shaping 2018

2017 was challenging that staggered between many emotions, some happy, some successful, some difficult, some burdensome and some heartbreaking moments. i was struck by my most depressing moments that resulted in bottling up emotions where self destruction happened. underneath the outer shell, was three hundred and sixty five days of constant battle that left many unseen scars. after this three hundred sixty five day battle, i came to realize i had ample growth: grew stronger, became braver, gained experience and expanded my knowledge. the struggles gave me a different perspective in life, the achievements gave me hope to to continue to climb. life is a journey defined by how well one copes after being knocked down. looking forward into the next twelve months, i’ll regroup and pull myself together to find my strong. i’m a fighter and won’t stop short of reaching my goal. as long as i stay strong, keep grinding and never settle for less than my full potential. life is about betterment and i’m committed to being the strongest version of myself

the latter part of 2017 wasn’t the best of days and was a true test of patience. the long drought, the fluctuating health, the seesawing emotions were all big obstacles, but i made sure all loose ends were closed. waving 2017 goodbye knowing 2018 has much more for me in store

  • get back healthy and stay as injury-free as possible
  • consistent training and eating with proper sleep
  • step up my game and take it to the next level
  • setting my priorities and boundaries
  • love myself for who i am, love my family, love my friends
  • stay focused towards advancement
  • attain more designations
  • save up for the numbers game
  • explore and travel the world
  • devote more time on what sets my heart on fire
  • step out of my comfort zone and expand my horizon
  • acknowledge being a workaholic but appreciate the little things

i’m ready to start 2018 off strong and be the stubborn goal digger that i am. just remember the best has yet to come

day 889 – not a chance

this went out the door as fast as it came into my mailbox. in the past i would’ve left it on the counter waiting for someone else to claim it. today i threw it right out with no hesitation cause i want no part of this overpriced junk. i am confident to say turning down fastfood is something i would do in a heartbeat. making healthy choices simply because i want a well maintained system that won’t break down prematurely

day 517 – chilli day

putting in the work as part of my kinesiologist’s version of his new year’s gift to me before my physio crucified¬†my knee. i do appreciate all the push i have gotten this year to strengthen my¬†weaknesses and i will continue to improve and work even harder next year. on my way out of physio to see this gorgeous view of downtown with white mountains in the background. not a good day to be under dressed when the weather is minus four degrees

here’s to 2014!!

let’s start the start off on the right foot and make 2014 the best year yet!! another year has gone by with the blink of an eye, time really does fly even when you are not having fun. 2013 was not a great year for myself in many ways, but i managed to get through the tough times and made a lot of effort to turn things around for the upcoming year. no doubt there’s a lot on my new years resolution. remember don’t waste our time, take advantage of the present, look towards the future; write our own life, create our own destiny. hopeful for 2014
