The Power of NOW

Hello hello! I hope the month of hearts is going great for you, not only relationship-wise, but also with career, family, and well-being. :)

Now, for this outfit post, it’s either the weather’s getting too cold lately or I’ve been so hooked with Kdrama. Probably both! Aside from those reasons, I love this whole look because it screams comfort and style.

Speaking of comfort, this is important not only in fashion but also in real life. Two ironic but equally vital purposes: being comfortable and stepping out of your comfort zone. I’d talk about the latter and leave the first one for another post. :)

As you know, Deo, Kuya Monty and I recently jumped into the unknown - the world of entrepreneurship. With just fueled souls, love for food, passion to chase the ultimate dream, and a big heart, we took the risk and created Little Bistro. Deo and I are leaving our day jobs to focus on sustaining and growing this business (and our blogs). We’re bound to lose our stable salary and convenient workplace, but we studied and assessed our lives after this (before coming up with the big decision, just so you know). We’re bound to bigger and brighter things!

Did we ever feel worried and scared? A lot of times. Countless self-questioning and self-doubts. The road to building Little Bistro wasn’t simple. But that’s when we finally felt that it’s time to jump. To explain, let me share with you this quote that I’ve stumbled upon recently: Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

Let the “now” empower you. Don’t delay your goals just because you’re afraid or because you want to keep the safe and easy path. You can go on and on wishing for a better life, but nothing will happen if you don’t do anything about it. Take it from us. Don’t underestimate your strength. ;)

I know we still have a long way to go, and we’ll still face a lot of challenges. Yet we’re armed and ready for what’s ahead. We're doing this for the people we love, and we believe that's enough reason to keep going.
