I’m at a few different crossroads, so I wanted to take some time to reflect and share with my hivemind.
People say they underestimate what they can do in ten years, and overestimate what they can do in 1 year.
What I think it means to have a meaningful milestone is to be even more yourself. To continue letting originality, vulnerabilities, and imperfections to crack obsolete traditions for good.And thus I begin, hiking into my life. To the time when I was a 9 year-old little girl who didn’t speak English in boarding schools. I hoped that by my own perspective, I could bridge my two cultures to create something hopefully meaningful.
And thus I began trying to bring ideas together – communications, anthropology, ethics, culture – fabrics that led me to the me now.
A personal milestone is to continue putting myself in uncomfortable situations and to unconditionally love friends, mentees, and my family. Trusting the beauty of life, believing in my friends, and my vision so the ability to wonder, sense, create, to be different, and to be myself, is fully explored.
I’m a bit dazed, clumsy, and not as prim and proper as I should be. I think that’s okay. In a year, I don’t know where I’ll be. At the very least, I hope to be more me, in my spiritual journey of a misfit inflecting from one cadence to the next.
