It’s been a minute since i wrote a year ending post.Only that a whole year has passed…
A whole year..
Okay the year isn’t over so its like 12 days to go but heyyy!!
2017 came and is leaving with the speed of light.
Its that time of the year where everyone starts talking about “new year new me”, “Hey 2017 thank you for the lessons, 2018 I’m ready” and all the other stuff we post..
(Tag us when you do)
We might as well take time to evaluate our goals/resolutions for 2017 and reflect on how far we have come, what unexpected stumbles we have encountered and what is the way forward to 2018 as we keep on being the adults we want to be and working on ourselves.
MY 2017 GOALS AND RESOLUTION.
I had never written resolutions and goals for new year until 2016 .I wrote my goals for the first time that year.
Because i had just gotten a new notebook 🙂 .Being the writer that i am i wrote my goals on the very first page of that notebook. All sorts of them.
By the end of 2016 i had achieved like 3 of them..Out of 10 or 12 .I updated the list twice . In August 2016 and during new year festival in 2017 .
My goals were focused on personal development both like becoming more emotionally strong , learning French or Spanish (I just know basics ) , physical development because #fitislit and obesity increases your risk for lifestyle diseases . Enzemat lets you know where healthwise you are at and what you need to do.
I also wanted to actually do things i wanted to do and finish what I started and bettering my skills (crafting, writing and medicine)
Improving my relationship with God by improving my relationship with myself and others as well as building consistency in prayer and Bible reading.
I was so good at it in those first days.. Then i forgot about the notebook and went back to my old ways. However whenever I came across that notebook i’d do something to get closer to my goals.
I have amazed my self in some (like finishing my book and stealing a page in a newspaper as well as in personal growth )
Some goals are still wondering if we should really be together.. Giving me a constant look like
I’ll tell you one thing that has been pulling me back though.. Or rather what i use to not slay my life as i planned.
- Lack of Consistency
Also known as not wanting it bad enough. Consistency is married to Procrastination ..also known as I’ll do it when time is almost over (Hello deadliners😁😁)
This is what my exercise routine is like
Monday:Really excited goes out to jog.. Or uses Daily workouts(Get the app from playstore)
Tuesday:Sore legs from Yesterday’s jog/whatever exercise i did
Wednesday :I have Sore legs remember
Thursday:We all know I have sore legs.. They need a break for as long as 2 weeks.
Two weeks later :I need to exercise
And on and on goes my vicious cycle .
The down side of being a deadliner is that sometimes you have no deadlines. The only thing you have to do is set your self deadlines and beat them. To do this, you need Self discipline .Cultivating a habit of self discipline is a goal I am taking to 2018 .Its probably the only sword to kill Procrastination and Lack of consistency.
And again i am going to update my 2017 list. And probably make a vision board and Draw my life.
As we March towards 2018 ,may we become more stronger and compassionate with each other. May we keep on working on ourselves and in the process inspire each other towards Change and Improvement. May we Keep smiling at the confusion as we enjoy every moment of our lives.
Here to the achievements, lessons and all the gifts from 2017.
And here is to more of that in 2018.
Happy New year Twentiz.
Thank you so much for the support and encouragement and love .
