Looking to the Future

Just came back from dinner with an ex-colleague. He entered the company at the same time as me, and was recently made redundant by his team. Instead of feeling all sad about it, he really took the positive attitude to the next level. He's already been to three or four interviews around the City, and now have planned on returning to HK for more interviews or even starting a business.

We had a really meaningful conversation tonight, talking about our aspirations and why we're doing what we are doing. Quite interesting is that he asked me, "So why have you decided to throw everything away and start all over here in London?" I never really thought about it. Whenever friends or family asked me that question, I dodged it by saying that it was my only choice as there were no jobs waiting for me back in Toronto. I suppose if I really wanted to, I would have found a job too. So what's the true reason I'm here in London?

The truth is, I have no idea. I think part of the reason why I'm still here is to find out why I'm here in the first place.

I wish my friend all the best in his future endeavors..
