I don’t really believe in new year resolutions. I mean, if you wanted to make something happen, it doesn’t matter when you make it, as long as you follow through. But I thought I should just write this entry for a future self. More importantly, for you since I want to spread this positive state of mind around.
In the new decade, I want to:
There are so many things in the world and I only got a few decades left to learn them all. So I hope I will never become a pompous fool and stop learning.
Share the love
I love being with people. I love meeting new people. I love forging stronger bonds with people. It brings meaning to my life. It brings meaning to people’s lives. Sure, there will be times when it will drain me but I still hope I will never stop believing in love.
After all, love is a powerful energy that can bring out the best in society.
Bring social back to social media
I’m no expert in the social media field, and I’m not sure anyone can call himself one since this is a field in a constant state of evolution.
Recently, I noticed that social media has recently become more about money. So I’d like to help bring the social back to social media. Sure, you can make money but let’s not forget that it’s also a great avenue to widen your social circle. And a happy life isn’t all about materialistic goals.
Sometimes it’s the immaterial ones that will bring you the greatest joy.
Balance work and life
This might be difficult since it’s not entirely in my control. Since I started working a little over a year ago, I realized I never really took a break from work. A lot of times I gave up my sanity, my friends or my family for work. I need to learn to set the boundaries and balance my life better.
Know and love myself
As a third culture kid, I’ve had a hard time to come to terms with my identity. I always felt like I lacked a sense of belonging and a sense of self.
And as a person, I shunned my body for my thyroid problems. I shunned the little girl in me for wanting to be loved. I shunned the pride in me for never wanting to look weak in front of others. I shunned the anger in me for being uh… angry.
But recently, I’ve come to accept myself for who I am. And I’ve never been happier! No, it doesn’t mean I should become an angry, sick egotistic bitch. It means taking responsibility for my body, my mind and my soul.
And I hope I never, ever forget that.
