an eye opener!

Hi guys, I know I owe you some updates and explanation for my absence and for not even visiting your blog for such a long time. A lot of things happened last month and I choose to keep quiet because it might put my position in danger again.

Anyway, the good news is, my contract got renewed and I was retained in my position as well as to the unit/department where I belong. Four among my unit mates were reassigned to other different units/departments here in the office. We also transferred to other floor just within the building.

Everything happened to our office served as an eye opener not only for me but for all of us.

Today, I just want to share to you some of my insights and observations from what happened. I will not elaborate them further because as I told you it might be taken against me.

Never ever feel confident that you will get hired because you are talented enough to do your job. That is not enough. You might pass all the tests and interviews but you still have the chance to get fired for some other reason/s.

Never ever feel that you will get hired because you are working on that office for such number of years. Your loyalty and dedication to work might not save you from getting fired.

Never ever forget to continue to dream. As long as you are still young and capable of looking for a more stable and high paying job, go for it. Do not wait until you get age and that you are over age for any position that you will be applying for. This one really strikes me and made me realized that I need to pursue my studies and go get the license that I need before my daughter starts schooling. I only have two more years to fulfill that and I am praying that my financial conditions permits me to fulfill that dream that I am eyeing for or forget it and regrets about it for the rest of my life.

But above all these, I strongly believe that everything has a purpose and that God really has a good reason for everything. I am indeed happy and grateful enough that I still have my job and that we were transferred to new environment.

Indeed, change is the only permanent thing in this world. So be aware and be ready. God is always there to guide us and bring us to where we should belong.
