Is it time to relocate?

Good Afternoon!

So far this week has been very interesting! Yesterday, I wrote a fabulous post and for some reason the computer wouldn’t let me post it! I was in a not so good mood and I took the time out to tell everyone about it. And when I figured out that my computer didn’t want to post it, I guess it was meant for me to just write it out so I can feel better. Well, I feel better but, it seems as if something is missing.

I went to lunch with a great friend of mine, we haven’t seen each other in weeks so we decided to meet up for a fulling but quick lunch. As we began to catch up, I start telling him about what was going on with me and how I feel as if I’m getting no where here in Houston. I mean I been out of school for a year and a half for crying out loud! And it seems as if I’m just stuck in this one spot, I explained that in a couple of my posts.

After he listened to me run my mouth (because I can talk someones ear off) he insisted that maybe I should relocate, travel and see what I would get into, that was including himself too. The past months I had been thinking about that. What if I did move to a different state? How would I adjust? Would I be happy? Will I still have a difficult finding a job like I am now? What about Grad school? Those questions began to wonder my mind, as I try to do some research. I mean I’m young, no children, and no husband. Majority of the people reading this would say “HECK YEA CHAR DO IT”!

I would love too, but where would I began? I mean to travel you have to have money in order too do so. I don’t know while it seems so easy to some people; like I said before doing it is something totally different. So, all I can do is pray on it! How wonderful would it be to move back to Florida, or to go to my dream school NYU? Relocation is a definite must for me, but where do I start?


Every great dream begins …

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Harriet Tubman

What a beautiful quote from the Heroine herself!   I wonder if Miss. Harriett Tubman aka “The Black Moses”,  ever had doubts when she was ducking and dodging the slave owners. I wonder if she ever felt as if she was going to get caught one day? I wonder what really made her wake up one day and say “HEY, I want to be a conductor on the underground railroad and help free hundreds of people from slavery?

Had that always been her dream? Did she have more dreams then that?  Did she ever wonder if she was going to be one of the most famous African American women in history?  She was brave, strong, and determined.  Miss. Tubman changed the world all right, she set a bar for the African American race, and women all together.

I couldn’t imagine sneaking several of people with me through out the night and lead them through the back woods, water, and from house to house. I would be petrified, every time something moved or made a sound I would be jumping and screaming, I would surely get caught. Well, I feel as if that was her calling and she had the strength, patience, and passion to lead those people, and family to freedom.

Women like her encourage me to keeping pushing and striving to be the best;and keep trying until I reach all my goals in life. Miss Harriet Tubman, I am truly grateful and humbled for a woman like you!
