Singing to a Different Tune

I’ll be singing to the tunes of Malaysia Truly Asia come this 7th of December 2009.

Yes! A new environment, a new place, new faces and… a new career.Terrified? That I am. Leaving the confines of my comfort zone in search of something that would make all the mornings more meaningful.

"The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become."

I am leaving behind a sense of security, a worry free life of knowing that I won’t be losing my job, and if I did fumble and tumble, it would be like moving a mountain to remove me from the system. I am leaving all that. Pension, golden handshakes and the likes of it.  Scary..yes. To me at least. It is something like wanting out of a perfect marriage to be with somebody to which my future with him is uncertain.

The decision did not come without its fair share of endless tossing and turning at night, long phone calls and streams of text messages were exchanged with a lot of  people. Some were supportive, some skeptical. I understand their concern, and I appreciate them all the more for it. 

A lot of people said a lot of things but most of them were excited for me on this new journey that I’m about to take.  But the most significant advice was a simple text from somebody I’ve known for years but have never met. It said;

Each person’s life is lead differently, so you have to decide based on how yours is going or the direction its heading.

I know that I want my life to be heading in a different direction as to where it is right now. I’m leaping, and I hope that I’ll land somewhere solid because I know, if I don’t take that leap, I’ll always be wondering about the what if’s. And I don’t want to wander, I want to find out.

But I have faith. Faith that this would all lead to something bigger and better. 

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase. – Martin Luther King

Here’s to a wonderful beginning of this new chapter in my life.
