I believe that life is more than building my bank account. I do not like the idea of spending most part of my life making money only because life is more than that. To me, life is about collecting experiences, making money is just one of these experiences. That means, I walk the earth to test out new activities that will enrich my life.
Therefore, I am always willing to test out new activities. Riding a scooter in a foreign country, lighting fireworks, visiting a Kelong etc. Even in business wise, I am also treating it like new activity. The business is going through a new phase which is new to me.
Having said all these about experiences, the other important experience that I treasure is relationship with people. Every interaction provides me with different experiences, every argument provides me with different ways of handling issues, every reconciliation provides me with different satisfactions.
I enjoy interacting with friends not to talk about business only. I enjoy talking about other things other than the next biggest opportunities. I enjoy just hanging out and doing thing we love together.
Accept the spontaneous in life. You get to experience different range of experience. Things do not always go as plan, but as you accept the detour, you’ll experience life differently.
When my friend and me were going off after our singing class last week, it was raining so heavily that we couldn’t go anywhere but to stay in the school. It so happened that we met other friends there. The rain totally threw our individual’s plan off, but we accept the detour and start to have fun at the small band area. We sang, strummed the guitar and played the piano.
We threw aside what we planned to do, but just enjoy each other’s company in spontaneity. Life is not just about having a fat bank account, but enjoying each other’s presence in the moment too.
Are you enjoying the moment?
