As I am about to embark on a new journey in my life soon, I can't help but reflect on my past endeavours. What I have done. What I have accomplished. Whether I have contributed to the betterment of people's lives. And moving forward, the uncertainty that lies ahead, whether I will be able to fit the job, how well I will work with the new "gang". Exciting things I will learn and pick up, the refreshing insights and how I can chart the organisation's direction forward in a whole hearted mindedness.
Exciting times ahead. I pray all will be well. I will treat everyone nicely :P
I also think about long time ago, when I was in Hong Kong for industry attachment during my uni days. I had the honor to meet 2 good people. In over a short span of barely 3 months, they have given me each one feedback that I will always remember and regard them as my guiding light. Really grateful for Leo and Violet's friendship.
I worked with Leo for a couple of months. During our exchanges of a mix of English, Mandarin and Cantonese, he observed something about me. That I am able to interpret things very quickly and apply them according. In chinese, the similar phrase is 举一反三. At that time I did not appreciate fully this compliment. Over the years, I have gradually learnt of this trait of mine, and have "roughly" been able to employ them to good use.
Violet was also with Leo in the same bus depot I was attached in. We also had numerous communications over the few months. One day, she told me something that was really out of the blue. Something that I have never wildly thought of, and to many people, may not even come off as a nice comment.
She said I am a person of a certain naivity. Someone who looks at the blue sky and appreciates the clouds. Someone who chooses to look at the positives and draw strength from it. Her last sentence was gold. She hopes that I will never lose this trait in the future.
Today, as I reflect on this comment. I understand totally what she is saying. And everyday I have been applying this philosophy. I don't know why, but that is really what I am about. Superficially, yes, it is some sort of negative connotation. But sometimes, that's what we need in life. In this world.
I draw another example which struck me very deep. When Rurouni Kenshin rescued Kaoru during their first encounter in her dojo, he said he preferred the ideal world that her father strives to pursue, and does not like the current situation of society. I think it strikes a very strong note on the passion and drive to make everything better. To make the world better. And I feel I also have some similar sort of belief.
So as I move forward, I will carry my believes and character, knowing that I can truly make things happen, and make the world better for everyone. Wish me luck :3
