Writer’s Note: I’m posting 2 today just to tell WordPress I’m still alive! I actually want to write something about holidays or the new year but I couldn’t find the time to write about it yet so anyway, I’m posting my thoughts these past days. This is related to my struggle with changes.

To myself:
Six days without caffeine yet I’m surviving
I’m coping with the changes but I’m struggling
I feel worse each day yet I am delighted
And I never thought I would be this excited

To my spouse:
These are all new to me so please bear with me
I will be moody, I will be more whiny
But I’ll be less frustrated in each work day
With this new purpose, I’ll have no more dismay (read: work dismay, who cares about work now? ;P)

To our little one:
Just hang on tight, be well, grow strong and healthy
‘Til you’re ready for the world, see its beauty
You’re a divine gift, a wonderful blessing
For your arrival, we’ll be gladly waiting

Struggling With Changes

Writer’s Note: I haven’t posted since last week! Not that I’m not writing, it’s because I’m struggling and overwhelmed with changes. What a timing to get a new job! if I had known I would go through these physical changes, including changes to priorities next year, I definitely would not move to a new job/company. Anyways, I’m welcoming these change despite my struggle with them. Here goes…

I used to enjoy watching people pass by
Observing them, wondering what their thoughts were
Now I feel dizzy with every move they make
This is one of the changes I’ll have to embrace

I used to like the aroma of coffee
It’s awakening, it’s stimulating
Now I feel awful with just a thought of it
It is another change that I’m struggling with

I used to work out until I lose my breath
It was to compensate for all the junk I ate
Now I have to eat right, don’t over exercise
I wonder when my routine can adjust

Changes, changes, oh why so many changes?
It’s tough but I’m looking forward to more changes
I maybe giving up some things I enjoy
But the one I’ll gain is someone who means so much more
