Saturday is here. I woke up really late today, intentionally, around 11:30 am and still very tired. I always feel more tired on weekends, strangely. But I shortly jumped off my bed as soon as what I always do every morning, when I checked my phone, I received three emails, three missed calls, three messages, and another three come from Facebook. And I was like, “Well, why?”
I try to remember when was the time when I fell asleep last night. I did pretty much things yesterday, you know, Christmas is coming, I feel the need to help kids (not my kids, lol) decorating home for this season and preparing stuffs. I know it shouldn’t be an excuse, but it makes me tired too.
What makes me jumped really fast after I checked my phone was just a thrill from those three-three-three notifications. All the three emails came from clients, that makes me suddenly remembered I still have workloads to do. The three missed calls was from an unknown number, which makes me so annoyed because I don’t like Unknown, especially those who called me at 3 am! Three messages came from operator, operator, and a friend, who’s asking me why is my other number inactive. Anndd… the other three that come from Facebook was a like from a friend on my post, a message, and a comment. All was concerning my job.
So that friend asking me what did I do after I graduated last August, what was that post and why don’t I work like others, why did I stay at home. Well, this is sad. Unfortunately I don’t know how to explain this. It’s been months now, and I’m still not wanting to get bonded. I like how my life is going now, slow and free. What’s better than that? But I know some people worried about me, because I look like I’m unemployed. Sadly, yes. I don’t even know what is my occupation. If they ask about money, I just make my money whenever I feel I want it to, I’m not safe, I know. I have no insurance, who guarantee my days when I get older, and so on. But I’m doing fine. In fact, some people who I know are just working to get a sense of security are not truly enjoying their life. And for me, that’s so sad. Don’t include me.
I know I’m sane, at this point. I’ve been wrestling with this idea. How the world’s going, and how I’m going. Who ruled my life. But this is my choice.
30mins company before sleep from good book for good rest :)
THE STORY OF US
Been working on this children book illustration for a wonderful parent from Australia. I enjoyed drawing their character so much. I can’t even believe that it’s done now. I hope their daughter will like it :)
“When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown” Isaiah 43:2 (TLB).
Have you ever experienced something that truly tested your faith, your joy and your convictions? We’re not talking about just having a bad day or having to deal with difficult people – but enduring an intense situation that rocks you to your very core. When many people face such soul-searching they let their happiness and joy turn into bitterness and anger. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you. Don’t give the evil one the victory by becoming an ineffective Christian due to lingering bitterness. Even if you’re being tested, God has promised to remain faithful. He is all-powerful, and He can pull you out of your troubles at any moment
Hi, thanks. I don’t know what you mean by techniques, I was just sketching with Photoshop :)
So my penpal asking me if I can do gift swapping this Christmas. I think it’s fun but I don’t know what to give her. I need something uncommon, cute and small enough to fit the mailbox and the shipping cost :p
Can anyone suggest some gift ideas for swapping on Christmas?
This is embarrassing.
I have my current email when I was around 15 and never actually change it since then. I use it for everything and yes, I receive bunch of trashy emails from various sites from social media to everything else everyday. I always have a thought of having separate email for more important things, but I never made it. I guess mostly because I’m just too lazy to make a clear line between which one is important and which isn’t.
And now since I start working, this is what happens to me. I spread my email everywhere to promote myself. I make conversations with clients using this email. At first everything looks normal and fine. BUT LOOK WHAT I FOUND! A hearty signature below every message. Oh my!! This is extremely embarrassing. It feels like I have offered my self and “my love” to everyone this whole time. My meaningless teenage whim has successfully troll me!
Sometimes in life, you’ve got to play in pain. In other words, you’ve got to keep going even when you don’t feel like it. You have to keep pressing forward even when it’s not easy. Every voice will tell you, “You’re done. There’s nothing good in your future.” No, don’t believe those lies. God sees your effort. It’s one thing to do the right thing and make good decisions when everything is going your way. That’s great. God honors that. But when times are tough and nothing is going your way, when you’re hurting, when you should be on the sidelines nursing your wound but instead you’re still in the game; you’re still getting to work on time; you’re still being good to someone, you’re still expecting God to turn it around, that gets God’s attention in a new way.
I believe God has a greater reward for people who are faithful in the tough times. If that’s you today, know that God has His hand on you. He’s walking with you through the valley. He’s preparing streams in the dessert. He’s leading and guiding you in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Keep praising. Keep believing. Keep moving forward knowing that God is with you, and His comfort will guide you to the place of blessing.
