Life’s Gentle Reminders

So, I’m back from my hiatus.

I’m sorry for have not writing a single post for the last two and half months. It was a very hectic, yet meaningful time for me, like what I wrote about in beautiful transitions- this was a period of beautiful transitions and I had to embrace it.

In February I almost lost my sister to a car crash- minor head injury, broken collar bone, broken femur, fractured hip and collapsed lung. Only God alone saved her and pulled her through those testing weeks in hospital. She’s alright now, only a few more months to go, and with the help of physiotherapy, she should be able to walk again.

I had also just moved back home in December, after a year in the UK, flooded with the readjusting, reconnecting, taking turns at hospital, babysitting my nephew, job hunting, among other things. I now have two part- time jobs and have started my own marketing communications firm with two of my very good colleagues. It has been chaotic, and I’m still finding my way. But my transition became beautiful when I started embracing all the changes and allowing them to fall into place without interfering.

Once again, I couldn’t have survived this period without God, family, friends, and colleagues.

Through my transitioning period, I was reminded that I need to be patient, kind, strong, loving, thankful, humble, persistent, passionate, and have faith- that no matter what happens in life, I will be able to get through it. Also, that life is a learning process and not every lesson is seamless, and that everything has its purpose, even if I don’t understand it- just one of life’s gentle reminders.
