Remembering the unforgettable and being unforgettable

I almost forgot about 3 years of my life. I hardly remembered my fierce determination and obvious persistence. In the past year since completing my 3-year MBA (Master of Business Administration), I’ve faced small and medium challenges like starting a new job in a new company, finding my place in a new group, rekindling old friendships and making new ones. I was often worried about how I would cope or if I would survive. Indeed, I had almost forgotten what I could achieve if I set my mind to it.

It was last Friday, 18th October when I attend my MBA graduation ceremony that it hit me unexpectedly as I saw my classmates, many of which became friends of mine. They will be unforgettable because they taught me more than business.

I don’t know where strength came from. It often felt like there was a pipe pumping energy into my veins at high speed. I had low points when I thought I couldn’t continue, that the demands I had of myself were too high. But I was unable to accept that state for long. Looking back, I’m grateful for those low points as they helped me refuel. I’ve learnt to appreciate the stillness instead of panicking in the silence. I’ve learnt over time not to forget to be kind to myself in the excitement – to remain unforgettable in the process. Even as I shake the hand of the Vice Chancellor, I don’t think I fully got it. Hopefully someday, I will.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

A clothing shop in North London

As an avid shopper, all these sales signs in this shop caught my eye. Unfortunately for me, we were trying to get out of London and on to the M4 to begin our trip back to Scotland in earnest aka no time to shop 😦

Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

I liked the mystery of the woman in the background

We were both attracted the grand sketch of a wild beast

I wondered if the picture was the same if I went around

Out of over 300 shots, friends didn’t deem this one of the best

But who knew what the daily post would suggest?

And that seemingly idle captions

Might end up being featured in my weekly post

From all my photo library of options?
