I'm 30, FINALLY Moving Out & It's Okay
I’ve been waiting for this moment for what seems to be my entire life, well at least until after college.
I am officially getting my own place with the character (coated cement floors) I desire and the best part with no roommate! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-social I’ve just been done with the roommate thing since college.
Why so long, why not sooner? Believe me I tried. Every time I would make a move to actually move out, it was HARD, like digging up concrete with a spoon hard! During this time, I was in my late twenties. Every door closed, my credit wasn’t right even though I was in the 670-700 range, major side eye. I remember searching for apartments and realizing more that everything is NOT as it seems. The picture says live here, but the place says murder scene.
From constant doors closing to just plain difficulty, I realized it wasn’t my season to move out. This sucked A LOT! Throughout the years, I’d hear snide comments and was questions regarding my living with my parents. I did a Taylor Swift and shake it off!
Fast forward to fresh 30 and, it’s my time now. Every year, I’d put a representation of a house/apartment on my vision board with a date set to move. I never lost hope because I knew it was coming, I just didn’t know when. So, this year I did the same. I set my apartment move in date to June 10th. Then one day during worship, God told me to move my date up! Y’all, I was so excited. I moved my date way up, to April 18th.
I would do a flip if I could. Since, I’ve done as my God said. Everything has been easy peezy lemon squeezy. I have received nearly everything I needed from my best friend Aja! She blessed me with the items I put on my list, color included. The best part is, I didn’t share my list or colors with her. God touched her heart and I pray she receives a one hundred fold return.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
Sometimes we desire things in our timing. Our timing would mess us up. God, being the AWESOME father that he is, guards us and guides us from hurtful missed steps. It is up to us to pay attention as He guide us unless we fall on our own accord, feeding ourselves to the wolves so to speak. Think, What would have happened if I forced my way out and moved too soon?
Have you had a Finally moment, share it with me here!
