Hello 2014! I know it's kinda late. Pardon me cause I am too busy with life :P
Just 2 weeks into 2014 & I have gained so much experience already. So many first times for me this year.
First time spending the new year away from home.
First time staying alone at a new place, faraway from home.
First time driving alone at an unfamiliar place.
First time having a job & frequently need to remind myself that I am no longer a student.
and more to come.....
Staying faraway from the comfort of home had opened up a lot of learning opportunities for me. Being new at an unfamiliar place not knowing the people here yet had forced me to be brave & independent. It's like being thrown into a deep ocean. To survive, you have to do something. One thing I learnt, ask if you don't know even if it might sound stupid at times. As the scripture says "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you" (Matthew 7;7)
When I first got to know I was posted to Ipoh, there was this excitement but deep inside me, I know I am scared. It was a rush trying to settle everything within the time frame of a few days after my parents came back from China & before the school reopens.With God's grace, I managed to settle into a house just a day before I was supposed to report for duty. As I started attending the churches here, my social network widens. Somehow, one person leads to another and is inter-related to one another. God is just amazing.
Working life is still like a puzzle at the moment. Learning about the work procedures, managing the patients on my own, trying to establish a good relationship with the colleagues, getting to know the way around the hospital etc is like fitting a piece of a puzzle at a time. At the moment, I am slowly coping with everything but of cause there is still this sense of feeling blur, lost & confused at times. Guess this is just a phase everyone goes through in the beginning! Looking forward to what God has in store for me for the rest of the year! :)
