This week, I started work back at The Home Depot. Now, I know what many of you might be thinking, especially those of you on the west coast, but just hold the phone for a second!
My banker has advised me that I need to have a full time job in order to qualify for a loan. On the same day that I received this advice, my former store manager called me. When I picked the phone up, he said “congratulations your interview went great, you can start work on Monday.” I was confused; I hadn’t been interviewed nor even applied for that matter. When I realized what was happening, I consented.
I didn’t get my old job back, or my pay grade. I most certainly didn’t get my office back. But I did get all of the vacation time that I had been accruing for the last year!
I am going to work this job because I have a dream not because I have I desire to make this into a career. As many of you know, I feel impressed to open a bed and breakfast. I feel like flipping houses may be bridge I have been looking.
I have a plan, a six-month plan and if that plan works, which I hope it does, I wont have to work at The Home Depot anymore. Flipping houses is a huge part of the plan but its not the most important. There are other things that are far more critical like investing in people, building community, and having a devoted prayer life. These are just a few of the goals.
I bought a white board and hung it in my room. On this board I have written my plans. I am committed and filled with passion. If this doesn’t work; I will revaluate things and go from there in six months. Whatever happens I am going to try to be joyful. I want Gods will regardless. I don’t want to look back and say to myself what if I had only tried?
