Thanks for the adventure. Now go have a new one. - Love Ellie (Up Pixar)
For the past weeks, things have been going in a blur.
A new and exciting adventure started for me. Everyday, I’m learning something new and challenging. The new work environment is a breathe of fresh air. I really admire everyone I work with, not only because they’re so good at what they do, but it’s that they genuinely care, which is somewhat rare to see these days. Their positive outlook in life and mannerism makes them just so contagious and so enjoyable to be around with. I hope some of that can rub off on me.
To those ones that weren’t a joy to be around with and haven’t been so kind, I forgive you. I’m not going to be pulled down with your self loath and inconsideration, my hopes for you is that everything will turn out to be better and maybe you’ll stumble to find kindness along the way. Needless to say, I’m keeping myself afloat, not sweating the small stuff and paying attention only to the things that are critical for my happiness. Negativity can go ahead and sink down to the bottom till it’s like a speck in the sand, so insignificant that it even doesn’t crosses through my mind.
They say that two things define you: your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything. I hope I’ve stayed true no matter in poor or abundance. I know there were moments where I’ve let myself listen to the wrong voice in my head. I’ve panicked, taken things for granted and missed the big picture. Regardless, I’ve embraced that side of me with honesty, and accepted the fact that there will always going to be an opportunity cost when you live intentionally to pursue things that mean the most to you, whether it be people, relationships or career. It’s true, we can’t have it all, and we shouldn’t be needing to. You are your own definition of success.
Kafkaf the cat, lovely and affectionate as always.
