How Are You ?
Lately the above question is not just a question; it’s more like a secret story of life which has been revealed by the world. Whilst the answer also not just an answer; it’s a reflection of somebody’s hope to embrace the latest economic situation.
Several days ago one of my friends asked me that question and for the first time in my life, it is so difficult for me to answer that question. Not because I don’t want to answer that question, but it’s because I don’t know how to answer that simple question.
How should I answer that ? Should I answer that I’m doing fine, that the business is tougher now ? Or Should I answer that everything is not as my expectation ? Or Should I answer that I’m in the middle of preparing myself to the worst possibility of the company’s latest situation ? Or Should I answer that I’m still lucky that I still have a job ?
It’s been a month I have to sing the same song to my team, give them the courage, give them the real picture of the industry, whilst deep down myself, I’m questioning the story that I sang for them.
It’s been more than a month after I realized that my dream had vanished. It’s been more than a month I tried to encourage myself that when the time’s come I’m ready.
So, how am I ?
Well, business is not as what expected. We have to rebuild it, start it from zero. For the time being I still have a job even though with the latest situation it’s hard to be firm.
So, how am I ?
I still have the spirit to build my dream, to start from zero. I still have what we’ve known as HOPE.
So how are you ?
