People: Whatajoy Reloaded

Wednesdays... a day I used to look forward to catching up with my extended family in the church. This is my cell group now at SIB church (KL) ~ Whatajoy Reloaded.

How time flies, and it's been 4 years since I first met these people. In the process, we've been through multiple structure shuffles, witnessed budding love stories, marriage and baby popping...

Ever since traveling more on the job, I've kept in touch with some of them online and join them whenever I'm back in Malaysia.

Every time I join them though, I go through the same nostalgia. Feelings of "what I could have been part of" also seem to come upon me so strongly, so convincingly... that I am almost always tempted to just give up my jet-setting job for a more permanent lifestyle. I need a home!

Alas, that isn't possible for various reasons, and had to bid them goodbye again last night. This was after an intimate session with one of the two resident babies ~ Ethan, as well as a hearty supper of noodles.

See you again cell-people... in four months!

Life is like that hey? We always seem to yearn for something we don't have and the funny thing is sometimes you may not know it, but other ppl are yearning for what you do have.. it's a circle of envies and 'what if's'..
Contentment is 'wanting' something you already have..remember that =)

If people around the world are just content with what they have it would be so much better place to live in but then again, what fun is there?

I envy you that can travel so extensively, so my advise is, do it while you can, you never know what will happen tomorrow. You will know when you are ready for change & settle down! Good luck & Enjoy!

M@ri... Yeah, everybody says that. But it is getting a bit tiring after 5 years of traveling. But, I'll still try to enjoy :)
