New Year. New Resolutions. New Me.

Happy New Year, Folks!

The year 2017 was fun. It became extra special with Zayer’s birth. One thing was sure. I wasn’t going back to the corporate world anytime soon. With two kids under two, and no family around to help with kids, I decided to stay home and captain my babyship. However, a person like me cannot stay at home, raise kids and do nothing else.

A person like me has a brain that is multi-tasking and strategizing on multiple fronts, at all times. A person like me constantly needs a creative outlet. A person like me cannot be defined by just one role in life. I enjoy motherhood and I am very proud of myself for doing a fairly decent job raising my two boys. BUT. I want to do more in my life, with my life.

Last year, I decided to take up my blogging seriously. I have had a blog for more than 4 years but I neglected it, severely. I started working on it again last August and this time, I wanted to do it right. For last 4 months, I actively started posting on my blog and even took up Instagram to make it all the more fun. I made amazing new friends and met with some super awesome bloggers. All in all, last year ended on a very good note.

Now this year, I have some new plans and I want to list them down. I want to do that so I can go back to this list every few months, and see how I am doing. More so, I am making this list public so I can hold myself accountable. The last time I did something like this was a 30 day fitness challenge. I made it public and then I stuck to it for full 30 days.

Going from 30 days to 365 days of sticking to something or a couple of things is huge. It will be a daunting task but there is no knowing how we fare until we try. So, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, in the most cliched manner possible, my New Year’s Resolutions.

Things to Accomplish in the Year 2018

  1. Exercise 5 times a week
  2. Lose 8 kgs (17 pounds)
  3. Write something meaningful everyday
  4. Pray at least once a day
  5. Be less Angry and more Patient
  6. Stay more Happy and less Anxious
  7. Praise more and Judge less
  8. Help more and Envy less
  9. Love more and Grudge less
  10. Give more and Expect less
  11. Focus on important things in life
  12. Manage relationships (discard unhealthy ones, nurture new ones, and maintain old ones)

These are some of the things I want to work on in 2018. These are some of the things that will hopefully make me a better person than I am today. I think it is safe to say, these are the things that anyone can choose to work on to become a better human being. So in short, my new year’s new resolution is to become a better me.

What are your resolutions for this year? Can you relate with mine?

Love & Peace.

    Hi Majdy 🙂 I hope you’ll have a great 2018. I can relate to your posts and it’s nice to know that you’re a balancing motherhood and other activities – I am also blogging for a very long time and like you – I tend to neglect it but it’s time to maintain it and actively blog about life in general – I think that would be one of my resolutions this year.

      Hi Abi, it’s so nice to see another mom relating to my situation. Let’s make a pact that we will regularly keep some time aside to post something meaningful on our blogs every other day, if not every day. 🙂

      Let’s stay in touch! :*

    I have not made an actual list, this is such a good idea.
