An Epiphany Of Sorts

A few days ago, I had a sudden realization... sometimes a good thing isn't always a good thing.

Let me elaborate.  About two years ago, I applied for a post.  I'd already given up on it when 'something' happened.  To summarize, I was given the opportunity to have the opportunity of joining a certain organization.  LOL... that sounds complicated, doesn't it? 

The catch would be that I'd probably have to pack my bags and move someplace far.  If you ask me how far, then I'd say, a bit beyond Labuan.

Perhaps in younger days, I would've started planning what I'd want to pack the very same day.  But now, I've gone through quite a number of experiences that has taught me that money and promotions aren't everything.  If I could, I would and all that jazz.  But in this case, I 'couldn't'.  And that was my epiphany.  I weighed my career prospects against family and family won hands down big time.  A decade ago, things would've been different.  But then, a decade ago, I was a different person.
