Gosh, it’s been a long time since I just sat down and wrote a blog post! I know I am the most inconsistent blogger but sometimes, reality just gets in the way. 2016 has been a rollercoaster year for me – it was filled with challenges, anxiety and some of the lowest moments in my life. There were also some good things that happened in 2016 for which I’m really grateful. If there’s one thing that 2016 has taught me it’s that there’s no such thing as a perfect life and all our ups and downs are what make life worth living.
I welcome 2017 with an open mind and an adventurous spirit. I’ve been telling myself that 2017 will be my year – a year where I can concentrate on myself and follow my dreams. In the past, I didn’t really take New Year’s Resolutions seriously. Yes I wrote them down but I was never really good at following them through. And so this year, I will make it my personal mission to stick to my resolutions! God, help me!! Hahaha.
This year, I plan to make health my top priority. It’s sad to say that I neglect my health most often because of my hectic job and that in 2016, I found myself sick most of the time. This year I plan to eat healthier and exercise!
It’s time to be an adult! I have some savings but I feel like I can save more. I want to have a budget plan in 2017 and to actually stick to it! I’m not getting any younger and I want to be financially stable so I can actually enjoy my life!
I’m in a job that I actually really hate; one that stifles my creativity. I gave the corporate world a good shot and I’ve realized that it’s not for me. So in 2017, I promised myself that I will work towards doing what I would really like to do full-time in the future which is to write and be a MUA. Of course I wouldn’t drop everything and leave my job right away. But I promise to do things that would get my creative juices flowing like attending classes, being a freelance MUA and blogging more!
I used to be really conscious about what other people think or what they might say about something. I used to be really bothered by that. I also used to panic aboutthe smallest things, even those that are out of my control. This 2017, I plan to be more chill and not let others opinions get to me. I’ve also realized that there are some things that are out of our control and we just need to let things be as they are. I’ve realized that I need to learn to move on and not let my mistakes define me.
I hope 2017 will be an awesome year for us! Wherever you may be, whatever it is you are doing in life, I wish you all the best this 2017! May you guys find your dreams coming true this year! Xoxo!
