Hope you are doing well.
Today is my only off day.. I know pains to say..but okay..
So I felt like talking to you guys.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride since I resumed career.
There were tears of joy sorrow frustration exhaustion and a lot of other random feelings.
I haven’t mentioned about my blog book etc to my colleagues yet. My bosses know and they haven’t mentioned it yet as we always have insane amount of work.
And I prefer it this way. I have always serrated these two worlds and it has helps me.
Well I landed a writing related job when I don’t have a formal degree in writing. I am planning to do a post about tips related to that but it’s going to take a few weeks.
Some days back I started promoting books by fellow bloggers.
These are not well crafted blog posts as honestly I am juggling between a lot.
But don’t think this is stressing me. It’s a very satisfying practice.
Recently I was talking to a colleague who is a very selfless person and has devoted her everything to her family.
Sounds great write?
But here’s a tiny problem. You never know what life is going to throw at you, and when it does, literally nobody comes to rescue you.
So it’s better you keep something for yourself too.
It made me think about a balance.
Our energies and everything should be distributed between own self, our family & friends etc and something for humanity.
There’s no fixed ratio to it as we can have different resources and priorities.
What do you guys say? I could be wrong. It’s not a rule it’s a personal opinion.
This new phase of life made me realize how strong times have made me.
There were instances, if they happened like 5 6 years ago I have broken down, but know I just closed my eyes and let them pass by.
I read somewhere, “life is unfair, get used to it”
But sometimes the test becomes too excruciating.
Some days I really wonder why all of this had to happen to me.
But I will never find an answer, because there is no answer.
First 10 days or my job I have been coughing like a horse. I was too sick and had to switch between 3 different types of commute.
It was hard but my friend said in the end of the day it’s all worth it.
I don’t know how true is that.
Life moves too fast, if you don’t do anything it leaves you behind.
If you fall, it leaves you behind.
Nobody comes to pick you up.
I hear “we are proud of you” and that now hurts me.
I don’t know why.
I have been telling everyone that I needed a job badly.
Now when I got it, an uncle of mine came forward with a job offer with a trial period. like..no thank you please. Where were you all along?
And I’m very well aware of the trials.
We learned something very hard way. Never ever do business or work for your relatives!! NEVER EVER!
Maybe I could trust my sibling or parents but no-one else!
The world is just a very mean place.
And when people say I have trust issue.
Heck I do have trust issues because people have been breaking my trust all my life!
I would be stupid to trust anyone now.
That’s all for now.
Have a nice day.
