They say that learning is a lifelong journey for many things.

For me, that includes believing and trusting another person with major undertakings of my life.

By the trick of circumstances, I grew up to be an independent, self reliant and autonomous person. It helped me to progress fast on my own.

Finally switching to a slower mode of letting someone else do what I want to achieve for me, takes determination and willpower too. Because the temptation to stop waiting and being patient, and just do it myself, is always there. Patience and faith takes practice.

Too bad I live in the city. If I live by the ocean, then I would go sit at the beach and watch the sunset to exercise patience. I miss Venice Beach in Los Angeles. The Santa Monica pier is a bit too cold for me to stay for hours although it is more accessible.


Yvonne Foong

As a child, Yvonne Foong dreamed of growing up to help others. To achieve her ambition, she began studying to become a psychologist. But things changed when tumours were discovered in her body at the age of sixteen. She was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 2 -- a genetic illness with no cure. Fighting for survival, Yvonne turned to fundraising and embarked on a medical odyssey to the United States. Her experiences since then have transformed her into a motivational speaker; inspiring hope, faith and strength. Yvonne is currently working to establish a humanitarian foundation that provides NF patients in Malaysia with financial and logistical support. Visit Works of Gratitude to learn more.
