On a Personal Note: Freedom
Freedom. This is it. I felt it as soon as I closed the door of the managing director's office. I've just surrendered my Blackberry and laptop to the company I have worked for in 5 years. It is liberating. Peaceful.
I did mention here in March for those of you who were dropping in, that I have resigned. I was however, employed by the same company as a part time project manager and designer for the execution of their 1000 sq.m corporate office renovation. The last few months took me on a roller coaster ride of possible success and failures. I learned a lot from this experience, not only the technical aspect of what office planning might entail, but mostly about myself. How I react to unexpected situations beyond my control, how to manage people and their demands, how to handle criticism, and how I bounced back from a rejection that stopped me from painting.
As I climbed my car, leaving the gates of the office which was once my second home, a smile triumphantly graced my lips. I am entering a new life. I can feel it in my core. A surrender of my dreams and desires to the unknown. A life that most people would deem idealistic and impractical. I am merely simplifying. Finding true happiness. I am forever grateful for this journey of discovering who I really am and the opportunity to find what I am born to do.
Have a blissful Tuesday!
P.S. I was captivated by the fun childlike wonder and freedom of this little girl playing by the fountain in Christchurch Botanical Garden in New Zealand. I had to take a picture of it.
