The best version of you is always evolving
Updated: Apr 6, 2021
In the midst of achieving our dreams, we should try to not wait for the next “big thing” to define the best version of ourselves. It’s important to remember that the best version of you is never final, but instead constantly evolving. If we Imagine our experiences as drops of water - we see that each drop has contributed to our ocean. Without all those drops - our ocean would not exist.
I believe there is no end to growth. Accepting failure as a part of the growth is critical. We have to allow patience to support us in navigating this journey, or rather this discovery.
Personally, I have found it freeing knowing that the best version of myself can be right now - in this moment. I don’t have to wait for anything external to define that for me. It isn't about changing who we are - but instead embracing all aspects of ourselves and working towards our personal healing.
In this new year, instead of setting resolutions, I decided to be committed to being more present in all that I do. I believe if we can be more present, we can have more meaningful experiences with ourselves and others. Often our bodies are present but our minds are elsewhere - worried about the past and future. A simple acknowledgement of our own breath can help us reconnect to the present moment.
The best version of ourselves is here and now, because the present moment is all that exists. Each new day is a blessing. Each day is a drop of water that fills our personal ocean.
