I do believe in destiny, and fate is the reason why people meet in this Earth. At some point in time, I am still thinking about why I was given this kind of opportunity. When the world seems to crash over and you think there’s no way you could get yourself back up. I was living on my own, thinking that being independent is a way to pull myself together. I never regretted that decision, and I could say it is one of the best decisions that I make in my whole entire life.
I remember at that time when I made a promise to myself: to listen to my heart and do what I really want; to pursue it and go against the odds. It happened one sunny afternoon as I got a message from the company that I got a job. I said to myself “Will this be worth it?” ,“Is this how I should start my career?” ,“ Will I stay long in this company?” ,“Will I love my job?” and “Is this what I really wanted?”. All of the answers turns into negative and so I pursue another career in which I had a grand time of my life as a Barista.
However, that promise seems to fade away as I stare into the sea. The day when I wouldn’t make a cup of machiatto anymore. The day when it finally sink into me, that I will become a hotelier. It wasn’t so bad since it would be a great addition for my application abroad. I long to travel, but seeing how things turn out at that time, I doubt myself that I could even get a passport soon.
Life indeed is full of surprises, and after a year of hard work, I was given a wonderful opportunity to work overseas -legally. A great struggle in which people like me worked so hard while living in a third world country. Seeing how the pieces of the puzzle came together, another story comes to unfold. There’s another adventure to look forward too, and along with it, storms raging and high waves to ride.
I’ve never been so scared yet ecstatic in my life. I’m still young, new to the real world and finding out my place where I can fit in. I’m so vulnerable yet I am keen to know and learn things more. Time flies so fast, it seems yesterday when I was a troubled teenager thinking how life sucks.
More than that, I will surely miss the place where I grew up and loved. And so here’s another promise: that I will still continue to live the dream, yet remembering where I came from and the ones that I treasure. That’s how happy memories are documented. As I begin a new chapter of my life I will do my best to record every step along the way, and the people around. If ever I feel lonely, at least I have something to keep me motivated eh?
So, keep yourselves posted! And I hope you enjoy and looking forward for my future posts.
