So let me pose this question to all.

Why is it, that we only evaluate our life when there's drama going on?

Can we not evaluate even when there's good times?

Can we not sit back and think about why all these good things are happening?

Why whenever we question the good things that come our way, everyone will just tell us to keep quiet, and just enjoy the ride?

Admittedly, there are some people who are as conscious of the good things as they are of the bad.

So why can't we be like them?

Why should we question only when bad befalls us?


I actually think that I'm pretty lucky to be where I am at this moment. Granted, there are times where I wish it's better, but all things considered, I have people I can really call my friends, my family is well, there's a small (and I mean, REALLY small) sliver of something happening, and work is good. STRESSFUL, but good. WHY? cos it tells me that I still have many more things to learn, many more experiences to go through, and that life is not perfect.

I look at other colleagues and I marvel at their conviction, and how they persevere (though not without complaints), but at the end of the day, they get the job done.

Ah Boy says I'm very very very workaholic. I would want to justify that, but sometimes it's hard when it's something you want to excel in, but also want to have a life.

I think it's not wrong to want to have a life outside of work. Though sometimes, the nature of the work requires you to be 'on-call' 24/7 :p Some people are not able to do that, and yet some do it perfectly well. So, the questions that begs to be asked: "How do they do it?"

I guess there's not right formula for it. I would think you have to be really passionate about what you do, and you need to feel the need to want to do it, amongst other things. Otherwise, you'll feel drained, and burdened, and in the long run, you just might start to loath what you do (if you haven't already).

But then again, that's just me :/
