2020 has definitely been one for the books and we are only half way through it. I started this year off with my word being BOLD and indeed that is a great way to describe my world. I wanted to take a step out on faith and test myself in great measures. God said “Okay, let’s do it.” I have been talking the talk for so long and was ready to take my career/life to the next level. I made a vision book and wrote my goals in present tense as if they were already achieved. I believed in everything I wrote. I was manifesting some shit. Well, it all started to take off for me in February. I was presented with an opportunity that would definitely be a bold move. I took the leap of faith and left a career that I had for about 10 years. I was ready to change the trajectory of my life. Well, that’s what I thought, lol. I had accepted a new job and was preparing to move to a new city when all of a sudden, Ms. Rona shows up. It was the biggest curveball ever. I kept asking myself, “Are you really about to do a new thing during the worst time in America's recent history.” WTF. However, I stayed the course. I relocated during a pandemic! Here I am: new job, new company, new state, new city- new EVERYTHING!
The transition was a bit clunky for me. I had been extremely hard on myself. I was experiencing a range of emotions: doubt, overwhelmed, anxious. You name it and your girl was feeling it. I was soooo stressed over the very thing I wanted. Why? I am glad you asked. I have no earthly clue. I knew I deserved a seat at the table. I knew I had what it took to excel at the new role. I had confidence in my abilities and yet, I was worried. Maybe it was because of everything that was going on around me. I had to find some peace. One thing I did that kept me sane, and continues to help me, was to meditate. Taking deep breaths, calming my mind and repeating affirmations truly helped me. I had to take it back to speaking things that I knew and believed for myself. Something else that helped me was praying. God and I got really close over the last few month- he really is DOPE! . You want to know what else I did that more people so consider doing? Therapy. Thank goodness for my therapist. She worked hard for her money. Finally, I leaned on my tribe. If anyone tells you they can do it on their own, that is a complete LIE! You need a support system. I don’t take mine for granted!
I am literally starting a new chapter of my life at the craziest time EVER. I have learned so much about myself during these past few months(I will share that later). When you ask for something and receive it, know that it is your time!!! I was given this opportunity for a reason. I am very aware of how blessed I am. I am looking forward to this new chapter and READY for it ALL!!. It’s a BOLD season for Krissy!
PS: I pray that you and your families are safe during this time.
