Starting Over

This whole new year, new me is really screwing me over.
I always want to purse my creative side, but it seems time is never on my side.
I was planning to post at least two blogs per week with somewhat quality contents.
Guess what? I barely made a decent one in two weeks.
Two freaking weeks.
How is that possible?!?! Yep I am just really busy.
My dad visited us last Saturday; he arrived at JFK.
I had to drive to NY, but it is worth it.
Cause I miss him so much, and I would do anything just to see him again.
I love this reconnecting/bounding time I have with him.

But I need more time.
I need more space.
I need more inspirations.

I have one post in mind, but it requires a lot of research.

I do not have enough of time.
I am smiling outside, slowly but surely, I’m having a little mental breakdown now.

I just want to start over.

Stay blessed and Happy Saturday

Goals

The first few weeks of a new year, I always feel fresh, grateful, and mostly hopeful of what to come next, and this year, it is no difference. I am not going to lie, I spent almost half of my day yesterday checking my horoscope. I am a cancerian by the way. There is something exciting about new year, it feels like the start of a new chapter, something from a sketch. I do not have faiths in new year resolutions, but I believe in goals and personal growth. One might argues that resolution and goal are the same entity, but I beg to differ. Goals are specific achievements, while resolutions are permanent changes in your life. Permanent? Yes this is why resolutions and I are not best friends. I love to set goals and achieve them, rather than modifying part of myself permanently. For example, I want to be healthy, but not a gym rat (Does it even make sense?). Accomplishing goals can be a great factor to happiness, but they can easily cause discouragement if those goals are not done before their deadlines.

Below are some of my goals for this year:

  1. Finish reading 20 books by the end of 2017
  2. Pay off my debt and re-establish my emergency cash flow by the end of 2017
  3. Go to Europe this summer again (September)
  4. Reach 100 followers on WordPress by the end of 2017
  5. Received two professional certifications by the end of August
  6. Publish creative contents on YouTube channel (20 videos by the end of 2017).

I hope this list will inspire at least one person to create a personal goal for this year. Remember, you do not have to set up your expectations too high, make goals that are attainable in a long run. Two good keys of achieving your goals: planning and commitment. If you master those two items, you are good to go. I am still learning, and hopefully, I would be able to look at this again, and said “I fucking did all of these”.
Hope everyone have a blast and may 2017 helps your grow to be whoever you want to be.
