I woke up one morning in July of 2012 and decided I was no longer happy with my job. While I loved the people that I was working with, the tasks I was completing each day filled me with no joy. There was no excitement; my professional life was stagnant. It was then I realized I was much too young to be having these feelings. In my head I had 3 choices; stick it out and be miserable, find a new job in a new company, or relocate to our company headquarters in California.
"So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun." Ecclesiastes 8:15 (New Living Translation)
"So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while." 1 Peter 1:6 (New Living Translation)
"Three things will last forever: faith, hope, and love. The greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13 (New Living Translation)
After much prayer and discussion, my husband & I have decided to LIVE. I was offered and accepted a job at my corporate office in California. I've moved ahead of them which isn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be. A small price to pay; we'll all be together again soon and I can't wait. Until then, I'm entertained nightly by my family via Facetime, they are a LAUGH a minute! All of these things are made possible for me because I believe in a God who grants the desires of our hearts and because I have a husband who LOVES me enough to follow me to another new city, and be both Mother & Father to our daughter while I pursue new opportunities for my career.
STOPLIGHT PRAYER: Father in Heaven, thank you giving me life and for guiding me through it. Thank you for making your will for my life the desire of my heart and for guiding me through life. Help me to listen for your voice amidst the static that tries to throw me off course.
