Goal No. 6: Think Positive

They say when you’re heart is filled with worries, you should think about positive thoughts. This way, positive energy will get in and balance out the negative energy in your system. I know I am surrounded with well-wishers, people like my loved ones and my true friends who support me in whatever I do and think about getting for myself. But sometimes, things can get scary like when suddenly you become clueless of what the outcome of something will be.

I can be very pessimistic. This year, I plan to get rid of this negative trait. I will work on becoming a positive thinker. I know this is quite hard especially for someone who’s been a negative thinker most of her life but what the heck, there’s no harm in trying. I better start now or remain like this forever.

Goal No. 4: Travel to 10 Local Destinations

If there’s one thing the boyfriend and I have in common, it’s our love for travel. Actually, it’s not just that. We both love to visit new places, try new things and meeting new people. Once he said to me that when we have settled down (ehem), we’ll spend the first two years of our marriage sans kids. Instead of finding me pregnant with our first born and he working his ass off to save money for my delivery, we’ll go to as many places we’d love to visit. I doubt if it’s still gonna be the case by then especially now that our parents are already convincing us to get married soon and produce their first grandchild right after.

Goal No. 3: Watch 100 Movies this Year

I’ve been watching several movies (both old and new) in the past months. I didn’t know I’d enjoy it that much. Watching movies not only relaxes me, but it also broadens my horizons and makes me forget about my problems, albeit temporarily. I noticed that whenever I don’t have work at night, I’d choose from my list of ‘Movies to Watch’ and check if it’s available in my two favorite movie sites: www.stagevu.com and www.zmovie.tv. If that particular movie’s not available, I’d choose another title until I get to watch one. I’m that determined.

Movie watching as a pastime allows me to have ‘me time.’ It sets my mood. It calms my spirit and makes me inspired. I think ‘therapeutic’ is the more appropriate term. I also get a sense of fulfillment after watching a film which I personally chose and whose plot/theme piqued my curiosity and got me thinking. I mean, not all movies have that effect on me. My selection of movies may be limited but I am happy to note that they are all worth watching. Or so I think.

Goal No. 2: Dress Up More Often

When it comes to fashion, I’m anything but outdated. I get to know the latest trends by reading fashion magazines and blogs and by checking out what local celebrities are wearing on TV. Other than that, I know nothing more about fashion and dressing up.

Speaking of dressing up, I have decided that this 2011, I would dress up more often both at work and when going out. This goal will allow me to achieve four things: 1) wear the many new items in my closet that are starting to accumulate dust, 2) be more confident about my body, 3) develop my personal style and unleash the ‘fashionista’ in me 4) please the boyfriend, my family, my friends and myself.

A New Beauty Regimen

It’s been a week since I reunited with a facial product I have used before but discontinued using just because I was too lazy taking care of my face. But the new year has come and so has my drive. I dunno with you but each new year never fails to give me motivation, inspiration and new perspectives. Actually, when new year arrived, I didn’t say any resolutions and instead, I set some goals. Only realistic goals, though. I didn’t want to get disappointed with myself and the world.

Aside from losing weight, I also decided to take care of my skin. I started with my face because I felt it should be prioritized since this is the first to be seen when I deal with various people at home, at work and even online.
