New Year, New Start

Saturday, January 03, 2015

Here is my mantra for the year. I already have my game face on last year but there were still hesitations. But this 2015, I will try to battle my fears more. It's been a while since I shared my goals so I thought why not show them to my readers again.

1. More 'Me' time.
I haven't really focused on myself so I think I should this year especially because I'm not getting any younger. I should better myself not only physically but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

2. Don't stop reading.
2014 was a disappointing year for my reading escapades. It was without a doubt below average and my worst reading year. I vowed to open more books, savor their stories and explore new worlds.

3. Travel.
I want to see more places, bask in different cultures and traditions, and just embrace the pleasure of wandering.

4. Save more and spend wisely.
Since I finally have an investment, I think it is best to really think before I buy. Stop being impulsive. Maybe I could spend once in a while because there's nothing wrong in rewarding myself but I still should make sure to save a bigger lot of it.

5. Be business-minded.
I've always wanted to have my own shop or to do something where I can earn money, aside from working. It should be related to the things I love so I can enjoy striving in it while getting profit.

6. Being fit is key.
I definitely gained weight a lot last 2014 more than all my 22 years combined. For me, I am enjoying my gastronomic adventures but a friend once told me that I should enjoy my youth. I've been feeling bad lately and my confidence are bit by bit depleting so this is really one of my main goals this year.

7. Back to Basics.
Another goal of mine, wardrobe wise, is to complete the basic pieces a woman needs in her life that will last and survive all the ever-changing trends.

8. Blogging.
To be honest, it's really hard to maintain a blog especially if it's not your profession and if you're juggling everyday life. I always fail to revive and maintain it. But I should try and keep trying. The target is to not post every single day but at least to update it once in a while--once or twice a week.

9. Acquire new skills & get new achievements.
This will remain constant in my resolutions. It feels good to do something that you've never done before and it can also be your bragging rights, you know! It makes you better and it can mold you to the person you want to become.

10. Believe and love yourself.
Don't put yourself down because 'YOU' can be your worst enemy. Try giving yourself compliments. See more of your beauty and the good in you rather than pin-pointing your flaws.

What's your 2015 goals? :)

Love lots, xx
