I am back from Japan. After a 15 days of crazy fun, intense learning and emotional roller coaster.
Before I launch into my long story, which I probably will withhold till May, I shall just quickly pen down what I learnt - something that didn't strike me till now.
I am humbled through my Japan trip. By listening to people's stories. Everyone has been through rough patches, like really rough patches. Everyone has been through the worst in their life. While I will not compare whose is worse, I can just say, I have learnt a lot about life, about my friends around, through listening to their stories. And through this, I am humbled. Awed by the complexity of life. A four letter word that presents so much to a human, and to each, his own. Kudos to everyone who has mustered the courage to walk through their downs, kudos to those who didn't have the courage but still walked through nonetheless. Thanks for your sharing, that I have gotten to learn a little more.
Meanwhile, cheers to great friendship formed during the conference!
