Two and a half years later

Tidbits II

Two and a half years – almost three, since I began working. Two jobs since then.

Positive changes.

Growth.

Grateful.

Exceeding. Exploring. Enriching.

Discovering things that bring out the best parts of me.

Trying things I have never done before. #99FirstsAndCounting

Early morning runs for some thinking and letting go and letting be.

Succulents at home and in the office give good cheer.

It’s all about the little things.

How moments of being alone are as important.

Other things take so much of us already. We should take the time and choose to be with the people who truly matter especially when it matters most.

Apart from God, it is rare to find people who truly love you unconditionally. There is family, and then who else?

Questions.

Of how we shouldn’t think about things too much and perhaps in that way, the answers will come on their own. And they did.

The answers may not always be pleasant or may not always be what we expect or want. Nonetheless, it is in knowing that we can begin to untangle ourselves from the things that once blinded us.

And thus, the answers continue to come, as God reveals them one by one, in His time.

Of how true it is that not everybody will be good to you even if you are good to them.

That not everyone, or perhaps most people, will not stand up for you when the time comes.

That people’s words can change, when they are in front of you, when they are behind you, when they speak to you alone, or when they speak with the boss there.

That not everyone will take the time for you – to help, to listen, or to simply be with.

That there will always be people who do not like you and may silently hold bitterness against you.

That your kindness may be taken for granted.

That the effort you exert, no matter much, will not always provide what you expected it to.

Yet remembering that God sees and He sees it all.

“The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Grateful, still.

Tears – not shown. Tears – to let go.

Tuloy pa rin ang awit ng buhay ko. #remember

You have Your reasons.

When a dear friend tells you that you will eventually be the right girl for the right guy in the right time.

And you are reminded that God does things according to His Will, in His Way and in His time, with His strength. In all these, He is perfect.

Just keep swimming.

Balance between busy days and chill ones. And the in-betweens consist of being stuck in traffic, losing hours of precious time trying to get to and from places.

Being creative and enjoying it always.

Learning and appreciating it always.

Living – and loving, always.

Thank You, Lord, for being my partner. You truly are my partner in all of this.

I cannot. But You can.

And that life is [and continues] to be a long lesson in humility.
