On Being Happy.

Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true. – Leon-Joseph Cardinal Suenens 

Choose to be happy.

I know, it’s a lot harder than it seems sometimes.

After being back here in Singapore for almost 6 months, I must say a large part of it was spend in the dark, moody and depressed states.

Coming to terms with reality is always a harsh experience.

But through that experience, there’s always a silver lining.

The moment where you become fully honest with yourself and your surroundings, and the subsequent decision to then act to turn things around to where you want your life to be.

It’s not easy by any means, but it’s possible and that’s all we need.

Doing decathlon back here in Singapore has been a huge struggle with work commitments and limitations to training facilities (and the weather). But I realised that I’ve always tried to get the work aspects of my life right, and indeed I have actually made big progress towards that in the last 6 months.

Yes it came at an expense of other areas in my life, but such is the price you must be prepared to pay to get to where you want to be.

So stay the course, have faith and most of all, enjoy the ride.
