" WHO HAS BEEN THE GREATEST INFLUENCE THIS YEAR?"
Who has been my greatest influence this year?
I guess i should say who has i allow myself to be influenced greatly.
My teacher in Singapore, James.
Because, he put in a great amount of effort to understand me as a person first.
With full sincerity and consistency. Never a time he pressurized me until I'm ready for my turn to understand what his teachings.
As years pass by, i have learn to be really selective with the people i spend time with.
Looking back, i often laughed at myself how naive i was; yet of course i have no regret at all for what i had went through.
" You are too young & naive"
" You are so blur!"
" You are too emotional"
" You are not being smart enough"
" You are such a push-over"
" You don't have to be so nice"..... and on & one.
Remarks that i received too often:)
Sometimes i thought, if i have a chance to re-live those years again, i would probably make the same choice.
" What if I'm going to die today? There are still things i have yet done."
No kidding. This is something i told myself regularly.
How far are we going to plan our life before we can savor it?
Not being adult, too playful? Maybe.
At least I'm glad that i manage to fulfill my bucket list that i owed myself for years.
Yeah, good & bad experiences keep me going forward, to who i am today:)
Actually,I'm pretty proud of myself the way i turn out to be now!
" Make mistakes, go ahead and make many mistake. But, make different ones."James used to say this pretty often.
I believe that at every stage of our lives, there we meet a person just at the right time to make that turn in our journey.
But of course, if we follow every turn, we will end up confused, lost and nowhere we want to end up in.
A wise choice, a wise turn, & a wise change.
There was a question that was pretty interesting:
There are 4 paths ( A,B,C,D)
Only 1 path leads to your destination.
How would you go about this journey?
