2011: New Year, New Life , New Goals

Suddenly, 2010 is over just like that. Before I have a chance to give it a proper goodbye, 2011 creeps up on me faster than I can say farewell to all the marvelous experiences and lessons I have learnt throughout the past year. Of course there were sad times, stressful times and not so pleasant times, but then I choose to remember the good times, the happy times and all the things that makes life pleasant.

This year will definitely be one fascinating year. In every aspect, the world is changing. Climate change is causing many countries to experience snowfall unlike ever before. Belgium is having their coldest winter.. when I lived there over 20 years ago, it hardly snowed. When it did, it’ll melt away so soon I never got to make a snowman. Economies are recovering from the financial crisis, politics is changing and of course, we are all growing a year older. Age creeps up quietly on us like a cat watching a mouse.

So this year, in my attempt to become a better person, I have made some new resolutions. I’m not perfect and must admit I have not accomplished all my goals for 2010, but I will not let it deter me from accomplishing them in 2011. As long as you keep trying, you have not failed. (Just don’t keep trying forever and never get anything done!) Every year is like a new life. Another chance at living life the way you want it. So go out there and make 2011 your year!

Here are some of my ongoing goals as I try to make the most of what life has to offer.

1. Have a balanced lifestyle.
2. Maintain my weight (So far so good!)
3. Complain less
4. Appreciate more
5. Speak slower and louder.
6. Plan more, procastinate less and JUST DO IT!
7. Practice golf to a level that I’ll be good enough to go out on course.
8. Do NOT accumulate things you don’t need.
9. No handbag shopping (work or weekend models. I have no storage space!)
10. Run the 10K Marathon

They might not sound glamorous, but they are goals I’d be proud to have accomplished. What about you? What are your personal goals? 🙂 How are you planning to make your life better in 2011? Please share.

Remember you only get one chance at life!!! Have a great year everyone! I’m ready, are you?
