Doing Things That Makes Me Happy

I have always believed that mantra. That is why I try my best to do things that makes me happy even if other people don’t understand why. I don’t have to make them understand but all I want is for people to have an open mind why others do the things that they do, especially when running after a dream.

I haven’t always have it easy. I have to work hard for something. I don’t get stuff easy in life. It is always a struggle. Sometimes, I honestly want to give up. However, I think about the reason why I have begun in the first place – it’s because, I had a dream, and I am still dreaming up to now.

Part of doing the things that makes me happy is also sacrificing some time spent for nonsense stuff like going to the malls, socializing, etc. I don’t want to shortchange my happiness by stealing few moments out of them. That is why, my weekends are always booked to the brim with activities that calms my nerves, quiets my mind, and soothes my soul.

Right now, I have been busy with many things like my arts, my blogging, and my entrepreneurial goal. I have some frustrations too but the impetus to succeed, and to enjoy life now keeps me going. I just want to chase my dreams while I can because tomorrow may be too late. If I can do it now, why not? So, I’ll be doing things that makes me happy. And if I flood my blogs, and my social media channels with stuff that feeds my soul, so be it. 🙂

Taking the Opportunity

They said, “Opportunity knocks only once.” In my case, it had knocked many times before but I kept mum about opening the door. I am either scared or I just don’t have faith as big as a mountain. Either way, I have let many opportunities pass only to regret later in my life.

There are opportunities that I have gladly accepted but I stirred my boat wrongly. I didn’t give much thought about them and was half-heartedly committing only because they became more of an obligation than something I could enjoy with.

I even prayed for opportunities to come my way. I answered some but then again, I was not putting my effort. I was rushing. I was impatient. I wanted to see results right away.

This time, the opportunity came when I least expected it. My friend actually approached me to review the products she is offering because I am a blogger and I do product reviews as well. So I said yes. Then I asked questions about the products, she gave me information about them and next thing I know it, I am a part of her team. Yes. It was a lengthy conversation about beauty and skin care products that got me hooked and I am glad that I did.

The thing is, I am a very skeptical person. I am very analytical, and I must understand every detail of something before I can put my personal stamp on it. In this case, I have heard of the brand before. I was still young when I heard of it. And because then, the brand seemed so elusive and exclusive, I didn’t give much thought about it. Until I became a part of the same brand I tried avoiding. Again, I am glad I signed up. I am still learning the ropes because I am just 3 weeks old in the company but I know one day, I can become a leader here. I would love that!

You see, opportunities like this one comes rarely in your lifetime. You either let it pass or you grab it by the horns. I have let this pass before and it came back to me unexpectedly. I did pray for God’s guidance and providence to lead me to a good opportunity where I can see myself, my family, my friends, and my new found teammates grow. And if there’s one thing I have learned about this whole process is to take the opportunities that come your ways as blessings. Not everyone has been given that honor to respond to a calling, no matter what that is.

It’s too early to say what will happen. I am just being very hopeful and positive. I feel I deserve this break after what I have been through. I am also praying that I will continue to enjoy this new endeavor for a long, long time.

Thanks to Nu Skin for giving me something to hope for. I pray that all my dreams will come true with your help.

The road to success is still long, and far. But I know someday, I will surely get there.
