I was feeling rather sentimental a few nights ago, perhaps it was because I have reached another milestone…. It was my birthday, another number to that ever increasing number, a number that you don’t quite keep track after a while. Wouldn’t you agree?
And so, I decided to log on to my Zewt e-mail account
and went through a lot of the mails that I used to receive and the
communications that I had with the readers of this blog, days when there used
to be so many of them :)
It was very surreal to read through some of those mails from readers who asked me so many questions, ranging from where I got my inspiration to write, advice and well wishes during a time when I was diagnosed with a kidney condition, and most of all, questions about career from people who just graduated from university seeking a pointer or two about whether they should join the corporate world.
Time wise… most of those mails were almost a decade ago, some even longer. I wonder how these people are, whether my 2-cent worth of consult to them (if I can call that a consult) did lead them to where they wanted to go, and whether they have achieved greatness and did well in their respective career.
And as such, I decided to write to a few of them with the email thread that I had. To my surprise, some of them have replied!
I have discovered through the years that human connection is one of the most fulfilling experience ever. Therefore, I am excited to connect to people who wrote to me literally… a decade ago.
Are you one of them?
