I can’t quite believe that it is almost 2 months since my last update, and I honestly have been neglecting this space more than I should. Life has been great and crazy and scary and hectic and tiring and invigorating and so many other different opposing adjectives all rolled into one. The thing is, we tend to prefer to curate the prettier pictures in life than to recall the bad stuff. I’ve had my fair share of bad stuff over the past 2 months but as I always tell my students, what’s most important is whether you get back right up. Life will always throw you lemons and it ultimately depends on whether you want to make lemonade out of it.

Despite the occasional bad stuff, I am constantly grateful for the good things in life. I wake up every morning grateful for being able to do the things I do, and I am always thankful for the opportunities that come my way. I’ve been constantly reminded about the importance of treating yourself and others with honesty and integrity. I have been reminded of the need to own your space and make the best out of it.

I don’t often post life’s updates like that but I believe as the months fly by, I am going to look back at this and appreciate that I took the time to write this down. Because sometimes as we go through changes in life, we tend to lose touch of what keeps us going from Day 1. And in my Day 1, I want to be able to remind myself to stay truthful, grateful, and optimistic. x
