2022: What Have You Achieved This Year?

 2022: What Have You Achieved This Year? What a year.  Was it memorable? No.  Was it monumental? Also no. Did I get to do much traveling? Not really. Did I advance in my career? Also no. Honestly, 2022 is a quite stressful & frustrating year for me, especially in terms of work. When you are busy, stressed, and anxious all the time, time just flies past in a quick blur. Like "What the hell happened? where did all my time go?" Like "I'm getting older but what have I achieved?" And then I would start to compare myself with things I see on social media. Of people posting their life's highlights of career advancement, exotic travels, life milestones of getting married, having kids etc.  When I look at my year from this perspective, it's really pretty bleak. But if I changed my perspective, it's actually not so bad.  1. Grateful for my (physical) health Despite getting covid (like finally wohoooo!), more MCs than usual, and lots of aches here and there

I might have changed my mind after I found this beautiful hidden gem. Honestly, it really is challenging to find a place that ticks all the boxes for an ideal introvert's getaway in a touristy place like Cameron Highlands. With lots of research, you can and for me, that place is Sunlight Suite . Going on a long weekend, I already mentally prepared myself for the infamous non-moving weekend traffic jam in Cameron Highlands.  "Going to Cameron on a long weekend?! You crazy ahh?!" my friend said.  But to my surprise, the traffic was pretty smooth. It also helps that I departed quite late from KL (3pm-ish) via Tapah route and reached Sunlight Suite around 7pm.  Little English Cottage In The Tropics Moonlight Bungalow Picture credit to https://www.sunlightsuite.com/moonlight-bungalow/   Sunlight S

Feeling Pretty Blah? You Could Be Languishing Image: Unsplash/ Camila Quintero Been feeling pretty blah lately. Like in a rut, generally feeling like "I just have to get through this week".  yeah, but get through to where? There is nothing to look forward to. Week after week, month after month, it's the same.  Am I depressed or just feeling blah? Naturally, I scoured the net looking for answers and came across  HALT , which stands for: H ungry, A ngry, L onely or T ired, a quick way to assess your feelings. Does it help to identify why am I feeling this way? Nope. Still feeling blah.  Like this person, Sagarika Sinha, an avid runner, who suddenly lost interest in running. “I'm doing okay.
