Hey! Giang here, I am so glad we have the opportunity to connect today!
If you are something like me, you’ve been probably also on your way to a life-time change into meaning!
MY STORY AND “FINDING THE BETTER WAY”
My name – Giang, in Vietnamese, means a river. My parents did a good choice because it reflects very much who I am. I am 38 years old.
When my mother passed away eight years ago, my whole world view turned upside down. During several years, I was in search of the “Why” of our life on earth. I started living more mindfully, into the here and the now... I am a fan of Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community, zazen and Japanese fine forms of finding peace of mind…
However, in parallel with this secret search for meaning, I led a life of any ordinary person, working in a job to earn my income in a pharmaceutical company.
Work was interesting at the beginning. But after several years, I started to be in a middle career crisis. Work was stressful. Together with taking care of my two kids most of the time alone, I got extremely tired… That was how, in my late 30’s: I got burned-out…
Wasn’t feeling good enough to be there for my children. Lack of energy for a move in career. I felt hopeless and completely stuck. The question that haunted me was: Who will be the person I am in 5 years?
It became stronger and stronger in me the belief that we are all here for a strong purpose. And spending our days doing what we don’t love is the last thing we should do to ourselves. Today I’ve made a change, because I want to teach my kids by example that realizing one’s dream is the most beautiful thing in life.
I am here should you need me for any support in this journey, the great journey that you just put the first step.
Someone said, “an imperfect action is better than a perfect inaction”, right? And yes, a first step can lead you very far. So congratulations for joining our community, courage, and success on your path!
