June. A significant month. Representation. More than just birthdays (mine, my partner's).
This time a year ago, I returned home to Singapore from a 3 year stint in Melbourne, Australia. I came back a tired, weary and jaded individual, despite only being 24 years of age then.
So much has changed since then. I'm so grateful and thankful for that. I used to think that Singapore would be my end point, that my time overseas was up. Somewhere in the first quarter of 2017, I realised otherwise.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.
The point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
I'm really looking forward to the days ahead.
