One morning when I was having breakfast, I was so fatigued that I couldn’t think. I stared at the back of the credit card bill on which I found the ads of several resort hotels. At that moment I felt the urge to call and book a room. I have been longing to take a few days off and do nothing. Yet I am not really loaded with more work than I can take. Maybe I have accumulated enough pressure along the way, and now it’s time to let it all out.
However, I don’t want to run away. Instead, I desire more than anything else to find a balance right here and now. I hope that when I get up every morning, I have forgotten yesterday’s problems. I notice that the more stressed I am, the more considerate people are to me. For example, Mr. Season said to me, “I am glad you are my partner.” I was touched beyond the description of words when I heard it, especially when one of our journeys is about to end. Besides, I have to admit to myself again and again that I have the best team in the world. I work with such great kids that I have nothing to complain about. I can only thank God for my damned good luck.
Maybe we are neither the smartest nor the best, but we are no doubt the most hard-working people with the same goal. And I truly hope that others get to see how much effort lies behind everyone’s ten-minute presentation on the stage next week!
