It is scary, isn't it ?

A very dear friend of mine, whom i have considered as a younger sister, text me yesterday with this message. " My company sold already, am asked to leave end of Feb, please help to look out for jobs for me. thank you."

It is scary, isn't it? where life suddenly takes an unexpected turn to the negative side, when some one suddenly tells you that you are no longer needed in your job or even abruptly you are tossed into whole world of uncertainties. Probably the situation can be more damned when one's age is considered not so "favourable" for recruitment.

When i read that text coming from my dear friend, i quickly called and comforted her, i knew as a dear brother to her, the least i could not is to let her know that i cared, i might not have the solutions for her dilemma or predicament but i do have a heart and a pair of ears.

Once smart Alec, once coined the phrase," dont be foolish enough to believe that life is fair, for it isn't and it shall never be." Now thinking about it, i guess i know how profound this phrase has turned out to be.

Q) Are you well prepared if you are faced with the same dilemma akin to my dear friend's?

By the way guys, if you are free, please hop over to her site and give her some words of comfort and encouragement if you could, jessie is her name. (www.localpgirl.blogspot.com)

P/S : Life is (_______________) Please help to fll in the blank

  1. I can't click the link la bro. U type wrongly kah? :( *sigh* Life is never fair... but God works in mysterious ways.Hopefully, this is a blessing in disguise for her.

    I used to think that God was punishing me for all the horrible happenings in 2009, but I now understand that god is trying to show me things. Complicated for me to explain... but... that is how I feel. God is great. He is showing us things.

  2. Life is full of surprises.. sometimes happy, sometimes sorrows, sometimes joy, sometimes disappointments... whatever it turns out to be, we still have to go thru all these .. those will make us wiser...

  3. The fill in the blank thing... I would probably say...

    Life is a bitch. You got to fuck it while it's beautiful and young.

    But on a more serious note, life is a blessing. No matter how hard our life is, there are more people out there who are not as fortunate as us. We may be struggling to make ends meet, but on the other part of the world, there's starvation and hunger. So in many ways, we are lucky.

    Sometimes, I hope my husband can understand this. Life is a blessing, and if we can be grateful to God for what we have and not blaming him for the things that happen and take it as a blessing, we would feel more at peace. Claire, Cikgu, Shakira...they all taught me this. And i feel so blessed now, even though my life is not that great either.

    Life is....to be enjoyed.
