced. I remember a couple of days before leaving my old job I was sitting at my desk getting ready to sign my roommate agreement for my apartment out in LA and God spoke to me clear as ever and told me to rip up that paper and be still. He had a different plan for me.
So, I did. And I sat.. month after month after month unemployed.. but I look back now & I am so grateful for the time off because half way through after I had gotten sick of moping around and trying to do things on my own time & my own way.. I decided to surrender my absolute ALL to God. Our relationship grew tremendously & it's been truly rewarding to experience what all He will begin to do when you humble yourself and allow for HIS will to manifest in your life. ••
After steady prayer, learning & abiding by His word and remaining OBEDIENT.. I am so blessed to finally be doing something I love.. in ATL.. surrounded by family.. as the newest Talent Coordinator for one of the world's leading talent recruitment firms in beauty, fashion & entertainment.. literally doing EVERYTHING I love in the industries I love. I promise you.. when you're faithful to God, He'll give you all that you desire & MORE. & crazy part is.. this is just the beginning 😩🙏🏽
