How did it go with your 2012 resolutions?
I used to outline my goals and try to plan towards them yearly. I did have short term goals that I visited monthly (and even weekly) but I never really saw them as resolutions. I didn't really toe the line of new year resolutions until last year when I decided to use the avenue to address somethings I believed I really needed to deal with. Needless to say some of them were not so easy, but one thing I like to tell myself is that 'I'm not a quitter'. I do not even like to do things haphazardly. It is usually either an 'I'm in' or 'I'm out' thing for me. I try to paddle things to the end, no matter how hard they may seem. I did with my 2012 resolutions.
I decided to revisit some of the most interesting ones and I'd love to share them with y'all.
Well, this is how it went for me
1. I promised to put more time into building a steady relationship with God. I would say I have really grown from where I started from, but indeed for this, I think one can never truly say that they are done. I still believe that it can never be enough, not forgetting also that every little step was purely by his grace. There is still so much room for improvement, and I pray that his grace will always lead me on and on.
2. I wanted to leave my comfort zone more. When I settle in a place, I settle. I try to carve a home for myself wherever I find myself and it could take a while to spread my 'Jan-ity' around a place to make it feel like home. Once, I manage to do that, I usually do not like to move. I don't even want to risk the inconveniences of trying something different.
This year, however, I did travel more.
The part I hate the most is the process of applying for visas especially, but this year I actually applied for a couple, just for the sole purpose of planning a trip to visit the place and not out of obligation. Trust me, that was a feat :)
3. I wanted to learn to face my fears. Most of them led me to battling with procrastination head on. I tried, I tried hmm
Sometimes, it wasn't exactly easy but the fact that I was able to make every single move I made in 2012 just goes to show that there has been a steady case of conquering it. There is still room for improvement tho, and I hope that I can scale that soon.
How did yours go? Another year is fast approaching in a matter of minutes, do you think you would do it again? Why, because it was very effective and you think you should do it more often or because you had some spill over from last year, or would like to give the ones you didn't exactly visit another go?
May 2013 come with good tidings
