It has been over two months since I last published a post, and I have to say that it is because of two things:
- I’ve been so busy with our wedding prep that the downtime I had I spent with my little bunny
- My uncle suddenly passed away last August
- I transferred to a new company and I’m still trying to learn as much as I can – although really it is because of reason #1
So for the past two months a lot has changed with me and my little family. Work wise I have more time with my family because it is nearer and it is not as stressful as before. I am now working with Tupperware Brands Philippines and I am loving it so far. It is still a bit odd because I am the client now vs. before wherein I am the supplier or agency. Work load is not as intense as with agency since I am very focused on one brand.
Going to work is fun because I get to do what I like to do but at the same time , clock in and out on the dot. No work from home part or messages in the wee hours of the evening or morning. I do have to admit though that at times I miss the stressful life of being part of an agency but going home to my little one earlier sans the intense Makati traffic is just perfect.
Our office is so near our home, I can leave at 8 AM and arrive there before 9 AM – with just one van to ride as well. I don’t have to rush to the line as well when I clock in at 5:30 PM or 6 PM because there is an unlimited supply of van at the Mall of Asia terminal – which is just a 15 minute walk away from the office. Perfect opportunity for me so far – and the thing is I didn’t even look for this position. Ah, divine intervention. 🙂
To be honest I was looking for a new job first quarter of 2016, I went to take exams and interviews but I just didn’t feel right. I was about to give up when this opportunity came, right when I asked God if that is a sign that I should just stay with my last agency. I guess he wanted me to wait a bit longer for the best opportunity that will come my way. It was great because I stayed patient and I landed the job! God really has a knack at planning things out for us, it might be the right time for you but sometimes he wants us to wait a bit longer for the best opportunity to come along.
Oh yes, E and I finally said I dos! It was such a blur, everything seemed to happen in a daydream because I didn’t even realize that the day has ended and we were officially wed! As my uncle said it was bittersweet for our family because just two weeks before my wedding my uncle, the panganay of the siblings from my mom’s side, passed away. It was sad that he did but also we knew somehow that it was the best because he can finally rest. Up until today I sometimes wake and feel that he is still with us and that it was just a nightmare and we are all waiting to wake from it, but it never came. Sad as his passing on was we couldn’t postpone our wedding because everything was already set.
The day came and everything was perfect, well not really but I decided to be the nice bride and just let things be because I don’t want to become a bridezilla. Bunny walked down the aisle, sort of. She wore her gown and her other dress, she was dancing, and our closest friends were there to celebrate with us! It was a nice and intimate wedding with less than 70 present and more than half was our relatives.
I’ll post about it on my next blog, but everything was perfect. How about you? How have you been the last two months? I promise to keep this blog updated again – sopaltomom is back and will be blogging more, soon!
