Have you ever felt like you are not doing enough?
I mean that feeling when you know you can do so much better but you’re not?
This post was supposed to be out since January but I wasn’t able to put it all together till now because I didn’t know what I wanted to achieve by the end of this year.
Last year was honestly one of the worst years of my life.
I started college which made me homesick, I used to get sad over little things and I felt quite insecure because I was adding weight, breaking out like crazy and of course, I was broke.
After meditating for At least one hour every day, I was able to figure out things I want to accomplish and how I want to my life to be from now on.
Here are the things I want to accomplish before the year 2019 runs out:
Get closer and closer to God:
We only live once And one of the main reason we are here is to worship God.
I realize that when you make God happy, he will surely make you happier. He knows what is in our heart and what is bothering us.
Cry to him and watch him change your situation. And I am a firm believer of the saying “prayer changes destiny” so from now on, God will be my number one priority and I think he should be yours as well.
Take college more serious:
To be honest, I wasn’t really serious in my first year and it affected my CGPA. I know if I had studied, my results would’ve been so much better.
This year, I plan to work twice or even thrice as hard as I did last year.
The last thing I will want to do is to disappoint my parents because they know I am smart and I am capable of excelling in my academic life.
This semester, I shall rise again. Somebody should pour yeast on me. (I really really hope you got the joke here and I laughed 🙂 )
Get closer to my EXTENDED family:
This is soo important for me because I literally don’t know half of my extended family members, especially from my father’s side.
I will try and visit my hometown more often and get to know them more because family is everything.
I started this blog in November last year and I was very serious about it during the December period and my traffic was very high like it smoked weed (another joke).
Unfortunately since January, I wasn’t able to focus on it and everything started falling apart.
My traffic is now very low and this place feels so lonely. This year I want to grow it big enough to serve as my side job(something I want to be earning from).
I will try and be more consistent, try and put out the best content and work on my strategies. I mean if others can do it, why can’t I?
Get rid of my bad habits:
There are some bad habits that keep me away from achieving my goals such as laziness and procrastination.
These have been my major problem but I am trying so hard to get rid of them.
I am gradually getting rid of my laziness by giving myself tasks every day that I must achieve before the end of the day. Honestly, nothing feels better than checking off things from your checklist.
As for procrastination, I try to do things immediately I get them. That’s has been helping me a lot.
I have also started trying so hard to sleep early and wake up early so that I will have enough time to get things done.
I now watch my weight and control the kind of things I take into my system. For example, I was able to cut off soda! The last time I took soda was since last year and the feeling is amazing. If you want to know how I was able to do that, let me know.
Make more friends, be more confident and less shy:
This is something that I have struggled with and I am still struggling with since I was a child.
I find it extremely hard to make new friends. Maybe it’s because I am very shy and I hardly go for any social events but I seriously need to work on that.
I want to build my confidence and get rid of my insecurities first because I feel like that will help me a lot.
Help more people:
If there is one thing I am proud of myself, it’s the fact that I never hesitate to give out what I have or to help others. But I currently feel like I can do so much better and I want to work on that.
I want to be helping with charity works, giving out more donations and assisting others that don’t even have to be less privileged than I am. For example, I want to donate my blood to someone who is in desperate need of it. Although I am scared of needles, I will try my best to overcome that fear and give it a go because I am a strong independent woman that can achieve anything I put my mind to(daily positive affirmation is very important!)
The reason I had this post up was to serve as a source of inspiration for you.
I want you to write down things you want to accomplish before the year ends without worrying about the goals being too big or not achievable and watch them become reality one after the other if you’re willing to work hard and stay committed.
What’s your major goal this year? Let me know in the comments section.
