For A Change

I’ve been staring at my computer’s monitor for a quite awhile now, but still couldn’t figure out the line of thoughts I wanted to write. It seems something, and yet nothing is bothering me.

Conflicting feelings yes, but that is how I can explain the sentiment that I can’t explain. So many times I told myself to gather my thoughts. Nonetheless, no matter how I tried, it still leads to this…undirected writings.

Primarily, I now affirm that I am unsatisfied and discontented with where I am right now. Maybe its just it!

I just feel that at my age, there are so many things that I need to cope up with. A few years ago, I have so many goals wherein I gave myself a timeline to achieve the same. Years had passed and yet, but only a little percentage of which landed on my hands.

I am not giving up though, that I would be able to have those goals. But it has to be now and not in the years to come. It appears that it will be too late if it would take some more years before it came to reality. And worse, if I would just let myself to go by the flow of the current situation, I may not be surprised if all the things that I planned would not happen at all.

I should not let it happen.

This is not to say that I need to go back square one and restart my self dictated program. Maybe, I just need to re-organize my priorities.

First on my list…my career path. I have to change and redirect it. Some have commented that I am lucky enough to land into the company where I am employed right now.

Certainly, with the thousands of communication arts graduates, I would like to believe that I am fortunate enough to work in one of the broadcast giants of the country. However, there is big difference between “having been employed” and “earning enough.”

Don’t get me wrong but I am not rushing things. It’s just that I am battling with my own time. As I have said, this is just to re-align my priorities. There maybe better opportunities outside if I will challenge myself to do things which I haven’t tried before.

I believe it has to be that way.

To become successful while staying in our beloved country is something next to impossible. I believe so.

Haaay making sense is indeed one of the hardest things to do. I hope I made one…

(Hahaha! Natawa naman ako sa last paragraph. U)

Kung may mga chance naman pong makakakita kayo ng ibang trabahong may magandang opportunity both sa career at financially, sa tingin ko ayos lang kung lumipat kayo.

...God bless you.

tonio said...

naku parekoy, sa hirap ng trabaho ngayon medyo pagisipan mo ng maigi yan. sa ganyan ako nadale, inisip ko bata pa ko since matagal-tagal na rin ako sa dati kong TARbaho naisipan kong magresign at humanap ng iba. kaso inabot ako ng hayup na global crisis na yan kaya eto tambay ako ngayon, pablog-blog, painum-inum, payosi-yosi... para akong paralitikong walang silbi...

gillboard said...

dala yan ng tag-ulan.. pareho tayo ng estado ng utak sa oras na ito... hay

abe mulong caracas said...

RJ...salamat parekoy, sana nga lang dumating yung chance na yun hehehe! natawa ka ba sa last line? hehehe hirap kasi ako talaga eh!

TONIO...parekoy sarap naman ng kinahantungan mo hehehe. para ka palang pensyunado ngayon ano? baka kailangan mo ng assistant pwede ako lols!

GILLBOARD...tingin mo ba dala lang panahon ito? senyales lang ba ito ng global warming?

The Gasoline Dude said...

Kaya pala nag-iisip ka ding mag-abroad. Pag-isipan mong mabuti kasi hindi din madaling humanap ngayon ng trabaho sa labas ng bansa. Makahanap ka man, hindi din biro ang mawalay sa pamilya at mga kaibigan. Sobrang lungkot.

MarcoPaolo said...

teka, bakit wala yong comment ko dito... hmmm di ko ang napost... ahay!


Good luck na lang sa paghahanap ng bagong opportunity... :)

Kosa said...

tulad nga ng palagi kong sinasabi parekoy, swerteng swerte ka pa rin! ikaw na ang nagsabi ng rason...

pero teka, anung ibig sabihin nito, maga-abroad ka na rin?

GASOLINE DUDE...oo bro kaya nagtanong ako sa iyo minsan hehehe. pero given na kasi kung mawawalay sa pamilya kapag gusto mong lumayo!

MARCO...yun lang dre, kung makikita yung opportunity

KOSA...sana parekoy!

LORDCM...for a change lang naman dre...babalik din tayo sa salitang kanto at jologs!

SEAQUEST said...

Medyo nahirapan akong intindihin yung lengguwahe, pero sa bandang hulimay nahagip din utakkong kamote..,kung may opportunity at maganda namn why not? pero sa panahon ngayon mas mainam ng kung regular ka na sa trabaho eh manatili ka na lang hindi ganun kadali makipagsapalaran sa panahon ngayon...mas mabuti na lang ipagpasalamat kung anong meron...

"To become successful while staying in our beloved country is something next to impossible. I believe so."

I don't think so. Nasa mentality yan. KUng saan sa tingin mo ka talagang magkakarooon ng progress sa buhay.;)

Truth is, this is the same thing and feeling that I was battling myself with. PArang ang dami ko nang nasayang na panahon bakit nandito pa ko ngayon sa kinalalagyan ko.

I'm thinking that I'm not getting any younger and I have to be this and doing that having this and that.. sa totoo lang kung sa sarili lang natin gagawin ang lahat ng gusto natin I don't think it will work. Panu kung hindi dito o yan ang kapalaran mo, panu kung may mas maganda pa palang nakalaan para sayo na nai-prepare si Lord eh nakatunganga pa rin tayo o nagbubulagbulagan..

