:: Sometimes It's About Going That Extra Mile ::

We were off air when Seb asked me about going that extra mile.
"Don't you think it is rather tiring," he enquired.
I pondered for a couple of seconds, and said,
"I think it is really about your passion in what you do."
"and it is also about how much you want to touch the lives of those that you are able to," I added.
That made quite a lot of sense to me.
I mean, I made a resolve during my secondary school days to be a teacher.
Mr Sim Kok Heng was my form teacher, and he was my major source of inspiration
While everything else was going downhill, what would be the darkest years of my life.
While I do rant "nothing really matters" and the like,
If there was something crucial in my power to affect, and influence, why not?
This notion of mine changed when I concluded that years of repetitive teaching
Wasn't my cup of tea. (and echester's latest posting confirmed it, I suppose.)
In any case, there's always an opportunity to touch a life, and pay it forward.
I was given a chance to demonstrate what I preached at the later part of the evening.
I was really tired, after doing three sets of the 45min:to-failure workout.
But something inside told me that it would make a difference.
And so I went; I cheered and waved.
And he was Happy.
Ultimately, I still subscribe to the idea that life is so insignificant that everything precious
Would become so miniscule and eventually forgotten in the large span of the lifetime of the universe.
But then again, if this moment is like a spark that conflagrates into an ephemeral glory,
Why not?
Since nothing really matters anyway, do what matters to those that matter.
The best is yet to be!
I'm so exciting about touching yet another life tonight.
In an hour's time, in fact.
Wish me luck!
