I think everyone can judge a person who loves solitude differently. There are a lot of times when I enjoy doing things on my own because in there I find peace. However some people would tend to judge you and say that your being anti-social or your breaking off from the group. Its really a misjudgement instead of just respecting the needs of that person.
Crying had never been and will never be a sign of weakness for me. It just means that you had enough of what you’ve been going through and crying is one of the ways to let it all out.
It’s both a weakness and a strength but I’m not ashamed to admit that feeling love again is something that I can do now. I haven’t have the fortune of being in love and being loved back for the past years. Luckily, love knocked on my door half way through the year. It was an unexpected love and with the most unexpected person, too. Feeling love is both a gift and a curse. It can really take you way up high and it can also tore you apart. But conquering it together makes it more meaningful and inspiring.
Saving up has been a debate for me and my mom ever since I started working. She always tend to splurge the excess money she has instead of saving it for emergency purposes. I’m not one to spend money especially if its an excess because I believe in saving up. Whenever I go shopping or grocery, I tend to have a list of things I just need to buy so that I can stick to my budget. If there’s an excess to my money, I think through of what to do with it. In the end, I just keep it for some other purposes in the future. There are some things we thought we need but if you still have those same things at your disposal, then don’t buy yet and just save it up. It’s better to avoid unnecessary purchases and save up for future expenses.
I love my family, my selected close friends and my boyfriend. I always try to be present in all events in their lives whether it maybe happy or sad. Whenever there are conflicts between us, I always try to fix it by talking to them about it. I love giving gifts and treating them out because its my way of showing them how special they are to me. I always remember special moments or things they like because for me, its showing how much important their wants to you. And lastly, I try to balance my time so that I can spend it all to them because time is the most important gift you can give someone.
Communication is one my weakness and I’ve been struggling for it for a very long time now. I always settle in what I know. If there are more information needed, I tend to ask someone to know it in my behalf or if there is no one around, I just settle. It sucks having this attitude that’s why I’m trying so hard to overcome this weakness. I know I should be more able to talk confidently especially now that I’m a grown up.
I wish that I’ll take time loving myself more then and not be head over heels over some guys. But the thing I wish then was that I transferred to one of the companies who had partnered with the company we went to in Melbourne. It was really a great experience and experiencing will be another big break for my career. And I just really want to tour around Melbourne again. 🙂
The hardest lesson I learned in life is to let go of things that are not meant for you. I was so used to getting what I want back when I was a kid that’s why when I grow up, I always thought that whenever I want something, I can get it. Whenever I don’t get it, I tend to get really sulky and depress about it.
But after a life changing event in my life, I finally got it. It was a really tough experience that made me realize that even though you put your heart into that thing because you really want it, even though you cry bucket of tears for begging God to give it to you and even though you put your 100% effort into getting what you want, if its not for you, believe it. Not because you don’t deserve it but because you deserve something much more better than what you really thought you want. God knows what or who’s the best for us. Trust Him because He knows us better than we know ourselves.
Some people, including those who know me, find it weird that I get excited or amaze about little things from eating at a new restaurant to the gifts that I receive occasionally. I sometimes get excited whenever we go to theme parks or animal parks. I even got excited when we went to Hello Kitty Island in Seoul. 😛 I guess the child in me never really left and she comes out whenever there are things that appeals to her.
I always remember that one time when I attended the mass and the priest told us that we should be like kids. He told us that kids are easy to please and gets happy with small things. They find ways to make use of what toy they got and have fun with it. They are always smiling, laughing and just plain contented to be beside their toys, food and their family.
After hearing the mass, I had appreciated more what or who were around me. Even though sometimes I would want more, I just go back to thinking that at least these were given to me. Let’s find the kiddo in us. 🙂 Be excited and thankful for life.
Probably the most sensible thing that I’ve heard was from my previous boss (and he’s by far the best boss I’ve known). Its about not missing out on opportunities even if a ton of circumstances are standing on its way.
I know I’ve talked about my Australia opportunity a lot of times but it was one of the best experience I’ve ever achieved in my life. #travel and #workgoals 🙂
It was hard for me then to push through with that opportunity because I’ve just broken up with my long term ex boyfriend. I was a mess. Everything in my life then has come to a halt because we had a lot of dreams and goals. But enough about that, so I decided not to push through with it and give the chance to others. However my boss talked me into the opportunity and he said that it was my big break in terms of my career. He said that I shouldn’t missed out on that big opportunity because it may not come again and he’s right. After our short stint in Melbourne, the client ended the contract with my previous employer due to contract breach. But even though it was just for a short time (almost 3 months) it taught me a lot. It didn’t not only improve my career but my self as well. I’ve learned how to be independent and to start a new leaf. Thanks to my great boss because I’ve experienced that big break in my career.
