One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

November 26, 2014

I know I’ve mentioned this either on this blog or on my other blog, but yes, my language of love is recognition. With that being said, I realized how an over-achiever I can be. I love starting something and most of the time I find it real hard to finish what I started.

One step forward, two steps back…

I always try to find another thing or stuff to add in my responsibility. For example, I have my daily job but I still do events and I did not just stop at being an event emcee I became an event planner/coordinator as well. Another scenario is this blog. Though from 8AM-6PM, my work will require to write, I still sign up a blog (two blogs by the way) that I have to update with contents.

I did an eBook and was inspired to follow up this with more early next year.  I also do Youtube videos as I was inspired by the likes of Michelle Phan, Bubzbeauty, BeyondBeautyStar and local gurus such as Say Tioco Artillero, Ana Patricia Victorino and Michelle Dy.

And aside from the above mentioned I do freelance writing for websites such as www.hiexpat.com

Of course it’s worth mentioning that I joggle all these roles along side my being a follower of God, daughter to my parents, a sibling to my brother and sisters, a family member to my relatives, a friend to my friends, a Marketing Assistant to my company and a whole lot more titles I find it hard to mention.

And yes I want MORE…

I have lined up a list of projects for next year both career-wise and personal-wise and I know starting something is very hard. I also fail. I once had this brilliant idea to sell makeup in a box (think of BDJ Box, Glamourbox and Saladbox) but I failed because of lack of knowledge, preparation and experience. I bought an LCD Projector for I thought I could let it be rented for events but the business is not good and the projector is at home and primarily used for at home movie watching.

But I still believe that in every failure comes the opportunity for success.

I still have a lot to try. My 21 and Better list is just waiting for my response. More Personal and Financial Goals needed to be achieved and of course I am entitled to be better in what I do.

Hope everything turns out well in God’s perfect timing.
