It’s 2017! 2016 just disappeared in the blink of an eye. I personally feel that 2016 was not exactly the best year, many negative things have happened, in my life as well as around me. However, I really thankful for the experiences that I have gone through in 2016.

I really hope that 2017 would be more positive as compared to 2016. So here are some of my New Year Resolutions for this year…

  • Do what I love to do, and not let other push me to do things that I don’t wanna do.
  • Take better care of myself, in terms of my physical and mental health
  • Don’t put too much unnecessary stress on myself
  • Be more positive / Have a positive outlook on life.

Many people are setting new year resolutions and I really encourage you guys to do so if you haven’t! And I know many people struggle with actually sticking to them. But what I have found that actually breaking up you New Year goals into quarterly goals it is actually easier to stick to them. Example, you break you one big new year resolution into four parts. So by the first quarter, you tell yourself “I wanna achieve…” then the next quarter you push yourself even more. This really works for me as it takes away the stress of accomplishing something so big and daunting which at times looking at it in a whole feels impossible at times!

SO I really encourage everyone out the to make the most of this year and do not let what other people say affect you! On that note HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Life Update!

This is a new thing that I want to start doing on my blog, where after every few months I would do a ‘Life Update’. So that you guys know what going on in my life. And also mainly a place for myself, where I can look back after a few year and see what was going on in my life then (like a diary; (disclaimer!)I would be talking a bit more about God in these posts). I hope you’ll enjoy reading!

A lot has happened in the past few months, from starting poly to meeting many new people to becoming one year older; a lot of crazy adventure…

Sadly I didn’t really have time to update my blog. And somehow felt the pressure that whatever I want to post is not good enough and eventually found myself not posting anything for a few months straight.

Firstly, school. Ohh my, where do I even start. Okay, I’ve just started my first year in TP and it is kind of shocking even thought I felt like I had well prepared myself for poly life. Staying up way later then expected to complete assignments, long days in school, endless work load and the list literally goes on! But enough about the negatives, I’m really enjoying poly life despite everything. I’m glad to be surrounded by friends in school that are really good and make school feel like home at times haha. Really thankful for the people around me, always motivating and encouraging me to press on, for accepting me for me and teaching me to love myself even more every single day.

Secondly, I’ve recently been to Malaysia for my church camp during June. It was AMAZING!!! I really felt like it was something really necessary for me to attend despite all the pilling school work I had. Even though I was busy during camp, serving here and there. It was a great break from everyday life and especially a ‘recharge’ for my walk with God. During the camp, I felt God giving me a new direction for the next chapter of my life; I should learn to trust him in all areas of my life and learn to surrender everything into his hands.

I immediately put this new directing of my life into action. I was really hard at first but overtime I realised I was able to feel much lighter, as the burden of my school work was just lifted as I surrender it to God. I realised that I was not so overwhelmed by everything that was going on around me and was able to breath.

Of course not everything was all sunshine and rainbow everyday, I still had day where i felt like poop, its life so…haha Just have to press on through day like those!

Lastly, I am currently on my second last week of my very first semester in Poly. Even though exams (only two papers YAY!!) are near it feels like my holidays have already started. I’ve just got to push through the next two week!! I need to start study soon, so I’m gonna end this ‘Life Update’ here…
