The harder you slam a ball into the ground, the higher it bounces back up… A divorce, a breakup, losing a job, or just feeling seriously down can ground you, rough you up a bit, leave calluses on your feet and grit under your finger nails. But more than that, it leaves you wiser and stronger next time… Life is about experiencing opposites isn’t it? - Laurel House
Every once in a while, life gets me down and I'll feel as though I can't bounce back from the bottomless pit. It's then I try to remember the Chinese saying, "开心也是一天，不开心也是一天，为何不开心的过一天呢?" (My translation: Whether you are happy or unhappy, you still have to live that same day, why not choose to live happy?)
As I sit in the World's Number 1 airport (if not by some poll, then at least by my standards), or Singapore's Changi Airport, I am feeling a little sad to be leaving everything familiar behind and returning to my other reality.
I haven't been updating this space because my time in Singapore has just been so fulfilling meeting my friends, spending time hanging out with my family. Even just lazing in front of the TV and being in the Singapore heat/rain is a luxury I did not appreciate until now.
So friends (and obviously family) whom I've extended my invitations to, please come and visit me (and Bella) in the land of cheap shopping and good food! I will see you on the side, or when I'm back again. :)
