It's been quite a while since I've written anything personal here. I guess I'm just not one to intently share about my life on a public platform like this, but sometimes I try to make it a point to note certain things down for memories' sake. Today is one of those times.
So.... life has been taking me to places - quite literally. In the span of 10 months since my last personal thought post, I've visited Korea, Taiwan and recently Japan. It was indeed an eye-opener especially in Japan where I got to learn more about their culture while at the same time, struggle to use chopsticks to eat rice (update: I believe there's improvement but I'd still pick fork over chopsticks anytime).
More importantly, I got to see the world with someone that I hold close to my heart. I have to say, everything was unexpected and never did I ever imagine that I would grow closer to this special someone but I'm glad we did. After so much I've been through, I really don't quite believe in loving someone 'the right way' because really, how do you determine what's right or wrong in terms of love for your other half? For me, I'm just thankful that this person has shown me love in many ways that I never knew. For the first time, I actually feel accepted and loved for who I am, and that's enough for me.
With that said, I definitely don't think of relationships as fairytales, and it's not about a princess, her prince and their happily-ever-after. The beginning of every relationship allows us to find out more about each other: personality, character, traits, quirks and the likes. With these unfortunately, also comes differing views and friction, but I've learnt (and am constantly learning) that compromising, patience and commitment is the key to a healthy relationship, and I certainly hope ours would blossom for a long, long, time.
On a lighter note, I really wanted to check in and mention that life has indeed been a lot healthier! Not emotionally but physically as well. For a start, I've had plenty of opportunities over the last few months. My social media stint has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and in my most recent campaign, I actually partnered with Grab to pick up and chat with passengers for the whole afternoon. That's a huge step for an introvert like me!
I've also been working out for a bit, and even though I'm still pretty weak, I do see improvements such as being able to finally touch my toes when I bend (FYI, I haven't been able to do it since I was a young kid). That's pretty amazing I must say! Well, with effort comes reward and I hope to plough through.
Thanks for reading my rather lengthy but pointless post! Just felt the need to word-vomit somewhere and what better place than to do it right here in my very own space? Have a wonderful week y'all x
