Half and Half

**posted at the old NAIA, which, to my delight, has a weak wifi signal.:-)

That is what I would have to reply when people ask me whether I am excited to leave for the UK. Half of me just went through a 2006 issue of Trafalgar Travel Book and got really excited about the places I will be able to visit while there, and the other half wishes I could stay on in Manila to do some more work.

The thing is, a lot of good things have been happening in work and it seems a pity to leave them. I am actually leaving them to able hands but still…

It’s the control freak in me who wants to always be around to set things up and work things out—but God reminded me, “You know what, the world actually continues to spin on its axis quite without incident while you sleep!”

Oh yeah, Lord, thanks for reminding me You’re in charge of my work since it is after all Your work.

So I take a step of faith—both ways—away from the work that I love, and into a new and unknown future.

Now I am 100% excited.

Cheerio, and may you also experience how it is to leave things to the Boss!

"Half and half!" a great answer when you have mixed emotions. Here's an alternative response, that says it all, and gets a laugh ... (and a laugh is always good when you have mixed emotions)

So, how do you feel about going to the UK?

ipanema said...

hey, i know you're in England right now. am not sure which part though. anyway, wala naman ako dun ...hahahha. sya, ingat dyan. pag may nag propose, yes agad! :)

Annamanila said...

I am glad that in the english parts where you are people smile and are friendly. It makes all the difference even to a travel-jaded gypsy, doesn't it .. to feel she's in a warm place although the temperature might dip.

Ano na nga bang season and inabutan mo dyan ... nearing winter na ba? A cozy fire to keep you warm then! -- and I don't just mean the fire that can be sparked by a match.

Gypsy said...

Ipanema, wow ha parang napaka sure mo na me magpopropose!! ;)

Anna, its just slowly going into Autumn so its nice that I can still wear my flipflops and enjoy the sun outside..a cozy "fire"??..hmm...err...hehehe...
