HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
First few days of 2019 and I was panting already, felt like I just had a good 30 mins running sesh. Ha. Who’s with me?
Yes! New Year could be overwhelming sometimes as we’re skimming thorough others’ profiles, reading through others’ captions, listening to others’ podcasts – which loaded with so many NEW RESOLUTIONS & NEW GOALS. Meanwhile…we find ourself stuck with (still) another opened grocery lists for the week. Please, don’t feel so small on this. You are not alone. At least I am feeling this, I am overwhelmed by all the resolutions I read on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I feel I am behind others. And I tell you… it’s not a good feeling. I’ve been forcing myself these past few days finding ways to press the juices out of my head, to come up with some new resolutions; however I ended up with more pressure than before.
I had always start my year with some lists of big resolutions but at the end of the year NOT all of them were even close to reality. Some of them were far to reach or somehow I was making the wrong decision at some point of the journey that cost me a business opportunity.
It is hard to accept but I’ve learned that one failure does not make you a loser. Tomorrow is a brand new day! Get up, turn up, be awesome, repeat!
Hence, it is okay to NOT have any resolutions this year. Just keep doing what you’re doing today – better, faster, harder, further, more efficient, more intensional.
There’s nothing wrong to keep being a stay at home mum with 3 kids under 5 yo – just plan the weekly meal a week earlier than last year
There’s nothing wrong to keep “patience” in your resolution list – just control mind and emotion better than last year
There’s nothing wrong with working for the same company since forever – just work harder on your presentation won’t hurt
There’s nothing wrong with your gym membership, just need a little more commitment to smash the gym 3 days a week
Learn to appreciate every small win you have achieved today. Grow the confidence within you. And kick some ass. And be surprised of how far your commitments / good habits / positive intentions will take you closer to your dreams.
Here are my top 5 daily commitments for 2019:
- be more organised with my “free time” – less phone usage, more reading
- wake up 15 minutes earlier than usual
- use more journal to plan my day
- drink more water
- regular house declutters every quarter
So, whether you have some thing/area to improve this year, whether you are trying live a better quality life this year, or whether you are praying to go bigger with your business? I would like to encourage you to stop worrying of the peer pressure and start working on your dreams. Start this year with new COMMITMENTS. Things you have decided in your heart and work on it on daily basis. I truly believe in my heart that you will see the harvest of your labour in its due time.
Share some of your commitments for this year to below on the comment. I would like to hear from you and be part of your journey towards your dreams.
Once again… HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope this year will bring you so much happiness and fulfilment into your life. BRING ON 2019!
