Welcome back! I promised you all there would be a part 2 and here we are. If you’re just now joining, be sure to check out Lemonade Part 1. Now that you’re up to speed let’s continue 🙂
Make sure you love what you do. When you feel the love dwindling, try and find something else that may interest you or challenge you at work. There’s nothing worse than going through the motions at work and wondering if you actually love what you do. You can’t necessarily quit because you have to pay rent and feed yourself. You don’t know if you want to continue working at the establishment because it’s just not fun any more. You came into this job loving it and a few months later, you’re feeling ehhh. So do you walk away or stay?
When things don’t pan out the way you want them to, you just have to swallow that pill and move forward. If God is telling you to stay still, stay still. If God is telling you to move, move! Now if you want to be stubborn like me and try and follow your plan trust me, God will pick you right up and place you where he wants you to be. Don’t become stagnant in your line of work. Matter fact, don’t become stagnant in your life. Get yourself together and move forward. Stop looking back and feeling bad about not taking another position. What’s done is done and you have to move forward!
Now that your head is high and you are out here popping in these streets, remember to not overwork yourself. So many times in the office we want to prove things not only to others, but to ourselves as well. We promise to make impossible deadlines, we say yes to everyone around us and end up giving ourselves the short end of the stick. Often times we over work ourselves and pull all nighters to finish work or personal projects. Honey, get your rest. If I know one thing that is true, it’s that we need our rest. We need our rest to function appropriately and provide top notch quality. Get you some rest shawty and remember to breathe!
So we love what we do, followed God’s plan, left behind negative thoughts, have our confidence and rest. What’s next though? I say surround yourself with like minded people if you haven’t already done so. If you have people in your circle who aren’t trying to make moves and stay in the same spot they’ve been in for the past 4 years or more…Bye Felicia. But seriously, everyone isn’t going to be happy for you. Some people are going to be jealous and some are just going to straight up tear you down. If you’re surrounded by those chasing after the money, dreams and goals, you’re bound to succeed together. As Bey said, Always stay gracious best revenge is your paper.
Thank you as always for checking out the post and let me know what you think!
