I believe relationships are important more than anything else, friendships and your interactions with those people around you. Nothing is more rewarding than to have a special connection with like-minded people or at least have a pleasant relationship with those people we often see & interact everyday. I had two dinner outings this week. I had another of my monthly dinner with my fellow kababayan doctors working at different branches of the same company as me. Isn’t it just a relief to have a sounding board and people to ask when you yourself is doubting yourself? What may seem before to be an insurmountable stresses of work or expat life can pass off as a trivial joke to tell which makes everything light and funny when you share it. I also has a buffet dinner outing with my colleagues from the clinic. It was just a nice night of enjoying food, allowing our stomachs to expand to its gastronomic & belt-challenging ability and talk about other things besides work. It helps a lot if you go to work with people you like. It makes work a lot easier and no negative energy is added to the common stresses of a life of a doctor.
This week I also had my 3-day vacation leave which I spent (without any guilt) lazing around the house and playing with my son. Ahhh, my last vacation leave for the year. I deserve to rest. We all do. We should always take time to slow down, rejuvenate ourselves and meditate & reevaluate our life, our goals & ourselves.
I took it also as an opportunity to do the last homework for Blogging Your Way Photography & Styling Online Workshop. It was an enriching and fun workshop, all done online. I met several new online friends through the class and I learn so much from it. I will be blogging about it soon, watch out for it. For the meantime, here are some of the photos I have done.
I also saw the 2016 Pantone colors. I love it! Rose Quartz and Serenity. I love how pretty and subtle the colors are. It reminds me of my blog colors. I couldn’t help but to take a photo of the neighbourhood walls and my little notebook to represent the 2016 colors. May we all have a serene and peaceful 2016 just like the Serenity Blue color and rose quartz (or the blush pink) symbolises love & romance, may we all have lots of love & romance next year too.
