Entries for May, 2016

"I have always argued that change becomes stressful and overwhelming only when you've lost any sense of the constancy of your life. You need firm ground to stand on. From there, you can deal with that change." ~ Richard Nelson Bolles


It has been a very eventful and stressful past month. We are on the 2nd quarter and still  encountering some budget challenges. I could say that 2016 is a difficult year to be part of the Blue team. Just in time when I got a level up on my responsibilities and started reporting to the big bosses. I could hardly keep my head above water. I am barely new, just over a year and it's like encountering a deluge. Up until kind souls gave me strength. There will always be someone who will be sent over to save you.  I had these people around. And I am very thankful and grateful to have my support group. I wouldn't have survived without their unwavering support.

A mentor said  whenever I encounter difficult times to always remind myself this: "When the tough gets going, tell yourself this: This too, shall pass." Indeed, sometimes when you feel like there's no firm ground to stand on, there will always be a helping hand that will reach out to you and keep you stable. God send angels even those without wings. =)

On a brighter note, so happy that my sister passed the 2015 Bar exams. So proud to have a lawyer in the family. It was a difficult journey for her and I am just happy that she was able to get through one of the most difficult paths. And I assured her there will be lots of those in the future, she just have to be strong, confident and prayerful.

Another good news, I am leaving for Sydney on the 16th. It's a business trip for a week and extended for 5 days to spend time with family and friends there. So somehow things are looking up. I just have to change my perspective and count my blessings. God is good all the time.
