As I look back at 2011, it had very high highs and very low lows. My time at Veda was filled with immense challenges that were richly rewarding. I would have it no other way. The thing I am most proud of is to see the development of the people that I am responsible for in my team. To see each of them achieve their goals was very fulfilling. Spending more than 40 hours a week with “my crew” – they don’t just work with me/for me – they are a second family to me. It’s been 18 months for me at Veda, and to look back on Day 1 to the present, so many things have changed and more importantly the impact of what our Team does for the organisation has been seen. Thanks Guys.
On a personal note it’s been a roller coaster last 6 months. Cherish life. Honour death. In life, you take the good with the bad, the laughter with the sorrows, and the smiles with the tears. The most important thing is to move forward and think positively. Easier said than done, but I always think to myself that there are millions of people all over the world who are in a worse predicament than I am in – people not having basic food and shelter and having a right to live. No matter what happens to me, I will always feel that I am quite lucky to have been given the opportunity to be who I am and to have done what I have done. What this has taught me is that there’s no time to think about what might have been and ponder the “What-if’s” of the world. It’s all about looking ahead and working on what will be. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel and being and feeling happy in work and play is what it’s all about. Goodbye 2011. Hello 2012.
