Seeing and having small talk with old friends you haven't seen for a while brings so many memories - it's nostalgic! Laughter & reminiscing about the good old days also brought about a lot of reflection on my part.
It's evident that each & every one of us has changed in one way or another in the past 10 years. And if there's one thing I realized while walking home today was that I've grown a lot more patient. I remember I used to get pissed of, annoyed, or worried by so many little things. Eventually, I guess with age & hopefully some wisdom, I've learned to let go of things that do not seem to matter in the long run. I won't delve into the specifics anymore, but my anger levels have definitely subsided. Not a lot of colleagues will probably know my angry state. Hehe. Further, a personal motto would probably be 'smile through the pain.' It's actually funny because for the first time in a long while, I had a big, silly smile fixed on my face while walking home thinking about this... :)
