2013 passed in a flash and welcome 2014.
I’m sure a lot of us were busy with our new year resolution. (Some of us cheekily said that their new year resolution will be 1920×1080). I was still in my holiday when I should do my new year resolution. So I’ll be a little bit behind in my resolution and stuffs.
I decided to start my year with 10 reflections from 2013.
- When you give too many reasons to not do something, means it’s not important to you. If it’s important, you’ll do it, despite you may face lots of challenges.
- Have a discussion with your head and your heart. Your head helps to evaluate all the factors but sometimes its decision is something that your heart doesn’t want to do. And your heart is where the “fuel” to keep moving forward. The passion. So, if your heart in doubts, give yourself more time to think about it. We are not racing against anyone, most of the times we just race with ourselves. But, be discipline.
- Be bold in telling others what you want. It’s ok to be different. Along the way you’ll find good “gems” (read: friends) who can accept who you are. And those who aren’t, it’s their loss.
- Don’t let other voice bring you down. We are all adaptable being. When in Rome, be a Romans. But, filter out what suits you and what don’t. So, even if it’s the “norm” to complain, doesn’t mean you should become a complainer too.
- Social media and messenger are great tool to know how other people are doing. But it also a tool that commonly people use to show off or complain. So, use it wisely.
- Do things that make you feel satisfied, not to satisfy others. There are too many out there to be pleased and we won’t have enough power to please everyone.
- Be a tourist. Even though you’re in your hometown. You’ll be surprise that you can see that place a lil different.
- Know what you’re good at and polish it. It’s easier than to work out on our weaknesses.
- Find your inspiration or idol. It can be a motivational quotes or someone you admire. Everyone face different hardships but knowing that they can after putting the effort is a reminder for us, sometimes it’s too soon to give up.
- Create a list or diary or scribbles. When you’re running out of idea or activity to do, open it up and just pick one random from it.
One last thing, sometimes people just telling you something for the sake of saying something. I used to feel stress when people told me something because I feel obliged to do it or feel that they expect me to do it. After sometime, I learn how to respond to it. Sometimes I just listen to them, take a note of it and I don’t feel guilty about it (it also relate to my previous post).
I wrote this on my way back from Melbourne to Singapore. The words seems flowing out after having my holiday. It took me awhile to revise the sentence and the format (oops).
