First Day High

Today marks the first day of the next phase of my life.

After almost 7 years of employment in a manufacturing giant, I have decided to take my feet off the platform and step onto uncertain ground. Overall, I’m happy with my decision to focus on my priorities in life, but it doesn’t mean that everything is going to be fine and dandy from hereon.

In fact, weeks prior to today, I was sometimes crippled by fear and doubt. I was fearful of what the future has to bring, especially since the job that I was going to give up allowed me to enjoy financial abundance. At times, I go into panic mode, trying to look for my next employment or my next career move.

However, as my last day of work approached, I found myself becoming more and more excited and not anxious. Eager and not fearful. Self-gratifying and not self-doubting. I felt happier and more contented with my decision as each day progressed.

Here I am now, sitting in front of the computer, not thinking about work demands and deadlines. Here I am now, feeling so light and high after being unloaded of the burdens that I was carrying. And here I am now, waiting in humility for God’s plan for the next phase of my life.

Here I am now, high and humbled.

    To find our way back to ourselves could sometimes mean getting off the high train. We may feel isolated and unsure only for a bit but not for long. Walk on. The way to greatness is not on the crowded streets but on the road less traveled.

    Well… it is a bold move and I think bolder to admit that one is afraid…
    I am sure though that with your talent and skills + tremendous faith in God you’ll find a much better career… 😀
    God bless tito jay!
