This post is inspired by “A Gracious Life” wherein she recounted her experiences, occurrences, accomplishments and moments since beginning of the year. I see it also as an opportunity to be thankful for the blessings for the last 6 months and to assess how close we are to our goals for 2012.
So, here’s my share of tales.. lol!
Successfully left the job I abhorred. It took me years to heap enough courage to leave the job that I detested for years. I am really grateful of my new job and employer. It is a far cry from my previous job in terms of work environment, work (and stress) load, lifestyle and time.
Jobs and titles do not define me nowadays but it is the quality of life that I live and the time I spent with my love ones.
I am just really glad to be out from a toxic work atmosphere.
Downsize, Declutter. Last April we shifted from a two bedroom apartment to a studio room. It took us a lot of time to downsize while decluttering is still work in progress. You will never realize the amount of things you accumulate throughout the year until you start packing you stuff.
Rekindle my hobby. It was more than one year that I ditched writing because I had no time and energy left after working for 12-14 hours. Now, I resume to accepting writing projects again.
Hubby got to see our son, ZJ, for the first time in late January. ZJ was 4 months old that time.
Safe and Healthy, that’s what matters most. I could not ask for more because all of us including our families back home have been safe and in good shape.
ZJ’s escapades. He was barely six months old when he had his first airplane trip to Cebu then few weeks later he was off to Bacolod to meet his grandparents and a side trip to Iloilo on their way back home.
Lastly I am always grateful for the gift of time as a result of leaving my previous job because now I have the time and energy to pursue the things I enjoy doing.
