Dear Future Self

Dear Future Self,

It’s a tad bit awkward knowing that I’m writing this. I was originally supposed to just do a regular blog post talking about what kind of progress I’ve made throughout the week. It’s actually harder than it looks, so here I am writing to you in hopes that one day you’ll look back to remember the struggles you are going through.

My life has been a mess. I realized that the only person to blame is myself. I’ve made some idiotic mistakes that got me in this situation in the first place. I’m financially struggling and I can’t run anymore.

You’re probably in a good place right now or at least I hope so. I’m hoping that by the end of this year, I will be able to walk a path far better than this one. Right now, I have a wonderful girlfriend who’s been with me through everything.

She’s been with me through all my hardships, and I sometimes feel like I don’t deserve that kind of love. Afterall, I feel that she deserves someone better. Future self, if only you could give me some kind of hint on where I should go… this would be a lot easier.

It is in my hopes that the person I love is the person I’ll end up marrying because I know she sees a part in me that I don’t even see. So I guess, I’m trying here… Let’s face it. I wanted to give up. I wanted to stay in my comfort zone, but it just feels like I’m being pulled away from that more and more I try to stay in this little world of mine.

If you look back at this whether it’ll be tomorrow or a year from now. Please let me know how much I’ve progressed since writing you this.

It’s Not All About You; Engage Others

It’s a brand new week I’m off to a good start. I was able to do my running before I went to work. I was able to do my body weight training. I was able to do my miracle morning and then clean up the whole store.

So what’s my plan for this week? My plan is to be consistent with the content I’m posting but more importantly I think I want to start engaging with other people. I used to sit back and just get likes and comments. I would expect for people to like my posts, but I never replied back to people. What’s worse is that I would never comment other people’s posts either.

So starting today, I am hoping that I would spend at least 1 hour each day commenting people’s pictures or social media posts. People put effort to put content out there so the least we can do is interact. Social media was created so we connect with others, but sometimes we’re just seeking attention for ourselves only.

500 Word Blog per Day

So I’ve been practically reading one book per day. It’s amazing how much I can finish in such a short of time. I usually get my books from Amazon Kindle and I have to say it’s so much better than taking the time to drive to the library all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love paperback books. But there’s something about being able to carry my iPad and carry multiple books at time to read. That’s not the point to this blog.
I’m big on personal development, and even though I have yet to improve on many areas of my life; I can’t help but feel motivated to better myself. So that’s what this blog is about. It’s me trying to create a better habit that I can implement automatically without me thinking about it. My blogs have become short, and I never really keep track of how many words I’m typing per blog. So I’m going to try to make it consistent in the beginning stage. If I can somehow manage to make 500 words per day, then I can say that I’ll be improving a lot more along the way.
Other than that, I’m doing well. I got a stable job finally and I got promoted within 2 months. My goal is for me to get promoted even more. I honestly love this job. I love talking to customers especially the ones who love to talk with you as well. In my downtime, I usually spend it bettering myself. Most of the time you’ll find me just reading on my iPad. I think I got bored of Netflix. The only times I spend watching is when my absolute favorite shows are on. The same thing happened when I used to love playing games.
I’m not sure what happened along the way, but eventually I just stopped playing games. Don’t get me wrong… I play games once in a while, but I don’t play them hours at a time like I used to. Slowly Netflix will fade out, and books has become a big part of my life. I’m not sure if I could call myself an avid reader. It is in my hopes though that I an start working on my blogs and working on social media more along with my personal development. 
Even though I love to read so much, I won’t get anywhere with my business if I don’t start implementing something. I admit that I’m dealing with a lot right now in life. I admit that I made some mistakes in my life that I wish I could’ve changed. I can’t keep dwelling on the past. I’m focused on the present and the actions I can do at this moment that will better my future. 
It is in my hopes that I can do BeachBody again. I’m not really sure. BeachBody is really the only company that I’m interested when it comes to health and fitness. If you have any other suggestions on business ventures I can look into, please let me know.
Other than that, I thank you for reading.
