Can't Stop Now
It seems that the older I become, the more I want to take on in life. Perhaps there is the sense of panic that the years seem to grow shorter with each passing birthday. Or maybe it's that "bucket list" syndrome. Equally conceivably, and a bit more nobly, those primitive instincts might finally be kicking in to leave some trail of my existence for others to walk on and to remark that it was a life worth living. Although time has slowed me down a notch or two, I have always been an adventurous person who romanticizes of past ages by delving into a good history book or traveling to that far-away land. Yet, in the end, it is not the ancient ruins that stand the ultimate test of time, but the goodness that we pass on to the world, and that passing of the baton lives on in each new generation of human beings. We define our characters based on our strengths and weaknesses--in how we leverage our strengths to make the world a better place and in how we find ways to overcome our weaknesses to better empower ourselves in pursuit of this mission. Only through our individuality do we have the space to uniquely shape ourselves and to exercise our own choices in order to express our uniqueness and to further advance humanity. The more we hand over our rights to choose to others to make these choices for us, the more untested, dehumanized and hollow we shall remain.
I am now on the threshold of a new phase in my life when I somehow summon the energy and the fortitude to pursue four simultaneous professional roles (real estate agent, property manager, free speech advocate, city council candidate) when many my age are already preparing for their early retirements. I seem to believe that I am a being half my age--with a voracious appetite for new knowledge, new experiences and passionate purposes. These seem to be the best years of my life, when the knowledge and wisdom that I have gained over my existence can now be effectively translated into something worthy of sharing among the more youthful among us who face, in all likelihood, a precarious and challenging road ahead.
I am not a big fan of social media, so I come here, to this small and discrete website, my private little refuge that still gives me an outward channel to communicate both personally and professionally, to introduce you to who I am. Although I am somewhat modest and rather private, for those of you who wish to learn more about me, consider delving more deeply into this website (of which some areas must remain private for the time being), or connect with me via LinkedIn and Facebook using the social media links in the footer.
*** Apologies for being unable to keep up with mobile optimization as the site frequently changes and I am juggling quite a few endeavors right now. The mobile experience shall improve over time. Meanwhile, you might want to dust off that old tablet or laptop to better enjoy this site.
