Wisdom from Oogway

It feels so strange, the chapter ends abruptly and yet I have spent so many hours, days and months going through it.

The new chapter that I am going to explore will be even more challenging and I am more concern in adapting to the changed environment. I feared change. I was very afraid of the unknown. I have murdered millions of brain-cells trying to figure out the future. To lessen the feeling of being lost in my vision to the future. In other words, preventing change.

I was watching Kungfu Panda on TV once night and the Master Oogway enlightened me. It's such a joke to admit that it takes a turtle to show me the wisdom in life.

It says "You are too concerned with what was and what will be. There's a saying: Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Today is a Gift. That's why it is called the Present".

All of a sudden, I understand what I need to do. I need to "Believe".
To believe in the flow of life itself, to believe that every event, every decision, every step I make... is meant to be. There will be no right or wrong because the future is a mystery. There are also no accidents in life as every outcome is the reflection of our action. This is the cycle in our life. A cycle that will be filled with joy and satisfaction if we believe in it. Most importantly, believing in ourself. Believing in our decisions and choices, believing in our actions...

Especially when opportunity is now knocking loudly at my door, eager to be welcomed into my life! There's just no time to worry so much about whatever... as I've mentioned before, opportunity just doesn't knock twice!

Sucha a wise turtle! I am now awaiting for another new chapter to unfold and anticipating the challenges & excitement in my newly chosen journey in life... jia you!!
