Revisiting my 2017 resolutions

So, how good had I been in 2017?

Considering all factors, really good. My 2017 was so great, it’s really hard not to be excited about how much better my 2018 is going to be if I keep the momentum. I went back to my resolutions post last year and these are what I listed:

  • Move
  • Save
  • Create
  • Grow

I have done 2 out of the 4, and I am more than happy about that. I am still working on the other two, and 2018 is going to be the year I do them, while maintaining my progress on those I’d done in 2017.

 

2018 Resolution/s

This year, I’m writing only one: I will be more mindful of my actions in the sense that everything I do must have a contribution to what I want myself to become. If I don’t see a benefit to a particular activity, I won’t do it. It sounds so simple, yet it’s probably one of the hardest things I will ever do. We do so many things everyday and sometimes, we have gotten used to living in the present that it’s hard to look a few steps forward (especially me). I guess the first step is defining who I want to become, and then I’ll go from there.

Wish me luck! Happy New Year, everyone!

Except for my long afternoon nap from the other day, I haven’t done much resting at all. I’ve been busy getting a new job, processing employment requirements, the holidays, working on the THS website, and catching up on blog posts. Sigh.

But with that said, I know I’m doing all this to make way for a better 2017, so I’m pretty much fine with it. After months of feeling inadequate, I found myself some much-needed motivation to become a better me in the coming year. And as 2016 comes to an end, I am writing down my resolutions for 2017. It’s a rather short list this time as I’m trying to set realistic goals.
