She walks to the open door with a folder on the right hand and a hand bag on the left. She smiles as she approaches a woman seated nearest to the entrance. “I came here for the interview,” she says with a smile on her face. She was ushered to another room where the hiring process is being held. She enters the room with strong determination and hopes that she will end this day with the same smile.
Some people would say that you only need one second of insane courage to change your life. But for a young woman seeking for a job, it takes an hour of preparation. Thirty minutes to bath, five minutes to comb her hair, and twenty five minutes to choose the right clothes and put on her make up. That’s how she builds her confidence and how she hides her uneasiness about the day. Everybody gets nervous, but she knows that she can always maintain her composure with the right clothes and enough make up.
Walking on the streets, she might be wandering how it feels to be with someone who holds her hands and opens the door for her. But she would always believe that God is in control of everything, the right person will be knocking on her door on the right time. She smiles as she remembers how her mom would tell her stories about meeting her dad and surprisingly falling in love with him on that same moment.
There will be times when she will be needing company, a person to talk to during a rough day. But she always knows where to go. Her mother is always on her garden, watering the orchids on a cool afternoon. She would give her a hug and waits for her to ask about her day. She would tell her how the paper works almost made her brain malfunction and waits for her mother’s funny comment. And they would both end the day with so much laughter. She goes to bed with a light heart, forgetting how awful her day was.
It is never easy to be a woman and she knows that. But her faith makes her stronger everyday. Her constant communication with God is her source of wisdom. Praying is the most effective therapy when she becomes emotionally unstable. She becomes sensitive to other’s feelings and learns how to handle tough situations. She faces problems with grace and confidence because she knows that at the end of the day, God is there to comfort her.
