5 Goals for 2018 to Achieve

Happy New Year everyone!

I know, I am a bit late for greeting you. Christmas and New Year were a busy time for me. You know how it was. Besides having a mini job as a wellness massage therapist, I was getting slow as a snail in doing what I did for that time of the year. 2017 was so fast I should say. Many things happened but I am thankful to God for all the blessings that I have received.

Do you have a new years resolution? As we have a new year, many friends of mine are making their resolutions. I hope they will be successful in achieving them. I don´t do any new years resolution. However, I do set goals every year and try to fulfill them. Have you listed your goals this year 2018?

5 Goals for 2018 to Achieve

1. Keep my mouth shut whenever negative thoughts come to my mind. I should try not to give a negative opinion to whoever asks me. 

This would be very hard as I would be lying. I don´t like to lie as well as I don´t like liars. What about if someone says, "how do I look? I have painted my eyebrows." What should I say? If that girl looks like a monkey with that new fashion looking painted eyebrows? Shall I tell the truth?

I think, in this case, I will be back to my teenage self and tell the girl that she looks good although I find it awful. Maybe I should say, you look more beautiful the way you look before.

2. Working hard for the money and travel for months. No suffering, no reward but hey, who suffers here? I love my mini job and I enjoy it. This is the longest job I have in life. It would be great having months of vacation in a tropical country of my choice. Digging the soil in my tropical garden will be enough reward for the hard earn Dinero. Well, besides other things I have missed.

3. Writing, writing and writing. Maybe to cash out much more from writing. Having this goal, I have to discipline myself and make a schedule. This is one of the hardest things I have to do as I am sometimes lazy and just want to relax in our electric massage chair while reading. Talking about writing, Valentines Day is fast approaching and I have to write a blog about love. I wonder what title I will have. Do you have any idea?

4. Enjoy life as it is. Avoid worrying about anything that might happen which is not of my choice and which I can not control. Be happy. Nobody does that for me. Sometimes, being selfish is good.

5. Stay healthy as much as possible. It is not nice to get sick without a caring mother on my side. Love and care your mother. You will never find another like her.

I have set a lot of goals this year but I don´t write all of them as they might go down the drain again like last year and the other years that past.

Anyway, how´s life in your neck of the woods? Did you set a goal for yourself?

  2. For #1 you could tell her, "Well, I don't really like it, but if you do that's all that matters." And I'm with you on #3. I need to write more on schedule. Its one of the resolutions I set for myself this year too!

    1. Hi Nona! Happy New Year 2018. Well, I could say that #1 advice of yours if someone will ask me again. I hope we could do the #3. Schedule, descipline and perseverance. Thanks for your comment. Take care.
