I am also considered brave to be 'open' about what I think in social media. My thoughts on religion and the likes can be, almost blasphemous.
However, because I am Malaysian, of both Malay and Chinese heritage, I understand the meaning of tolerance deeper than most.
I am also brave on wearing yoga leggings and sports bra for yoga selfies.
Well, consider this, if my body had not changed over the years, I don't think I would be brave to do this now.
Even now, I still have issues with my body. At 35, I am slowly defeated by gravity.
And at 35, I still do wonder what the hell is it that I am actually good at. Most of the things I did, had been more of a 'throw me in and see if I come out in one piece' kind of thing.
The free time that I am reluctantly having, gave me a lot of time to think.
The conclusion is this, I am pretty good at insisting on doing what makes me happy.
Considering that so many people are defeated by the needs that they abandon their happiness, that is a skill on its own.
I will (hopefully) be blogging come new year's (haven't you heard, blogging is kind of... Dead). Until then, keep afloat and someday you will fly.
