More time, please

Sometimes I wish I was granted one wish. My wish would be to have more time.

But if I was granted that time, would I cherish the time that I’m already given?

I guess not.

That’s the beauty of only being granted 24 hours and a limited time to live on this planet. It forces me to do what I want to do NOW.

Not tomorrow or another time. NOW!

I have many projects to complete and my mind have been clouded my doubt, disappointment, and stress.

What I do to power through it is to breathe deeply, treat myself to food, and watch some Vedic astrology videos as a reward for all that I’ve done.

I’m doing the best that I can. Sometimes I don’t think I’m doing enough.

Usually doing your best is enough.

Give yourself a pat on the back.

Being an introvert in communications

I just wanted to address the internal tug-of-war I go through when it comes to the career I’m in. I love meeting new people and that’s the joy of being in journalism.

But the unfortunate downfall is how tiring I feel after the day is done (if it is really done). I immediately crave my alone time whenever I am finished interviewing someone. I love interviewing them, but it takes a lot of energy out of me when I do it.

I ask myself, “If it’s so tiring, why are you still doing this?” It’s rewarding, that’s why. I love the look in the interviewee’s eyes after I completed the story. I love taking a step back and admire the work I created that can touch someone else’s life.

Even though the day-to-day lifestyle of being a journalist and/or writer is tiring, the work is rewarding. As the day ends, I spend time alone and I smile commending myself on the work that was done.
