Some of you may have seen on twitter that my Mom played a little prank on me yesterday. I have been anxiously waiting for this piece of mail for about two weeks now. Every day I would run home and check the mailbox hoping that something would be there for me. I sent a text to my Mom while at work asking if anything from FIT came in the mail…She responded saying “Oh yeah it did, it says congratulations, you got it?” I immediately got confused, and questioned whether or not she was messing with me. A few seconds later she did the old “April Fools!” thing, and I went back to wallow in my misery. I was mad, but I did think it was a pretty good joke…I left work a few hours later and got home to a house full of noise & laughter(which is extremely typical in my house). My nephew Eddie ran up to me and says “NONA, I have a surprise for YOOUUUUU” and then he pulls out the envelope, that actually says “CONGRATULATIONS” on the front!
I can’t really explain how I felt opening it, it was a pretty amazing feeling..and I won’t lie, tears actually started to fill up my eyes. I can finally say that I feel like I am finally finding my way to where I need to be. I feel like all of my hard work will soon pay off, and I will be able to follow my dreams. That uncertainty that was inside of me, is starting to fade, and I feel great. The past year has been tough in the sense that I have felt really out of place in my career. As you all know I have been going back and forth about so many things. I feel like I finally found a place where I belong and I can’t wait to see where my life takes me. Everything inside me changed yesterday, and every day from here on out will be different. I will keep growing, and learning, and ultimately becoming the person that I aspire to be. I also can’t wait to document my journey! It’s going to be a fun adventure, and I plan on keeping you all posted on what’s going on.
