My phone buzzed at an unGodly hour this morning. J was working.
He was talking about his job, a job that he’s worked so hard for, a job he loves. He said that a year ago he had plans of”making it” but even he didn’t know what that meant. With a knack for sales and marketing he thought, a Territory Sales Rep, and that’s the best thing he could get. To man the post and keep people in line to make the 1% happy.
And now he has a job that is so much more than that. He has a career he didn’t even know he should hope for, work for or dream for.
There are things out there that are so good, it doesn’t even occur to us to wish for them. It’s the stillness in the morning hours where you realize everything. This morning I realized that my life was at this peak and when I bowed my head to say a prayer of thanks, for the first time, it wasn’t for myself but for anyone and everyone else.
the story architect turned 4 today! this blog is a series of events that were posted for the public. Here are a lot of 4a.m. thoughts, love letters, lists, life plans and a lot of “days worth noting”.
when I go through the archive I’m relieved and grateful, for I’m not yet where I want to be but thank God I’m not where I used to be.
My grandmother is this beautiful kind soul. She always alleviates anxiety and sadness by replacing it with her hugs and encouraging giggles.
She’s why my mom is so supportive of what I do. More importantly it’s their support that got me here when I didn’t know what I was doing.
When I finished my postgrad my parents were smiling while biting their tongues. They didn’t fully understand what avenue I decided to chase my career. That only meant one thing, my grandmother was completely aloof when she read my certificate was in Public Relations.
That should trigger panic. Right? I should be concerned about their concern. Did I miss the mark on making them proud?
And the culprit to her laugh lines appeared in an adorable smile on her face. My grandmother said, “Kris, you are success.”
I repeat those few seconds in my head a lot. Before interviews, presentations and at 4 a.m. That’s how I’m here. It’s how I ended up doing what I love.
