Good Things..

Happy New Year!!
It's also my birthday today. For some reasons turning a year older is making me reassess my whole life lol. I don't mind though. I am not where my younger self had imagined I would be today but I'm not in a bad place either. I hope I never get to a point where I'm simply comfortable and stop setting new goals, challenging myself and growing.
There is a lot I want to happen career wise but I only have limited control over things. I'm just going to prepare for everything I pray for and make the best of whatever happens.

In terms of self improvement I really have to work on better time management and eradicate this bad procrastination habit I've had for years now (I know this is going to be a though one).

My goals are mainly based on progress and self improvement. I don't want to focus on too much at the same time so I broke it down this way (among other things)..

Body 
I'm doing a 9 week workout plan starting tomorrow January 2nd and ending on March 5th. March sounds far away but I just had another 9 week program to end the year 2016 and it went unbelievably quick. I'm also going to practice eating breakfast this same period and avoid improvised unhealthy snacks before lunch. 

Mind
I'm going to do more reading, educate myself more and try to find new source of inspiration every week. I've also switched my routines a bit and trying to get myself out my comfort zone (I'm hoping this would help stimulate my mind differently). 

Soul
I've started the Joyce Meyer 365 days promises for your everyday life devotional on the Bible app. First day was very enlightening and motivating and I'm pretty excited about the other 364 days.

I'm slightly anxious about this but a in a good way. I'm also trying to take a picture a day to challenge my creativity, I wonder what that's going to turn out like.

These are my main mottos for the year:
Make the best of what you have
Be better than yesterday
Enjoy the moment
Be good, Do good.

  4. I like the one picture a day challenge. I want to improve my photography skills even when I think I slightly improved over the years (I used to be really bad at it). And I also want to be healthier this year. I gained so much weight last year and I feel like it is already taking a toll on me. Not that I need to lose weight but I need to start eating healthy.

    Happy New Year dear! :)

  24. Oh, then happy belated birthday!I also have birthday soon, this month, and you know what, that is good, because we start like a fresh new year in many ways :) I think you are doing so fine and listing your goals, and I really hope you achieve everything that you want! Careerwise, body, soul, everything! I also must assess my exercising goals... that I keep on saying every year and do nothing... I liked the 365 days-app and yes, we should always be kind... it really does wonders for us and for everybody! Happy new year!!!! Enjoy it a lot!

  35. Happy Birthday! I hope the day has been wonderful. I'm yet to sit down and properly delve into what I want this year but so far been having fun reading others resolutions (while getting ideas for myself). I love the idea of taking one photo a day to challenge yourself creatively. I might have to adopt that one too. I also need to add organisation because I've become so slack these past few years.
