The first month of the year is already nearing to its end, and it’s just lately that I’ve come up with concrete and long-term goals for this year. I really thought about what I wanted and what I needed to accomplish this year, and I realized that my goals are far from the cliché and usual goals that I had the past years which did not really feed my inner needs. Basically, 2014 was about self-discovery and healing and I felt that I had a successful year so why not continue these great things this year and in the years to come? I’m not getting any younger and I’m a few months away from facing a career and an independent life, so I wanted to fulfill something that is long term and something that is going to challenge me as an individual.

Don’t get me wrong here, I did not make IMPOSSIBLE life goals! If you’re familiar with the famous Audrey Hepburn quote “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I AM POSSIBLE”, that is one of my life mottos/mantras – to make everything possible and believe that I can achieve what I want if I work hard for it because not everything is served to us on a silver platter.

1.   RELAX, NO PRESSURE– I have this tendency of pushing myself too hard when it comes to doing something for work/school. I always get so stressed out even with the simplest things and end up not enjoying what I’m doing and also end up exhausted and drained. I just want to take things light headedly without any pressure and give myself a break from time to time.

2.    LIFE LESS COMPLICATED – Why complicate life if I can make it simpler? I’m so tired of complicating things/problems that can simply be solved, and overthinking things. I always thought about why children are so happy it’s because they don’t complicate things. I want to simplify things externally and internally, it’s like going back to basics – live simply, live healthier, live happier.

3.     PURSUE WHAT YOU LOVE – This year, I want to take a career that would hone my skills as an artist. Aside from being a theatre performer, I also love designing and doing creative work thus I’d rather get a career where I will improve my skills and be happy rather than earn bucks and yet I feel no content with my job.

4.    NO EXCUSES AND LEARN NEW THINGS – I will stop hindering and limiting myself from learning new things and taking opportunities because I always have this excuse that “I can’t”. Rather, I will open up myself to new things because I know “I can” and nothing is impossible if “I try”.

POSSIBLE is my word for 2015 and I’m going to make this year a better one! What are your goals this year?
