 BEFORE :  Dilly dally, cruising through life, not doing stupid YOLO stuff that will risk my life but just chilling, doing what I what, at my own comfort, slow, lepak pace, thinking, I still have time.  AWAKENING : which everyone gets in life, just sooner or later, is my closest and bestest friend, my mom, passed away, and I did not get a chance to say I'm sorry I was not able to give her a comfortable life before she passed, and didn't get a chance to make amends, apologies to her and tell her that I really love her very much at her death bed, as the week before, we had a major argument, it was uncalled for, but I was extremely rude to her for petty things which, reflecting now,I'm also at fault with.  My mental and physical health took a major toll after that and I just continued with life without any purpose as I don't see any reason to work hard for anything as my mom was the hardest worker I've ever met and also very dilligent at following very cumbersome Taoist practices and rituals, for the family sake, so the family get to live a blessed life yet she lived such a hard life!  I attended one of Jason's talk at SCAPE, and couple of years after my mom's passing and the starting introductory video, Jason's story and the YOLT movement gave me an awakening and stark reminder that I really need to review what I really want in life and projected my last five years of how I have been living my life into the future and fast forwarded to my last day on earth, is that how I want to live my life and what would be my regrets, my would have, could have and should have...  AFTER : Be grateful with what I have, was the message I can still remember to this date and it made me appreciate the fact that I still have my dad and he was the last chance I have to make, to fulfill all the would have, could have and should have promises which I could not give my mom, and that Jason story reminded me that still have a chance to do, something which I don't know why I forgotten, perhaps I was dwelling too much in my own self pity, pain and sorrow of my mom's passing, that I totally forgotten the living people around me whom I also love.  So within the next couple of months, even though I still didn't know what I wanted to do but somehow, it lead to me quitting my job as I find that the negative work environment is rubbing off on me and I'm bringing the negative energy back home.  Then I started my own business, as I always wanted to do so when I was younger but as usual, we go through life on autopilot, and we get told to be realistic from our network of family and friends, at their best efforts to protect us, based on their experiences (which is at no fault of theirs as they grew up in a different environment) , they tell us to complete our studies, find a good job, get married and at least one boy and girl child and we are set for life, business is risky and not for us..bla bla bla.. So much so that it became the gospel truth, and we forgotten what we dream of becoming when we was younger.  So I wanted to take this opportunity to appreciate and thank Jason for starting the YOLT movement and sharing your stories and inspiring me to fulfill my childhood dream of owning a business.  I had the pleasure and opportunity to catch up with Jason recently before he leaves for Cambodia to grow the YOLT movement there and got a inspiration refresher again and now, at 2.25am,typing this as I am looking to rediscover my why for my business, my value and mission statement for my company perhaps, so I can reach out and connect with more people so I can connect more intimately to business owners who shares the same values as me and also to other accountants to join my team to serve a purpose beyond ourself so I can build a more purposeful accounting business instead of purely just making a sale for profits.  I cannot thank you enough Jason! Thank you very very much and I wish you, sincerely, all the best for your YOLT movement in Cambodia that you reach your one million life changed goal sooner rather than later!
