Chasing

Feeling the warmth of your embrace as I hear your breath whispering in my ear

Here under the sheets with you, feeling so comfortable and safe

Glaring at the window as dawn starts to break

My heart goes triple, wishing so hard that time will still

Push back the sun, how I wish I can

“Stop the ticking of the clock” that’s what my heart and mind shouts aloud

Yes, we shared the night together but I didn’t have enough of you

No, I want more of you and that’s what I’m crying for

Time hits 5 and the pain starts to build up and it feels like I’m about to lose

Like Cinderella watching out for 12 midnight,

My time is almost up and the thought of it kills me

How I wanted to feel you some more

No, I don’t want an hour

Let it be for a life time or even more than that

Your embrace tightens even more as if you will never let go

You made my eyes drown and tears flow like a river as I press my face on your arm

You’re blowing my mind as you gently kiss me

Makes my heart pound even more than what it can take and it makes me beg for more of you

Here comes the inevitable sun, telling us that we must now go on our separate ways

I was wishing so hard for it to never come, but it did anyway

Wish we can stay here in our little world a little longer and feel each other for the last time

Time is so cruel for it will never permit

Now who could deny that we wanted more than this?

Who could deny that we are more than this?

Create Something Every Day Challenge: Day 6

Almost done! Woohoo!!! And our topic for today is… tah-dah!

Uhmm… Can we skip this part?

The challenge for today entails doing something we fear. Very challenging, huh? Let’s see.

Let me tell you a little secret. In all my articles and in my job, I know I may sound that I’m confident. Actually I’m not. In fact, I’m scared of people (although my work is always, ALWAYS related to customer service). I am too scared to approach people because, number one: I fear REJECTION! Rejection is such a big word for me because it can bruise my ego. I believe I’m not the only one suffering from this kind of fear.

Usually, I will let opportunity pass me by, especially if the job description includes ‘ME’ calling out to the clients or I’m the first one to approach the client. I know being a sales person is very rewarding, but if you will offer me that kind of job… hmmm… I think I’ll pass. Next job order please!

Recently, I received a great news from my manager. Finally, I’m a licensed Financial Advisor! Woohoo! Wait! So that means, I’ll start doing the field work. That means, I have to approach people. That means, people will start running away from me because they think I’m about to sell them something. That means, I will be treated like network marketers. That means, I will be rejected over, and over, and over, and over… time and time again. Wow! What a bunch of positive thoughts I got there!

I have so many things that I fear relating to this financial solutions career that I’m trying to pursue, due to different factors, which I will discuss on a separate blog in the near future. 😉 . I’ve seen it worked for other people and I wish for it to work for me as well, because it’s a noble profession that I can truly be proud of. For me, it’s not going to be job but a noble cause. Did I say noble?

BUT! To achieve success in that kind of career, there are a lot of work that needs to be done within ‘ME’. I have to polish my skills. I have to polish how I convey messages to other people, because I’m prone of being misinterpreted. Whew! I know. I know. It’s not something new. But it is what it is and I know I have to get rid of my fears. I just have to strengthen myself in every means and ways I can possibly do.

So what are my activities for today that will help me conquer my fear:

  1. I will go back to the list I created during our training (it’s a list of prospect clients within my circle)
  2. I will imagine encountering those people and meeting them face to face (yayks!)
  3. I will create my script (yes, script) so I won’t stutter or I will not lose control of my thoughts during presentation
  4. Schedule appointments with prospect clients
  5. Good luck to me!

Or maybe I can ask a friend to help me out… I think that may help.

Now I’m left with no other options but to go through the process. Deep breathing… relax! 🙂 Yes! I’m saying this with conviction while trembling! It’s time to act despite of fear.

I’m gonna do this! Go! Go! Go

Wish me luck guys! I’ll do these things today.

How about you? What are the things you fear that you would like to conquer today?

With love and respect,

Ms. Rai
