Happy New Year, boos! I know I’m kind of almost a week late with the greetings and all but better late than never, right? Actually, I feel like days and nights are rather shorter now. It seems like yesterday I was rushing into holiday shopping and now, the first week of January is over. I gotta be honest with you, I’ve never been so relieved to let go of 2017. It was really a year of ups and downs for me. A lot of things happened. It was probably one of the years that really tested my courage and patience, and I can’t be thankful enough that I got to say goodbye to it, for good. But enought with the past and let’s get going with the future ahead of us. This little lady right here is more than ready to take over and claim this year her “Best Year EVER!”. So, as a way to start my year fresh, here are my goals for 2018.

Be Spontaineous || once in a while. I’ve always been the kind of person who has everything planned out. I practically own a tooon of notebooks/planners full of the things I will/want to do. From simple brunch dates to international trips. It’s really just my way to control everything because I feel like if I have the power, I’d be able to prevent bad things from happening. I know it sounds weird but I’m not alone on this, right? So, I guess, it would really be fun to just not have the idea on what to do or where to go sometimes. More like, go on with flow or go wherever the wind takes you.

Explore The World || This may sound too superficial but I really wanna work on this. I’m not just talking about going on trips and seeing all the countries this year. I’m talking about going out more, meeting new people, learning a different language, going on top of a mountain and all those “YOLO” moments. I feel like I’ve been way too comfortable being where I am or what I do that I stopped living and exploring. There’s so much more in the world that I haven’t seen or learned that I want to start now while I’m still young and active.

SMILE And Exude Positivity || The world is already full of frowns and gnarls. I think it’s best to be one of the few people to spread love and joy. Also, I am just really aiming to be as positive as possible, not only in work but in my personal life as well.

Focus More || on the things that makes me a better person. Also, on my little side business. I’ve relaunched my online store last month. It was one of the things I wanted to achieve this year but I was able to make it happen a little earlier. Which really says a lot, you know? I’ve come to realize that if I really put my heart and mind onto something, I can actually do it. So, I wanna do more stuff like that.

Do What I’ve Always Wanted To Do || need I say more?

Make Someone Happy || I really want to start working on some volunteer works or maybe help a kid go to school. It’s been on my mind lately and I know that I want to make it happen soon. With all the blessings that I receive everyday, it’s only fair to spread it, right? I know Christmas is ove but it’s always nice to be someone’s Santa.

I realized that my goals each year become less on “I wanna have this and that” and more on “I wanna live and be like this and that”. And I think that’s a great start and that’s something most of us should really be doing. It should now be more focused on molding ourselves to become better and wiser. I don’t know if it’s just me but as I grow older, material possesions becomes less attracting to me. I do hope we all share the same sentimens.

So, what are your goals this year?
