making my own path

making my own path

well i am officially no longer in the corporate world. without a 401k or benefits, just standing on my own two feet. nothing is guaranteed, but i’m set on making my own way. i’ve preached on and on about this but i’m so glad to be done with the corporate bullshit. i want to do something that i’m passionate about, that fulfills me. so here the real work begins.
ill be working part time as a waitress. quick and dirty work. i loved waitressing. and i have some other odd ventures i’ll be doing to take care of the bills.  but i’m excited to learn new things and evolve creatively.

i dont have much to say today. i’ve been revamping my itunes library and i ran across this old gem a couple days ago.

 

love, me by collin raye

i read a note my grandma wrote back in 1923

grandpa kept it in his coat

and he showed it once to me

he said boy you might not understand

but a long long time ago

grandma’s daddy didnt like me none

but i loved your grandma so

 

we had this crazy plan to meet

and run away together

get married in the first town we came to

and live forever

but nailed to the tree where we were supposed to me

instead

i found this letter

and this is what it said

 

if you get there before i do

dont give up on me

ill meet you when my chores are through

i dont know how long ill be

but i’m not going to let you down

darlin wait and see

and between now and then

until i see you again

ill be lovin you

love, me

 

i read those words just hours before

my grandma passed away

in the doorway of the church

where me and grandpa stopped to pray

i know i’d never seen him cry

in all my 15 years

but as he said these words to her

his eyes filled up with tears

 

if you get there before i do

dont give up on me

ill meet you when my chores are through

i dont know how long ill be

but i’m not gonna let you down

darlin wait and see

and between now and then

until i see you again

ill be lovin you

love, me

 

i remember hearing that song sooo many years ago and i thought the story was so sweet.

 

stay tuned. <3
