Travel Light (Literally and Figuratively)

by - Monday, July 13, 2015

With so many things happening to my life lately, I can't help but get my breath of fresh air and mull over the changes happening in my life lately. True enough, change is the only thing permanent in this world. I happened to see it both in the positive and negative way. But then, with everyone's help around me, thank God I was able to stick on the positive note at the end of the day.

So I just graduated. And after two months of counting, I got a good job that many people are coveting. But then, the first few weeks seem like hell to me because of the bumps along the way while I break-in myself to this new environment. I thought I was already at my best when I realize I'm still what they see as the typical employee trying her best since it's her first job.

I already felt like quitting on this early stage of life until I finally break myself from all the negativities of this world.

Travel light.

The best mantra I've heard from today's homily. What seemed to be my burden all this time is because of all the worldly things I aim to get in the future.

Some things that keeps me bugging are (first) I always wake up with all the worries of overspending because I might end up in a rut not being able to save even before I get my next allowance. Second, I tend to fantasize on all these things that I cannot eventually bring once I leave this mad world. And the list goes on and on..

Today, I was able to put a big smile on my face leaving the church elated because my burdens disappeared like a bubble popped in the air. I came to realize how these material things around us are just add-ons for us to become prepared for the real life up there. Seems easy to understand but then it takes real immersion on these lines to make things lighter in my end. Realization is really the key here my friends. Stop and think everything over. I am so guilty of working all the way without proofreading my work from the past. Not thinking if I did something wrong in the middle of the way.

But yeah, I hope to feel better emotionally after this. After all, life's not so bad. :P
