I am just writing this post and realizing how much time has flown. Well for me at least. November feels like it has lasted for two seconds. Last year November was a just a dark time for me. I had graduated three months before that and I sat there on November with 49 job applications sent out and not even one regret. Worst part was how every other part of my life was just a wreck! Now don’t get me wrong I couldn’t be happier today with the way things turned out but when you are in that situation you see no better days ahead.
Not getting a job wasn’t the hardest part but what else can I do? I mean if the corporate world rejects you, there’s not so many other options for you – So I thought. If you have been through the same, you probably understand what it feels like when you rack your brain to discover a hidden talent inside, that you may not know of and come back empty. Now I have to tell you I am an average performer in school. I seldom have A’s neither do I have D’s. That’s to tell you I easily get lost in between there and I rarely stand out. Probably explains why my CV’s never stood out. Lol
This is how the idea of a blog came about. On March this year I went on to google and started doing research on how to start up a successful blog and for me, I had found it. The thing I had spent so much time thinking about and soul searching. My transition from a jobless depressed graduate to a full time blogger worked out seamlessly and that was sign enough for me that I was going to do what it takes to make it happen for myself.
This year has had its up and downs but I feel like I am back to the girl who is ready to reach for the stars. My greatest discovery has been that I am the problem and still the solution. So at any one point I have both. With that, I feel like it really is okay for time to move at whatever pace it may because it is possible to lose sooo much in one year and gain just as much in the same year.
Blogging is sharing and I wouldn’t be doing you justice if I didn’t share my story with the hope that one of my readers has shared my story. Remember YOU are your own light and your own darkness so keep the lights on in your life till the sun rises and shines on you.
