2017 RESOLUTIONS


Hey, folks! How are you guys doing? I wished everyone Happy New Year 2017, though I'm a little bit late. I was going to post this after Christmas, and I did write half way of this post, but I don't know what have gotten into me. Suddenly, I don't have a mood to write at all then I just keep this post until now. Not sure if people still reading my post but hey I'm here anyway :)

New Year means new resolution. All my blogger friends make their new year resolution, so I wanted to make one too. So here are my 2017 resolution:

SAVING MONEY: Seriously, I'm so bad at saving money, especially, when I start to shop online. I spent way too much money last month. I overspent my money with unnecessary stuff. I NEED TO STOP BUYING JUNK and invest my money in fewer things that I will use and keep for a long time. 

I'm not hoping that I'm not going to touch my money because I still need to pay my bills, but I hope that I can control myself from spending money. I have a monthly budget Excel document that I update bi-weekly, so I know where my money is going and can pull back if anything looks out of control.

BE EARLY: Sleep early, wake up early and go to work early. I have been struggling to wake up early since I'm still in college. Even though I sleep early at night, I still can't wake up early. I'm just NOT a morning person. I usually wake up at 6.45 am - 7.11 am and get into my office 8.15 am - 8.30 am. I've tried to set the alarm and placing away my phone farther away from my bed; I did get out of bed to turn off my alarm, but after that, I went back to my bed and then sleep lol. I always remind myself at night to wake up at 6 am and off to work at least at 7 am because I need to get in the office by 8 am, but who am I kidding? And I need to stop hitting snooze for real. 

DRINK WATER: I can go on a day without drinking water. I only drink lime juice before I get off from my house, coffee for breakfast and that's it. When it's lunch time, I usually drink my cold coffee (coffee from morning). I got an app on my phone that reminds me to drink water, so I don't forget to drink. I did very well at first, and then I started to slacking. 

DRIVE SAFE: Oooohhh boy, I'm going to admit that I'm not a good driver. I already hit people's car for a few times, I tend to get too close to edges, speeding, I'm always trying to beat the yellow/red light. But when I'm with my mom or my dad, I'm such a good driver lol. I hope this year I'll be a good driver than last year, No phone or trying to eat something while driving :)

READ MORE: I haven't read any English books since I left my high school. But after seeing Fatin, Siqah, Erin, Liyana, etc. blogger, posted about their reading books every month, (especially Fatin) I thought that it is time for me to start to read books. So, last month and this month, I bought so many books lol. For this year, my reading target is 30 books. Hopefully, my reading challenge for 2017 will succeed.

SOCIAL MEDIAs: Not going to spend too much time with social media such as Facebook, Twitter, WeChat, and Instagram. And I've been thinking to delete all my social medias account, but I guess I'll never do it. Because y'know, I'm not good at catching up with my friends or my family, so from social media (Facebook), I can see how are they doing and so on :) 

BE A BETTER PERSON: 

  • Talk less, listen more 
  • Let go of anger - Letting go of anger is easier said than done. It's extremely difficult skill to master. 
  • Forgive people - I easily forgive people actually, but there are few people that hard for me to forgive them, even it's been a long time. Oh well, I'm still holding the grudges.
  • Stop making excuses - I made excuses every time something went wrong. Instead of pointing fingers and making excuses, I am going to learn to own my mistakes and learn from them.
  • Be honest, be helpful, always be polite and be respectful.
Last but not least, I wanted to be kind to myself. Stay healthy, stop thinking it's too late, stop complaining, stop the negative self-talk, stop allowing toxicity in my life and the list goes on. 

That's my 2017 resolutions! ;) and here's my family 2017 New Year picture <3
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM US!
