My second work week started with an early meeting in our department. It wasn't entirely toxic, for aside from the work-related agenda, our boss also gave us mentoring slash words of wisdom. :p Won't be sharing the entire piece with you, except for this open-ended question which, in my belief, we can all relate to and ponder on.

"Are you - right now - who you want to be, what you dreamed you'd be, doing what you've always wanted to do?"

I know it's too early to conclude, but I'm happy and satisfied with where I'm at right now. I'm still learning to balance my day job and this blog, my time with events and peers, juggling priorities and sacrificing some opportunities. Tiring, yes, but challenge accepted! ;)

Are you - right now - who you want to be?

Even when I was younger, I want to be the daughter that my parents can be proud of. The accomplishments I've given to them are nothing compared to everything they've done for me. Aside from taking care of them and loving them as they grow old, I'll try my best to shower/spoil Daddy and Mommy with anything they desire.

Are you - right now - what you dreamed you'd be?

Honestly, I don't know. I'm still figuring out what I really want to become. But I'm overjoyed that I'm living my life to the fullest. I have a lot of dreams; slowly, I'll fulfill them. We'll get to that eventually! :)

Are you - right now - doing what you've always wanted to do?

I never hated fashion (never will, actually). I remember despite the degree I took, when I was still in college, I already imagined myself working in the fashion and retail industry. This is what I've always wanted to do, I know that for sure. Regardless of how dynamic and stressful this career is, I love what I'm doing so I always go home with a smile. Same with Raid My Closet, when I went all out full time with this blog, no matter how tight my schedule was (miski kasabay ng thesis nun), di ko maiwanan kami mahal ko talaga. Hahaha hashtag clingy!!!

Pero you know, everything written in this blog post may change. We'll never know, maybe in a couple of weeks, months, years... daming pwede mangyari! What matters most is right now. If you're NOT who you want to be, NOT what you dreamed you'd be, NOT doing what you've always wanted to do, then perhaps you must contemplate on yourself and find out the answer. Keri mo yan!!! ♥
