July. My birth month…has always been my favourite month because I would think July will bring good things. And if the months before that was not very good for me, I’ll give myself some encouragement and I’ll tell myself, July is going to do great things for me.
As I grow older, July tend to get a little more complicated. Maybe it’s the same or there’s nothing particularly special as compared to the other months but because I’ve always put emphasis on July…so I tend to be more aware of what is happening during the month.
This July is a very exciting month for me. Be it at work, at home, personal or business. Today for example, it dawned on me that I’m learning a lot in a span of a few months as compared to before. I’m grateful for what I have now even though sometimes I’m not happy. As always, after each incident, I’ll always ponder over it and I will question the reason to it, on why it’s happening. Sometimes I have my own analysis and I kinda talk myself into believing that ..that is the particular reason of why certain things happen and accepting that it is already fact and there’s nothing I can do to undo it. Sometimes I still don’t get the answer and figured..maybe, just maybe, I’ll get it the next time..
Whatever it is, life goes on and I think for as long as you’ve tried your best to live life, to do the right things based on your own call and judgement given the time, resources, situation and circumstances, it’s good enough. I think life gets more challenging as I grow older..some friends share the same sentiments too. I think I’ll call it “life after 25 and before 30”.
Had lunch with a friend who hails from the same hometown as me. We only meet once a year during Chinese New Year even though we’ve been working here for a few years. This is actually our first time meeting in KL after so long. It was nice to see him again and I just like catching up on stories and sharing life experiences with a friend you’ve not met for a long time, not very close with yet you can strike a decent and meaningful conversation. I enjoy rich conversation. You learn things from others, strike a chord in you if it’s the stories are similar and close to your heart. Then at least, you’ll feel normal that sometimes we go through certain phases in life…and we shouldn’t despair. There’s always a lesson that we can learn from the experiences we go through.
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
