Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
Patience is a virtue and patience is one of the fruits of the spirit. Patience is also something that we are severely lacking. With a thousand and one things to do before December, it is only normal that we are caught in a mad race against time right? And it is obvious that idle waiting is a waste of time. No one likes to wait but all week long, we have been tasked to wait instead of checking off our long list of things with super efficiency.
Almost nothing went according to our plans and we were rejected at every turn. We even had to wait a good 20 minutes at a drive-thru for just one cup of Ribena chill because the machine broke down. We were seriously delirious by then and channelled all frustrations into crazy bouts of laughter in the car. Well, at the very least we were rewarded with a good tasting cup of icy drink and a free packet of freshly fried fries for being good patient customers. Oh, the irony the life.
While we struggle to come to terms with waiting, we have learned that waiting is not all that bad when coupled with a good friend, some positive attitude and a whole lot of humour. So, in all things and in situations, always look on the bright side of life!
Min: It has been an odd week. While Jia was rushing to finish up as much as she can before her trip, I was clearly in a daze. We drove around a lot and since I was in a daze most of the time, I ended up making many wrong turns and missing every other exit. I was terribly irritated with myself because I couldn't seem to concentrate at all. I'm thankful for the people around me, including Jia, for being so patient with me. Slowly but surely, my mood lifted and we ended up laughing to anything and everything. So it's true. Positivity and a little cheer can make life so much better.
Jia: Hello from Jeju, South Korea! I have been here for 2 days, feeling pretty chilly and eating a ton. The cold brings out the gluttons in my family. On the first day alone, we ate 5 meals and bought way too much junk food for our apartment's tiny kitchen. I'm still in a work zone though, with work thoughts in my head ever so often. I guess that's the life of a business owner, yeah? But still, I have more days to go and I hope I'll have an absolute blast with my family ❤️ cheers to bonding time!
Did you have a good week? :)
With Love, Min+Jia.
