Sometimes, we just need to take one step back to get a better look of what is ahead. Breathe.
While my workaholic self has been intensely working for months, I must say that I ‘let go’ just a little bit this month. I found myself making time to socialize even just a bit during weekdays and honoring what rest should really be on weekends. I experimented on different routines to balance work and what I want to call, “Life.” Some of the experiments have failed to become efficient and effective. I guess this transition to independence will forever be a learning experience.
What I feel is progress for me is that I was able to make more time to do the things that I really enjoy like reading, writing, spending time with family, meeting new people and hanging out with friends. Sometimes, these are the things that fuel me to continue what I need to do despite the sacrifices that may come with it. I don’t want to die knowing I didn’t enjoy my life.
Every Sunday, I always come to the realization of how short time really is for us to be able to live life to the fullest. There is only so much we can do as human beings and I pray that I only get consumed by the good in life. I know that this is a choice I must make. Truly, happiness really is a choice.
