Different People, Different Stories [❁]Saturday, May 10, 2014
I am again at awe on how different people can be. I have experienced to be with different kinds of crowd, and I am thankful to have learned from them the lesson of passion, and the continuous willingness to be the best version of one's self by getting out of one's comfort zones.
I think I have already talked about something like this in the past and up to now it still gets me on how different people's choices can be based on their actions and in their views in life. We all have 24 hours to spare each day and true enough, success depends on how well we utilize those time.
I have very well proved by experience that challenging one's self by trying out something new outside the comfort zone makes us better people because we learn a lot of lessons from it. Overcoming an obstacle gives us this wonderful feeling of triumph and the thirst to achieve more.
There's a lot of people around me that makes me so inspired to get out of my shell and face the world (I'm on my way there!). There are also some people that I know who are at the opposite side of the road, who still needs some kind of encouragement to go on in life.
Recently, I have this colleague who was my teammate in my previous work. I have a lot of respect for this person (yup, he's included in this list!) He joined my current company, which means we're officemates again, and I never have gotten more happier ever since. I have learned a lot from him in the past, and I am still learning a lot of lessons from him now. He's very passionate in his field (aside from work, he has a lot of programming projects on the side!) and a very disciplined person. I'm so inspired by the accomplishments that he has already achieved given that he's still young and is just starting on his career. He's currently my source of inspiration at work. I want to have the same attitude as his for our chosen field.
There are also a lot of interesting personalities that I have met at work. I got the chance to work with this lady who quenches her unique thirst of adventure by travelling out of the country alone. She has gone to Japan on her own (oh how I wish I could do the same!). To think that I also know of a gal who has not gone out of the Philippines without her family with her. People are so different and this makes them kind of interesting, from this fellow fangirl (that I mentioned here) who have reunited with her parents after almost 8 years during their recent US trip, to a teammate who have gone through lots of hardships to be with her current husband.
Each of them has their own different story, and in each of them I kind of pull out the strength and the inspiration to weave my own. I don't have a lot of story-worthy anecdotes, but I must say that it was a great path from the start of my life to the present. I love how different people makes me see the world in a different way. I am still young, and there's a whole lot of bunch of things to learn, and I am happy that I got to draw the inspiration from the set of people that I'm with everyday. I hope to continue learning from them, and maybe, share a few lessons for them from my own.
This post has been in draft for weeks and weeks and I seem to not have the motivation to finish it at all... until now. It's been weeks also that I haven been feeling constantly unhappy and depressed about life in general. I have experienced this kind of stage countless of times in the past, but I think this one is the worst.
I have been constantly searching for the meaning in life. Though I am okay now, I haven't found the answer yet. What I know is that I am again curious with life and ready to move on again on this journey.
