Boy! It's been a while since I've come here. Been thinking about a new post for a while but haven't got down to it. Anyway, the weekend is here. It's time to unwind. Going to lunch with the family to this fancy Chinese restaurant.
Things have been good over the past month or so. I did a training program at work, did well on my assignments, got a good review from my clients, and generally things have been looking up. Work has been challenging at times in the past month. But then what's life without a challenge? The most important change in the last couple of months has been that I'm feeling more comfortable with myself. I feel like I've been making the "right" choices more often than not. And it makes me happy. I've been living life the way I'd like it to be. On my terms.
What has changed? I've started giving my everything to my work. Not in a workaholic kind of way, but in a good, healthy way. I go to office early, give my 100%, and come home satisfied. I make my mistakes, but I look at it as a way of learning.
I'm still wary of the corporate world. Not scared, but cynical about the true happiness derived from the job or more correctly, the value addition to my life as a result of the job. How is it helping me to move towards what I want from life? Where's the meaning in all of it? I'm still trying to find answers.
