She Gathers Her Wings

It’s still all sinking in. Not just that I got the job, but how it happened, like silk on silk.

I’m just a little overwhelmed by it all… to work for what I am worth is something I’ve never done before and it’s kind of doing in my head.

I am a blessed child, I never doubted it, but the walk through the last year of my life has just been unbelieveable.

I am now here, on the brink of something great again and for the first time in years limitless possibilities are stretching in front of me.

It’s not just the job. It’s the job, the money, the options it presents, and more. I’m getting more calls for work than I can literally take on, so I have to give up some in favour of others, prioritise and time manage in order to fit it all in.

So goodbye to the cold nights of working security with my cousin’s friend. Soon, it will be goodbye to staying with people and having to deal with their dramas.

I have been looking at flat listings and realise that this job will allow me literally to get just what I want, in a really toney area of London, literally any one I want in West London. I’ve never been so fortunate as to be in that position.

Ancestors! People think honouring your Ancestors is a waste of time, but for me, it’s been a way to become intimate with the grace, the ase, the flows from the spiritual realm.

More than that, I’ve also begun to work with my Ori (my personal and most important Orisa), and the two things in combination have been hauling me out of the shit, inch by inch, foot by foot. Ase! Ase! Ase!

For all of you who have regularly left comments in support of me and my struggle for self actualisation: I thank you. I thank all of you. All of you who have donated money and sent me money long distance, and sent me messages to keep my hopes up, all of you helped in whatever way you could and from the bottom of my soul, I thank all of you.

I’m still gobsmacked. This is going to take some getting used to.
