Sadly, I’ve been neglecting to chronicle day to day happenings and thoughts 😦 Part of me felt that life was better experienced in the moment, rather than appreciated in hindsight, but ironically, I find immense pleasure in reflection– at the things I mused, activities I done, and places I went. On that note, 2016 will hopefully contain more activity (fingers crossed!)
Life is a journey, not a destination
I’ve been learning–and struggling–with the idea that everything in life in a work-in-progress. It’s hard to accept the fact that nothing I do will be perfect the first time. Instead, there will be mistakes made majority of the times. The only thing to do is to keep our heads up and soldier on. Most notably, I really struggle with keeping all my old thoughts and pictures on my blog, which I feel so cringeworthy at times. So to escape the cringe, I just didn’t post anything… but life, unfortunately, is moving way too fast for me to keep up. I want to be able to go back and remember the tiny things that escape my memory, and I’m realizing blogging can be a type of time machine.
2016 will mark the year that I begin to write more. It will be the year that I focus on what I want to create what I want my life to be about.
It’s been about a year since I began my fitness journey, but I actually do not have many photos to show my progress. I was embarrassed that I was not at the point I want to be. It actually makes me a bit sad to see that I won’t have anything to remember what I used to be (weak lol). Despite the regret, I will knock 2016 out with a bang and (hopefully) a few pictures 😉
On record keeping…
More often than not, I shoot myself in the foot due to my poor organizational skills. HNNGGG 😦 😦 😦 Anyway, I just bought a 3TB external hard drive which should spur me to keep track and DOCUMENT everythaaaang. Vacation photos, school work, portfolio pictures, misc applications (for school, taxes, etc).
That’s it for now. Here’s to hope for another great year
