Flexibility is the key to avoid stress these days. The closer I am to my departure, the more stress I feel, especially when faced with issues at work. I try not to let these matters affect me anyway. I should just be thrilled right now while I wait for my ticket, and I hope the weather in Sydney won't dampen my excitement. It will be my first winter and I doubt I will be able to adjust right away, especially that it’s still dry hot season with El Nino here in the Philippines. But then again, as what I keep saying, wherever I go, I should bring my own sunshine.
