My One Word for 2017
Every year, I often set (A LOT OF) goals for myself, only to realize that on the third month, I can’t even fulfill them. Worse, I even forget about the goals I set at the beginning of the year, so I want to do it better this time. I’ve been reading a lot about fellow mommy bloggers who are setting their word every year and I decided to join the bandwagon. For this year, I chose the word PUSH.
You might ask why.
I’ve been complacent about my life for as long as I can remember. I never really worked hard for anything and I always have my family every time I need help. When I started doing freelance work, I didn’t put too much effort with my job and didn’t push myself harder and look for better, bigger opportunities. After all, I know my husband is there to support me anyway.
Blogging has been so-so for me last year as well. I only blog when I have time and rarely pay attention to it. There are many opportunities that come with blogging, some I even say no to. I haven’t explored my options yet because “okay na ko dyan.”
Last December, I started having issues with my freelance work. My employer told me that we have to stop doing a certain project, which I have to account as my biggest-paying one. Work started to slow down by the end of the year and come 2017, I am earning less than what I am used to.
“What’s your plan?,” my husband asked me. I said I don’t know – yet.
This year, I want to push myself to do better and try harder. I want to push myself to the limits so I can look for better opportunities, both in my freelance work and blogging. I want to push myself to explore my options and try something new. There are so many opportunities available and I want to give them a try.
Push is also my mantra because this year, I want to improve myself – both physically and emotionally. I’m going through depression for years already and this time, I want to keep pushing myself to kick it out of my system. Depression has been affecting my relationship with my husband and my overall disposition. My kids are also affected and how I perceive myself is also leaning towards the negative side.
I want to be a better mom, a better wife, and a better version of myself and I will push myself to do that. Yes, I can do this.
