Freedom, Power, Love

Freedom isn’t choosing to do whatever pleases us at the expense of others. It is to be anchored in an unshakeable truth and in our values, allowing grace to tear away the prisons we have built for ourselves, made from choices of fear and past hurts that disempower us. Power isn’t defined by our ability to…

Choosing life over mere existence

We were each born with a unique message for the world. But along the way, like a game of broken telephone, we lose our message and our identity. We succumb to the pressures of the world and conform to the labels given us. We start to settle for less. And after some time of living a double…

Going crazy at Team SportSG Night 2017

This is a belated post, but as they say it’s better late than never. 🙂 To be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect from our company’s Dinner & Dance. Being tied down with sports events and campaign work the last few months, thinking about what to dress up as for the D&D was…

Dropping the act to find ourselves

Let’s not lie to ourselves. We live in a world that opposes authentic living, and one that regularly asks questions of the true value of authenticity. If living authentically was that easy, everyone would be doing it. Yet we constantly see the opposite at work in our daily lives. We work in workplaces that tell us…

We are called to be real, not perfect

I once held the mistaken belief that I had to strive to be the best in everything before I am able to receive love, or be seen as likeable. I bought into the idea that my life must be as flawless as possible – without stain or blemish, in order for those around me to accept me….

Get ready to rock, ruck, and rumble

Okay, so I’m not exactly a Rugger. Those who know me well enough would know that I am a footballer through and through. The only experience I had with rugby was from a session of Touch (Rugby) at the OCBC Arena in one of our team building sessions last year, conducted by Sport Singapore’s Leadership…

Love and freedom

Sitting with a wounded lion: Mastering emotions

“To be free is to know who we are, with all that is beautiful, all the brokenness in us; it is to love our own values, to embrace them, and to develop them; it is to be anchored in a vision and a truth but also to be open to others and, so, to change.”…

Filming of teaser for Get Active @ Sentosa

If there is one thing this past week has taught me, it is that resourcefulness is not simply a a matter of knowing and using what you have at your disposal, but an exercise of your will to make things happen when you know you have to deliver regardless of resources. Oh, and of how stereotypes can be…

Zlatan’s potential ban could be a blessing for United

The Football Association has charged Manchester United’s ace Zlatan Ibrahimovic for violent conduct following an alleged elbow on Bournemouth AFC defender Tyrone Mings as tempers boiled over in a physical match on the weekend, in which United were frustrated to a 1-1 draw with the bottom side of the Premier League. This means Zlatan could very well serve…
