Though, when spirit speaks within the beauty of love, respect, and protection with the further generosity of vital welfare, I absolutely respond with the ultimate gratitude.
I’ve worked in retail for fourteen years and I’ve professionally worked in health care for six and a half years.
I always keep more than one job.
At the beginning of the year, when I changed my work schedule at one of my jobs to fit in with my academic course everything worked out just fine.
Then, almost a month afterward, one of my managers in the health care field asked me if I would change shifts with another employee who decided that she wanted to go back to school to enroll in some courses.
I told her no because I was in school too and wasn’t going to interfere with or jeopardize my plans to advance myself further in what I may consider to do within life. Where the hell did, she have the nerve to think I would sacrifice my studies for some other employee, and after I already had made a schedule change with her (the manager) myself to conveniently attend school on certain days.
“Oh, I didn’t know if you were still continuing with that”, she had said to me.
I had never given her any details about my course as it was none of her business yet I didn’t appreciate her calling me asking me to change my schedule as if the other person was more important than me so I quit right there on the spot over the phone and left her hanging just like that. Don’t fuck with me!
I still had another job that I could go to while I attended school. In between time, I still looked for another job as back up.
When I found one and was about to take orientation the Corona Virus shit broke out. Everything was coming to a halt, even school temporarily shut down.
Even as some jobs had put a hold on hiring, I managed to get employed at not one but with two other companies who were still in the midst of employing individuals since I was considered an “essential employee” within the health care field.
On one of the new jobs I needed an up to date physical so in March I went for my yearly physical but the doctor didn’t want to clear me for work because of the paranoia over the Corona Virus shit. She told me to stay at home.
I was pissed off because I like to make my money; so, I went home and emailed her a nasty little note telling her that I wasn’t worried about catching no Corona Virus and I asked her if she were going to pay my bills?
Then, the second new job came through where I didn’t need any medical clearance, yet a few days before work the schedule was cancelled temporarily until this Corona Virus shit dies down.
All together now I have three jobs that I haven’t been able to go to. Yet I have been blessed with means to survive without having to worry about anything. So, I had to sit back and take notice at what was staring me right in the face.
No matter how hard I tried to go out there to continue to work the universe was telling me no, not at this time of pandemic crisis and at the same time I wasn’t left hanging within any financial woes.
The powers that be didn’t want me or my family caught up in that shit going on out there.
“Spirit” literally isn’t any joke. When we genuinely and wholeheartedly walk in spirit the essence protects us and sees us through. We are carried thoroughly, supplied with our needs and wants until we are able to again carry ourselves once the coast is clear.
