Being The Best Version Of You

Best version of you

Its 4:30 am my alarm goes, i press snooze and by the time i open my eyes again its 5:00am. I hurridly jump out of bed, grab my bible, journal and mobile phone. Turn up the music on my favorite worship playlist while my kettle is on the burner [Np: Worship Rise by Travis Greene ]

Spend sometime with God before the water boils and i go take my bath *meanwhile breakfast is the least on my mind right now* Get out of the shower and get dressed and my makeup done, drinking a cup of tea [with three cubes of sugar and two teaspoons of milk please]. By the time i am leaving the house its already 7:00 am. I am already late for work. On the road and i am stuck in traffic and get to work 9:00 am. Its 7:00pm and i am home, having bossed the day, made new friends and connections, and i spend the night catching up my favorite tv series.

How was i able to make new friends and bossed the day, its because i let the best version of me shine throughout the day and not let my irritation overshadow me.

Who are you
Before we get down to the best version of you. Ask yourself who are you? Whats the best side of you? Mine would definitely be different from yours. Mine is that i can be really friendly and try as much to put a smile on someone’s face, laughing. For you it could be that side that stays confident and upbeat no matter what life throws at you.

Get organised
I like to pick out my outfits for the next day the night before so i dont have to worry about that the next morning [even the bag i have to carry too], my to-do list for a new week is usually done on a sunday night. This reminds me of a post i wrote on how to be organized. I try to get a lot done during the weekend which helps the week run smoothly 

Best version of you

Be your most beautiful self
What makes you feel beautiful? Mine is well tailored outfits, simple accessories and a scent to die for [not literally die]. When you know what makes you feel beautiful, bring that out every day. It would boost your confidence level.

Stay at your best
What makes you switch from your best version, figure it out and try to work on it. For me its tiredness, when i am tired i get irritated. When that happens i listen to calming music or worship music [i just listen], take deep breathes, sometimes take a nap. Figure out what works for you.

Best version of you

I hope this post helps you be and stay the best version of you.

    My mother used to always tell me to always put my best foot forward. You never know who you may meet.

    What a lovely post! I’d probably change the Worship music to some hardcore death metal music, but different people function in different ways. This was such an inspiring read!

    Planning and organising the night before definitely makes me the best version of myself. But you’re right it’s all about figuring out what works for you, I’m sure some people love the rush of a disarrayed morning!

    What a nice and motivating post with great tips! I always try to put everything ready for the morning before I go to bed. I also plan all my meals once and then shop everything on Monday. Makes the week so much more easier! I’ve also found scheduling and to do lists helpful.

    Wow, getting up at 4.30am would be such a hard thing for me! I am lucky and I have a short commute to work so I have some time in the morning but I should get my outfit organised the night before to save time anyway. The one thing I am doing, to be the best version of myself is doing 30mins of exercise every day. I work in an office so there isn’t much activeness there and I feel so good getting out and about after work, getting my sweat on and my daily dose of Vitamin D
