Walk away

A lot has happened in the past two months, and I’ve learned a great deal of what I want out of life. Not saying that I’m not an ambitious person, because I think if you were to speak to any of my friends, all of them would say I am a very ambitious person, but I think that sort of ambition needed a little more maturity and a little more wisdom. I’m still not there yet, but I’m a lot closer to that sort of state than ever before.

One of the main events that happened recently is that I finally moved out.

After many years of moaning, groaning, and just overall complaining about how much I hate the commute, how much I hate the suburbs, I finally went and did it. I moved downtown. Honestly, my overall happiness has improved immensely in the past few weeks. There were a lot of factors that contributed to why and when I moved out, but I won’t delve too deeply into that here. It does, however, relate back to knowing when to walk away.

I found out that it takes a lot of courage to move forward with your life. We’re all so accustomed to a certain way of life, a certain way of every day, that sometimes we forget that we will never achieve the greatness we deserve unless we actually take a step forward.

Sometimes it takes a really long time to be sure of a decision… But hey, high risk, high reward, right? None of us will get anywhere in life unless we change our perceptions and we change our mindsets.

  • It always surprises people when I tell them that even though I was born in Hong Kong, I've never actually been back to the city. But I've always had an affinity to the city because of all the Asian entertainment I consume. And as someone who tries to stay up-to-date on global affairs, the Hong Kong protests was something that I followed closely over the summer.⁣⁣

I wasn't able to attend Toronto's supporting protest in its entirety, so this photo is mostly for memory's sake. It's good to see people in Canada supporting people in Hong Kong, but I do wish the crowd was larger. I wish more young Canadians would take action in what they believe in. Your world won't change if just complain about it to your friends. Apathy is the most dangerous weapon to democracy.⁣⁣

I'll end this photo caption with this quote from Albert Einstein:⁣

  • Throwback to last summer when I had longer hair and I was about 10 lbs heavier... Actually, that's not true. I went without weighing myself for over a year, so I have no idea how much I weigh here. 😂 But isn't Oslo beautiful? This is by their historical area, where their main marina is located. 🇳🇴
