Changes

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. 
Don't resist them  -that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like"
~Lao Tzu


Late last year, I was thinking of doing something that will bring a major change in my life. I hate changes. But if there's one thing I learned in life,  that is to embrace the changes. It wasn't easy and it didn't just occur to me overnight. I put much thought to it. Finally, after months of contemplating I came to a final decision. After 12 years, 4 months and 3 days, I AM GOING HOME.  I can't say for good, but for the time being.

Early this month, I filed my resignation letter. It wasn't easy too, thinking about the friends I'll left behind, the place I learned to love, the lifestyle I embraced and everything this place has to offer, not to mention my 5 years of stay in this company. But with all their heart, they granted my request, with warm wishes for my success in my new endeavors in life, knowing that I am answering the call of my vocation. The profession, I think I was really called for. 

This was also the reason why I wasn't able to join some events. I was busy with my requirements, travelling for 5 hours going back and forth but couldn't divulge the reason to everyone unless I was taken in. 

And so after all the exhaustion, I'll be back to teaching in a science high school where I graduated. When I filed my resignation, we're all teary eyed. But we're over it now. My friends and I were so excited about what the coming months and years has in store for me. I already have seminars and training lined up for the coming school year.

Leaving the city maybe bittersweet, but it's a decision made for the best. And I wouldn't want to say "goodbye" but rather "see you soon".

  3. I believe God will put blessings on your future endeavor. "God's will is our deepest desire", ika nga nila. I am happy that you are following what your heart desires :) Walang halong ka-echosan. Hehe...

    At sabi nga ni Francis Kong "The world may change but there will always be two things that are constant. One is change and the other one of course is Christ. The Bible tells us, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and forever.”

    God is faithful :) See you when I see you!

    1. Thanks! I put extra thoughts about this decision and right at this point in time, masasabi ko na I have made the right decision. This is my commitment to God. That I will be His missionary by touching the lives of my students.

      Maraming salamat sa prayers and sana continue praying for me, that I may serve as God's instrument in reaching out to the youth.

      See you when I see you :)

  11. I hate changes as well. And I learned as well that change is of paramount importance, for our betterment. Nobody wants to be stuck in a limbo so might as well embrace them.

    Good luck, teacher.:)
