That moment when you realize that your team is no longer a reason that could hold you back or make you stay.
Those days when you come across people who are being “less of a professional”. Hold your ground but treat them with respect, even if they treat you otherwise. Be patient. Stay humble. Be civil.
That time when you finally give up on your vision, because one woman alone couldn’t possibly do it. You and your team have to believe and work towards achieving that, but if it’s only you who find that important, the things you dream of are never gonna happen. People are sometimes afraid of change and improvement. Let go, and don’t blame yourself for things you have no control over.
Why are we drawn to certain people?
As I grow older, I realize I have a deep affinity for these kinds of people:
- one who likes philosophical discussions, and shares about his life, strengths, weaknesses, fears, hopes, dreams and childhood memories
- one who loves the moon, the stars, and the universe
- one who shows sincere kindness towards children and the elderly
- writes or loves poetry
- prefers handwritten notes, letters
What’s with the question?? I just remembered Carla. She’s one of the awesome people I met this year. With the short time we’ve been together, I had so much fun. Her personality is very interesting; she’s like a Rubik’s cube to me. Haha. And I feel warmth. God knows I’d love to know her better.
So it would seem, this post is really just about me missing my “mommy” Carla. And everytime I miss her laughter, I just read the “Thank You” card she wrote. And then a smile is painted on my face. 🙂
As I lay here in bed, staring blankly at a book cover and with my earphones on, memories of the past weeks crossed my mind. A few happy ones, mostly worrisome. And once again I am reminded of the big questions in life: What are the things that matter most to me? What are my priorities? My own little troubles and challenges seem so insignificant when I think of my cousin who’s fighting for her dear life.
So I guess this is me feeling a tad bit sad. Painful menstrual cramps ain’t helping either. Wish my fairy godfather would relieve my pains.
Lord, I lift it all up to you. I pray for everyone’s safety and good health. Safe travels for my mentor, too.
And for tonight, I just want to rest. And let things be.
So it’s been a long time since my last post! A lot of things had happened and there’s so much I wanted to write about; wanted being the operative word.
I got into the habit of writing stuff but never having the time nor the will to finish them, so they all ended up in my drafts; it’s like sending a text message but with no one as recipient so they stay in your drafts. I’m hoping to change that, though.
Just installed the wordpress mobile app, and I’m writing this post on my phone. So here’s to hoping I would update this blog regularly from now on.
A cold rainy night! Sleep well, my dear.
It was probably around July or August of this year when Marte (one of my teammates) approached me and told me that I was chosen as one of her ministry partners. Their organization, the Victory Church, aims to send missions to different countries to evangelize or spread the word of Christianity. In order to do this, they would need ministry partners to help finance these missions. I was chosen as one, and I had donated P10,000 to help send her to a mission in Vietnam this November. (Each missioner needs around P45,000 to cover the expenses for the entire trip.)
She just arrived from the 10-day mission and as a token of appreciation, she had given me this. 🙂
Hmm.. a bookmark.. Could this be a sign? (I’m planning to get an MBA next year, but that’s another story.)
And a note… 🙂
If you’re a night owl just like me, you may sometimes find it difficult to sleep earlier than your usual bedtime. There are instances wherein you want to hit the sack right away, especially when you’re exhausted after a long day at work. Hours had passed and yet, you’re still wide awake. What do you do in times like this?
Read A Book
I find that reading a book for about thirty minutes or so while lying in bed, makes my eyes tired. Eventually, I’ll fall asleep. 🙂 I have finished The Art of War just recently. And now, I’ve started reading this self-help book.
Play a Game
I’ve been spending less and less time on Facebook for the last few months. The reason? Clash of Clans. 🙂
