I am grateful for my NEW job.

My boss is the kindest! How can someone so awesome be so down-to-earth. I have a lot to learn from her.

On my first day of work, she invited me over at her house for a meal. adobo new zealand

We had chicken adobo for lunch, plus the view of the cool blue sea.

In my few months as a tourist, I’ve heard (and seen a bit) of the kindness of New Zealanders. When I started working, that claim was absolutely validated.

I’m so used to feeling an ounce of discrimination or a bit of resistance from people every time I join a new team. I was mentally and emotionally ready for this.

But from the first week of work until today, my new workmates had been nothing but warm and helpful to the newbie.

I get to reconnect with the creative side of me…

I get to experience new and scary things…

Getting this job seemed like an impossible feat when I started my New Zealand journey. It wasn’t easy. I went through nights of crying, surrendering, bargaining and crying again. And just when I thought nothing’s happening, God orchestrated everything to fall into place.

There are still days when I don’t want to wake up anymore. There are moments when I ask myself, “why do I have to keep on working?”.

But if you see your job as a platform for your passion and purpose, then each day will bring something new for you.
