I’ve finished taking apart last year (click here if you missed it) and now it is time to turn around and face the year will be.
Before we begin, I want to direct your attention to the following blog because this person, in the latter half of the post, basically spelled out a beautiful way to make her life better. I definitely found it inspiring and unique. It is worth sharing.
Back to me. I don’t have a lot of resolutions. It isn’t a question of not believing in them or not believing in myself. I believe in myself. I just don’t need numerical targets to make my life better in 2017. In 2017, I have just four things I want to work on:
exercise more patience
Too often I lose my temper or become frustrated when things aren’t going my way. It leads to conflict and then problems. I am sure I can do better.
meet more people
This is a challenge for me because I don’t always make a good first impression on people. This could have to do with the last point or something else. When they get to know me, I become a good friend, but that seems to take a lot of time. This year I want to meet people both for friendship and romance. (Just putting that out there universe)
Being negative comes easily to me. Being pessimistic and dwelling on the bad are so easy. While this blog has helped with this tremendously, I know from my time in Japan that one can always make constant improvement.
In the photo I have included above, one of my friends (and biggest crushes) from junior high school noted that even though it was my birthday party, I was the only one not smiling. I hadn’t even noticed it. So this year, smile more. Hopefully it will help with the other points.
