Hello everyone, Meryl here! And it’s Reflection Monday again!
Before I start, I want to thank everyone who read my last Reflection Monday post (Insecurity became a hindrance). I got a lot of great feedback from all of you. Some of you messaged me about their own insecurity experiences. I feel grateful that you have given me the chance to listen to your stories. I’m glad that you want to overcome your insecurities as well. We still have a long way to go but we can do this together.
Honestly, I didn’t plan any topic to post for today. I literally just opened my laptop and started typing what was on my mind.
It’s July, a new month, and kinda half of 2016. Looking back, a lot of things already happened this 2016. It was such a wave for me to realize that I experienced so much. I met new friends, passed my tests, got into my dream school, and graduated! I also started my photography hobby ever since I bought my own camera and I also celebrated my sister’s debut… I also made my own blog and I even started to share my experiences to all of you. All that happened were so fast and overwhelming. I remember just having those happenings in my dreams and next, I didn’t even know where to start…. And now I’m here.
This feeling of fulfillment from what I accomplished so far this 2016 is great—amazing. As I accomplish my goals, I get to create new ones.
Every single day, when I wake up I always think of what I should do today. Watch a movie? Type for my blog? Do some photography? Read? Paint? There are so much things that I want to accomplish. I found myself so blessed. I get to do things that I want; also, I have the opportunity to reach goals and to set new ones for just one day.
“What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.” -Ralph Marston
Whenever I see this quote from Ralph Marston, I feel motivated to do something productive everyday. Whatever you do will affect the next day. Do your best and give your 101%! I believe that you won’t lose if you will give it your all. Even if you fail, you gave your all.
I have no idea what’s ahead of me but I know that I want to keep on setting goals for myself. I want to discover more about everyone, the world and myself. I find it amazing how we can keep on dreaming, setting goals, achieving and feeling the sense of fulfillment.
Given the opportunity to realize my blessing, I want to let other people know who needs help know that they need to become mindful to their gifts as well. For me, knowing what we have and appreciating it, is one of my key ingredient to happiness.
