“Suddenly I see, this is what I want to be…”

(Title from the KT Tunstall song mentioned in the previous post)

The less exciting thing about working from home is that you don’t have an IT department you can call if your internet connection goes down. That happened to me today. No problem, I thought, I’ll just go the cafe down the street because they have free wi-fi. Well, I didn’t consider that maybe they use the same provider that I do, so they didn’t have internet either. No worries, I still enjoyed a good cup of hot chocolate and did some translating before venturing out to the next internet cafe.

Luckily the next one I found had readily working internet, so I could work. I could translate without the internet, but having internet access is so valuable because sometimes there is terminology that is specific to a field, and most of the time I like to do research on the subject of the translation before I delve into it. Luckily, I was saved by the internet cafe, where I am sitting right now.

This is a document from a new agency who I hope will like what I do and take me on for more work in the future. I like this assignment as it’s interesting and I understand it very well. A moment ago, I was typing and researching away, when I looked up and saw my reflection in the mirror (I am facing a mirrored wall). I saw that I look happy. Relaxed. At peace. I’m not wearing any makeup today, which I think normally makes me look tired, but today I look comfortable and refreshed. I look good. I feel good. I’m doing what I’m supposed to do, what I want to do in my heart of hearts.
This is what I want to be.

Inspirational Tune of the Week

This is by a singer called KT Tunstall, who DID IT when they told her that she couldn’t.

CLICK HERE to listen to the song and see the video.
“Suddenly I See”, by KT Tunstall

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world
You can hear she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she’s born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you’re trying to remember
What you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

And she’s taller than most
And she’s looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
