I haven't had much time for reflection today, but it was my first day of work in the New Year. It was fun all-in-all, to be honest & I am looking forward to working a lot more in this New Year. However, I have been feeling completely fatigued and exhausted the past week & I think that it would do me a lot of good to take some time off for myself just to recharge and recover. Normally, I'd book a flight out somewhere quieter, away from the constant noise and work chatter here in Singapore, so that I can shut off from the outside world for awhile and retreat into my inner sanctuary. But that is not very possible given the current travel situation. Good news is that 2 of my Malaysian friends are moving back to Singapore because job prospects (as well as health prospects) here are much better compared to just across the border. So, I'm planning a homecoming party for them, so that we can all hang out and catch-up on years of gossip *ahem* life stories. I'm just happy to have more friends back in Singapore, that's all. I can't wait to feel better & energised for the work life ahead. // Thank you, Jesus, for everything. I need you now more than ever & I am very grateful for everything that you've blessed me with thus far. Please grant me the energy to carry out your plans for me & help me in my career this year as I have so much to do & I know that I can't do it alone. Please be with me. AMEN.
