I have been relatively lost recently, figuring out the next step of my life. I have tried talking to many people but none really can tell me what I should be doing next.
I have been planning many times for long time, thinking during sleepless nights and counting those abstract analysis in order to gauge my next time.
I love life, I embrace my life and I have been living the 10 years plan I have set. Having it achieved worries me.
I fear I may not know what to do next in life;
I fear I will not have something new to look forward to;
I fear being a nobody at the end of my life in this world;
I fear of being not enough as a daughter, sister, aunt, friend or worker;
I fear the most of being not good enough as a world growth contributor.
What if I have done not enough today to be a better me than yesterday?
I see many people have been doing it their way or the way they wanted me to see it as. When can I be like that?
Little did I know that a gathering I have consistently missed in the last 10 years would bring difference to my life, thoughts and my whereabouts.
My primary classmates, were people whom I genuinely missed because of how they make me feel when I am around them. They don't judge me, is always subjective and have always let me feel welcomed in the group, although I have missed almost 100% of the gathering in the last 10 years.
They did not judge me.
They were eye openers to me.
They have inspired me to be myself.
They remind me not to rush the clock because of someone else.
They are all diligent people working in their field of expertise.
They have reminded me that I should look out of my desk to be different.
I am grateful and thankful that this bunch of people actually look forward to having a gathering every year, having the effort to make it to the gatherings. I will do my best to attend all the gatherings in future because I know I will be inspired even more.
