I knew how my last year was😪, and I was so ready when this year came forth. I resolved not to ever do some things again–those things I struggled with the year before.
This is not a gag, you need a tough “why” to be able to commit yourself to self-development. Else, you won’t be serious about it. Well, I found mine…there it was in imaginary bold letters right before my eyes, “Be your dream woman” (This is a story for another day).
So at a point, I woke up that morning, picked up my pen and made a list of things I want and do not want to do for a very fine year (Like this year was supposed to be the happening year. I mean…you know what happened. It’s still very fine though).
So, back to my list. Here are the 5 things I won’t do again (I have been stern with my good-riddance-to-bad-rubbish waves). I promised:
1. Not To Be Broke
This right here is a tough one, and it has always been top of my list for ages. Haha! I don’t even know how I pull it off. Life could get crazy at times, I have so much today, and I wake up tomorrow… And poof, I’m like ” where the hell did all my money go?😱😭.” If you do your best to sustain yourself like me, I am giving you a virtual hug right now. No matter your level now, you are doing great…so let’s do more.
What job do I do? How do I plan my finance? The first way not to go broke is to find a way to earn. For me, I do freelance writing. Then, I plan, and budget my spending.
2. Not To Overfeed
Overeating for me, is a thing, don’t feel sorry for me though. I know this probably sounds like some crazy “goal”, like…how would anyone want to mark this in their to-dos? Well, I want to! Don’t tell anyone.
So, the real thing is either I don’t eat at all, or I feed myself till my belly begins to cry. I used to find it hard to eat enough and not more…but now I am winning in this war against overfeeding. Anyways, I just made a control routine thingy to prevent overeating since I am all for fitness especially flat tommy. Check out my control routine for overeating!
3. Not To Wake Up By 9am Again
I said to myself “Sally, don’t ever wake up by this time again, unless, of course, you attended a vigil.” I don’t know if I should pride myself on this but I am a night owl. I can stay up all night, and sleep at dawn. Sometimes, I sleep early and still wake up when my whole morning has almost passed away. Haha. Crazy right?
Here is the good news! I have been doing better. I am an early riser now, and I am so proud of myself. I wake up early, have my quiet time, read a while, workout, and still beat 9am…I am a superwoman!
4. Not To Procrastinate
I used to deserve an award for this, I am a changed person now. Don’t postpone your life plans…what’s the point anyways? The time won’t stop ticking. If it couldn’t wait for me when I was a little girl with the broken teeth who had a hard time pronouncing “fluffy”🙄? I don’t think it will for you.
More realistically, I don’t think it will for anyone, honey! If you want to start something, just do! I waited too long to say “hello there! I am a Freelance Content Writer for hire“, but don’t be like that. We drag important stuff cause we think too much, just act!
5. Not To Wish More Than I Do
I wake up those times, feel so elated in my spirit and keep wishing for all my big fat dreams to come true. I used to wish I could have enough money to do whatever. If you are like that me (not this me). Start acting!!! Rather stay the whole day fantasizing when you aren’t even a creative writer or artist, let those wishes put you to work instead.
I am still improving. As my Rome won’t get built in one day, I need solid walls that won’t ever come crumbling down. So, I want you to have a “why”, that is, what keeps you going; fight every goal-block. Just focus on self-development.
What things did you too promise yourself not to do in 2020?😃
