I’ve always been the kind of person with no definite life plan.
When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to become a doctor. When I grew up, I realized I could never stand the sight of other people’s blood. How was I possibly going to attend to the sick?
When I entered college, I was dead sure I’d be enrolling for a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. However, I ended up pursuing Sociology-Anthropology. I spent the next seven years professionally working in the BPO industry, I loved those years. In all my life, I have never learned so much and absorbed so much than when I was in the corporate world. There may have been days when I questioned my decision to stay, but, in general, I was happy.
However, Fate had many other plans for me. I was given an opportunity to leave the corporate life and start a quieter work environment by working from home full-time. I took a chance, and I am so thankful to God that the risk paid off.
The past three months, hell, the past year has never been what I would have expected. For someone who doesn’t really plan on how my life should be, what I am going through now is still beyond my wildest imagination. Never would I have thought I’d be spending a 26-hour workday at home.
I am happy. I mean, what person would not love being able to work from home and still earn something decent? I don’t see far into the future, but I can honestly say that where my life is going now is absolutely the greatest surprise I have even received.
