I heard this quote a few years back: "There's no winter lasts forever, no Spring skips its turn". It does seem that no matter what happens, life goes on, for the better or worse. Time waits for no one, which is why we are now in year 2022.
I was born in a middle-class family, we were neither rich nor poor. We've always have enough. I have been growing up by having loving parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins and friends all around me. Later in life when I am so-called a grown up, I have in hand a countless numbers of partners and mentors. I didn't know it was not the thing that everyone could be so lucky to have.

Guess what? This is my 100th post in this blog - believe it or not, it's been kind of a journey that I have been though.

I don't want self-help speeches, I don't listen to TED Talks, I don't have so many influencers in my life.
