Life Doesn’t Throw Things You Like…

So much in perspective… cut down into 3 main scenarios…

When I was offered the job as a segment producer for a morning show, I got scared because I am not much of a people person.

When I was offered a job as a reporter in Isabela, I accepted it halfheartedly considering the place and having to think of not seeing my daughter for weeks made me a cry baby weeks.

Prior to this, Jay, my co-segment producer decided to resign so my being a reporter was put on hold. It was a relief, I was happy and then unhappy because it might be the last time this will be offered and the acceptance stage is still on process.

In a week, Jay is officially leaving so I am left with another responsibility and that is taking his other position, floor director. As usual, I didn’t like it one bit because I hate giving orders, a part of the job description.

Where am I getting at with this?

Basing on  “lynn’s guide to life”, life offers propositions and opportunities that is out of your comfort zone.

You either decide to live outside the box and work on how you accept the challenge or you decide to stay stuck.

There are people who can live with the “what ifs” so long as they get to stay in their comfort zone. For some, the jump is exciting considering the possibilities and the learning experience.

I would want to be the latter.

Moving up and away...

This has been a favorite convo starter for the past weeks and it goes with staying stuck. The latter part is easy. You get to be on your comfort zone but for some time, the challenge comes when you realize there is no growth left anymore. Challenge in a way that makes people not appreciate what they have but doesn’t realize it.  They are focused on something more that appreciation slips often times. People tend to reach for other motivation and decide to look for something more and that is a good thing right?

I know, I know… the logic is a bit messed up and this is just the reality of it. My life has been on this and it is a streak I cannot get over with. Overthinkers tend to confuse themselves with what is here and what will become in the future.

I live by this. In a way, it helps me focus. Whatever it is that life decides to throw my way, I try to live by it and more often than not, I truly let the future decide.

Although there are some missed spots like when I tell myself that “I didn’t ask for this” and it shows on what I say and think and most often I become that “ungrateful bitch” and I say this basing on the words of wisdom from people I often spend time with,when they patiently hear me whine and see my uhog flow like a river but the other side of what they say, like people seeing something in me which I often push at the back of my mind, me being the “breaker of things” have something of a potential with which puts more pressure and affects my how I see things in perspective.

I should have faith in me more.
