The past year is a rollercoaster of emotions -- I was happy to experience new things last 2013, however, today isn't quite complete because my mom has to rush home to Tacloban to attend her sister's wake (second sibling to die since Yolanda).
Although our family experienced tragedies this past few months, I'm still hopeful that 2014 will turn out to be more beautiful. I hope it will be a pleasant year for you as well.
I'm a huge believer of goals. Some people might call it resolutions, but I choose to call it goals to make it more positive, and more achievable.
Here are the things that I hope to do (or continue to do) this year... and hopefully the years after.
1. Get out of my comfort zone.
Eat something unusual. Create last-minute trips. Move somewhere else. Who knows?
2. Travel alone.
I was supposed to do this last year, unfortunately, I fell ill. I would love to travel alone, maybe back to Cebu? or some new place.
3. Be entreprenerial.
Last year was the birth of dudeygoodies, a joint venture with my dude. :) Thanks to everyone who purchased from us and I apologize for some shortcomings as we are still learning our way through the business. I do hope that this business of ours will be more successful this year.
4. Get healthiER.
The latter part of 2013 is a lifestyle change for me: my daily diet now consists of 2 servings of fruit, 2 servings of veggies, and minimal sugar intake. I have become careful of my carb intake also, and I haven't felt any better.
This isn't just to lose weight, but to take better care of myself. Exercise would be the next goal. AJA!
Also, expect to see more healthy recipes or healthy dishes on this blog.
5. Go back to reading.
I totally missed out on reading last year. I can't promise to do a book challenge, but maybe a book or two a month will do.
6. Learn how to bake.
I'm friends with people who love to bake, and it's a therapeutic activity for them. Also, I would love to learn how to bake my favorite dessert, cheesecake. :p
7. Spend more time with friends -- PHYSICALLY.
Technology now allows us to communicate with anyone real time. However, some people forgot the value of physical interaction. It's wonderful to be out with friends, talking to them face-to-face, beats chatting and texting anytime.
