The universe has a funny way of setting things straight. Making you keenly aware of the intricate details that make you, well you.
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be here doing this right now I would look at you like you were completely bonkers. Or just smiled at you as I tried to escape.
Still in the thick of it, I would have been content with being a health care worker. That is all I knew for a better of 10 years or so. That is who I thought I was. That is all I would have remained if I wasn’t so forcibly removed.
NEVER IN MY LIFE would I have imagined what would happen just a few short months later.
Looking at the events that transpired I am still in complete shock.
- That the very company who I spoke so highly of would just push me out. The company I spent the last 5 years working myself into the ground (literally) would just turn its back on me.
- The coworkers that turned their backs on me. Looking at me, appalled by the actions I was taking- or lack thereof. The same coworkers that were literally in the thick of it, with me.
I literally felt like I was in the movie that I didn’t want to be in. But I am so thankful for the experience. It was like a tiny glimpse to remind me what so many people have felt before when in the face of fear and hate. Pure evil. It thrusted me into when Hitler was reigning havoc on so many beautiful souls. It reminded me of times that were not so long ago, like when slavery was prevalent across our nation. It made me question, is this how Rosa Parks felt?
It literally pushed me to stand in my power.
While some may argue that these are nowhere in comparison, I beg to differ. The very root of the problem lies in hate and the leading reason is fear.
I was reminded of these feelings today when I stepped foot into a different hospital while delivering food. I was reminded about how thankful I am that I am no longer working in an environment like that.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into or even what I was getting out of.
Shortly after being terminated, I was able to find a job that I absolutely loved. It was working in a spa that had cryotherapy and modalities that would help your body to recover and heal. Completely up my alley and surrounded by great people.
I grew within that company in such a short time it was such an amazing experience. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out, but it showed me something within me that I didn’t truly understand before-for that I am grateful!
I went from being a healthcare worker, to a wellness tech, to a social media manager, content creator, website designer/developer (on one of the hardest platforms-might I add) all within a year.
This whole entire experience not only proved just how strong I truly am but how amazing it is when you stand fully in your own power.
As I returned back to the drawing board, I was humbly reminded that whatever is not meant for me will simply fall away to make room for that which does. I am excited to see what the future brings but for now I am enjoying the life I am creating by becoming more aligned.
