Happy 2016 guys. Time flew by really fast once you hit your 20’s, right? 2015 was an okay year for me and really, I don’t have so many things to say about it. Yeah I started my own Youtube channel but my channel hasn’t grown that much since I uploaded my first video. I wonder why? I don’t know, sometimes I just feel like I’m not very likeable and my personality is not really inviting. Do you think so? I hope the year of 2016 will be memorable and much more productive than 2015.
Anyway, here are my 2016 resolutions.
1) Be a better wife for my husband and be a better person in general
This is pretty self-explanatory. I can be difficult sometimes, I know. He’s been really patience and I don’t mean to be difficult but sometimes I just don’t know how to control my emotions. Well, I hope this year I will have more self-control and I will learn how to harness my emotions. Easier said than done right?
If you don’t know already, I’m an introvert. I find it really difficult to be in social surrounding and I don’t like when my personal space is ‘invaded’. I wish people can understand that and what make it worse is I can’t tell them how I feel because that can really hurt their feelings. I guess I have to learn to be more accepting and accept that I can’t always have what I want.
2) Be consistent
When I say consistent, I mean consistent in every aspects of my life. I want to upload video on my Youtube channel regularly (once a week) and I want to update this blog at least twice a week. I want to cook at least 4 times a week. Read one book a month. Go to the gym at least 3 times a week.
3) Put more effort to my Youtube channel and my blog
I thought that I have given so much to my Youtube channel but apparently that’s not enough. I still need to find the key to make it work and how to attract people to watch my video and subscribe to me.
4) Lead a healthy life
I’m in my early 30’s and yes that’s not young. I still have a lot that I want to achieve in my life and that’s why my health is my priority. I have started going to the gym last September and somehow I felt happier since then. I don’t know how to explain it but I think it must be because I found a way to channel out almost my entire ‘bad’ aura. Also, I want to tone up few parts of my body. Haha.
The only thing that I find hard to do is changing my diet. I ate a lot of unhealthy foods because they’re so easy to access. I need to cook more at home and stock up my pantry with more healthy foods.
5) Save more money and travel the world
Yes, be more responsible with my spending so that I can explore the world.
6) Be happy, be more grateful and stop comparing myself to others
This is the hardest thing for me to do. I always find myself unhappy and despising my life. I think the root of this problem is I like to compare myself with others. I should be happy with what I have and if I want something I should work for it and if that’s something that I can’t change, I should accept it with an open mind. I should focus on things that I should be grateful for. I have a loving husband, I still have my mom to love me unconditionally, I have a cat that thinks I’m her life and I have a job that pays the bill. But why I’m still unhappy? I’m still seeking for happiness and I hope the year of 2016 I can find some of it.
7) Be confidence
Ugh, this is another struggle for me. I used to have great confidence but something happened in my life, which I’m not sure what and since then my confidence level is going downhill. I know that this has prevented from moving forward and I’m afraid of challenges most of the times. If you know one or two things about confidence, I would appreciate your two cents in this matter. TIA
8) Make more friends
I know this is weird to hear from a self-proclaimed introvert but I truly want to make more friends. I want to have somebody that I can share my problems with and teach me things.
I don’t know if I ever tell you this but I think it’s not easy for people to understand me because I’m quite secretive about some parts of my life. I guess in order for me to make more friends, I have to slowly open the door for people to be of my humble life.
9) Find happiness
People say if you hate your job, quit it. Do something that can give you satisfaction and means something to you. I don’t know whether I have the courage to do that or not. There are so many things to consider.
I’m just curious whether I have readers who have quit their jobs and doing something they love. How do you take the first step? Let me know.
I think 9 New Year resolutions are enough for now. I have to keep looking back at this post so that I won’t forget and to keep on track. What are your New Year resolutions?
