I'm Coming Out!

As i write i sing this song, only i have forgotten the artist who sang it...doesn't matter though...at least not to me! It captures the essence of how i feel

I'm coming
I'm coming out
I want the world to know...

Where have i been? I haven't even visited my own blog in weeks! See, my people so much has been happening!

This update is not about any inspiring topic, it's about moi and things that have been happening in my life in the past few weeks that i've been awol, nah it's not another Ghana trip, this time it's a journey of my life.

Ok so i finally quit! I stepped out in faith, after much deliberation and prayer between hubby and i, we decided it was time to move out of the comfort zone and launch my net into the deep! After several months of dissatisfaction and asking myself shall i, shall i not, I acted on my own message, sat at my computer and sacked my boss! Yes i mean i fired my boss! I had typed a sample of my resignation about 6 months earlier, just did not have enough guts to do it but i guess the time is right now!

To a lot of colleagues and friends, i took a very wrong decision, why would you leave a job you have at hand for something you do not have yet? So many tried to dissuade me. So are you going to become a housewife now? A bird in hand is better than two in the bush! No! I beg to disagree...the bird in your hand might be dead already, why not go look for something fresh? Why cling to something that is dying or not meeting your needs!

No man would ever excel without taking risks. If i do not pursue my dreams now or fulfill the nudges in my heart, when will i get to do these things? Life is not about getting a job and just doing it. For me, it's about doing something i love and contributing my quota to my society...i have been able to sit down and come up with a few things i love to do and after 6 years of graduation, i am reinventing myself and on the path to becoming the best that i can be! I am still thinking and working on it and oh yes i will get there!

And of course! Thanks to my wondeful hubby who sees the best in me all the time and encourages me to acknowledge the good things in me!

Welcome to your new season!

You sound so much like someone i know (moi) right after she stepped out in faith believing... we are mostly renewed at the threshing floor.

Apply more of your lessons from the ATM machine...just dont stop pushing. The darkest hour is right before dawn (i would know - i just saw my own dawn break)

Mythots said...

Patti Something sang that song, or is it Diana Ross?

Understand the feeling of moving out of a comfort zone. Risks just have to be taken. I did it last month and my friends still think im crazy to have left my job for uncertainty

Jaycee said...

Awww...congratulations on ur new step in life dearie.

See, as far as you commit everything into God's hands u'll be fine at the end of the day. Cast all ur burdens on Him...

And remember...it may not be easy starting something that u're passionate abt...it may not come easy, it may be a little tough at the get-go...but when u're famous, u'll forget the pain and u'll laugh out loud as u sign ur autographs.

Cheers, all the best...

Afrobabe said...

Congrats babe...it's been a long long while...glad to have u blogging again.

I know exactly what you were going through cos I went through it myself when I left MTN...people wondered, it baffled them that I would leave what to them was a great job but I felt I was more than that, I was unhappy and going to work every morning was a job on its home...
Leap with faith babe, I assure you, you will be glad you did...
