(November 4, 2008) America embarks on a journey for change.
For years and years I've been on a journey for change... trying to change my destiny into something that I want it to be. So far it's been one of up's and down's, but overall it's been
successful. I've had many small wins throughout my journey some of which have made their
way here on this blog. Determining and fulfilling your own destiny is no easy task, but if you believe in it, work at it, and never give up on it, then it can surely happen. Looking back it was such an amazing day from the time I woke up in the morning to go vote, until the time I got home from work to find out we had a new president elect. Once the news hit my family and I... we were immediately stunned followed by tears of joy. That night and following morning I did a lot of thinking about how different things are now compared to the way it was growing up. A lot of different thoughts came to my mind, but the one that still hits home even to this day is how my father tried to start his own business making cookies, and for a several reasons(economy, funds, 4 children to raise, etc) wasn't able to see it all the way through to fruition. So he did what any decent husband/father would do... he got a job that would support his family. Twenty five years later I find myself in the same boat... I have my own business which get's very little attention because of my day job which(praise god) more than supports my family. However,
I feel as though its my destiny to see my own business all the way through to fruition. For my father and all the Frederick's/Wallace's that have walked before us who had their own dreams and ambitions to have their own businesses. I feel as though their is no better time than now to start that journey of change... from this moment on I will flip things around and make the leap to support my family on my own business. To quote our 44th president - "The time for change is now!" With god by my side and the love and support from my family I know ODev Solutions will be a success. ;-)
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. "
