Enough Already!

I started work again on Sunday after being off for 2 weeks. It's been hectic since.

This was the first vacation I take and actually stay in Bahrain as opposed to travel. It's amazing what I've discovered. There are SO many hours in the day to do SO many things! I used to get up, run errands, pamper myself, meet up with friends.. and then when it felt like it was getting late, I'd look at the time and realize that people were STILL at work! It shocked me.

It was such a wake up call! I don't want to waste my life at the office or with work. It's not worth it that work gets thebetter part of me and my life/time!

Don't get me wrong, I'm an ambitious person, always got good grades in school/college, career oriented, etc. You know what that translates into in my head now? "blah blah blah"

Who cares what GPA I graduated with? Ok, it got me the job. Now what? Ok, so I got the title? And then? While all those things were important to get me where I am today, it's time for me to make a turn in my life and re-focus on other more important things.

I think a lot of us get caught up in our careers and in proving ourselves, that we sometimes don't realize that once we've accomplished that, it's time to reap the rewards.. it's time to LIVE our lives.

Something i think about almost everyday.
"Why?!" echoes in my head non stop.
I just want to enjoy life! Why should i be the best at everything?!
It seems so silly when u thnk about it.

Amen to that! Of course, I'm in no position to be complacent now given my situation but now that you're all successful and set (mashallah) you can afford to take a chill pill and have some fun, innit?

Enjoy hun :*
