It has been almost 4 months since I landed on this foreign lah-lah-land. It has been 4 months of being miles and miles away from my family and friends. It has been 4 months of trying to learn the ropes of the new industry I am in. It has been 4 months.
I was never fearful of my decision to try my luck here in Singapore. It was actually the best decision I've ever made. Why?
One thing is that my mom's going home already, back in the Philippines, after 15 years of not seeing her, the whole family will now have her back.
Good for them.
Sad for me.
I could always see it that way. I could always think that it's sad that just when my mom goes home, I fly away and work abroad. I could always ask why am I doing this? Why am I working for my mom? Why?
But then I always end up smiling and telling myself that, "Hey! Look at the brighter side! You earn money not just for yourself but for your mom."
And yes, it actually is fulfilling to know that your hardwork is slowly paying off.
So, how has it been?
I met new friends.
I built good working relationships.
I work for a good company.
I have the person there is with me.
I am happy.
I am happy.
And nobody can take it away from me. Not one.
So if ever you decide to go abroad, take it as an opportunity to discover what is out there and see the best things that could happen.
