Catching up for a moment

Wew, the year of 2013 seems to run fast like the Road Runner! Talking about the past months that I've been trying to get my shit together as a young adult, 2013 is surely a hell. I am wondering myself how could I survive the year and get through today? I guess that's what the quote "It always seems impossible until it's done" meant.

Moving to new job, new workplace which is quite a distance away from home is another thing. I can't even complain but feeling grateful of what I have, experience and feel in every step of the way. Have I been tired commuting from office to home and reverse? YES. Has it been so difficult finding time to even doing what I love, hobby and stuff? YES. Has it been tough to manage work challenges? YES.

The point is, I don't want to stress out anymore. This is my lesson learned. I was sick, got thyroid illness and something like that in which I've never experienced ever in my life. So I thought, why the heck I put my mind, my body, my health and my thought on the tip of any misery again? I need to handle my overthinking and the want-it-to-be-freaking-perfect that virgo-ish feature instead, and learn to relax and let it loose.

How was it? Does it work? Well, I can't say that I master it in one night, but there's progress. I try to calm down when things seem to be out of the plan that I made to myself. I seek the brightside, the future, and remember that nothing's permanent. I may have a bad day today or these hours, but I am the one who control myself when shit happens, and I can have great hours and days whenever I want to. You know, positive and bright vibes.

It is no secret that my head is still occupied with mixed stuff, necessary or not. But anyway, that would always be my head, it doesn't change. The things that changes is my action upon something, to always wisely choose what to show, do and neglect regarding my full-of-thoughts-and-ideas head. Is it gonna be easy? No. But it's damn worth to do.
