It is the time of the year when we have to take stock of how time has slipped away and how we intend to journey onward. - What are you putting off, because you "can't seem to find the time?"
- What did you agree to that you immediately regretted?
- What have you done that you previously didn't think you could do?
- What should you have seen coming?
- When did you feel that you were about to draw the line, but then you actually let it go past that?
- What did you talk yourself into thinking that you had changed, although nothing had actually changed?
- What have you finally had it with - where you're no longer going to invest your energy, and now you're going to just let it go?
- Among the people closest to you, what do you really want to know that you haven't found out yet?
- What seems to be working out "so far"?
- What are you currently "putting up with"?
- Are you where you wound up, or are you where you want to be?
- What's worth fighting for?
- What do you owe yourself?
- What are you tired of people telling you?
- What's the next thing you're going to change?
- Who do you miss?
- What 3 things will you have to do to ensure that the rest of the next 12 months will be the best year of your life?
We have heard and shared about the famous story of Johnny the Bagger, a 19-year old young man with Down Syndrome, who never failed to touch the hearts of his customers by putting simple positive quote-of-the-day into their shopping bags. And in Singapore, we have, whom I call the Tissue Auntie, who is doing the exact same thing - uplifting the spirits of her customers, by offering her self-made green apples of blessings fashioned out of balloons and leaves. Yes, Service needs not be something phenomenal. It just has to come straight from the heart and leaving behind your own personal signature.
It has been a fun week with the kids of Loyang Secondary School! Many of them will be moving on to a different phase of their lives and I wish them all the best in whatever they have decided to pursue!
My keeper :)
Thank God it's Friday! Have a great weekend, peeps!
My mum says I look like a grown-up now. Puppy or grown-up, I still need tender loving care. Would you give me some?
