Hello 2013, Goodbye 2012

in Life as it is

In a blink of the eye, it is now 2013. Wow. Time really flies as you grow older, isn’t it?

I haven’t been blogging – excuses being having writer’s block, being too busy spending my free time with those I love, going on holidays. But really, I haven’t been writing because I just simply don’t feel up to it. I want to record my life, so that I can read back years later, and appreciate everything that I have gone through. But I just don’t have the energy and the motivation to do it.

Maybe the start of the new year will be a good time to set my resolutions, as well as catch up with the writing on this blog -

{1} Sleep – I hope to sleep before midnight, and to achieve a healthy sleeping pattern with minimal oversleeping. Working weird hours in 2012 made me sleep at weird hours (2-3 am) and wake up at unhealthy timings (10-11 am). I hate this sluggish-ness, and I hope that both J and I can get some quality sleep hours (between 10-2 am) everyday!

{2} Eat – Eat better, that’s my resolution almost every year. I make baby steps improvement, so I hope to keep this up! I aim to eat more fresh veggies, fruits and yogurt / milk. Eating healthy makes me happy. :) Of course, I also hope that I can learn to whip up more delicious and healthy dishes, to prepare myself as a wife. :P

{3} Sweat – This year, I really need to exercise more. I aim to exercise at least twice a week, one time to focus on cardio, and the other to focus on toning. Regular exercise will not only make me slimmer, but also give me the much needed health!

{4} Work – I hope to be really committed to my students this year. There may be big decisions which may waver my commitment, but I still hope to see them all through till the end of this year.

{5} Write – In 2013, I hope to blog closer to the heart. I have already reduced my sponsorship posts as I want to make this blog more personal, something of greater substance to my own life. However, this space will still feature a couple of sponsored products once in a while.

{6} Love – This will be a huge year for us. I want to be able to love with all my heart, to be the one who will always be there for J, as well as all my other loved ones. I hope to treat each day as though it is the last, so that I can properly and truly cherish each and every moment with my loved ones.

{7} Discover – Last year has been wonderful. I went on a total of 6 holiday trips overseas, and also took a staycation in Singapore. I worked hard, and enjoyed hard. A true blue Hwa Chong-ian. This year, because of my commitments and J’s schedule, we wouldn’t be traveling as extensively. Hence, I hope that we can maximize our holidays by going to new places, so that we can continuing exploring new spaces and ideas!

{8} Zen – I know this will not be an easy year with huge changes in our lives, and the easily-stressed up me will feel very very pushed to the edge. I hope that I can learn to be more zen, to apply more relaxation techniques in my life. By sleeping, eating and exercising well, I know I will be able to manage stress better. As we are starting to get very into aromatherapy, I also hope to incorporate that more into our lives!

Hope that 2013 will be amazing!
