2018 - Here's a Start

Before anything else, I want to greet you HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I’ve never been so excited to start a new year in my entire life. Thank you to everyone who took part in my 2017. It has been tough but hey, I’m here now and I survived so HOORAY! What about you? Did you have it rough last year as well? Is so; I am giving you the Survivor Award! You made it as well! I could tell you stories about my 2017 but I am typing this post quiet late and I want to publish it before the clock strikes midnight so, I’ll leave it for next time.

Right. So it’s New Year, but what else is going to change for you? I know there are others out there who hates the phrase ‘New Year, New Me’ and if you’re reading this and you’re one of them, you shouldn’t. Everyone has their own reasons why they want to change! I could go on an on about this but there’s no point because I made my own phrase which is ‘New Year, Better Me’. It’s still me but better, most especially in my ways of thinking and on my ways on how to handle my emotions. I’ve read a quote from Twitter from an unknown author, which says ‘Do not let your emotions overpower your intelligence’. I am not the most intellectual human being out there but my point is that sometimes I just make stupid actions because I didn’t know how to control my emotions.

So here, if you look at my archive the last time I made New Year’s Resolutions was in 2014. Here I am, making new ones after 4 years.

Here’s some on my list:

·      To always seek first the Kingdom of God
·      Do not let comparison steal your joy
·      Enjoy every moment
·      Collect moments, not things
·      Stop overthinking
·      Trust in God’s timing because many are going nowhere fast

On the other hand, as I was scrolling through my social media when an unexpected phone call showed up on my phone screen- it was Louigie, our soon Nurse to be friend. We talked for almost half hour. Then, she asked me about what I am going to do tonight so I told her that I am going to start writing again. I told her about how I only have one blog post last year and gosh, at least I had one. She recommended that I should write ‘things to do to survive when you’re away from your family’. However, since I’m still a newbie on my journey to independence, I’m afraid I cannot give you the proper advice yet. So here I am writing as a goal digger not clearly having any idea what to write except little snippets of my random thoughts.  

Anyway, to keep my blog going, I’ve been planning to do Saturday Pondering. If you’re a blog reader, some blogger actually do Sunday Currently where they write what they are doing every Sunday, including the music they listen to, etc. Well, I am going to try to make my own version. Saturday Pondering will be a day to reflect my previous week and a day to plan the new week that lies ahead. Let’s hope this is going to work out well!

I apologise if this post isn’t very coherent and if I am going on different tangents, I just didn’t plan on what to post today so it looks a total mess. Thanks for reading this anyway! HAVE A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Take care.
