Change.

Posted in Uncategorized on 30/10/2013 by Joel

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Much to no one’s chagrin I would expect. Hahaha. More importantly, I actually came here to make a point. From my last post till my recent one—what have I achieved? Can I look back and actually tell myself : “Hey, that was a job well done, buddy.”

Well, not really. 

I did a few notable things

  • Learn to drive.
  • Still in a loving relationship with Val
  • Made it to NUS Biz.
  • Got my first bank stint.
  • Picked up a few new skills here and there.

But… that’s just all ON-THE-SURFACE things and changes. Have I really grown? Have I really changed
Nope. I’m pretty much still the same guy–just with a better tolerance for failure and a little more empathy as well as the same ol’ lack of discipline and horrendous time management.

Thus, this post will serve as a dedication to change. A dedication to growth. Not the shallow, I’m doing this new thing or adopting this new fad kinda change. But deep  So that when I come back here after another probable long hiatus– I can proudly say. “Wow, how much I have grown since my last post”

Let’s Roll.

Shatter.

Playoffs.

Courage.

Expectation.

Tradition.

To understand the best, you have to look closer. 

What’s revealed is that,

sweat and bruises,

heart and heroics; none of these can guarantee success.

But success,

NEVER comes without them.

When is victory decided?

The perfect moment?

The right time?

These are NOT things you WAIT for.

These are things you CREATE.

Through focus and discipline, moves and might.

because tomorrow can easily become next year.

And because the touch of gold plating beats the search for a sliver lining.

I feel it. I’m coming back. Slowly but surely. Even amidst the regressions…I’m feeling it again.

Big picture.

Hey there. I’m well aware that people usually blog about their most recent happenings, so I will conform to this norm and begin like so. It’s a day after Valentine’s Day and well, although I don’t say it often, I’m pretty happy as of late, even though currently I’m feeling abit under the weather. Valentine’s Day itself was great, I brought Val to a nice restaurant, had awesome lamb there and after that we went for karaoke. It was fun fun fun and as always, managed to take my mind of the world for once.

 

But today, at whilst dining at pastamania, it all came rushing back to me again. It seems to me like everyone sees something bigger in life, like they all have plans, are probably going to do something worthwhile and maybe even give back to the community! But what about me? I have no idea what I’m doing at all. Everyday, I’m just going through the motions but am I really living? I just… focus on all the mundane things in life—-car, dota, basketball,rank. Where is my big picture, far ahead thinking? The kind of thoughts that make life meaningful. The kinds of thoughts that change the world? The vision, the dreams of something bigger? The thoughts that goes beyond my selfish self?

Changing the world, experiencing new things, seeing the many sights the world has to offer… What will be my paradigm that I will view the world with? My very own lasting perspective, how I see life uniquely, like no one else does?  I shan’t even get started on making the world a better place or making an impact on society or the lives of others…..

If only I could zoom  out of the mundanity of modern life… and see the big picture.

After all, a man is only as large as his vision.
