Interview Question: What keeps you going?

TGIF. Tale as old as time, when something is amiss, I turn to blogging to channel out all these pent up dramatics (real and drama πŸ˜…). By the way, we are currently in California, not for vacation, but will be here for a little while. Having said that, it means restarting our lives here... no yaya (house help), no driver, just us, sooo grateful for the boys (hubby and Chaseyboy). πŸ‘ŠπŸΌImagine that?!  It's not easy. πŸ™‰Props to everyone. I'm not capricious or feeling privilege, it's just how it is back home, we're used to getting help either from the family or paid help. When you're a working mom, it's a crisis (and everybody feels for you) when you are help-less. Hah. So contrary to when we were just visiting, you don't get a lot of me-time. Unless, you're like me, I get it at the expense of missing out on sleep and risk piling up of laundry. Bad. Hmmm, some would say, you don't shop here as much, but oh well, I do love to shop, old habit never dies. 🀷🏻‍♀️That's a consolation. Haha


Anyhow, so technically, even our careers, we're restarting. Reset. With my age, I've been meaning to invest on retirement and build lasting relationship with a company and colleagues, which I consider as friends. I've been running around, trying to climb the corporate ladder that I've been moving from one company to another, looking for THE One. I though I found it last time, until we made this one big leap of faith to move to California. So now, I'm back to square 1, and going on interviews is a way of life. Oh well. It's easy to talk about what I have been doing over the past years. It's this Ms. Universe question that makes me wish I had my responsible share of breakfast and lunch, just because I'm always on diet πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️, and so I can ace it. Hahaha But I do my best, sincerely, thoughtfully I answer...

So what keeps me going?  It's foremost for my family, here and back home. Then it's just really being grateful for being gifted with a good education (love you, Mama and Papa), and that everyone has God-given talents and skills, that I should be honing, and sharing to the community. There's no rest for the weary. Lastly, it's that self-serving, trivial reason of having means and ways to fund my fangirling and shopping soirees. πŸ’πŸ»‍♀️I sincerely believe that life is beautiful and God has a plan for me, in His time. I need to persevere to the daily grind regardless of how sometimes I get disappointed big time, lose my focus, and worry endlessly. It is what it is. Thank goodness for Asian and KDramas! πŸ˜‰Aja! Aja! Fighting! JiāyΓ³u!✌🏻
