Time is money….

So I have decided to leave my job because I was no longer enjoying it. I loved the people and sometimes the things I do, but overall I wasn’t enjoying it. I know people always say to me “but at least you’re getting paid…” , well for me, time is money as well and just as important. If you are spending 50% of your day unhappy, that is time you will never get back and also time which you could have spent doing something you enjoy. I am lucky in the sense that I don’t have rent or any of such expenses to pay for so I can do that. But if you have the opportunity I think its important to remember…

“You work to live, not live to work”

There’s always going to be some aspect of your job you dislike, but if one day you feel that you are no longer motivated to go into work and you’d rather do other stuff you feel you’d enjoy more (despite less pay) then go for it if it is possible. Life is about enjoying, sometimes ups and downs, but an adventure what we can all learn from.

For me I found that I wasn’t being challenged at work anymore, I felt I wasn’t progressing the way I would like, it just didn’t feel right for me anymore, so I decided to make a change. There is no point in complaining about the same thing constantly. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I realized that I always wanted to do more than what I was doing at work, but I was just waiting for the opportunity… if you want something to happen you have to MAKE IT HAPPEN! Unless you change something in your life, nothing will change the path you’re walking. You are in control of your life, remember that!

Now I am feeling much better with myself and I can focus on what I truly enjoy and I am focusing on my own projects which I didn’t have time to do when I was working. It’s a game of give and take. You may be losing out on some things but the gain may be better than you had imagined.

This is what I truly believe in…

Happiness is not something you can just chase as a goal. Happiness isn’t something you can HOPE to have. Happiness is IN THE MOMENT. Happiness is A RESULT of what you do or WILL do. Your actions will determine whether you will be happy or not. So take a moment and just think what makes you truly happy and follow your instincts. Time is too precious to spend being unhappy or stressed, especially if you are spending more than 50% of your day feeling like that.

Go on, live a little. Cherish every moment and do things you enjoy.

Yours truly,

This Asian One,

Damn this! Almost done

So I have wasted yet another day for 2% but I honestly cannot help it!!
I am almost done… I think!
I realise in coding, every new success comes with new errors!!
This is weirdly fun… I am enjoying it and I think I’d enjoy it much more if it weren’t for the fact that I should be studying for exams!
