Learning to receive

After a three-month hiatus, I am finally back in cyberspace and ready to blog my life away (kinda)! So here we go..first blog post as a college graduate..

I always thought my last semester of college was going to be a breeze. Little did I know, I’d end up crying actual tears. A 27-page thesis and basically being unemployed for 4 months  gave me so much anxiety and stress.

At the time, I didn’t see it ( I was blinded by tears) but all the challenges I faced during my last semester were actually a blessing in disguise.

I knew that in order to graduate, I’d have to quit my job and dedicate my time to school. It was not an easy choice but definitely one that I do not regret.

I have been working for almost ten years and having to depend on my parents did not come easy to me. I am not someone who likes being handed something without earning it, therefore depending on my parents bruised my ego.

I quickly learned that the shame I felt for not being independent at 25 was self-induced. I had little conversations with my mind and realized that humans are put on this earth to help build each other up, and thats exactly what my parents were doing and have been doing for my entire life.

I am so grateful for all the support I received from them and the rest of my loved ones.

Asking for help does not mean you are not capable of achieving greatness. If we are open to give and receive, then we are not “taking”. We keep the circle going and allow abundance to flow for ourselves and others!
