You Are Amazing β™₯️

August 29, 2019 marks my 1st month of being officially employed again in the virtual world πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰πŸ™‚

The best thing is, with this new employer, I got to do what I love to do and where I am really good at, and be myself again, by sharing what I learned from previous work experiences to improve existing processes and procedures, at the same time spreading some good vibes and motivations to my virtual co-workers.

Truly, I have proven now and again that “Rejection is merely a redirection: a course correction to your destiny”.

So I say, dont get frustrated if you have been layed off from work w/o prior notice, or if a client suddenly disappeared without paying a single penny for a work you have rendered, or if you still have not landed a job after your final interview on your 50th application, coz it only means you’re not meant to work with those people and that you deserve BETTER!

Just keep the faith and always pray for His guidance, and He surely will keep you on track. It might not be the track that you expected but it is definitely the track that you most deserve. And this applies to all aspects in our life.

Looking back, I realized that the reason why it took me exactly 2months, (which is my longest idle time in my 17yrs of working) before I got another job was because I didn’t really exerted enough effort on finding one. At that time, I was on the verge of getting into serious depression (reasons shared on previous post “I got lost somehow”) and I felt that getting a new job right away might just push me beyond my limits. So I opted to lie low and took my job hunting a little slowly, choosing which job to apply one at a time, and spent more on my thoughts and my being (my kind of beauty rest 😁) . I rested and did some self evaluation on what I really wanted to do (not to brag, but I think I am lucky to have an option which path to pursue based on my previous experiences). I targetted job openings for day shifts (Australian clients), but not much opportunities w/n my expertise and expected rate. Until I stumbled to a job post in one of the Facebook groups for Filipino Virtual Workers, and it is within my specialization and one that I really wanted to do, and the rate is also within my range, so I applied. That time, I was getting into the mood of really taking my job hunting seriously because bills and obligations been getting piled up 😁 & I know my husband is already worried.

Lo and behold, I was interviewed and was hired shortly, with less effort and no level of difficulty! I even find the hiring and interview process much easier and lighter compared to most of what I have been through with other applications which I didnt get hired at the end of the day. πŸ™„πŸ˜

Sometimes, all you need to do is take a break, breath your negative vibe out, relax, and take one step at a time with prayers and confidence. And you’ll be amazed, one day, you already have what your heart truly desires, with less effort, and little to no difficulty at all! It can be a dream job, a dream salary, a dream boss… Or all of it at the same time.

All because God never miss the fact that you are amazing! And He ALWAYS answer to prayers of all amazing persons (like you and me), not in OUR time though, but in HIS time. When He knows you are entirely ready for it. So pack up your worries, anxities, depressions, and all unwanted emotions, piece by piece, and start unloading them, and leave each of ’em behind, as you make a step forward, towards your better self. Coz HE is at the other side of that entire barrier, waiting for you to take what you’ ve been asking for. πŸ˜‰πŸ™β˜οΈ

Because you deserve it!

I think this is a lot of writings already, for now! 😊 Thank you for reading this far!

Do not forget that you are amazing!
All of us are! ❀️

Don’t Let Go! πŸ€œπŸ€›πŸ»

I was browsing my yahoo mail this morning and came across a folder I created long time ago for forwarded messages. I’ve got a collection of nice messages and inspiring stories in there, but found this one really inspiring at the moment.

This was forwarded to me some time in June of 2007.

Check it out! πŸ˜‰



The Scars of Life
Some years ago, on a hot summer day in south Florida, a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house. In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went.

He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore.
His father working in the yard saw the two as they got closer and closer together. In utter fear, he ran toward the water, yelling to his son as loudly as he could.
Hearing his voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his father. It was too late. Just as he reached his father, the alligator reached him.

>From the dock, the father grabbed his little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs. That began an incredible tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the father, but the father was much too passionate to let go. A farmer happened to drive by, heard his screams, raced from his truck, took aim and shot the alligator.
Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack of the animal. And, on his arms, were deep scratches where his father’s fingernails dug into his flesh in his effort to hang on to the son he loved

The newspaper reporter who interviewed the boy after the trauma, asked if he would show him his scars. The boy lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the reporter! , “But look at my arms. I have great scars on my arms, too. I have them because! my Dad wouldn’t let go.”
You and I can identify with that little boy. We have scars, too. No, not from an alligator, but the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars are unsightly and have caused us deep regret. But, some wounds, my friend, are because God has refused to let go. In the midst of your struggle, He’s been there holding on to you.

The Scripture teaches that God loves you. You are a child of God. He wants to protect you and provide for you in every way But sometimes we foolishly wade into dangerous situations, not knowing what lies ahead. The swimming hole of life is filled with peril – and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack. That’s when the tug-of-war begins – and if you have the scars of His love on your arms, be very, very grateful. He did not and will not ever let you go.

Please pass this on to those you love. God has blessed you, so that you can be a blessing to others. You just never know where a person is in his/her life and what they are going through.

Never judge another person’s scars, because you don’t know how they got them. Also, it is soooo important that we are not selfish – to receive the blessings of these messages, without forwarding them to someone else.

Right now, someone needs to know that God loves them, and you love them, too- enough to not let them go.
