The holiday break has given me enough time to think about how I can make things better. Although the break didn’t give me much time to rest, since hands-on moms & homemakers like me don’t really get a break do we? 🙂 Nonetheless, it has given me the chance to asses myself and what I can improve for 2014.
Out of all the positive, inspiring resolutions we always tend to make every New Year, I have chosen just one word to summarize what I want for this year.
This 2014, my aim is to FOCUS.
Multitasking and worrying about the never ending things I need to do and finish had got me really exhausted after the holiday hullabaloo. Thus, I have contemplated over the thing I really want to achieve this year and that is to focus.
I will start by focusing on what really matters to me. Everything else, I will just regard to as noise. As what I learned while watching The Carrie Diaries, it doesn’t matter what people say or think about you if they’re not important to you. In order to live the life that you want, you gotta learn how to choose. Choose your battles, know when to let go and to eliminate those that suck out the happiness in you. This thought got stuck on me like gum on my favourite pair of shoes, which I couldn’t remove.
This year I will learn how to focus. Focus on appreciating my kids, on living a comfortable life, on really making an effort to be healthy, on having abs (push na tooooh), on letting go, on being nicer to those I know I don’t like & those who dislike me, on appreciating even the simplest and little things that’s part of my life, on what I have, on striving to be a better blogger, homemaker, and woman. All I needed to do is focus on these things in order for me to be happier and fulfilled.
I believe if I master the art of focusing on what’s important, then everything else will be easier. Most of the time I really get caught up with the whole “Super Mom” role where I really try to do things all at the same time, if not cram all errands & chores in a day, that I forget to spend more quality time with my kids and to enjoy what I do & complaining about being constantly tired, and other petty things that I couldn’t easily let go of last year.
This year, Keber Ravena na sa mga (I don’t care about) stress factors na yan. I am a super woman but I do get tired too, so I will just focus on doing what I can at present and let go of the OC feeling I get whenever I can’t put on my cape and be Wonder Woman, este super, Superwoman pala.
No resolutions for me this year. I’m keeping it simple by starting each year with one inspiring word at a time.
Let’s make 2014 meaningful & fruitful. What’s your word of the year? 🙂
