Take That Leap of Faith

    I am ready to just speak to someone today because my spirit is on 100 right now. Listen, when you manifest something, you have to believe in your heart that it will come to life. I am living it right now. Another thing, when you make plans best believe God will either make it happen or switch it up a bit. For the past 2 years, I have been battling with whether or not I should stay at my place of employment. For those of you that don't know I WAS working at a preschool as a VPK teacher for 6 years and this school year a Kindergarten/First grade class opened up and I taught it. If you haven't read that blog, you can click here What Led Me To Teaching Kindergarten/First Grade anyway, for months I was stressed and started feeling discouraged (this had nothing to do with my students, I love my class) it was just a mental thing.  I am still on my positivity kick and I realized I was not practicing what I was preaching if I am coming into an establishment not happy and ready to give it all up. With the same breath, I am telling y'all to not let negative energy get to you and if you are not happy somewhere to just leave.

    My mental health was declining and I caught myself being upset more than usual and I know that I had to do something quick. So, I started taking mental health days and stared acting as if I was not working. I would wake up in the morning, take the girls to school, come home and sit in my patio and write in my journal with a cup of coffee. I would treat my whole day as if I did not have a job. I envisioned this everyday. I acted out the life I wanted to live.

    If you do not own a journal to write down your visions, thoughts, plans etc, then I suggest you get on that now because, you will have that "aha" moment and when you go back and read what you wrote prior to that moment, you will be in shock. A few weeks ago I was telling my husband I wanted to quit but I felt bad for the class. I even planned when my last day at the job would be. I asked for a sign. All of this was written in my journal 2 weeks ago. God gave me 2 signs and he did not want me to finish out the school year. Even though that was my intention. Teaching is my thing and my passion BUT, it will be in a better environment at the right time. Right now, I am enjoying my family and getting things done. 

    Only you have the power to determine how you want to live your life and who will be part of it. If you feel like you can do better, take that leap of faith. Always remember, your mental health comes first. If your gut is telling you something isn't right.... IT'S NOT! Manifest the life you want to live and act like it already happened!!! Trust the process and do the work.

    Hopefully this is the sign that you needed to take that leap of faith. Good luck, You Got This Girl! My ebook also talks about taking that leap of faith with different situations in our everyday lives.

Later Love Bugs,

I love this blog..... it’s making me realize more and more that I need to just go instead of holding on to things that’s messing me up mentally
