Two years ago, my goal of the year is to stop being my own biggest critic. And last year, my goal is to be independent. Which Alhamdulillah, I feel that I accomplish both of them. But of course apart of those two, many other goals has failed miserably. Eat more and exercise more are two examples of my failed attempts. Like, look! I only gain 1 kilo after graduating two years ago.
So for this time, I’ll take another way. One of my goals of this year is to cook more. Which probably will resulting on laugh from my family if they heard about this. Because they know, I never have desire to learn to cook before. But to think about that I don’t have any excuse not to try this year, I’ll keep my faith. And hey, I’ve started and it works so far. (:
Anyway apart of feeling thin, in 2016, I somehow also feel that I’m too attached to some believes. So, in 2017 I really want to gain perspectives. Try to understand other people’s background thinking.
For example, I think that I’m too attached to the notion that simple is always better. But, that’s not the case all the time, right? So, I really want to hear another point of view. To try to understand other people’s believes. Doesn’t mean that I want to change mine. I just want to train myself to be more considerate, more understanding.
In another note, my ritual on starting a new year is to think about values that I feel important to me for this year. I never share this before, but I somehow feeling to share it now. So, here are my values of this year in no particular order:
- Connect & talk with more people (challenges my introversion side)
- Don’t be too easy on myself (Discipline myself)
- Be more compassionate to others
- Take care of myself
- Don’t stop learning no matter what
- Manage my financial better
- Cry if I feel so & don’t feel ashamed to tell others about it
- Remember who am I struggling for (Family gotta be number one)
- Eat healthy & exercise
- Enjoy new places
2017, let’s have more fun!
