Black Saturday

Quiet time. Reflecting time. This is probably why I got too emotional watching the most recent episode of my favorite show, Grey's Anatomy.

This quote did it for me:

“We cover up injuries with tape and gauze to protect the injury to prevent infection to save the patient from further suffering. The hard part comes when you have to rip the bandage off because that can hurt like hell...
It hurts to tear that bandage off. We don’t want to see what’s underneath. But maybe it’s not the fear of the pain that holds us back. Maybe we’re really afraid to see if the wound underneath is still open or if it might actually be healing.”

Uni Life (so far...)

Well, what can I say? I'm pretty happy at where I am at the moment. I'm like in a situation where I have control on everything that's happening to me at this season of my life - the "back to Uni" season. I'm not gonna lie, it has been so overwhelming that during the 3-week early start, every time I come home I just wanna cry, but I stop myself from doing so, because I have to. I often times tell myself, "Suck it up, princess!" And so, I do. I suck it all up. This kind of strategy to battle stress has been quite knew to me, hence, I'm better at not crying. LOL. I still cry, like a lot, but not as much as before. Also, after the early start, it all eased up a bit, so I'm not complaining :) Plus, I have a very supportive partner who's always there for me. He has been supporting me in any way he can which I'm very thankful for.
This is us after finding out I passed the first test in Mental Health
A certain realization hit me while I'm in the middle of all the pressure I'm feeling during the early start, which has been a significant one, because it helped me cope and think of positive things. It was the thought that if I can't cope with all this stress now, how can I cope with family life? Isn't that harder? (I ask myself) I know it's harder, but if I see women with families, husband and kids, they seem to manage very well, yet they have their own struggles, too, but in a different level. So, I said to myself, "If you want a family and become a very good mother one day, you will have to balance yourself, keep your feet on the ground, never give up, and have faith." Then, having this particular conversation with myself sent me to the brighter side of things. I started to feel more inspired and motivated. And yes, it's also because from the beginning of all this hard work in life, I knew what I've always wanted.

I appreciate this season of my life because even in the early stages, it has taught me a lot already. The balance that I feel, the decisions I have to make, prioritization, being more focused on what I do, and not entertaining the negative thoughts are all lessons that I'm happily experiencing at the moment. In the midst of all this, there are also other things I think about which are very important to keep the balance, such as: my relationship to my partner, family, friends, and co-workers (because yes, I still am working), and in saying that, I still need to have that 'good feeling' when I go to work, which I have and I'm very thankful for. This only shows, I still am doing good. :)

I know this is only the start, but a good start because it teaches me how to be stable. And for me, being stable is good. Not too high, not too low. Just enough. I really hope and pray that all this lessons are not going to perish and will continue to grow in me, helping me to become more efficient and goal oriented, not just for the people that I care for and love, but most especially for myself.

For all the happenings so far, God has once again reigned on it all. Making me realize that He knows what's best for me, and the questions I have before are now slowly being answered by Him. What more can I ask for at this stage? Nothing. Knowing that He is still there and will always be there is enough. God is enough.

To See You

To see you hurt, hurts me the most.
To see you in pain, pains me the most.
To see you drown, drowns me the most.
To see you cut, cuts me the most.

And to see you dying, kills me the most.
