“Whatever happened to FAITH and your God?”, BR asked over a late dinner after a long journey down just to catch up with me yesterday before she flies to Shanghai for another gig.
-“down the drain”, as I munched on the Indonesian crackers to satisfy my very hungry tummy.
She gave me a -_- face, and I didn’t even want to go into the details of WHY enthusiastically. I was weary from working all weekend and on my day off and the last thing I wanted was to go into talk details of my emotions.
So between 4 hours of sleep after trying to deal with spreadsheets,formuals & numbers and waking up at 6.40am this morning for 4 back-to-back con calls, I subconsciously managed to psyche myself into the condition of “expecting good things to come for I’m the Lord’s child”. I read it in one of the daily devotionals recently. Though I must admit…I have been slacking off in diligently reading and more importantly, actually understanding & absorbing most of it. Can I blame it on work and busy social life?
But hey, turns out a positive mindset does work out. Or least it did for me today.
Amidst catching up and joking around with my fellow local markets in KR & CN, bugging my colleague from HQ on some financial stuff which I’m really grateful to the someone who decided to send her here for the GTE program, P buying me a delicious cury puff, squeezing out some 20-minutes me time with my yong tau foo lunch, checking in on mom whose overseas for work, still feeling good despite a serious lack of sleep and receiving a string of surprise smses from a very good friend whom I’ve not heard from since April, seeing 2 ex-colleagues who decided to drop by the vincinity, catching up with my lovely nu nu whose in London – my heart felt extremely contented as I left the office at 9.35pm.
It was as if life had been going on good for such a long while that I didn’t even feel that it was only for today.
WOW. A lot to absorb, but for someone who loves jam-packing her schedules with lots of activities – today was absolutely lovely.
