This is an overdue post. My initial plan was to reflect about 2019 and jot down my resolutions for 2020 at the beginning of the year. However, due to procrastinating and delaying, I am blank and have no idea how to draft this post. You guys must have heard me saying this a thousand times. “Life of a Mommy passes swiftly like wind”. I used to keep a blog where I would just dump all my feelings in there. I regretted for not remembering the password so ended up I couldn’t blog there anymore. Still, it is never too late to keep writing as I really want to read back all these posts when I am old. I wanted to attach some pictures to reflect about my 2019 too but my phone cable is not being supportive. I couldn’t transfer all my pictures to my laptop. To type this post out using my phone would be another quick and effortless post. One of my biggest aim this year is to keep this blogging passion going. I don’t want to be famous but rather I want to bring my thoughts to a more transparent level where I can share with people around me. And hopefully, wives-to-be or mommies-to-be can learn from my mistakes and experiences so that you won’t go through the same thing as me.
Let’s take a look at my year 2019. I spent the first half of the year being pregnant with Belle and taking things really slow and relaxing. What I meant is, I had a slack year and couldn’t do much because I had terrible morning sicknesses and always feeling lethargic. I found out I was pregnant at the end of year 2018 and things just change. I can’t remember much as I don’t want to linger back to the past. Life goes on and I should be looking forward to what I should be achieving this year.
Here are some of my highlights for year 2019 🙂 I had a great year!
Giving birth to Belle
Graduating from a “Professional MC Course”
Achieving the President’s Distinguished Club Award
HOME is where my heart is
Basically, that sums up my year 2019. Of course, there are some other minor achievements like I could finally spend more time in reading because I am taking things slow so I have more time to read. But that was before Belle’s arrival. After she arrives, I basically need to grab every opportunities to rest and sleep because having a baby is no joke. You need to be alert even in your sleep. My days are faster with a baby. I definitely won’t be the type of mommy who would just reach out to my husband for money. I wish to have my own career and earning my own income as well, although I wish for more flexibility at this stage since Belle is still small. I wouldn’t want to miss any stages of hers.
Here is a list of my resolutions for year 2020 🙂
Improving myself and bringing myself to another level. This means attending more course and learning new skills. Last year, I have achieve my goal to be a professional host and this year, I would like to bring my singing into another level. I want to be a certified singer who can teach.
Focusing more on my blog. I have created a Facebook page for “Vpowermommy” at the beginning of this year. So, I would like to keep it active and put more effort in writing products’ reviews in order to help more mommies and friends around me.
Maintaining the reading habits by reading at least ONE book a month. Would love to read more as my book list is increasing.
Family is FIRST. My husband, my daughter and my family will always be my priority. You can offer me a job which worth a few thousands but if it clashes with my family events, I’ll still say no. Thank you very much. Let’s be clear and upfront.
Be more discipline. Don’t procrastinate over tasks like blogging, Toastmaster’s Pathway Project and list of things which I am suppose to do.
Keep the genuine and chuck away all insincere people who don’t matter. This year, I’ll still treasure those who matter and don’t give a shit on those who are not sincere to me.
Living in the moment. YOLO. Plan for trips and vacations, meeting new people and make friends with people who has the same interests.
Do good. This year, I want to focus more on CSR and doing kindness to society.
Open up to greater challenges. Don’t doubt myself at the first glance. Believe that I can achieve it.
Be the BEST version of me in every roles.
2019 has been a great year for me. Looking forward to year 2020. Let’s review at the beginning of next year to see if I have achieve all these resolutions. I am feeling grateful because I have family and friends who always stood by me and giving me the help that I need. I don’t want to take any of them for granted.
So, dearies, have you list down your resolutions? I am a month’s late so I guess you should have kick start with yours already! We are all in this together so let’s keep this going! Have a great day people!
