Happy Monday Bosses and Boss Chics! It feels weird working on a Monday since last week we were out due to the snow, but I’m thankful to be alive and kicking nonetheless. This week is going to be a very busy, exciting week for me and I thought it would be perfect to tie everything together for #PositiveMonday.
Well unless you follow me on twitter you probably didn’t know that I’m due to move into my own apartment this Thursday. I’ve been planning to move for quite some time now, but every time I get close I either get scared and back out or something comes up to prevent me from taking the next step. Originally I moved out of my grandparents home when I was 19. I relocated to Virginia Beach with my son and his father at the time, but after a year of struggling and other factors I eventually moved back home.
It was back in 2009 when I moved back home and it has not been easy by any means. As much as I love and respect my grandparents, it’s difficult trying to raise a child your way living in someone else’s house. Also once you’ve moved out and come back home you have already experienced that taste of freedom, which makes it difficult going back to living under someone else’s rules. When you know you’re an adult it’s so hard trying to balance that where you can still do you, but also live by that person’s rules and not disrespect their household.
On top of that, I’ve dealt with alot of negativity within the past three years which has also pushed my move back further. When I first moved out I’ll be honest and say I did it completely wrong. I didn’t think things through like I should have and as a result it backfired. I’ve had bills to pay off from my first apartment, and not just that I’ve had to rebuild my self confidence that I can do this on my own. Once you try something and fail, it’s hard to get yourself to go back out there and try it again. But this time around I’ve done things differently, and I can honestly say I’m much better prepared. Not only that, but I’m going into this with it set in my head that I only have me to depend on… no one else.
This goes to show that you can’t rush things in life, when something is due to happen it will. We get so caught up in what we want and having it exactly when we want it, that we sometimes forget that God’s plan is the ultimate one. I know I’ve probably set it in my head to move like three times, but neither time before now has worked out. It was either something wrong with the place, or I would get an unsettling feeling… trust me when the time is right to do something you just know.
No matter how much you might want something to happen in your life, if the timing isn’t right it won’t work out anyway. Don’t put a rush on things, remember that patience is a virtue and good things come to those who wait 😉
SN: Shoutout to our girl BossyA who will be moving this week as well! She’ll be relocating closer to home making herself, her family and her friends so happy!
Have a #PositiveMonday!!
