After totalling my new car and being unemployed for a time here are some things I learned about myself. One of the very first things that became apparent was my immediate lack of patience and faith in the process. The process being the journey to getting a new job, finding a vehicle to take me to and from work, and getting on my feet in general. I waa not down to wait… for anything. Eventually I would have to get over that really quickly but in the beginning was hard and I was becoming restless fast.
The next thing that I learned was that I am capable of more than just working a nine to five and playing video games. I’m capable of more than understanding how social media works and all that jazz. In the months since my accident I’ve learning to film and edit videos for use on other platforms like YouTube and Facebook, I’ve learned how to better use social media to tell my story, I’ve learned that I’m capable of so much more than just the bare minimum and that was empowering.
Most often I found that when I failed to trust in my eventual rise and tried to rush things along, or take shortcuts, I ended up not progressing and stayed stagnant. So now I’m at the point where I’m not cutting corners in this journey, I’m not going to rush anything in my life anymore! I’m leaving myself in the”mud” and I’m going to trust in the process.
I know I have many more trials to go through and I know that I have to work hard and persevere in order to reach where I’m heading and achieve my goals.
