When it rains…


… it pours. So the saying goes.

Generally, this English idiom connotes a negative meaning. But for my case, this quote has taken an opposite connotation… which is a good thing! No, make that gold! Since I returned home after my placement as a VSO Volunteer in Kenya, I had difficulty in finding a job that fits my qualifications and experiences. But

Thanks to the help of my siblings, I am well on the right track with my career on the other side of the Philippines. I’ve had offers and now am training for a new job. Entirely a whole new world to me but, hey, MamaGirl has to do what she’s got to do, right? It’s an opportunity that presented itself to me and I am treating it like it’s a precious gold bullion for it comes only once in a blue moon.

So yeah, I’m training… and coping well. Despite my initial reaction to type of job I chose not to be picky but be thankful for the blessings that come pouring in. I know things will be better in the coming days. Now, I’m off to make some soup. Nothing fancy, just some veggies and chicken and with the help of chicken broth in bullion (or cube, as advertised on TV), we’ll have this nice, steaming bowl of soup to warm us on this stormy day.

  • Good luck with the training and new job! Sometimes we inadvertently limit ourselves in our thinking and need to be pushed to try something just a little outside our comfort zone to realize our other talents.

  • Thank you for your kind words, Leslie. You are right, I was unconsciously putting myself in one box only to realise that I can do more things that are outside the box. I’m just glad that my siblings are supportive of me, I get poked from every direction and so a whole new world awaits me…
