Sometimes, sticking by the value system you create for yourself can be hard. And that’s because you created that value system based on your perception of the ideal you, not the real you. The “you” you want to become. That value system was created in the hopes of getting closer to the person you aim to be. And sometimes you feel that the only way to achieve that is through following that value system to the T. In the process, you can be too hard on yourself without realizing it. It is okay to let go once in a while and let yourself breathe. While aiming for perfectionand righteousness (whatever that might mean to you because perfection and righteousness are both subjective) is the right thing to do, it is also important to realize that Rome wasn’t built in a day. When you fail to stick by what you believe is right, you will be disappointed in yourself. However, the important thing is to learn from the disappointment and put a finger on the reason why you took a step that so clearly didn’t align with your value system. What was your conscience’s rationale behind it? And the conclusion can go either way- either you modify yourself or you modify your value system. It’s an agile process and that’s how it is supposed to be. And that’s how, by process of elimination, and trial and error, you would have inadvertently become the ideal you.

This blog is an attempt at taking charge of my life and giving “writing” – my passion – a chance to revive. Having tested myself over the years, I know I lose interest in my initiatives easily and hardly do I ever complete what I started. So, I have given myself a schedule and a deadline. I took inspiration from my very recent watch – Julie & Julia. Go watch it if you haven’t already! Take some time to explore the blog, read something interesting, subscribe to know every time I post and feel free to comment or reach out if you would like to collaborate on a project together.
