Turning 30! ~ an introspection

18 Oct

Not too long ago, I turned 30 in Shanghai. It went by so quickly that I hardly noticed it. When I got back from Shanghai, I was caught up with a major crisis of my own doing. Sigh… Consequently, I was a little distracted and now I have finally found the time to think and put things in perspective. 

What I have achieved so far is not really what I originally had in mind and actually, I was never really a go-getter or someone with grand plans anyway. All the planning and go-getting fell down from the sky in form of Rinpoche. Hence, at 30, I did make some headway with the publication of my book – There's no way but up and Vajrayogini coffee table book. Well, this is not to mention being awarded the position as Apprentice to Rinpoche's Liaison Council.


Look! I am trying to be all holy (YSH!) when I swore to Lord Setrap on being appointed.

Being amongst the council is an honour and a yardstick of how much more I have to go to fulfill in order to really be a real liaison. I am not a leader but then again, leaders are not born. There are tall hopes placed on my shoulders and at times I do have my moments of laziness – my greatest woe and foe. It has been a work-in-progress for as long as I remember . I win small battles sometimes and I got to work my way to the bigger ones. Anyway I do hope that when I turn 40, I wouldn't be still where I am right now. 

Hmm, 30…. another year and another decade… I guess, I can only look forward and make the best of what is to come…

    Your way must be long,
    Your heart round
    Keep from being angry
    Let the others be great
    Yourself small:).
