Farewell 2021, Thank You!
Hey all, how's everyone enjoying the year end and Christmas celebration? I hope all of you are having relaxing and wonderful moment with your loves one. While continuing to read the story below, I would like you to spend a few second to reflect your year and think about this - 'What Are You Most Grateful For in 2021?' :)
A few year ago I was very stressed at work due to the heavy workloads and some politics in the office. One evening when I was leaving the office and my colleague tapped my shoulder, "Hey Angeline, let's walk to the MRT (subway) station together. You look stressed and tired, are you okay?" I should be grateful that she asked me but I just wanted to vent my rage to someone. I started to complained about what had happened to me for the past few months at work. When I finished, she smiled to me and said "Girl, I understand your frustration but I want you to know that we are all still very lucky to have a job, ok? :) While we are finding a solution a to fix whatever problem it is. always remember to count your blessing everyday and things will get better."
"Count your blessing" - This phrase keeps popping out in my mind that evening. While I was swimming that night, I looked up and saw the beautiful moon up on the sky. I smiled and I understood what my friend told me. I was indeed blessed to be able to enjoy such as beautiful view after a long day of work. From then on, I learned what does being grateful means in my life. When I'm being grateful, I am being more grateful to every single things in my life. When I am being grateful, I am also becoming more positive.
In the year of 2021, I am especially thankful to the opportunity that ASHOKA Singapore & Malaysia that I was chosen to be part of DIWA (Deepening Impact Women Activator) program where I was able to meet many amazing women social entrepreneurs. Apart from that, I am thankful to many of my friends who have been supporting SheASK hence our workshops and events happened! :) Of course, I'm always grateful that I can still spend time with my family and all the natural resources that we are using everyday.
