2013 is officially old news now. It is now considered a thing of the past. Let's all say Hello to 2014! =) Every year, I make a list of things that I ought to change, things I need to remember, new things that I should be doing to make me a better person. But 2013 had proven me utterly wrong, last year was an upside down topsy turvy year for me. I gave up my profession, gave up my career as a registered nurse. If you ask me why, I can't give you a direct answer because up to this day, there are still a lot of questions that were left unanswered. I left my hometown, flew all the way to Manila to search for that one thing that will hopefully make me a fulfilled individual, to find that something that will make me happy. I ended up landing a job as a call center agent, It was cool at first, mastering the art of speaking fluently in English came naturally to me because I've been using that dialect since the day I learned how to speak. Being a call center agent is , something that I've always wanted to try. It's something I know I'm good at, Something I know I could excel. But, It didn't make me happy. That's how 2013 was for me, searched, discovered and learned a lot of new things. But, something is still missing and I hope I'll be able to complete that missing part this 2014.
So what exactly are my New Years Resolution ?
1.) Spend Less, Save More.
Don't get me wrong. I can reallyyyy save. I have that special ability of saving and spending at the same time. but, this year I'd like to learn how not to spend on things that aren't important, things that I don't need and won't be needing. Like for example, spending moolahs on shoes. This is one addiction that I have to control and get rid of. I have to make my self understand that I already have a bunch of shoes, and I don't need new ones anymore. =)
2.) Early to Bed and Early to rise.
I'll skip this resolution for now because I have always been nocturnal. and right now, It's 5:00 am of January 1st and I'm still wide awake. but, I'll try my best to get my body clock on it's proper form this 2014.
3.) Less Carbs, More Exercise.
I need to get into an exercise routine because 2013 was a carbs year for me. Didn't even care about exercise. This year I need to work out more and eat more fruits, veggies and drinks lotsa water. Avoid my favorite Mountain Dew and My favorite Tenga barbeque from the kanto! =D
4.) Find a permanent job
Find a job that will make me feel happy and fulfilled. A job that will not make me feel that I'm working. A job that for the first time I would really enjoy and at the end of the day I won't feel stress and burned out about it. A job that I can make a career out of. I just need a freaking job! =)
5.) Find my passion in life
Ever since I was a kid, My passion would always have to be dancing. Dancing is something that I enjoy doing, Every time I dance It makes me forget about things that bring stress to my life. Right now, I need a new passion, something that I will feel excited about, something that will hopefully make me a better ME.=)
6.) Letting go
This year, I'm letting go of everything that had brought me pain. especially those people who only treat me as one of their options. I believe I deserve better!
7.) Travel More
Places that I would love to visit this 2014 : Balesin Island, Singapore, Macau, Indonesia, Bangkok. I know this will be pricey but even just one among the five will be amazing =) I would really love to visit Paris someday, but that will be part of my new years resolution for the year 2030. =D
8.) BE BUSY.
This year, I hope things will be hectic for me, I hope I get to do a lot of things. I hope my organizer for this year will be full of scheduled appointments, meetings, vacations..anything just to keep me busy and to help me forget about the things I should be forgetting and focus on things that needs to be prioritized. I just want to feel that somehow I'm in the right direction, that I'm going somewhere and someday I'll be that someone that I've always wanted to be.
These are the three things that I've always wanted to achieve, and I hope I get to live, love and be happy this 2014. Fingers crossed. =)
10.) Be Strong.
I keep telling this to myself, but somewhere in this puny brain of mine, It won't listen. This year I'll make sure everything will be different. I'll live my life one day at a time. It will be the end of all my dramas that I've been having for 25 years now, I'll start smiling no matter how stressed I am and just simply, be happy =)
Most of the time, I don't get to fulfill my new years resolution but at least I know who I am, and what I want to be starting this year and for the next years to follow. I don't normally tell other people my resolutions but this year, I just felt the urge to share it.
Whats your New Years Resolution? =)
