Beautiful Sunday # 429 - stronger

The tasks are getting stronger. 

I've read a number of self-help books emphasizing the need to move out of our comfort zone. We need to be challenged or venture on things we never knew. It's the only way to grow and become a better person. Easy to say, hard to do. 

Five years ago, I was disheartened. Nothing optimistic is happening to my career. I was convinced that I'll remain in the same position until retirement. I explored freelance works and hoped for a second career, another field where I could excel. But some drastic events happened last year, I received a bigger responsibility. 

I always imagine if I had my old life back. Everything will be easier. Part of me is wishing for that comfort zone, back when everything felt so unchallenging and easy. I guess these are just one of those days when everything feels tough and frightening. 


I'm lost for words these days. If there's anything I wanted, it's to finish pending tasks and have that rare weekend with no worries. Other selfish items in my bucket list include to win the lottery :p or have that money that could pay off debts, another comprehensive insurance policy and establish a safe time deposit account for retirement. If it's not too much to ask, a real estate and a car that would last for years. Okay, I'm on extreme daydreaming mode. :p 

But really, the past months made me realize that career advancement is non-essential these days. Retrenchment chooses no one. Having sufficient savings and alternative sources of income are way better. This again leads me, I should have worked my way to explore entrepreneurship, strengthened my blog (Google Adsense declared my blog ineligible for earnings) and pursued online writing works I started years ago.  


On the lighter side, this Netflix documentary is creating a buzz within my immediate environment. I haven't finished the entire film. A popular IT expert said, watch it with an open mind. 


Wishing everyone a great day ahead! This is way too late for my usual Sunday post.
