One year ago, I hated my job.
One year ago, I was heartbroken.
One year ago, I felt lost.
One year ago, (almost exactly) I made a scary journey to Boston that taught me a lot.
In the past year, I have
...accepted a job without seeing where I was working/moving to.
...moved out of state for the first time in my life. Alone.
...met some great people.
...had my heart jerked around, but here I am: stronger.
...survived on a lot less than I thought I could.
...worked outside of my field getting hours to make ends meet.
...been laid off from a job I loved with no solid plan to follow.
Recently, I have
...applied for jobs I never thought I'd get.
...learned who deserves to be in my life. And who doesn't.
...interviewed at a job I never thought I'd be considered for.
...accepted a job that is more prestigious, more challenging, higher paying, and more than a little scary.
I am so incredibly amazed at what can happen in a year and how the Lord has led me by the hand so often. I was lonely sometimes, but I was never alone. I have become stronger than ever, more sure of myself, more capable than I ever thought. I can do this. This is my time to shine.
Next week, I become Pastry Chef Anika Allred. : )
