You said, “there is life and there is work”.
From as long as I could remember work was everything to me. I derived immense pleasure from the challenges I face in the course of my career and I prided myself to being the needle in the haystack, not the haystack.
But as we enter the year 2018, a year which would have me turn 43 years of age, I thought to myself, that I should perhaps choose “life”? And maybe if I see enough and write it down, I would finally remember what it means, to be me. For me, living is a glittering lure, of surprises and opportunities, where you meet people who change your direction, or force you, to take a pause.
Wish me luck as I embark on a new challenge: to love and understand the people in my life, including myself.
Have a joyous 2018, and may we all get better with time.
Life is nothing but a series of hellos and goodbyes. Smile anyway.
