I’m Back!!!!

OK, I know it has been almost 4 months since the last time I posted anything on here. I have to admit, I had fallen off the wagon pretty hard, and while I was on the ground from the fall I wallowed in the murkiness of uncertainty until yesterday, (May 27, 2009).

So what happened you might ask? Well for starters I was able to finally meet one of the mentors that I have adopted along this journey, James Key. He is in town to take and pass his lab on today (May 28, 2009). We met for an early dinner and talked like we have known each other for years. He is one of the most genuine persons that I know and I am fully persuaded that he will pass his lab this go around. As we sat and talked, my motivation for this journey began to rise again.

If the conversation with James wasn't enough, he gets a call from a mutual friend who has been on this journey as well (Ayo aka Skybaba). Ayo sat for his voice lab a few days ago and finally received his results....PASS (CCIE # 24456). Not only is he a first time passer, but he did it in 6 months!!! After celebrating with James and Ayo I went home re-motivated and ready to finish what I started. 

My pastor has been teaching a series titled "Real Finishers Become Real Winners". I have committed myself to finishing this journey. My lab is scheduled for November 23, 2009 and I have 179 days before my lab attempt. I will be going to IPexpert's 2 week CCIE Voice Bootcamp from October 19 - 30, 2009 so that leaves me with  143 days to go through all of their BLS workbooks and become as proficient as I possibly can in the process.

I really feel like I am starting from the beginning and I know doing this in 6 months will be extremely challenging, but I also know that it is not impossible. Not because my buddy Ayo did it in 6 months, but because my God said that ALL things are possible if I trust him and believe. He also reminded me that I can do ALL things through Christ, who is going to replinish my strength along the way.

Well that's all for now, I won't promise that I will be posting something everyday, I can promise that I will make an attempt to post something everyday. I will most definitely promise (not to you, but to me) that I will study hard every friggin day.
