...one day at a time!
Not quite sure if days/ weeks are actually getting longer or if it's just another seasonal thing that wrecked havoc in my system! Regardless, I am still hoping this will be yet another delightful week for me...
Almost two years ago, I wrote Going Nowhere Fast referring to me professional career. Now that's almost 2 years! Where did time go?! What have happened...
Nothing much really...except that I have changed...and I have stopped caring.
What will you do when people whom you have been helping all this time bite back you? What will you do when at the end of each project they simply refuse to acknowledge your help and still went on claiming you have not done anything? What will you do when people around you points their fingers at you accusing you of something you have no idea what about?
I'm not going to do anything...will not explain...will not confront...will not care.
I am tired.
I cannot do anything to how things are going around me but I can certainly do something on how I react and manage things...
Do I get hurt? Not anymore.
Why not? Simple. I have stopped caring.
No, I'm not saying I'm calloused. I'm just saying out loud, if people refuse the gift of my friendship because they just want to use me help them get whatever they need done, then it's not my problem. After all I have developed compassion for pathetic people.
But God will not forsake His people. He counts every good intention we have...and He will not let injustice reign forever, and I take comfort with that.
So this week, Isaiah 41:13 reminds me to stay steadfast, for the Lord is in my side. He is holding me gently...and will carry me through as He had carried me through.
Not that I'm necessarily facing adversity in the literal sense of the word, it's just that, things have been extremely rough for me over the past few months...well...make that...years now! And I'm now finally starting to feel that bit of hope that would allow me to shift gear without rocking myself...
So this week and the days to come is most important to me. I can almost see the road in front of me...and it's something!
I am praying hard for a good news to come...please do hold me in your prayers...for what I am hoping is very monumental to me.
(I hope to be able to talk about it here soon without any apprehension that some lurkers will spoil it...maybe somebody can guest me to write. *wink*)
And once again, amidst all the challenges...
I'm trying to take better care of myself.
I'm trying to eat better.
I'm trying to be more active.
I'm trying to pay closer attention to my skin.
I'm trying to simplify my surroundings.
I'm trying to improve my mental health by being more congruent.
I'm trying to think of how my actions now will affect me later when I make decisions.
I am not looking too far for now...I am focusing on the now...after all, I only need one day at a time...
