No one likes being disappointed, hurt, or rejected. However, when we are most broken and vulnerable we are often at our best. This is one of the worst feelings in the world to be denied or rejected for something that you sincerely wanted. One of the first things that I tend to do is question God, or his decision. It is so unfortunate, and the pain stings when my very creator tells me “No” to an opportunity that I want. Although it hurts the most, I know that he holds everything in his hands: my future, my life, and all of the promises/ blessings that he has in store for me.
Last week, 5/30 I was interviewed and being considered for a position as an assistant to the First Lady(Lady O) & Vice President(Yep Joe B.) for the 2012 campaign in Chicago. Yesterday I followed up and inquired about the position, and I found out that I was not selected for the position. Distraught, hurt, and broken I had to begin to put things in perspective and be grateful for the opportunity to even be considered. I wanted this opportunity more than law school, but I don’t know what God is keeping me from. Maybe he knew that if I took this opportunity, law school would not be in my future, or I would focus on working in the White House and not the main things.
Today was one of the hardest days of my life, not getting this job. I never thought I would see the day that I would cry over a job but today was that day.Especially a job in politics. It is so amazing that politics and government is something that I fell into but I absolutely love. I know that the promises that God has for my life are greater than this temporary pain, but I must say this really, really hurt me. However I am also so humbled that God thought enough of me to consider me for such a position.
The opportunities are absolutely endless, and I don’t know what God has in store in the future. I am eternally grateful and I am ready!

No matter where you take me, please protect and keep me family. I want my father to walk me down the aisle, and for my children to know both of my parents. Please let my grandmother see me graduate law school, get married, and have children. I want my children to know their great grandmother. Preserve and strengthen them God!
Lord, let my passion parallel my profession, so that everyday I am working my purpose. Give me the opportunity to have more to give, and to create opportunities for others especially young people. I pray for greater opportunities and leaving a legacy that is worthy of your name. Let me live my life regret-free. Help me to give and be my best in all that I do, but most importantly keep me close to you.
Don’t let me settle for mediocrity, and never let me stop dreaming. Help me to be a great daughter, sister, attorney, wife, and mother. I want to be the woman you intended and created me to be.
I appreciate who you are in my life, and I thank you for being my guiding light, my rock, my creator, my love, and my friend! I am eternally grateful!

The possibility of me being in an interracial relationship is one that I warmly welcome. I desire to date someone of another race/ethnicity. While in France, I really wanted to meet a French man or while in London to meet a Brit. I would love to meet a man who has the same ambitious desire to see the world as much as I do. A culturally diverse relationship will enhance my life and add spontaneity and diversity to the relationship. This is what I want!
