I may have written in a previous post that recently, I've been feeling so much stress because the employment situation here.
For someone who does not like gray areas, I find it so ironic that I am in one big gray area at the moment. Haha! I swear, the Big Guy up there must be laughing thinking, "Ha! You dun want gray area, is it?! I'll put you in one." Hehe!
But seriously, I've been so stressed recently because the new work pass I have right now is only valid for a year. Come end of year, I would have to bug our HR to start applying for the renewal of my work pass. One year can go by so fast and I dun want to go back to the Philippines just yet. No, not yet. I still love Singapore very much that I am willing to do what I can to be able to stay here for as long as I can.
However, I also realised that maybe, there is a lesson being taught here. Perhaps the most obvious one is to put complete trust in Him. This is probably Him saying, "Relax lah. No worries lah. I will take care of everything, no matter what." I really have to say I'm grateful to have strong faith in Him. Otherwise, I wouldn't know how I would handle certain challenges that I've experienced here.
The other recent thing that I realised is that instead of worrying, I should spend time preparing and making plans. It's true that I dunno what will be the result of the renewal, but I can still plan. (I am optimistic though that I will be renewed again and again and again. This is me claiming it. Hehe!) In this case, I need to have a Plan A, B, C, D, E and so on.
So lately, all these ideas of what I will do are coming to my head. To be honest, I'm quite excited by the ideas.
The important thing right now is to continue saving. I should save as much as I could because as long as I have moolah, I will be able to move forward with my different plans. Hehe!
My friend Bernice sent the above photo via Facebook. She said, "Friend, I thought of you when I saw this." I really thought it was nice of her to remember. The photo is just so appropriate. Hehe!
I can say that now that I've done some "processing," I am less stressed. In fact, I am now excited. Sure, I dunno what's going to happen next year. But as long as I've got plans and I've got my faith and my Big Boss, things will be okay.
Pero Lord, please patagalin ninyo pa ako dito sa SG. :)
