SO YOU ARE THE POPULAR ONE?
People who tend to come into my workplace and find out they are getting helped by me tend to get super excited. Why you might ask, well, because I am pretty popular at work. I am in demand, everyone is calling for me, want to ask me questions and just get the best vibes and service from me. So when they leave with a big smile and say they will be happy be back, well, that’s a great win. 🙂

And I came to the conclusion, am I really using my value and worth to its full potential? It’s like thinking of a talented athlete who is not playing in the best division of the game. Like if you are truly talented, how do you show it and perform in front of the people who cares about it?
So I have thought about it…I have been working on it, and I think I have made the step to do just that even if I fail. I thought of failure and haven’t met it in a while, but definitely not scared of the notion, but do I want it? No. I would like to grow and be better.
I am just writing these are memoirs and notes to document the change I am about to take. Writing out my thoughts have helped me in the past, and I hope it will continue in the future. No more hiding behind my thoughts and keeping my actions and where I want to go in my head, but write my thoughts, all of it and welcome what the world has for me.
I will focusing my future career more precisely, not worrying about a 9-5 job, especially one that no longer brings me joy. I will continue to work all my life, because I like to work, but this chapter I am in, is easily coming to a close.
