of understanding where I stand
After reading zee‘s smile-inducing entry, I took a moment to sit back and think about where I am, and how the past two weeks have been for me.
I just moved (finally!) from doing five years of traditional corporate communications work to online communications. You’d think “same, same, but different (just a bit)” right? Theoretically, I don’t doubt it, but when I’m trying to mentally switch gears and approach the ‘same’ topic, it was tiring. Through trial and error over the two weeks, I had to figure out what worked for me, what kept me from doing things more efficiently, and what I really needed to read up on.
Today, I will continue that very learning journey, with the added acknowledgement that every day, I wake up grateful.
I wake up grateful for where I am, for the country of my heart who is inevitably bearing the brunt of our collective adolescent change, for who I am, for my parents, who have given me everything to lead to today. Sometimes, I tell myself I shouldn’t want more than what I already can get. This isn’t to say I tamper down expectations or anything.
I am grateful.
