It’s 4 days into the new year and I’m finally sitting myself down to write my resolutions for 2015. As I’ve mentioned on my Instagram account, 2014 feels like such a blur and I can’t believe how fast the year passed. I did so many things last year and I’m so thankful for all the amazing opportunities and experiences. 2014 was a year of learning, growing, settling down and what-I-call, transitioning into ‘adulthood’. It was a year which I learned a lot more about myself. It was also a year of risk-taking and chasing my dream with Wardrobe Theory. It’s been quite a year and 2014 feels like a lead up to a huge year that I’m going to have this year.
I’ve got a new house coming, a wedding and a business to build in 2015. Major stuff. To be honest, I get scared sometimes thinking of these big things that will be happening, but I constantly remind myself not to be with one of my favourite quotes, ‘a head full of fears has no space for dreams; fate favours the fearless’. To help myself get there to fulfil my goals and dreams, I’ve set a couple of resolutions.
1. Be more discipline. This is a broad resolution that will help me achieve what I want to achieve this year. I think this practise should apply to all aspects in my life – to be more disciplined with checking off to-do lists and getting work done, be more disciplined with exercising, be more disciplined at motivating myself, and to be disciplined to not procrastinate. I read somewhere that one habit of successful people is to not procrastinate the small things, and to do them immediately to clear them out of the way. If it takes less than 2 minutes, then do it now. I’ve been trying to practise this habit since 2014 and I’ve been feeling more accomplished already.
2. Stay positive and be happy. This year, I want to learn to stay positive even in the most dire of situations and to enjoy and be happy with the small things. I’d like to think that I’m usually quite positive, but I have to admit that I do let things get to me and get me down sometimes. I’d like to change that this year and make the most of everyday.
3. Eating healthier and exercising. Now that I’m a bit older, I’m seeing and feeling how this can impact and affect my overall well-being. I’m not one to abstain completely from certain types of ‘bad food’. Knowing how much I like to eat junk food and sweets, it’ll be impossible for me to not have them completely. I’d probably go crazy with the cravings one day and overstuff my face with sweets if I do that. I believe in moderation and hope to do more of that this year and be more consistent with inculcating foods like fruits in my diet. Of course, I try…but I do hope to exercise at least twice a week consistently this year too. I do want a lean body in time for my wedding at the end of the year!
4. Spend more time with my family. I’m usually so busy that family sometimes takes a back seat in my life. I have to remind myself that whilst I’m trying to achieve things for myself, my parents and people around me are also not getting any younger. If I don’t treasure the times with them now, then when?
I end this post with another of my favourite quotes. What are some of your resolutions for 2015?
