Lately, I must admit that I am really burnt out from my job. The goals that I’ve set seems to be so far from my reach. I felt that my drive to get that promotion is getting difficult each day. Even passing my metrics for the month is like going through the hole in the needle. I am about to give up, and already thinking to just drop the job. Just when I was thinking about it, I tripped over an article that my officemate sent to my email. This has somehow made my day better.
I hope this article might also help you guys.
This Is For Anyone Who Ever Feels Behind In Life. The End Says It All.
April 28, 2014 Other Stuff
Life can be a marvelous blessing and every day can feel like a miracle. But then… there are times when it’s tough. If you’ve ever had trouble keeping your chin up or feeling accomplished in life, you need to see this simple cartoon. Most people go through slumps, that’s normal. But they find a way to pick themselves up and move forward.
Don’t feel beaten down or trodden on. Instead, you should read this. It’ll help.
Most people rush through life, filled with ambition.
But do you feel left behind?
Trampled on by others?
Just don’t give up hope.
Never give up.
You may compare yourself to other people and feel useless and inadequate, but as long as you persevere and never give up, you can accomplish things far and beyond the limits and restraints you’ve put upon yourselves.
People will tell you to nut up, ignore those people, those people have problems of their own to take care of and empathy is a foreign concept to them. You will never be rid of negative, unkind, unsympathetic, and insensitive voices around you; if you alter your behavior to those whims of those voices, you will never grow as a person. Focus on yourself. You can do it. Do it.
Don’t let other people’s arrogance, accomplishments and goals make you feel bad about your own. You are a special person.
My quick escape from reality is a book.
Find time to do the things that you love, so you will not regret in the future that it was left undone.
I have backtracked the things that I usually do before I got hitched and reared children. I must admit that I was too busy with being a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a career woman. I mean it is difficult to balance and to adjust to the new roles. So, there are things and certain hobbies that I left unnoticed until before my birthday. A realization has bumped into my mind that eventhough I have new roles to portray, those roles should not hinder me from making things happen.
I really love reading books. The tangible ones that are quite old and dusted. Sorry for sounding like an old timer. But really, for me, that tangible thing is a symbol of a door that opens a new world. Every page that I turn takes me from one place to another. It makes me imagine that I am the protagonist of the story, or maybe the antagonist. As the turned pages grow thicker, the excitement is also heightened. It’s like joining in a sprint race and would like to reach the finish line. It feels so good to finish the race, oh, I mean the book. It is a fulfillment nonetheless. That’s what I feel whenever I read a book.
Good thing that I have kept some of the books that I bought four years ago. Now, it is a bit easier for me to fit reading into my roller coaster schedule. I read during my idle time at work. While waiting for my first born at school, I see to it that I have my book as my company. Another free time for me is while my kids and husband is asleep. Or before I go on a deep slumber, the book serves as my lullaby.
It is great that I often have rendezvous with my dusted books. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks, I can also renew my relationship with needles and threads. Another hobby — crocheting and knitting.
There are big decisions that needs to stay on top of your priorities, but there are also small things that should not be neglected.
No matter how many times you fall, never forget to rise and stand tall.
A secret is like a garbage in a bin. No matter how well you cover it, the strong disagreeable odor cannot be concealed.
Being young should not be equated to age; being young is an attitude.
