I have been in "my season" for a while now...since the beginning of 2009. Many blessings have been poured down on me and I am grateful for each and every one.
First, it was challenging, but I have graduated from nursing school!!! If I could shout that from a mountaintop, I would! The graduation ceremony is in June and I am looking forward to it. In the meantime, I will be taking boards and looking for a job. I am looking forward to all that the future has to offer. To anyone reading this that needs some encouragement...NEVER GIVE UP ON/LET GO OF...YOUR DREAM! I won't get into exactly how long it took me, but although I am young, I have been trying to accomplish this for quite some time! When your parents or role models tell you "you can be anything and do anything you want" it is TRUE. Just grab hold and don't look back. When roadblocks seem to come out of nowhere...take a detour.
Next, while I was trying to force myself to get back on the dating scene...Mr. Right came along...yeah, like out of nowhere. I can say, however, my eyes were open and I'm glad they were. God has a sense of humor too, and often blesses us when we least expect it. I had prayed for a man with his qualities because the Lord tells us to ASK for what we want. We may not get it WHEN we want it, but it is okay to ask. After I prayed, I continued with my life and had faith that my prayer would be answered.
Finally, I went back to church today...and boy did I miss it. The word was awesome and I had a great time. I am glad I will have more time to worship in the house of the Lord.
I hope all is well with you all. Until my next post, be blessed!
So below are the descriptions of three guys I was considering dating:
1. Met him through his cousin, very nice young man, respectable, driven, educated, has very strong religious views, no children
2. Nice guy who has showed interest for a while, never took him seriously, jealous tendencies, hard worker, has children
3.An old friend, admirable, educated, accomplished, respectful, we grew apart i.e. LIFE, but now seem to have the same life interests, no children
The first guy I crossed off of the list is #2...I mean come on...jealous tendencies...NO, not going to entertain that. Like I said in the Decisions...Decisions... post he was a cool guy, but I was not willing to take the risk of getting in too deep with him and his inferiority complex.
Unfortunately #1 & #3 did not really get a chance...hear me out...lol. #1 has great qualities, but is very stern when it comes to his opinions. I can respect someone who stands up for what they believe in, but I am very headstrong myself and I knew we would butt heads regarding values, etc. #3...again, great qualities, but I have learned before to be wary of people from my past...they are there for a reason.
I can say, however, that throughout the short-lived "dating" process, what I like and what I don't like was reconfirmed. And that is a good thing.
