Hi! I’m Greta Watson, the writer and founder of The Up-Turn. Call me Celes please! If you are passionate about living your best life, then you are at the right place.
I grew up pursuing staunch academic and financial goals — to get good grades and get a great job with a good pay. This was the purpose I was inculcated since young; this was the life path that was repeatedly drummed into me in school. When I was in university, I studied in NUS Business School (one of the top business schools in Asia), was a Dean’s Lister and the top marketing student, and would eventually secure a prestigious job in a Fortune 100 company before graduation.
However, as I started to ask questions and become more conscious as a human being, I realized that many of the things that I was taught were nothing but false purposes. There is much more to life than just getting good grades, earning a lot of money, or being wrapped up in self-involved pursuits. When I asked myself what’s the most meaningful thing I could do in my life, I realized that the heart of the human soul is consciousness, and the best thing I could do in my life to raise my consciousness and help others grow in consciousness.
The Up-Turn has been my full-time job since I started in Dec 2008. While PE is my full-time career, it is more than just that to me: it is my life, blood and purpose. This is what I plan to do till the day I die.
I’d like to thank you for being here, reading the blog, and making a difference in my life. I look forward to walking through life’s journey together with you!
