My Heart and Soul
I have been told I talk about concrete like other girls talk about makeup. I remember that day so vividly when I took on that job. Sitting in the entrance waiting to be picked up for the interview I was sitting there thinking what the hell am I doing here. Look it is only for a few months. After the interview, I was going to give my then boss the refusal for the position. Funnily however when I had him on the phone I could not muster up the courage to do so.
I stayed for the longest period I have ever stayed anywhere. What I had no interested in grew to become a passion of mine, people became friends and I look back at that time wanting to savour every moment forever. I fun projects, got to work with people from every part of the world and learnt the most amazing things about topics I believed would bore me.
In life it is not really about finding your passion it is about keeping an open mind, growing and learning new things. So, probably more fitting would be the wording growing your passion? I never imagined this to turn into a passion of mine, just goes to show you can really learn to be interested in things that can evolve into more.
Grow your passion!
Remembering the good times
The massive global image video I was working on finally got finished and I was not there to see my baby through. I had the prestigious task of designing the image video for one of the global brands of the world’s biggest company in the industry. I remember how much effort, sweat, blood (yes, there was literally my blood flowing for this) and tears that went into this project. I have never been a big person to brag about my achievements, my friends will all agree but that did hurt. Seeing the finished product stirred up a lot of emotions, seeing old colleagues, customers, people I had become friends with over the years and most of all remembering all the fun we had. Where do you go from there when all is over?
At the beginning of last year, I was battling inner demons in regards to leaving. It is always hard to move on if it is by choice or not.
At first, I wanted to get ahead and move on but I still find myself falling back and remembering this place and all entailed. I know it is merely a memory and all is different but I find comfort in the knowledge that following the usual cycle of a decade I will be in a place that I enjoy equally as much as I did that one and that my dear comes from experience. Life is an ever-evolving stream of chances some better than other and the least appealing are mostly the blessing in disguise.
