What a beautiful verse. What a simple and meaningful verse. Soothing to the soul.
I want to share a story last Friday.
My aunt's friend managed to find and engaged with me in a meeting. She was so excited to meet me. She told me she even come and stay at our house when she came for her scholarship interview. Obviously, I cannot remember this because I was in primary school. The age gap between my aunt and myself is 8 years. I cannot remember her, but she was really keen to find Aini and me, that she even asked me to snap a picture with her. And to her excitement, she shared the picture with my aunt.
I received a wonderful news last week about my work. People appreciated what I did, and it is indeed an achievement for me. Last 2 years, I was really really down. And that affects my work, a lot. Alhamdulillah, I met with my current boss (who is actually my superior more than 10 years ago), and she offered me to transfer to her division.
So, back to the story of meeting my aunt's friend, this wonderful person, who is kind hearted, just got to know that I am an accountant. And she did ask why I am in a division not doing Finance matters. After I joined the current team, I got some unexpected offers from the management, who are concerned about me not utilising my ACCA membership. I feel honoured to receive the offers, nevertheless, I feel indebted to my current supervisor.
During my ACCA journey, I found that I love to do business analysis and data analytic. That is when I decided that I should do something that I love, rather than being tied to do Operational Finance / Accounting matters. I have been doing operational accounting for more than 8 years, thus being a Business Accountant is like a dream come true for me.
I realised that after such a long working journey, even though my promotion come quite late, I would rather do something I love rather than being promoted but not enjoying my work.
Alhamdulillah for the blessing. Indeed, it is true that when the hardship is gone, then you will be at ease.
