Just to be clear, it’s not me who’s just landed a new job but my sister. Actually, today is her first day at work. I dunno with you, but every time my siblings take on a new adventure (be it anything), I’m the one who feels the stress or anxiety or pressure or excitement or whatever feeling you could associate with it. I feel as if I were the mother. It must be because, as the eldest child, I treat my siblings as my own children.
You see, my sister lost her job (she used to work as a retail assistant for Globe) a month or so ago. One morning after that misfortune, another misfortune happened. She accidentally hit her head in the restroom and got a big bump in her forehead which prevented her from looking for a new job for weeks. When she was finally able to apply for a job, she fortunately got one fast. And I couldn’t stop thanking God for the blessing.
Is it just me or every elder sister gets the same happy feeling for their younger sibling’s little accomplishment? I’m really happy for and proud of my sister for having found a new job. She’s very responsible and mature for her age (she’s turning 22 this year!) and I loved how she was so masipag and determined in looking for a new job even without our prodding.
Let’s all wish my sister a great amount of luck as she takes on the challenges of her new job, shall we? Thanks! 🙂
