Achievement

In my last post I talked about how I had reinvented my self by gong back to college

Graduation!

Graduation!

This photograph shows my achievement after my marriage had ended this photograph is a testimony that there is nothing which is beyond reach. I worked hard to enhance my confidence which had been undermined by the break up I am now back to my normal self again confidence regained and have become the most capable person I was before getting married what I have achieved is beyond my wildest dreams.

I now believe in myself again  this achievement means I  am now able to plan to do to what was the love of my life, organizing and conducting training workshops and conferences. Since I am no longer doing this as my day job I plan to use those skills  to focus on organizing and leading retreats as a free lance professional. The other thing that has emerged as a result of getting my confidence  back is to take on speaking engagements presenting paers on subjects I am passionate about. Three years ago I was invited to be a personal tutor at Luther King House Open College this has given me an opportunity to discover other options I can pursue.

The major responsibility I had in my previous job was being the head of the training department of The Methodist Church in Zimbabwe, now a new area of pecialisation has emerged as a result of the new training which I have under gone. My current employment as a pastoral worker  in Sale circuit of the British Methodist church enables me to walk alongside people in their faith journeys a very humbling experience I am privileged to have. I now can see these other possibilities of offering  myself  to the service of others  without the  constraints of marriage.

Now and then I do have a nagging feeling of wishing I had someone special to share my life with,  however this is no longer an issue as I find fulfillment in the various things  I am involved in. To be honest the end of my marriage has now freed me to do things I had never thought I  would do. A reason which motivated me to write this blog to share how bad experiences can lead to something special.

  1. I love your picture. It has confidence written all over it! Sometimes hardship makes one stronger which seems to be true in your case, albeit, not without a lot of hard work. The end of a marriage is a loss like no other and depending on the circumstances and the shared history it can be a very heart wrenching journey. I’m so happy for you. You go girl!

    • Thank you for stopping by and reading the posts on my blog. Yes it taken me a long time. I am at a happy place now that is why I am bale to write about those experiences hopefully someone can be encouraged.

    Mabel your story makes me smile as I can connect to it well. It took me many years to feel back to my self confidence and I questioned God with a Why? so many times in the early days after my 1st marriage ended. Yet my life has moved on in so many many good ways since then, I have to be very grateful for the life I have now. Not only have I found a new career in Graphic Design, I have found I have become far stronger and determined to do well in, and enjoy everything I come across in life. I also have been very blessed with a new marriage I’m so happy in. I thought the possibility of being in a happy relationship was something God did not choose for me, yet He has proved me wrong.

    Your blog is a very good idea, I know it helps greatly to write down or talk out loud all the bad times in life. I spent many hours talking to myself in the house, simply to get the bad times out and now its out I find there is space to fill with good memories and happy times.

    All the very best with your continued blog. x

        Hi No I don’t have a blog, maybe I should? Good to read yours and to share your rediscovery of yourself.

      • Thanks Anita, I started to blog because of the need to get what was on my mind which I had bottled for the past seven years. It has been a help towards finding myself again.
