Daily Inspiration: Life Begins...

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Good morning! Days are so fast and before we know it, September is over!

So let me share with you our Daily Inspiration.


Our laboratory was audited yesterday by PDEA. This is for the issuance of permit to purchase controlled chemicals like sulfuric acid, hydrochloric  acid and potassium permangate. We need those chemicals for our analysis of raw materials and feed samples. Right now, we already ran out of hydrochloric acid and many analysis have been affected. It took us almost 4 months to send the requirements because our bosses need to acquire NBI clearance, Cedula, etc. You know bosses have no so much time for these. I hope we can have the license to purchase sooner after all the requirements are submitted and of course after payment of fee. 

Anyway, I have been working with this company for 10 years now. This is the first company who accepted me after I graduated from college. This company also took me out of my comfort zone.

For the first 20 years of my life, I don't know how to ride a jeep or bus alone. I grew up with my mother always around me. My mother did everything for me. Yes, I was over protected and I was always a shy girl then. I was always afraid to leave our place because I was afraid that I can't do it alone, on my own. But then, I should face reality that after graduation, I should find a job and grow.

Everything changed when I stepped out of my comfort zone. The girl who used to be so shy to meddle and communicate with people finally came out of her shell. I learned everything including riding the jeep and the bus alone. It was not easy because there were times I was crying while talking with my mother on the phone. I told her I was having a hard time washing my clothes and all my precious fingers were wounded. My father then told me to just brought my clothes home but it was not possible because I can go home on paydays only. The travel time is 4-5 hours so it would just kill me if I will go home weekly plus the fare. Months passed and I get used to it, though I still get wounds when I wash my clothes (and it happens until now).

Challenges from both work and living alone made me the woman I am today. I never imagine myself living far away from my comfort zone, my family. But I did it and God is always there during those times I was feeling weak. My life truly begins at the end of my comfort zone.

Such a long story right? Hope it can inspire you to not be afraid to get out of your shell, out of your comfort zone because only then you can live your life and see what is install for you.

Happy Thursday!
