Goodbye 2014 and Hello 2015!

Happy New Years to all and have a good holiday!

Its time to look back on what 2014 has brought and head toward a successful 2015. Thank you to all my friends and family who stood by me in the good and bad times.

Its also time to announce the closure of a chapter and the start of a new one; I will be moving back to California at the end of January. Its been a fun two and half years in Hong Kong but now is the right time. When you live out on your own and have been through so many highs and lows, it makes you think what are the most important things in life… and like the old story about the professor teaching his students what life is about and made popular on the internet, its time to focus on my golf balls. If you haven’t read the story, its worth a read here.

Its high time that I look toward getting my golf balls closer to my life and thus embark on another new journey, this time, at home close to where my family is.

Like the story, I too, once worried about the little things; the sands. My life became filled with worries, emotional rollercoasters and people who you shouldn’t have in your life. Experience and enduring pain helps you get pass that and learn from your mistakes… and made a better person. I don’t want to get too philosophical in this post but I advise people to overlook the small stuff and take care of the more important big stuff: friends, family, your health and following your dream.

My dream was always to do something out of the ordinary, to live on my own in a different country and experience all kinds of “moments” that can be cherished, as you grow older. I was never into having tons of material things, life was more about a journey to see and feel. As an ENFP, I viewed life as a big puzzle that you need to figure out how to put together, piece-by-piece. Along the way, I gained lifelong friends, valuable experience, self-discovery and self-reliance. I had broken hearts, broke some, learned to cook, sold a company, traveled to bunch of countries, rekindle old friendships, witness the growth of others, mentored young entrepreneurs and fell in love with the world again.

2015, I hope you will be as a-ma-zing as 2014 has been.

See you next year.
JM
