Principles, Passion and Joy

My dear blogettes, there won't be any picture today. I just need to share with u'ol certain "serious" issue. Not whimsical issue (wink, wink).


The above heading - PRINCIPLES, PASSION AND JOY. I borrow this sentence by an article written by Felix Abisheganaden in NST sometimes ago. The article was about being a principled-centred individuals, both on professional and personal levels. Being true to one self and finding joy and meaning to one's purpose in life- be it career wise or personal.


Changes are inevitable, no matter how much one resist it. I'm trying to write this in a metaphoric way, so as not to offend anyone. The way we handled things also evolved in some way or another. Lately, Whimsy is facing some challenges that shake the deepest core of my being (cewah!). It made me question my own principles, passion and joy. It raised question on what actually is my objective career wise. Am I just doing something without any objective? Who my master is? Where do my loyalty lies? Am i doing wrong?


I am so glad my dear friends to tell u that in a small way I manage to clear some questions; to re-prioritize things and issues. I know what my objective is now. I realised that in accomplishing a project, I am not doing them for personal glory, but for the end objective. I know who my master is now. I hope and will try to strive to ensure whatever I'm doing is not to please "certain human being" but to respect the task entrusted to us to manage taxpayers' money. Some people said I was wrong in handling "this current crisis", I should bowed down and clear the mess left and to protect certain individual. Initially, that statement made me wonder whether I should be doing that, BUT now I know he is so WRONG. One cannot give justification or to correct something that is clearly wrong, in the eyes of law or simply the Law of Life.


Certain changes makes us wonder whether one is victimised, being made a "scapegoat", should we then engage in vengeful thoughts and acts. If one chose to be vengeful, then one is allowing oneself to be pulled into a maelstrom that makes everything worse.


My dear friends, I hope this challenges will make me a better person, to be re-energized in my career, and to be a principled, passionate and joyful human being.
