Then indecision brings its own delays
And days lost lamenting over lost days
Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it
“Make the jump like the child did, without the rope…”
You can achieve almost anything. Your energy is perfectly primed and your ambitions are in tune with your destiny. Just keep working on your biggest goals.

When you are able to let go of things which you could not (and held tightly to) before
“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!’”
– Robert Browning
A fortune teller told me that, past a certain age, I would become more mature and settled down in thinking and emotions. I would leave behind the tumultuous youth years and move on to a better stage in life.
When I heard that, I was thinking, don’t people mature as they grow older? That’s such a no-brainer…
Recently, whilst doing some self-reflection, I realise there is truth in what he said. Not just in a general way, but specifically to my life journey so far.
I feel clearer in knowing who I am, what I want, what I like. With clarity comes confidence and self-assurance.
I no longer fret when I see people have something I don’t have. I no longer envy people with seemingly colorful personalities and lifestyles. I am comfortable with who I am. I know what my goals are.
I never really had a “crazy” youth doing the things youths do. Never really let my hair down. Never let myself play. I was the workaholic, academic studious type.
As I grow older, I seem to ditch the “me” in my younger days, for a more relaxed and less intellectual person. More hands-on, more of a go-getter. I still feel guilty when I relax, though 🙂 It is rather difficult to tone down the workaholic nature in me. I have to learn to play, can you believe this?!
God has led me on a strange journey. Critical turning moments of my life were often catalysed by a deep desire for change. Even though the turns led me to places I never thought I would go, I have been honest in answering the calls and giving my best.
It took lots of tears and toil to get to where I am. I have never given myself credit or acknowledged myself duly for it. This morning I had an epiphany that I should feel proud of myself 🙂 It is not an easy feat. Many people would have given up and chosen the easy road. I am proud of myself.
It is a road less travelled. I am grateful for it. 🙂 I am thankful for my job. It has taught me a lot about myself. I have grown by engaging in it. Taken better control of my emotions. Declutter my mind.
Thank you, dear God.
It is a beautiful day 🙂« Previous Entries
