First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope you had a blast welcoming the year Two Thousand Seventeeeeeeeeen!
Have you made your resolutions yet? It could be a myriad list of ambitious endeavours like going to the gym, travelling to places, or perhaps, starting to eat healthy, and so on. And most likely, you may be wondering how to stick to fulfilling your resolutions? It helps to have a mindset first! And my mindset for 2017 is: Let’s make it happen!
Creating a mindset first: Let’s make it happen!
It was in 2011 that I started to formulate a mindset. I found myself set on a certain mindset which is brought about by where my life then was currently at and was likely heading to. I started with saying ‘I vow to love myself’. And by vowing to love myself, I learned how to take care of myself, tried new skills, focused on my career, and so on.
In 2012, the mindset was ‘Go with the flow’. It was then I “think” that the major aspects in my life were slowly taking shape. The previous year 2011 was a year of hard work and improving myself and I felt 2012 should be a year of enjoying, letting things fall into place, and just going with the flow. 2013 came, I found myself with the same mindset. Then 2014, 2015, and 2016. And here’s 2017. Surprisingly, I find myself in a different mindset, which is ‘Let’s make it happen!’ Yup the exclamation point included.
This year, I foresee myself taking on more than one role and wearing quite a few hats more than my fingers could count.
- Very soon, we will relocate to another place. This entails starting from scratch and working harder. And even before relocating, the planning stage can be overwhelming. By the grace of God, we hope and will try to make them all happen.
- Also, I want to make my blogging venture not another quit venture. I hope to grow this blog, and grow myself from it. I hope to write down more of our memories and experiences as a family. Years from now, we would want to be able to look back on these precious times through this blog.
- As a new mom, I face many challenges and roadblocks along the way. By the grace of God and intercession from the Blessed Virgin Mary, I hope to become the best mother that my daughter could have.
So let the year begin and let’s make it happen, one day at a time! And always always always, I entrust our plans and hearts’ desires in the hands of God and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. My strength is weak, my wisdom is frail, my defence so crumbled. But with heaven’s help, we are always made strong from our trials, wise in our actions, and defended from the snares of the devil. Amen!
How about you mommies? Do you have a mindset for 2017?
