Even though I live in the heartland of America, I’m not that southern girl who drawls out those annoying words, like ‘ya’ll’ or yonder. How far is over yonder anyway? Random side thought there…
Anyways to get to the point, I wanted to give you all a quick update on my life in the last week and ask those of you, who pray, to do so for me.
* I gave my month’s notice at my job, which I’m in sales. I’ve not had my heart there for a very very long time. It’s a company that got a little too touchy feely new age and started crossing some lines in how they handled us, the employees. I was being told not only how to be in my work, but in my state of mind which they wanted to translate to my role as a mother, wife, sister etc.. I was told that I needed to start feeling how ‘blessed’ I was just to wake up in the morning and be me!
–>Okay first anyone that reads this blog…knows I count my blessings and try not to focus on the negatives in life.
–>Secondly, I feel that only my family should be showing me how to improve on my roles as daughter, sister, mother and child in my personal life. I believe that work should stay at work and home should stay at home for the most part. I know that there are some exceptions from time to time.
I know that my employers had my best interest at heart (I hope), but it was slowing choking the life out of me to constantly have to answer to them about me in my personal life. I felt too many boundaries being crossed.
The above being said, now that I’m quitting my job I won’t have a stable income. Not that I did before as I was on commission.
I’m taking leap of faith and focusing on my photography business, and a separate sales job I’ve taken to help supplement. Sales…ugh! But it’s with a great company, and I enjoy their office environment. That makes a huge difference in productivity.
Please pray for these things. As I promote myself here locally that I will double, even triple, the level of photoshoots I’ve been doing. Pray that my new sales position provides what I need to help make ends meet until my photography gets off the ground. And pray that my hopefully new publisher will hurry up and decide to take my book on. That will mean so much to me to see my baby finally on shelves or at least on Amazon.
Thanks you all. I appreciate each and every one of you who faithfully check my blogs and leave me comments.
