Unemployed

I must say, today is officially my first day of being unemployed after the long holiday.

My last day at my work of more than 8 years was last Dec. 31.

Today is the first day of waking up not thinking of work and the things I need to do at work.

I had to make a schedule on how my day should go as I don’t want to spend each day lazily being so unproductive.

I’m excited on this journey as to how, where, what and when – will God take me to something new.

I’m happy also that I will have more time in my writing now. So much things I can do and so much time I can spend with the Lord!

My work is a gift from God. And this time to rest, is a gift from God also.

Time

Would you agree that in this lifetime, time is truly a luxury?

A luxury…

When we don’t have time…

for family
for rest
for doing hobbies
for meeting people

most importantly, for God.

I use to struggle in managing my time especially during weekends. My calendar is always booked that I got worn out and sick as often because of the lack of rest. This year, I’ve learned to somehow manage my time and make sure I really have time for God and for rest.

God was very serious when He said to keep the Sabbath holy. He knows our limitations and that we truly need rest to be recharged for the good works that He has prepared for us to do in the next days.

I thank God that He gives me 2 days off to be renewed.

Don’t you love weekends? 🙂

Happy Rest Day! 🙂

Traffic

I’m grateful that I decided to do work from home today. The traffic tonight was very heavy that people got stuck for more than 2 hours in a very short distance.

Our country has two seasons only, dry and wet. And this is the time of the year that rainy season is starting. And here in Metro Manila, if it rains, people just forget how to to drive. Traffic is just unbearable. Flood on some parts of the main roads, drivers who don’t want to give way, and infrastructure work which are ongoing are the reasons why every year, when it rains so hard, traffic becomes a huge problem. Well, even if it’s not raining.

I don’t know when this problem will be resolved in Metro Manila. Every year, same problem is occurring. I’m not blaming anyone because I believe all of us are responsible for something.

I just hope that one day, rain or shine, traffic will always be moderate.

Just wishful thinking. U_U

Recharge

The past 2 weeks have been very challenging weeks, but in a good way challenging. 🙂

I’m so blessed to take in a new role for a different account in the company. I’ve been wishing to have a BA role in our company, but there’s not really much that of an opportunity within our industry group. But then, God has really been good and amazing the He opened such door for me. Indeed, God can make things happen. 🙂

And I may be tired for that past weeks, but I just feel so happy. I must say, happily tired. 🙂

And this weekend, I just want to recharge and be refreshed for another week to face.

I thank God that He taught us how to rest when He did it on the seventh day after He created all things.

Happy weekend everyone! 😀

God bless!
