Up and Down Life Struggles


My last post was about my travel adventures during the summer of 2015 and indeed it was a blast! Hope I could travel again by summer of 2016 :) crossing my fingers. I am looking for more travels to come.

When June 2015 came there are a lot that has happened to me. I officially enrolled my one last required subject for my Masters in Education Major in Educational Management which is Statistics in Education before proceeding to my proper Thesis 101 and 102 this second semester of the year or maybe next year. But when middle of June 2015 arrived, I was laid off from my 2nd Online work and has left me hanging on my finances. I thought I should drop the subject because my other job online is enough only to sustain my families basic needs plus other bills or insurances that I should pay every month. But when I take a good look at my finances I can still continue studying the subject I enrolled. One subject cost about PHP3000+ in one semester, so I decided to continue. All I need to do is to have a very tight budget and no more unnecessary expenses.

But a test of my faith and decision making strike me in the first week of July 2015. My boss who laid me off has referred me a job online again that I can possibly work with. Shocking as it may seem but the hiring process was very fast. My former boss contact me via skype because the person he referred me with wants to interview me immediately. The interview process was  very light and it took us only 2-3 hours to finish the interview and tadah I was hired! Yeah! really fast, I did not expect it but God does really move in mysterious ways even though I didn't ask for it. That day when I am officially hired, I started immediately with the task handed to me but they have rules to be followed. I should start work ing 8 am in the morning till 5:00 pm in the afternoon, a Time Doctor should be installed to monitor the time  being spent while working, no social media sites should be open while working, and lots more rules. I am kinda overwhelmed about this, and I said to myself  "Oh they are very strict!" but then I continue. The next working days was very torturing because I am used to sleep very late at night and wake up late in the morning. My body had a hard time coping up, getting up early to start working at 8:00 am is really hard. I've been stressed a lot trying to do a 40 hour work in a week, I am used to work flex, meaning I own my time, I choose what time of the day I will work and I usually preferred to work during early evening till midnight. I ask my close friends on what will I do and listen to each of their advises, most of them said I should continue and only one of them said that I should not. In times like this that I am really confused on what to do, I always go to Church to pray, I ask God for discernment on what to do.

This week I finally decided, I quit the job! I realized that I should choose the job that makes me happy. Money should not always be the solution for everything. I must choose my hearts decision over my head. And after I said that big decision I felt relieve and happy about it. Why do I stay on a job who does not make me happy, right? So from now on I will choose those that will make me truly happy.
