2019 has been a rough year for me financially, physically, emotionally, and mentally! I could say that 2019 was not a good year for me. I’ve felt the heaviness of the year that it weighs me down BIG TIME!
THIS IS WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW…
I am nearly broke! I only have Php 1,350.oo or USD 25.00 in my bank account right now. It’s something I’m ashamed of because you know I am very thrifty with money and I saved a lot. But… This year, I don’t know what happened. I’m so all over the place that my money was gone fast. Faster than I received it. I lost track to where I’ve spent everything and because of this I got stressed and anxious. Imagine having no savings for the year but still got debt to pay. It’s saddening. 🙁
THE GOOD: The only good thing about it was I have paid all my monthly bills and never missed it. Responsibility Check!
IN 2020: I’m gonna get back on track. I will save money, review my finances weekly; and be in control with my money and not the other way around.
HEALTH / WELLNESS
Being broke got me sick a lot this year. I’ve been seeing our doctor frequently for the first half of the year and calling my mindset coach monthly. It sucks! Because every time I got sick my savings got stashed which led me to overthink again my financial status. It’s like a cycle to my mind. I hate being sick!
THE GOOD: Spending time with my mindset coach and take on their regular BE CAPTIVATING coaching has helped me survived this year and prevented me from hurting myself physically. I see my situations on a different perspective and work my way out to stand strong.
IN 2020: I’m gonna take care of myself physically, emotionally, and mentally. I will not abuse my body and listen to it when it tells me to rest. Also, I’m hoping to leave my anxiety in 2019.
WORK / CAREER
I just started my new work last July and I am still learning the ins and outs of my job. There’s a challenge during that period as it was an opposite to what I usually do – web and graphic design. But… It’s a good transition. I kept myself busy and I am able to divert my attention from my internal issues to work.
THE GOOD: I am able to meet new people that I became friends with and hopefully I get to inspire some of them to pursue their goals despite the pressure.
IN 2020: I’m gonna work only within my capabilities and I won’t say “yes” to all. I’ll say “yes” only to what I feel right.
MY BIG WINS IN 2019
Despite the challenges in 2019, I couldn’t hide that there’s still something good that happened to me. Even if it’s only a few…
- I finally got a job after a year of being a freelancer.
- I spend time with my family. It got us closer now.
- I am able to live the life without fear of other people’s judgement.
- I was able to watch concerts I loved.
- I am able to remain strong despite the struggle.
I have yet to think of my theme and goal for the new year. All I wish is for me, my parents, and my family to be healthy, happy, and abundant. That’s all I asked for, for the new year. 🙂
I’ll end my review here. I got to prepare for the New Year’s Eve later.
I hope you guys have a good one.
But REMEMBER before you start making a goal or a new year’s resolution review first where you are right now because that will be your starting point to where you want to go for the new year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
