This is the sixth day of 2016. Not too late for a little talk about resolutions, right?
As a person who loves to make list and plan everything (I even make plan to make plans), new year resolutions are totally my thing. Since I was 15 years old, I think, I had made plans about the better version of me in the following year. Of course, some plans took more than a year to be done. I didn’t even remember that I once planned them when I finally achieved the ones I planned to get. Haha.
However, on the night when fireworks woke me up at 00.00 on the first day of 2016, I had no resolutions at all. Life has been so good to me lately. I am happy and content with the life I am living (finally, this kind of feeling!), something that I consider to be the most important thing to achieve in personal life, so I don’t feel the urge to make list about what to fix about myself.
But it is not me if I can’t find what to fix about my very own life. Yesterday I came up with a list consisted of 39 things I needed to do in 2016. The list includes more books, increased wellness, being discipline, and the most important: BEING PRESENT.
Being present has been my resolution since 2015 and I failed gracefully. I spread myself too thin, had a lot in my plate, and in a condition where you are supposed to be in two places at one time, it is impossible to be present at all. I need to fix this. I actually really want to be able to be present all the time, or at least when I am with the ones I love, so I decide to put “BE PRESENT” again in my resolution list this year. Wish me luck!
Also, on the second day of 2016, I scrolled down my e-mail inbox and found one interesting mail from Huffington Post. It has a 30-day challenge of happiness. Of course I signed up! Will write about this later. 🙂
Anyway, what do you have in your list?
Wish you a good year ahead,
