I'm not so sure many people read this here at all... But one of the best days has got to be today. We have been struggling for what seems like an eternity and today..... My landlord came for rent. It just so happens I am ahead of the game! God is Great. And I feel so humbled. Hard work does pay off....
Now that 2021 has started it's important to look forward to better times in the new year. Understanding how we coped with 2020 can also teach us a valuable lesson about what we need and want in our daily lives to stay positive.
I’ll start! In 2020 I was helped by:

I'm thankful to know that my career opportunities are numerous and awesome, thanks for a public forum to look for potential dream jobs, my current job, is a blessing and it helps to pay the bills, but hopefully someday I'll find that perfect job, which uses all of my skills and experience from a lifetime of various jobs.
It was my first time getting a praise on here, from Susanmarie I was trying to view it and comment back, I accidentally hit the wrong key and it disappeared!! Smh I really appreciate that Susanmarie if your reading this! Thanks pumpkin.......I was so freaking excited man :(
4 years ago a stranger from Minnesota saved my life while I was in Oregon skiing. I don't remember the accident, I don't remember going to Oregon, I hardly even remember that summer. To be honest, I never knew how serious it was. Fast forward 4 years and now I am living in Utah driving Lyft while I finish school. About a month ago I was driving on a late Friday night and got a request. I go pick up a couple outside of a busy concert that had just ended. On the short ride back to their apartment we get to talking about skiing and the guy tells me he used to work up at Mt. Hood. I exclaimed how I had been there before but had hurt myself and didn't remember much. He tells me he was working there around the time I was. I described (from what I had heard happened) myself overshooting a jump and crashing hard. In disbelief, he asks if I was flown in a helicopter to the hospital, which I confirmed. Next he asks if I was from California. When he asked this I knew he knew something.
Suddenly the realization hit us both, he had saved my life almost 4 years before. This man told me exactly what happened and was the first to reach me when I stopped moving. He helped remove my bloody, shattered goggles from my face, he kept my seizing body from rolling down the hill, and he watched as the paramedics flew me away in a Life-Flight helicopter.
Even crazier was this man never got closure from the accident. He never knew what happened to me after I flew away.
Suddenly here I was, giving the man who saved my life an Lyft ride. I am still shocked that I met you, thanks for saving my life Chris Frost, I owe you a round!
Crazy to think of all the insane connections. I grew up in California, Chris grew up in Minnesota. I traveled to Mt. Hood, he worked there. Years later he moves to Salt Lake City, so do I. Of the hundreds of Lyft drivers in Salt Lake that night I just happen to match with him and we just happen to talk about skiing/snowboarding in Oregon. Even weirder, we both share the name Chris.
Still in shock over the whole experience.
I seriously can't believe I found a full time job being that the construction industry is kinda competitive when looking for a job in that kinda industry and I don't have a lot of experience on the job but only a lot of knowledge of different processes. But I've been looking for a job since December 11, 2017 and no one actually had given me a call back about an interview, so something told me to go and give my former welding instructor a visit at the college and talk to him. I went over there and I told him about me not being able to find a job at the moment and he asked me if I wanted to work for Golden Dragon Copper and I said yes I do and he gave them a call and that next day I had an interview. I kinda feel like there's something that God wants me to focus in on at this moment, just like when I was looking for a job a when I graduated college and around the 13 of June 2016 McDonald's was the only company that called for an interview but I'm glad for that because it worked around my college schedule and I know for a fact of who's really in charge of everything when it comes anything and everything, God is definitely the one. I remember at church, the first Sunday of this month there was a sermon that the preacher had preached and he mentioned that God actually wants us to be productive about things in the year of 2018, I think this is definitely that time for that. #Thankful #blessed #job #fulltime #employed #GodisAmazing
