I know that it has been a while since you have heard from me as a lot of things have happened in my life that I never expected to happen. Today, I want to write about the unexpected and what I did when so many unexpected things happened all at one time. Let’s start with the resolution to the last blog post that I had made.
At the beginning of April, I was battling some inner demons. These demons caused me to overstep, and be super overbearing inside of a friendship, which in return ended that friendship for what I thought was going to be forever. For seven weeks, I did everything I could to just get this friend back and for me to make everything better. On Wednesday night I had enough of fighting, I prayed “Lord, if this friendship is meant to be and you want us to be in each other’s life then you are going to have to take control and make this happen” The following day, I was supposed to go to a concert here in Evansville. I debated not going, I wasn’t feeling the best and something told me that I needed to go and just enjoy myself. I walked in, got myself a grilled chicken caesar salad and went set at a table. I turn around and in walks the friend that I had overstepped with and had lost. After about two hours, we both saw each other, and we talked to put the past behind us and moved on. I will say this that seven weeks of growth was one of the best things that I ever experience in my life. NOW, our friendship is something that I could have only wished for in April.
Following that, I departed my job of 6 years as General Manager of a Retail Computer Store here in Evansville IN, which was very unexpected. I expected to make my career there at this Retail Computer Store. So after departing from that position I was lost on what I was going to do. Was I going to chase my dream of owning my own company or was I going to continue to live the day to day making someone else money with my talents? After some thought, I decided to go work for a friend of mine at a local car dealership. I worked there for about 3 weeks when I realized it wasn’t for me so I decided that it was the time that I finally chased my dreams and to do what I had always dreamed of and that was to own my own business so on September 1st, 2018 I officially started Social Guru. The last couple of months has been weird and surprisingly fun.
During this time I have learned so much about myself. One of the biggest lessons that I have learned is things that are supposed to happen will always find a way.
Did I ever expect myself and this friend to ever reconnect? NO
Did I ever expect to leave the place that I thought was going to be my lifelong career? NO
Did I ever expect to be reinventing myself, my career, and my life at this point in life? NO
Now here is the hard lesson part of the blog. This blog post lesson is Patience. Patience is the key to also everything. You ask what do I mean by that? What do I mean that Patience the KEY?
Well, think about ten major problems that you have had in your life? With Patience probably more than half of them worked out for you, and in a way that was good for you and both parties involved. Am I correct? For me that is one of the hardest things in the world, is patience.
There is only one person that knows what your future holds that he is not on this earth. More of the story to come next week?
As Always, until next week continue to grind,
