Be Still

be still

I know it’s been ages since I have posted anything in this blog. But there is a good reason for my long absence.

I have a job!

Yup, and it’s more than perfect.

Why? Because I was rehired by my former employer which means that I am familiar with the business, the work ethics, and I have great people to work with. But more than that, I have been performing my work from home. No hassles with commuting from house to work and all the inconveniences that come with it. So I guess, you could say, to me, this is an answered prayer.

So why the long absence? Because I have been so busy. It’s a humongous feat trying to balance between my domestic chores, personal concerns and regular job.  At the end of the week, I often times find myself exhausted and craving for that one day to just have some time to relax and take it easy…

This morning, a friend sent me a message on my phone. My heart skipped a beat because it hit home.

“Calmness of mind is one of the crown jewels of wisdom. The more tranquil you are, the greater is your power for good.

Self control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power. “

“What is the fuss all about?” I ended up asking myself.

Instead of rushing and getting worried with the “what ifs” of life. I realized that I have been robbing myself the opportunity to enjoy the present moment.

It was Mother Teresa that said:

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

As I start the day, and end this article I have one last thing to say. Where can I find strength and wisdom to be calm in the midst of chaos?

“Be still and know that I am God… ” Psalm  46:10
