2017: So many things have happened. I have watched Andy Murray playing tennis live. Golden State Warriors won the NBA Championships. I did a good job. I have travelled with my sisters. I get to know God a little bit better every dayJ. I went to the highest mountain in UAE before year ends. I was hurt by someone so much that I started writing poems/poetry. (Just kidding) I have learned to move on. And then, I have started blogging and writing poems and poetry.
I might say it was a good year for me. And now I am welcoming the New Year with my 2018 goals. (Hoping everything will go well.)
Love, Respect and Treat Myself More.
To not let myself settle for less than I deserve. To make time for myself, to do whatever I love just to play without worrying about the wasting time. Choosing myself even if it means upsetting others even if it means not giving others whatever they want. Building a life that I love while I am still single instead of waiting for my prince to show up, to explore life and to be happy. To forgive myself from my mistakes. Wearing clothes that make me feel good and fit my personality instead of wearing clothes that are in fashion that we use to impress others. To accept and own my inner and outer beauty and to compliment myself without feeling guilty, arrogant or entitled.
To be Healthy and to Work Out More
I admit 2017 was my laziness year to exercise and workout. I was pigging out every weekend. This time I will try to be more conscious of what I eat. To do more work outs meaning to add some workout routine. And it will be the “YOGA”.

I promise myself to save more this year and have some investments. Seriously we have to save and invest ‘coz this is for our retirement. So we don’t have to worry for our future.
Travel and explore
One of my goals this year is to travel and to explore. I want to travel to all the places that are listed on my bucket list. This will be my forever goals. Whether it is inside or outside the country it doesn’t matter as long as I will enjoy and learn every culture of it.
I will try to read at least 1 or 2 books per month. I love books I can read three books in a week or two if I want to and if I’m not doing anything. But to be honest I am not sure if I can read 24 books this year since I am working all day, busy on weekends. (Excuses! Excuses!) I’m still gonna put this on my list though.
Be active on writing
I only write if I’m not emotionally stable. But this year no more excuses. I will make sure to write something every day about my life in a day or if not every day at least twice or thrice a week.
Learn musical instrument
Last year I started learning keyboard lesson on my own. I try it for a month or two I think and then I stop. This year I told myself not stop learning new things. So I’ve decided to study and learn again how to play keyboard.
“It’s okay to be wrong about something and, more importantly, it’s okay to admit that to others. This shows that you not only value your opinion and decisions, but that you also value the opinions and decisions of those around you.”
To have a good relationship with others
It is not easy to maintain and have a good relationship with others especially colleagues. We can’t deny that there is always a competition. But having good relationships give us good benefits: our works is more enjoyable, more fun and admit it less stress. If one of your colleague has an attitude or has negative relationship with you. Make the first move to make the relationship by engaging them in a genuine conversation. Make an effort to get to know to that person. If the person doesn’t want to still show them that you have your respect towards them. Not all relationships will be great but you can make sure that they are, at least, workable!
Leftover No more
I have this never eat the last bite syndrome that I can’t finish my food even if it just a small portion or worst just the last piece. Whenever I’m eating something like a sandwich, cookie, or a meal, anything else you take bites out of, I never eat the last piece. So this year I want to get rid this syndrome. Means not to put too much food on my plate instead put smaller sized portions and go back for more if I’m still hungry.
Spend time with my Family
Since I am an overseas employee I will make it a habit to call my dad or my siblings every weekend to keep in touch with them. ♥
So that’s it! These are my 2018 goals. It would be very nice if you will have a list of your 2018 goals too and share it with us. Who knows maybe I can add your goals to mine as well. J
Let’s make it a habit to write something every year and check it on the end of the year if we made it!
Thanks for reading! ♥
