I intended to publish this three weeks ago:
I have always wanted to write what I have been up to since my graduation last September, but I did not know where to start.
Me and Alex have been blessed with a steady self-initiated work that pays for our living. We do not work fixed hours but we work everyday, including every weekend and every holiday, and have been doing so for years. Despite that, I often see myself an unemployed rather than self-employed.
I have always assumed that graduation was a marker of the end of a chapter and the start of another one. Now I realise that I have actually started a new chapter well before I graduated. It is now a continuation of what I have planned and started earlier.
I hope what I’ve written make some sense and this is a short introduction to my updates.
Today, I am very grateful for having the opportunity to also publish what I have written and saved as draft a month ago. I wanted to wait for the right time:
It has been a difficult
and uncertain journey for Alex and me in the past few months; to go against the current, to stay out of our comfort zone and to live the challenge. I am glad that our determination, persistence and endurance have slowly showed some rewards. We are a step nearer to realise our dreams.
I am thankful for two main quotes that we lived by and kept us going through the rough journey:
- Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we might win, by fearing to attempt.’ – William Shakespeare, and
- God only gives three answers to prayer: 1. ‘Yes!’ 2. ‘Not yet.’ 3. ‘I have something better in mind.’
I have to admit that there were many meltdown moments where I completely gave up on myself, but I am grateful that Alex and I have chosen to stay strong together, to brave through the tough situation.
