It has been a busy day. I was half convinced that God has planned this busyness for me today because it was going to be an emotional day. One of my teammates have resigned and this is her last day. With heavy heart we see her leave, but I was strangely delighted of her departure because I know it's the best for her. For that, I am glad. And the busyness kept me from exploring how I would truly feel about her departure.

She sat down next to me at the last few minutes we had together, sighed out loud and asked, "What's next? What should be done?" and I stared at her surprisingly. She should be happy that this is the last day of her work. There is a brighter future ahead for her as she stepped into something new. But here she was, sighing out loud while I kept that silly smile plastered on my face.
"What do you mean what's next? Don't worry about everyone else here. We'll get used to having ourselves now. You should just enjoy..."
She cut in before I could finish my sentences, "Silly, I am asking what are you going to do now?"
I'm going to go home and sleep. Duh! Of course, I didn't say that. It touched me that at this final moment, all she could think of is how will I cope from today onwards? Do I look that weak? I haven't gotten the chance to tell her about the invincible strength I suddenly found throughout this week; a strength that would pull me through the challenges ahead (I hope).
And I am utterly convinced that it's a kind of strength that will spell SERIOUSNESS to the people I work with. I just have this heavy words blinking in my life that says 'If you step on my toes, I am going to storm you flat'. It's a dangerous strength from deep within. But it just might be the kind of strength I need to pull me through the rest of the phrase of life which I am currently at. With this new found strength, worry not, my friend. I'll knock them flat on your behalf!
Mini Bites of the day: A pinch of faith is all you need to garner the strength to pull you through yet another rocking situation in your life.
