day 884 – fresh start

starting the new year skiing down the powders of cypress. we were one of those eager skiers who beat others up the mountain before the morning rush and out-ski the afternoon skiiers to avoid the evening traffic. i must have done minimum ten runs up and down the mountain before it was all said and done; not bad for my first skiing excursion of the season. my legs are certainly feeling tired after a full day of exertion. had some wipeouts when i unknowingly went on some black diamond runs. the weather was gorgeous, the snow conditions were great, couldn’t have asked for a better way to kickstart a 2016 full of promises

welcoming 2016

2015 was a good year in the grand scheme of things. through the past year, i have learned a lot about myself and have a better grasp of what i want to attain and where i want to go. i realized my true ambitious self of not wanting to remain at the same level time after time, year after year. there was definitely not as much action as i would like in terms of taekwondo competitions, but sometimes fate and timing has a lot to do with it. continuing to be involved in the dodgeball community not only in vancouver, but expanded my team to richmond. there’s no surprise i remain injury-proned; but the frequency as well as the ability to heal myself has gotten progressively better. i cannot express how blessed i am to have met so many supportive people in my life that always lends a hand or provides motivational words so i can stay on track even when times get tough

here’s to welcoming 2016 with open arms with set goals and big ambitions to take everything to the next level. let’s write the next 365 days and make it a year to remember.

  • stay as injury-free as possible
  • eat clean, sleep earlier, train regularly
  • take on big challenges even if i am scared, that’s the only way to get to the next level
  • be more confident and less self-doubting
  • love myself, my family and my friends just the way we are
  • learn a new sport
  • pick up snowboarding
  • learn to code, write my website
  • complete obstacle courses
  • travel the world

i am ready to take on all these challenges. find my strong. it’s now or never
