2013!



Typing with one hand is a bit of a challenge so I will try and keep this short and concise. First, I really do appreciate anyone who reads what I write and staying updated with my life. I know I'm not great at posting consistently or great at describing things but I think doing this is fun and will try and improve my writing as one of my New Year's resolutions.

I will also do a separate Bali post but I had a amazing time, loved being around people I love and checking out a new place with no stress or schedules.

A quick review of what I wrote for last year's resolutions. 1- Stop comparing myself so much to others and accepting that people are way better at activities than I am and not taking it personally. I genuinely think I have gotten better at this part of my life and accepted it.

2- To live with more urgency and getting out of my comfort zone a bit more. I did less well on this one. Staying a second year wasn't getting out of my comfort zone and i didn't exactly approach Victoria Secret models in my spare time. I will work on not being as lazy/complacent is some aspects of my life this year like reading, exercising and making good long term choices and not just short term decisions.


2013 resolutions:
Staying out of the hospital
No sunburns
Eating fresh fruit four times a week while still in Thailand
Continue to write down everything I spend money on
Read a book for at least 30 minutes everyday
Find another incredible job in 2013 in or outside of Canada.

Lastly, sometimes I get off track and find it hard to have a sole purpose that guides me. I thought if I chose some qualities I want to emulate, it would help me in my everyday choices and interactions. I looked through a massive list and here are the ten I came up with. If you want to give it a shot, let me know how it goes:

I wanted five but it was tough getting to ten. It was fun, challenging and insightful. If I am unsure about a situation, I'm hoping this list will give me some insight and remind me what type of person I'm trying to be.

Rational

Honest

Confident

Hard working

Original

Adaptable
