Um yea.. HELLO GALS and PALS!!

It has been over 3 years since I last posted.. Shame on me. But life happens and it takes you places and BAM.. you are right where you started. So here I am and guess what.. I didnt forget about you!!

I have quit a job, moved to another state, I graduated with my Bachelors, I am in the midst of my Masters program, and my journey continues. So since I am here again, what lesson(s) did I learn? One that sticks out the most is I learned that life is too short to contemplate on living to the fullest. Dont let anything stop you from living. NOTHING!!

My mom died suddenly in early 2016. I watched her take her last breath. It was sooo beautiful. (I will expound on this later) As I watched her lay in that bed for 90 days and stare at me, I could hear her say.. LIVE!!! Dont let anything stop you from living. Dont have the same regrets I had. Dont stop to worry and fret. Keep it moving. Dont wait until the last minute to live.

I know she was screaming this as loud as she could. I heard her. I listened. I am living!!!!!!

Yes, a lot has changed since I last blogged. One that remains the same is that I am moving forward. My plan is to continue this blog and maybe vlog some. I hope that you dont forget about me. Let 's continue this journey together.

Hey Gals and Pals...

I know I know.. Its been such a long time. TWO whole years. I wanted to RELAUNCH my blog and see if I can get my mojo back. Believe me I have been trying.

Im not going to fill you with "OMGs so much has changed" and all that mumbo jumbo, but lets start from my new beginning.

On June 5, 2014 at approx. 4pm I had a feeling come over me. It was a peace that I had longed for but didnt know if it was possible to achieve. I prayed for a sign, a tangible outlet, even an excuse to walk out of my old life to begin anew. WELP, that feeling came and I was called into my managers office. I really cant remember what exaclty she said all I know is that I found myself walking so confidently down the aisle back to my desk and gathering my things and walking out. Once I got outside a fresh breeze blew across my face. The sun seemed brighter. It just wasn't as hot as it was earlier in the day. When I reached my car and sat in it, it hit me.... I had just walked out on my job. (SIIIIIIGH)


They say a quitter never wins, however at this time I just felt like I had won the battle to the long drawn out war. I didnt have a back up plan, I didnt know where I was going to get an income from, nor did I feel bad about my decision. On the way home I stopped at McDonalds and got a plain sundae with 3 chocolate chip cookies. I knew I had made the right decision when I got home the cookies were still warm and soft. I took off my shoes and laid across my bed and throughly enjoyed my cookies and ice cream.

I want to take this next journey on my blog to express my honest thoughts and experiences as I walk this new life out. As of today November 2, 2014 I still do not have a job, I have no income, I have no one to fall back on in case of an emergency. However I do believe in a higher power and over these last 5 months he has truly kept me going. I hope that I can inspire someone to take that step to freedom and allow themselves to be led to something much more powerful than ourselves. I have to admit, sometimes I do get a little anxious and a little sad but I do not regret my decision to leave my job. I am much happier and much more optimistic about my future.

I do have some upcoming events that I look forward to. I will have a birthday in a couple of weeks and I will FINALLY graduate with my bachelors on Dec. 13, 2014. Life has been great so far and I look forward to standing firm in my word that I will not settle for anything less than peace and joy.

Over the next few posts I want to show what I have been doing over the last 5 months , besides looking for another position. I have traveled, I got a few tattoos, I have made a decision to leave the city I am in, despite owning a home. I have eaten at some great restaurants, I have visited some really cool museums, and done some
things that I would not have ever done had I still been working in the dead end job I had. Talk about a vacation....!!!!

So come back to my blog and allow yourself to be free and gain some insight on quitting and winning at the same time.

Holidays

hey gals and pals.. 

its 4th of July...YAAAAYYY.. the ultimate summer holiday.. 

yep time to put on those shorts and bug repellent.. and eat plenty of bar b que and beans .. the only day you can really let it all hang loose and have a good time!!.. i just wanted to take some time today and thank God for freedom .. sometimes we take our freedom for granted.. we must cherish it and take advantage of it. there are people in the world who cant even eat when they want to.. they have to wait to they are allowed.. and no this is not in some foreign country.. its right here in the USA.. make  sure you sow seeds of freedom today.. let others see your smile and laughter.. go to an aunt's house and sit and listen to a few stories. go to your grannys house and take her some bar b que.. let freedom ring today.. even if you have no family or friends go to the park and motivate yourself to keep on keepin it on... ya dig.. 

as I promised to be more diligent in my writing i will also promise to continue to sow seeds of freedom and love and prosperity to you in the form of this blog.. and as you can see part of my theme is leaving you with some music from my heart in these moments.. so enjoy this song and today.. 
love ginger
