I won't give up. [❁]Friday, January 06, 2012
Life is all about how we see it.
It's a matter of looking at a glass of water being half-empty or half-full.
If that's the way you see things, that's the way things will be.
It really pays to talk to someone with a good perspective in life. I've only talked for a few minutes but I believe I had been given a lifetime's worth of lessons.
I am troubled about the things happening recently. It's as if I was losing hope for the current situation. But talking to this person made me realize many things which I should have had earlier in the past.
One of these lessons I have already posted here --
"Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth." - Colossians 3:2
My heart was on the road of pursuing something that is unappropriate, but thank Goodness I was averted from it. While I was hearing the advice, all the past experiences ran through me and made me realize what is really I'm looking for and what I should be giving worth to.
There is something in here that can't be obtained from many of those others out there -- skills. It's all about the accomplishment that you get. Suddenly, I realized that I have focused most of my values to the wrong direction. From the start, I should have done the right thing. I should have accepted the opportunity that my thesis professor gave to our group before I graduated. Well I can't really do anything about it now. But for my current situation, I think I am still in control of my fate.
Thank Goodness again because there are people around me who think differently. Contemplating over the events, there are actually similarities between this friend of mine now, and that only friend that accepted our prof's offer. I envy them for having the courage to set their own choices, to set their own path. I guess I need to reread my Road Less Traveled Book again.
With those lessons instilled in my mind, it feels like having a fresh start again. With a new set of values established, I will do my best to reach the goals that I have set for myself. I will focus on polishing my skills. When the right time comes, those things that I want (and need) will follow through.
Thank you so much to those persons who have inspired me, and still continues to. I will work hard from now on. :)
And to eternally remind me of this lesson, a precious friend gave me a link to this video, which inspired me even more. God knows who you are. Thank you. :')
