As human beings we hate to admit when we are wrong, or that we made a wrong choice. Especially when we shared our good news with such excitement and got everyone else all hyped up. Well, a mistake is only a mistake if you don’t learn from it. When I say learn, I don’t necessarily mean that you would never do that again. If you are the type of person who takes risks, then you will definitely do something similar the next time. So what! I’m talking about learning to move on in faith knowing that every thing happens for a reason, and most of the time things happen to move you to a place you would have never gone on your own.
When I gave up a full-time job with good benefits only to learn that the job I was getting is part-time, of course, I was devastated. I even tried to go back to the prior employer, but chose not to go through the whole application/interview process again. Instead I chose to return to my first love (senior care), which affords me the opportunity to have more control over my schedule, thereby allowing me the freedom to accept speaking engagements that I previously couldn’t even consider. So what I thought was going to be a tremendous loss of income and a stress producer has turned out to be the best decision that I could have made. I have always believed that life is an adventure not a worry, and if we want to pursue our dreams, then stumbling blocks must become our stepping-stones. I’m happy! I get to do what I love at work, and live my dream of becoming a full-time motivational speaker.
