friends who matter


Today I am simply grateful: –

for friends who tolerate me,

for friends who forgive my blunders,

for friends who confide in me,

for friends who give me their spaces,

for friends who open up and invite me in,

for friends who compete with me,

for friends who feel safe enough to stir up trouble and conflict,

for friends who share their contacts and knowledge with me,

for friends who continue to encourage me,

for friends who go to the dark side with me,

for friends who call me Auntie Bear Bear,

for friends who love me for me….

We all have friends like these, even if only one or two. I am blessed because I can count more than 10 of these friends…

So, today, I will not whine, but simply be thankful.

Thank you my friends, you know who you are.

Good night, world.

about Noch Noch

Enoch Li, (pen name: Noch Noch) was born and raised in Hong Kong and Australia. She has also studied / worked / lived in the US, France, UK, Japan, The Netherlands, China, and has travelled to more than 40 countries. She loves travelling and her curiosity in foreign cultures and languages has led her to enjoy her life as an international executive in the banking & finance industry. However, she was forced to take time off work in 2010 due to her illnesses and after spending time in recovery, cooking, practising Chinese calligraphy, reading and writing – in short, learning to take care of herself and letting out the residual work stress, she has transitioned into a Social Entrepreneur and founded BEARAPY to help corporates make workplaces mentally healthy, and support executives to become more resilient.
