At this point in my life, I am basically at another cross roads after a year of being back in Malaysia. This is when you look to the right and weigh your options and to the left and do another weighing of your options in life.
Am usually the happy-go-lucky person that keeps going and going until my body tells me to stop which is actually happening right now. I am truly upset with my health and body because....no one will believe this even if I said it..
"I've been sick for ONE WHOLE MONTH"!
The same recurring symptoms, the cough, flu, sore throat and fever. I get well, and the next day, the same thing happens. That is why I started reflecting on what has lead me to where I am right now in my life. Do I want to continue down the path I am going? Pursuing my vision to unleash the potentials of youth in Malaysia through the media or simply pack my bags and go back to the USA where life is just one simple road..... get the PhD and do research or Teach?
But the past week, I met someone who actually help direct me somewhere, a person with her own life goals and vision because she has endured hardship when she was young. A person with ambition, but has taste hunger before because her grandparents didn't have enough money to feed her. A person that worked a full-time job when she was doing her degree in Accounting. She's the same age as me, and has achieved alot, a business in Cambodia, and Malaysia, and a full-fledge restaurant now. She's also a chartered accountant! She tells me....it took alot of HARD WORK and PASSION to get where she is. The best thing about her, she's sincere!!!
After meeting her, and now mulling through my thoughts, I am determined more than ever to continue down the path I've set to do. It's still a wonder to me how many people who meet me are interested and impressed with my visions, but no one gave me any direction or even helped me through it. The worst are those who know how to help but never utter a word of guidance. There were of course my close friends, boyfriend, and family to support me. Plus, my readers and people that I've worked with that believed in me, THANK YOU ALL!! Please continue believing that I can achieve what I've set out to do. Will put action where my mouth is.
Back to square one of last year, I think it's time for me to set a new timeline for next year and continue manifesting my goals. Being the "over-achiever" that I am, I will admit that I am stressed out to say the least the past month on how to move forward, and that's probably why I can't get well. Many or rather, close people around me would think that I've achieved quite a fair bit this past year.....my personal list which YOU don't have to read:p

Most importantly, I will need all of your support to make my dreams to unleash the potential in every Malaysian youth come true.
