This year instead of setting a theme and making new year’s resolution, I’ve decided to do something different: setting up my core desired feelings. I like the idea of listing down how I want to feel and then designing my goals for me to generate those feelings.
Last year my theme was “Go with the flow”, I believed that I’ve taken my 2017 journey with it and I’ve accepted the highs and lows. For 2018, I’ve got three core feelings that I desired to achieve.
I hope to leave my self doubt, anxiety, and fear in 2017 and start fresh this coming year. I will start treating myself better, be more understanding of myself, and be positive of my outlook in life. Also, I will look for a job and work the hardest for my family. This year, I want to feel confident and unleash the potential that God gave me. It will not be easy as the anxiety that I got is still there, but I know I that with his guidance I can and will surpass this.
Last year was a hard year. I really struggled with fear and anxiety. Everyday, I go to work fearing of what task I could not do better again. I know it’s not healthy to feel that way but the thought that I receive more “why this thing happen” remark than appreciation makes my anxiety grow. You know sometimes, it drowns me like “I can’t take it anymore. I am afraid of almost everything. I’m so lost that I didn’t know what I want to do any more.” However, I’m thankful to my family, friends, and office mates for being there with me when I struggle and to the Lord for giving me strength in times of fear. As I move forward in 2018, I want to have courage to do things outside of my comfort zone. Even when I’m afraid, I will try to do it anyway. I have to live life without fear. Will you cheer for me?
I believe that being blissful can make my mental, emotional, and physical state balance. This year, I wanted to achieve a blissful life. I will make “blissful” the center of my choices, whether it be related to my future, my work, and my family. I’ll declare my bliss. I’ll imagine what it feels like until I it harmonize within my being. It’s quite a challenge, but I want to take a first step to achieve that state. Declaration: I will live my best life and live it blissfully. You only live once after all.
We can all set what we want our year to become, what kind of feelings we want to have, or what experiences we want to take this year. Each of us will have different goals, and I hope that as you achieve that goal it will give you the feelings that you’ve wanted. Isn’t it nice to feel happy and contented?
