What Could Have Been

It's promotion season again in auditing firms. 

Sometimes, I cannot help but think that if I hadn't left, maybe I would have been promoted once or twice already. 

Yes, sometimes I do get envious especially when I log in to Facebook and see my friends getting promoted. (But, I'm happy for them. Really!)

Also, I cannot help but feel a little bit insecure especially now that my plans are not going according to, well, plan. 

But, like what I always do, I stop and pray and lift up to God all my envy, insecurities, and worries so I don't dwell on what could have been. 

Instead, I try my best to focus on the hand I've been dealt. I know there's a reason and purpose for this hand.

I also try to remember why I took the leap in the first place and the lessons I learned from taking the leap. Maybe if I hadn't left, I wouldn't have grown or matured as much. 

Lastly, instead of focusing on what could have been, I'll try to focus more on what is and make the most of it. 

I still wouldn't have it any other way. 


P.S. Congratulations to all my friends and colleagues at PwC, the best firm in the world (of course I'm biased), who got promoted yesterday! Great job, guys!
