We all wanted to be a better version of ourselves. On my part, I'm not aiming to be perfect. I lived most of my life trying and it never worked for me. It just got... well frustrating (what else, haha). If you think about it, the more we force ourselves to meet the standards of other people, to have them look at us the way we want them to, the more disappointed we get.
I give up on being a perfectionist because I wanted to open myself up to the idea of personal growth without sacrificing excellence. Everyday, I just consciously struggle to be a better person. More patience, more understanding, more kindness and humility - a few of the things I always pray for.
Usually, when things don't go my way, I would feel defeated. These past few days, I have reasons to feel so down - a major company raket was cancelled, I had to refund around P10,000 worth of out of stock Asian Fashion shoes and apparels, the increasing number of bogus buyers shopping in F-STOP lately, the stress and challenges of a project we're cooking up, plus life, family and personal feats. It's valid to be upset (right?). But I'm happy that I didn't let it get to me. I learned to let go and stayed composed instead of usually being sooo stressed out.
God is really helping me take that step to becoming a better version of me. I'd definitely keep on walking forward. As of now, I stay positive! Expect loads of freebies for my blog anniversary giveaway this April, a surprise event you wouldn't want to miss and (hopefully) regular blog posts from me, haha.
Before I leave, one question: What has changed in you that made you feel like you've become a better person this year?
