Gaining something and giving back

Last week, during my birthday, I told God that if He will give me a direct path, a concrete map to where I should be going, career-wise, I will give-up one of my biggest vices. Today, He answered my prayer.

I am currently holding my end of the bargain–no Coke or any kind of soda, and I intend to keep this for as long as I am enjoying the fruits of my bargain with God. I guess it is true that for whatever big thing that we ask from him, we should be prepared to give up something of value.

Until now, I can’t believe that I got what I was hoping and wishing for. The road to this wasn’t easy–I went through hell and high water, just to keep my head afloat. Just to be alive from the everyday misery that I experience as the kaisha whipping girl. Now that I am given the opportunity to be someone who I wish that I will be, not necessarily 3 years from now (like what I originally hoped)…but NOW. Right now.

I know the road will not be easy, I have to prove my mettle. I am looking forward to the time that I will start my new life, it’s just three weeks from now. I am happy.
