2017 is upon us and it's time to leave these baggage behind in 2016 where they belong.
Actually. Just needed a reason to use the new animated stickers I bought. LOLOL.
I know I've said that I'm not doing a resolutions post but…
I strongly believe in setting small and measurable goals to help myself improve as a human being over the years.
Read back on my post last year – @joycesayshello:020116 and realised that I've achieved everything except "less eyeliner more mascara". Hahahah. On hindsight, eyeliner is better la. Mascara very hard to clean off at the end of the day. 😂
(Trying out this linking back to past entries thing cause I read it on @blog and OMG IT WORKS IDK WHY I'M SO AMAZED BUT I AM!)
It doesn't work when I set resolutions like "procrastinate less" because it's too general and not too realistic. Lol.
After years of setting useless resolutions, I realise that you gotta be specific! Goals can be small but as long as it's an improvement, it's good enough. 👍🏻
First order of business – having a clutter free Dropbox! ✔️
I don't think it can get anymore specific than this. Hahahaha.
I heavily depend on Dropbox for work but as yknow… I'm not the most organised person around. 😳
My poor Dropbox has been in a state of disarray for as long as I can remember. It's like having an extremely messy file cabinet but in virtual form.
It's gonna take more than a couple of hours for me to declutter it. But I think upkeeping is the more challenging part HAHAHA.
Keep up with my current fitness routine. ✔️
I'm quite pleased with my fitness level right now and I fully intend to keep it this way!
Made some changes to my diet (more greens less junk from 2015 resolutions did come true!!) and increased the frequency of my workout sessions towards the end of 2016 and I like what I'm seeing hehe.
Hopefully 2017 brings me a more toned body and better health on the whole! 👌🏻
I just gotta keep an eye on my diet when I travel since I tend to slip off my routine when I'm having too much fun on holidays.
Drink at least 2 litres of water every day. ✔️
I realise I'm quite horrible at this. If I don't make a conscious effort to drink water, I don't do it until I feel thirsty. Which means that I'm already dehydrated or something right…?
Anyway. Gonna make it a habit to drink water at regular intervals throughout the day!
Get better at adulting. ✔️
This sounds general so I'm gonna narrow it down to paying my bills on time and getting my finances in order.
I know that this is an area which is lacking effort on my part so I shall improve on this in 2017! 💪🏻
Have dinner at home at least once a week. ✔️
This week, I already had dinner at home on Tuesday! 👍🏻
2016 was a flurry of after work activities for me. I was either meeting friends for dinner, heading to the gym or doing something else. I hardly ate at home but whenever I do, I get reminded of how awesome home-cooked food taste.
Here's to more dinners at home in 2017!
Dayre about the smallest, inconsequential moments. ✔️
I had some time the past few days to scroll through my old Dayre posts and I realise that I don't even remember what I typed. Hahahah. I felt like I was reading through someone else's Dayre and it was quite surreal. Like… Did I really pull those words out of my head? Was I really feeling like that on that particular day?
At some point in time, I didn't really wanna post about random things that went on in my day because I feel like nobody would be interested to read about them.
But then I decided that there's nothing wrong either if I decided to post just for my own sake. In fact, I feel the most comfortable that way.
I feel immensely glad that my random thoughts and small moments throughout the years (zomg I started back in Nov 2013!!!) were recorded down on my Dayre. Otherwise they will probably be lost forever.
So I guess you'll be seeing a lot more personal moments here on my Dayre!
More self love. ✔️
Sometimes I feel like I overextend myself too much and say yes too many times to too many people.
I feel like self love is something that I'm still not good at doing. But never mind, I have this one year to work on it and become good at it!
