Told my friend that I had an ominous feeling about going to America. Without consulting her, I took the matter into my own hands and trusted my gut-feeling, cancelling the trip and throwing our 11 year relationship into disarray.
I received an email from a coordinator regarding my removal from a company where I taught. I was completely confused by the ordeal, and my students were the one that ultimately suffered the most because of personal preferences.
Later realized that the excuses to my removal were controversial. I began to believe that I was the epicenter of a racial attack, and then the verbal threats from my coordinator began. It’s hard to see eye-to-eye when one is Anglo and another is African American.
November 18th – The Evening
After hearing such disgusting remarks, I didn’t look at the insults by face-value, but rather by the emergence of something so wonderful and so magnificent that was trying to make way into my life. I applied for about 50 jobs in over 6 different countries.
Monday, November 20th – WHOA!
Ten jobs in China, one job in Honduras, another job in Costa Rica and others scattered around the planet — begging for my services. Unsung hero came into my life the morning of Monday, asking me if I was still working at my present job. LOL! Was that a coincidence? She told me about a very significant project she would like me to do. Three hours later, I was given another project. Three hours after that, around 2pm, I received an anonymous text message from someone giving me the biggest project of my life, teaching people from an embassy.
The week of the 27th…
I was offered a job and now the attachment with my present job no longer matters. If something does arise, and it will, I can leave without any equivocations. Just a few days later, I looked for high-rise condos in the heart of Bangkok since that is going to be my next point of living (Costa Rica job never contacted me back after emailing initially).
I will be moving into my new condo the 22nd of December — marking the best present I’ve ever received in my life. I have four new jobs who will want my services very shortly. I got new projects, viewership, and so many other unbelievable things happening in my life.
Get this, everyone. This all came from what? Being removed from a company because I’m African American.
Now ask yourself…….”wait, how? Another racial issue that’s about as common as seeing a bird came roaring into your life, and now you have 6 projects, a job offer, and four other suitors? How do you do it, Arsenio?”
Not only that….if I had gone to America this upcoming December, I wouldn’t have been able to move into my new condo, negating a big move to Bangkok which would’ve resulted in losing some of my projects and possibly even a job opportunity.
