It has been a long while since I left the country alone to discover new ideas, time alone to reflect and most importantly to be inspired. These last few days away alone brought back lots of good memories of how I have forgotten the beauty of just living without any responsibility. You see, the more responsible I became over the course of my life made others expect me to be more responsible for more than I ever wanted to be. It just never ends and the responsibilities just kept on piling together with the life and work pressure & stress that was uncalled for that made me unhealthy and unhappy. The last few days allowed me to roam freely, meet freely, explore freely & most importantly do freely without anyone to care for or adjust my decisions for anyone. I felt emancipated. I felt real freedom and I was at peace with myself.
As I return home to Malaysia, I am reminded that I too have many options & choices as I continue to become a better version of myself and saying no to people is something that I will be doing a lot more. I am done chasing after continuous success but focused on attracting success for a more sustainable me. So if you expect me to just say yes for opportunities that are not fit to my lifestyle & heart desires, the answer will be a big NO. My advice for you to be able to perform and do exceptionally well is to make sure that whatever that you are doing, the people that are with you & the timing for all that you do is the right fit for you. Take care of yourself as nothing is more important than you for yourself.
I will and I am. What about you?
