My Heart Loves the View

It’s almost inconceivable that four years could whiz by in a flash. I recall the first day of school, seeing people wear the shirt with the question “Why am I in NTU?” printed on the front. Standing amidst unfamiliar faces, in an unfamiliar surrounding, it was precisely what I thought. The answer to the question was written at the back of their shirts: Because God put me here.

Four years on—I still live by it.

These four years have changed me—I’m probably not the same person I used to be. The winds and storms of life have weathered my soul, but it hasn’t quelled my enthusiasm for life. If anything, this hardy soul is brimming with energy, ready to embark on this adventure!

The year, thus far, has been extraordinarily momentous. I’ve been blessed with opportunities, experiences and people that have made an immense impact in my life. And for these, I’m eternally grateful.

P.S. This year, I’ve learnt that a smile can bring you so much (:

As I stand at ground zero—gazing back at my past, and admiring my future—my heart loves the view.

Footprints in my Heart

The last thing you said to me when I saw you was “Thank You”. I couldn’t see your smile anymore, but I knew that you were trying hard to. I didn’t know what to say. All I could do was hold your hand and say a prayer.

You have fought the good fight, and touched countless lives in the process.

You will be dearly missed, Mani. Thank you for leaving your footprints in my heart.

May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your field. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
