Every year, I meet and work with people who bring inspiration to the little skills that I have, whether it’s sketching, reporting, analyzing, or ‘journaling’ (wanted to say blogging, but I also keep ‘actual’ notebooks where I deposit thoughts and doodles). This year I’m positive that I’ll meet more who will continue to widen my perspective.
What’s in store for me this year?
Since my work in Makati allows me to work from home about three times a week and in flexible hours, I have time for self-improvement practices such as yoga, foreign-language learning, and reading (and watching TV series). I may also help a wedding coordinator feature their works through blogging. And, I can also use the time for detoxifying the brain, body, and bags.
While I avoid buying stuff that I don’t need, I’ve also been throwing away clutter, so now my bag is mess-free. Same with my Facebook, I’ve been deleting contacts who in my humble opinion could not contribute any to one’s well-being. Sounds harsh, but, what would I do with 1,500 contacts who virtually live in my newsfeeds and who send spam messages and invites, if I couldn’t follow my friend’s stories and life events? Simplicity, like brevity, is key.
