37 Days

It’s been 37 days of being “unemployed”. As I stay at home, I realize there are a lot of things that need to be done at home just like being in the office. Well, except the pressure and strict deadlines. However, I can always take a pause and have some rest. Something, I can seldom do when I work. Oh well, I don’t think I should compare working in the office and being unemployed – staying at home. Just doesn’t make sense! Haha!

I’m truly grateful to be able to rest for the past month and do the things I’ve missed doing during my busy season in the corporate world. There are still a lot of things that I want to do, however, I’ve also been thinking of hopefully going back to a “hopefully” 8-hour day job. God has been opening doors and letting me wait on some things. It’s totally liberating to just let God take control of everything and just do what He wants me to do. I don’t have to give myself a headache to think over things when He knows already what’s ahead.

Today, I just want to sleep in after I wash a pile of dishes from cooking good meals. These things I haven’t done in awhile.

I thank God for the REST He has given me. I really hope everyone can enjoy such blessing especially those who are so burned out with work.

 

 

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.

Risk

 

I’m not a risk-taker person. I always want to make sure that I’m making the right choice.

But not these past days. I got carried away with excitement and false hope.

I fell into a scam in which my brother became a victim, because also of my poor judgment.

I’m never good with taking risks. But more than that, I believe I failed to listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit as well.

I just followed what I felt was good at that time without really thinking and praying deeply.

Well, lesson learned.

I’m just glad still because I know God is in control and there will always be consequences to their actions.

God will vindicate for us.

*sigh*

Resume

 

I don’t know what has gotten into me but I spent one night re-doing my resume and re-submitted it to job sites. I’m not yet really looking for a new job in the next weeks or next month. I just want to see if my skills could be marketable.

Well, just after 2 days, I got emails from different agencies and one phone call. And it’s funny, because I feel like I’m a fresh graduate applicant. It’s been so long since I had a phone interview. It’s just good to know that somehow, I can possibly get another job, somewhere. We’ll see… 🙂