MAy panahon ang lahat ng bagay. Wag tayong magmadali.. Dala lang ng "feeling" yan.. :D

HARI NG SABLAY said...

soul searching? wlang masamang sumubok. every decision may katapat na resulta. gudluck... :)

A-Z-E-L said...

there is big difference between “having been employed” and “earning enough.”

madami namang successful na nandyan sa Pinas. Nga lang, dahil pinanganak silang may gintong kutsara sa bibig! may puhunan... may negosyo... may koneksyon.

pero sa mga tulad nating sa simpleng buhay lang lumaki, mahirap marating ang narating nila. Mayroong nakakayanan, pero mangilan-ngilan.

tyaga lang kuya... at faith.
magiging maayos din ang lahat...

Mokong™ said...

Basta ganitong panahon...kakasahod lang at ubos na ang pera, kakatapos lang din ng weekend, lunod pa sa alak..maulan at nakakantok ang panahon..kaya ganyan tol..umawain mo na alng ang sarili mo...hehe

Yodz said...

Tomorrow, your clock will wake you up at the same time as yesterday.
You may want to make that day and everyday a masterpiece.

and be patient.

tomorrow will come... tomorrow.
You have to learn what you must prepare for tommorow.

You will get what you want, but you must first become what you need to become in order to get it.

Stop with the excuses. START TODAY...

Hocus Pocus...
it's all in your focus.

Ciao!

I am Xprosaic said...

Depende... more often than not ganun nga.... however, sa akin mas ok trabaho ko sa pinas pero mukhang ipagpapalit ko ata at makipagsapalaran sa labas para lang lumaya sa expectations ng family....

poging (ilo)CANO said...

nosebleed!

marami opportunity pero mahirap hanapin...

goodluck perekoy...

abe mulong caracas said...

SEAQUEST...oo nga eh, sabi ko nga hindi naman ako nagmamadali, kung may opportunity, grab lang! pero i'll take my time.

DYLAN...as per our last chat nga sabi natin may ilang bagay na pareho tayo ng pananaw. pero meron din palang pagkakaiba. yun nga lang kailan ba natin malalaman na were lacking out of time?

AZEL...yun na nga ang problema eh hindi arroyo, ayala ang mga apelido natin na parang kahit walang gawin mabubuhay ng marangya.
HARI NG SABLAY...tama soul searching. dapat lang talaga handa tayo kung ano man ang magiging resulta ng mga desisyon natin!

abe mulong caracas said...

MOKONG...edi nasa panahon at pagkakataon lang yan engr? walang pera tapos malamig ang panahon...hindi makagimik?

YODZ...ganun nga yata were just looking for excuses to put the blame into others.

XPROSAIC...naku ibang case na yata ito hehehe

POGING ILOCANO...yun lang mahirap hanapin, panano kaya sila makikita?

r-yo said...

am a comm arts grad too. pero napadpad na sa ibang mundo. inggit pa rin ako sa inyong napunta sa linyang pinangarap.

dencios said...

basta ang masasabi ko lang, kung anu man yang nasa puso mo gawin mo pag alam mo at sigurado kana sa mga plano mo sa buhay. dadating at dadating yan. tulad ng nasabi ko, pag anjan na ang mga bagay na ibibigay ng Diyos, di mo na talaga mapipigilan. decide wisely!

ang bait ko no? :D

PaJAY said...

MAg aabroad ka ba parekoy?...sige para madagdagan ang mga bayani!...lolz...

bomzz said...

Ka Mulong darating din yun panahon para sa iyo.. ganun ang nangyari sa akin noon...

dasal dasal lang parekoy darating ka din..dun dont give up... at kong sakali mang darating iyun ihanda mo ang sarili. mo...sa mga pagsubok at lalo na ang HOMESICK.... hehehe

pugadmaya said...

yes you did. :D but it's much harder to make sense of life when things crash on us and when our plans goes foiled..but life is a dead end, there's no choice but to move on every day and leave the past behind..because maybe, just maybe, you really are on the right track, and all you have to do is realign gears and go for the 'second mile' in order to reach your goal..

hayz..

:|

ako ba 'toh?

Dylan Dimaubusan said...

"...yun nga lang kailan ba natin malalaman na were lacking out of time?"

Pag nasa panahon na tayo ng pagsisisi... hahaha!

May mga bagay kasi na kahit anung gawin natin, di pa pala napapanahon. Hindi pa ako sigurado kung saan talaga ako patungo ngayon, ang kagandahan eh nasa isip kong magiging maganda yun..:D

HOMER said...

Ive felt what uv felt before. I think my post din akong ganito dati...
Hold on to your dreams, as long as your living kaya pang maabot yan..

abe mulong caracas said...

R-YO...nandito nga sa linyang ito pare pero after a few years pag walang nangyayari, maiisip mo din bakit ba ko napadpad dito.

DENCIO'S...oo bait mo nga bwahaha. ok na yun napag usapan na natin ito eh hehehe

PAJAY...ok lang parekoy, wow sarap yata matawag na bayani!

PUGADMAYA...oo alam ko ikaw yan. just internalize lang din kung ano yung comment mo, im sure makakatulong din sa iyo!

DYLAN...ang kagandahan lang dun...ang sabi mo nga...eh maganda ka!

panalo!

HOMER...hawak lang ako...yung mahigpit!

JayAshKal said...

Ka Mulong depende kung ano ang hinahanap mo. Travelling and working overseas is part of the challenge to prove to oneself that you can make it anywhere.

I love to travel and maybe you do to. So hangagang bata at single [which I am assuming] there's no harm in finding work elsewhere lalo na kung saan ka happy at contented.

Good luck!
