Not All Those Who Wander are Lost
I woke up today with all the nerves in the world. Fuck! My heart was thumping faster than usual and my hands got cold. I don’t know what’s up with my system except that I might have a lot of interactions with my terror of a boss today. I needed a lot of report approvals from her and from the past weeks that had passed, the last thing that I wanted to do is to interact with her, even in the slightest bit.
Coffee! Yes, I blame it on the coffee, I swear! Not in the next million times that I will foresee these kind of stuffs to happen at work, I will halt on my coffee habit. I liked that it keeps me awake through my reading hours but it totally doesn’t help with my freaking abnormal nerves.
As of the moment of writing, I don’t have anything to do yet on a supposed to be busy Monday morning so I guessed that it would be great to retreat again to writing. Gosh! I missed this. Just to update my imaginary friends/readers, I am now a book blogger. I do promos, blog tours, reviews, release day blasts on the New Adult/Romance/Indie part of the book world. I do enjoy it a lot! When I get home, it takes my mind off of the stress that my corporate world has unfortunately bestowed upon me. I also get to interact with authors and other book lovers overseas. And of course, I get to have perks and privileges like getting Advanced Reader’s copy, signed books and swags from authors/fellow book bloggers.
Finally I have calmed down a little. Geez! Thank God for Citipointe too in whom my ears can run to when I need some reminders to focus on the hope rather than the despair. I am wandering right now, but I am not lost:
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
Thank you Lord for patting and massaging my shoulders. I don’t have panic attacks but just imaging my boss might give me one. Ugh.
