I've been to many places and flew to many flights this year but compared before, I felt something have changed in me... my longing to wander has been replaced with longing to be in just one place.
I guess I'm at the point of my life where I prefer to take things slowly and try to settle where God can let me bloom. Lately I've also been thinking about Where do I go from here? I mean, I just can't escape forever.
Nope, I cannot escape adulthood, now I know!
I am going to face it, embrace it!
Yes, I had too many YOLO moments and I treasure every single of it but you know, priorities change and people "mature".
To be honest, my quarter life was not just about "searching" my ikigai. Looking back, I realized that somehow I also used to escape from reality and responsibility of adulthood. I was not just ready to be an adult after being outpacing myself with too much of everything.
Some of my very close friends who knew about my personal and professional journey said that I've just had too many responsibilities at a young age so it came to a point that I missed being a young and carefree. They tried to cheer me up by letting me see a different perspective.
Well, it kinda helped me but you see, I also came to this realization that while I was trying to explore who I am and what I really wanted to do with my life, "I spread myself too thin!" Yes, I am bursting with enthusiasm but somehow it became too much, it was excessive to the point that I lacked focus and follow-through.YOLO! By acknowledging this personality flaw, I am beginning to bring focus to my life as I embrace adulthood and all the challenges that it may bring.
I've been praying for God to guide me in this journey. During the flight, I also offered a silent prayer to ask for Divine Direction and I believe He answered my prayer with these "signages" with thought provocking questions I saw upon arriving in my destination.
Thank you God for reminding me that you've already empowered me to start this journey... That I am blessed in many ways and all I just have to do is to find that courage to start somewhere without losing faith.
Yes, my Triumph starts with with you, my Lord, my God. My success starts by letting that seed you planted in heart to grow, by acknowledging that dream you've sowed in me and by not losing hope in your promise of grace and blessings most especially in times of trial.
Lord, today, on the first day of the 7th month of 2016,
I declare and claim victory all for your greater glory!
I am ready to receive your abundant blessings.
I will follow your your Divine Direction
and promise to be open to your Divine Connections
while being grateful for your Divine Providence.
Favors upon favors, intercede for me oh Lord.
Thy Will Be Done.
