l.i.b.e.r.a.t.i.o.n. theory

love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

when God speaks…

listen.

about a week or two ago, i got a call from a friend that i haven’t spoken to in a long time. this friend was more like a sister to me because we could go months without talking, but when we did, it was just like jumping on the bicycle again. so many of our life experiences were the same and i never felt like i needed to explain myself with her. but as things happen, we sort of drifted apart, not because of a falling out or anything. but because we got side-tracked by this thing called life. and then i got married and moved away.

today, i got a call from one of my closest friends from college. same story- when we hang out and talk, it’s as if time hadn’t passed. but we can let many months lapse due to being sidetracked by life. and as any of my friends will tell you, i’m HORRIBLE with calling people. as a matter of fact, i just got an email from my mother about not calling my father yesterday for his birthday. i’m a terrible daughter. sue me.

anyway, i digress (that’s another blog for another time). it seems like God is rekindling all of my new york friendships and further confirming for me that new york is truly home and the center of all things “me.” even my teaching situation. everything sounded good at the time, but it’s truly not for me. i’m feeling burnt out and it’s still august. i know it’s just confirming that i’m truly done with teaching in this capacity.

so all that to say, i’m starting a new ticker with my countdown to new york. i’m tired and i just hope that this year (i count years by a school calendar) will be one that allows for closure and solidifying all the lessons i will need for returning home.

today’s affirmation: when God speaks, listen.

    I can relate to this so well. Hang in there until you’re able to go home. Somehow knowing you’re leaving can make the time passing a little more bearable.

    ^^ABSOLUTELY. the ticker actually made me smile because it’s a definite, no longer a hypothetical.

    I can relate too. It take a lot to admit when its time to let something go. Work/Career wise, it really took me a LOONG time to learn that, but it was such a powerful lesson. Things that were important were no longer important because truth be told, my happiness and sanity trumps all of it.

    Sis, I hope you can find something to keep you occupied as you tie loose ends and close this chapter of your life (residence wise). I think the most important thing is to take from it what you learned while in TX and use it from this point forward.

    I’m glad that you are reconnecting with some of your old friends, how exciting! God is awesome isn’t he?! 🙂

    WOW….when god speaks, listen. I really need to get in tune. I make countless errors in judgement because I ignore that gut feeling (I have known that the first clear thought in your head is God’s voice). If I would have listen, I would have never taken this teaching position……
