My New Year's Resolutions

I know this post is quite late for a New Year's Resolutions list but then again I needed more time to sort out my priorities and at the same time, be more realistic of the things I can accomplish and the things that I need to work on.

Sunrise, signals for a new beginning. A new chance to make things right.

My Faith - I finally had the courage to let go. It was a very difficult decision to make but you can never expect that every result comes with happiness. I may not be happy today but I'm sure tomorrow will be a better day. I feel lighter and I know I can finally move forward. I open up and keep the good relationship with the Lord. This has brought me closer to him and closer to my family. I always put in mind that I am not alone in doing the things I need to do.

1.   Let go of the things that hold you back from moving forward
2.   Make the right decisions in life
3.   Stick to your choices
4.   Maintain the good relationship with God
5.   Keep the communication open with your parents

My Health - There is always this constant struggle between living healthy and eating whatever. I have a working mom and I know it can be tiring for her to cook when she comes home from her office. We always dine out and it can be unhealthy. Because of that, we lack exercise. I am also big on sweets, my mom always threatens me with the risk Diabetes! :( So instead of waiting what's on the table, I should just learn how to cook more complex meals that would make us stay away from unhealthy food.

6.   Avoid Fast food at all costs
7.   Learn to cook more home-cooked meals
8.   Exercise often to stay fit and healthy
9.   Be more skin and hair care conscious
10. Control your intake of chocolates

My Relationship with People - I have a very bad temper and I tend to abandon people at times. The only thing that keeps my temper at bay is my very long Patience. Whew! I have to learn to keep stretching it so I don't hurt the people around me. I also prefer to be alone most of the time because I enjoy my privacy than my friends and loved ones but I don't realize the things that I have been missing out a lot. I am actually making a good progress on this and hopefully this will continue.

11. Keep your temper low
12. Stop leaving people behind
13. Be more wary of the things you say
14. Stay professional
15. Spend more time with friends and family

My Growth and Maturity - I am going to enroll in Med School this coming June. It has always been my dream to become a doctor. I know it's not easy, it might actually be the worse mental torture that will happen to me yet. However, I know my passion will get me through and I have to prepare well. Therefore, I need to discipline my happy-go-lucky self to work harder and stop doubting my capabilities. I promised myself that I will make a difference one day.

16. Stop being late
17. Read more, learn more
18. Don't doubt your abilities
19. Keep yourself focused
20. Never give up on your dreams
