New Challenges

I had a good meeting on Thursday. It has shaped my weeks to come. This weekend has been a good time to stop and think, about where I am and where I want to go. This is my opportunity to define who I want to be in the next few years.

Technology is definitely a passion of mine. More importantly, the values that are important to me are family, work, personal goals.

I find it hard to define what it is that I want to be but lately, I'm really hoping that my life is shaping itself. I think all the painful lessons that I've gone through in life is really preparing for me to become who I needed to become.

Family values... I've always known that my family is important to me. I recently realized that I am an adult now and I should spend some time to know who my family are. I grew up not knowing most of my dad's side of the family. This needs to change. I need to take some time to learn who they are and spend some time with them. I'm not saying that my mom's side of the family is not important. They are. We've been close all these years and you are who you are because of the people around you. This summer, right or wrong, this is my time to learn about where I come from.

Work-wise, it has been up and down for me. Some days, I feel that I have a great future and some days I feel trapped. I've painted my corner and I am down a path that will make me a winner and a loser at the same time. The problem now is to make sure everyone else's feelings is not hurt. In business, most people don't care about that, but in the real life, people's feelings are affected and people's lives are affected. We will survive and be someone if our goals in life is to make a difference, and to be the best at what we can do.

If you asked me this very minute about my life, I can tell you what it looks like. I know who I want to be with, where I want to live and who I want to work form. But I know that this is not just about me. There are things that we need to figure out for ourselves and there are things that we need to understand that we're not the only people in the world. What you want is not exactly what you can have because you need to make sure others want the same thing.

I'll also tell you that I've always believed that every hard times that I've been through has been to prepare me for the worst. Every mistake I've made has been to teach me something new and every right challenge is to prepare me for the real world. I've been sheltered and I've been blessed by what I have. Life is never certain.

Relationship wise. I feel that I've faced many challenges along the way. Like everything else in my life, everything has been a challenge. Trust your decisions and learn from your mistakes is what I truly believe. Do what is right and do what feels right, even if it is hard. Relationships are hard and if you dare to dream big, some day it will all fall into place.

I'm very hopeful that my journey in the next few months will teach me something new. I'm extremely excited about the opportunities in front of me. I shouldn't doubt myself and second guess my path. I'm ready for a new chapter in my life.
