“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
2015 might not be Pooh’s year. But I’m definitely a step closer to where I need/want to be. Here are some of Pooh’s year-end reflections:
- What did you do this year that you have never done before?I’m grateful to say that I was able to spend (a lot!) on experiences this 2015. Adventure is truly well lived by this silly old bear as I was able to attend at least 7 concerts, travelled to at least 16 out-of-town trips and 4 out-of-the-country trips.
- What one word best sums up and describes your experience last year?Non-stop. Non-stop work, non-stop failures, and of course, non-stop adventures.
- What are you most happy about completing?Being able to tick off some of the items on my 2015 bucket list. I might be far from where I imagined to be in when I was younger, but at least, I know I am doing things that will make me closer to where I really want to be.
- What was the biggest risk you took?Staying. There are things I know I should already let go of. But for some reason I still can’t let go of these things that I know are not doing me any good already.
- What are you most grateful for this past year?Being able to start doing business again reminds me of the things I really am passionate about. 2015 had burned me out badly but the times spent on doing business are still worth it.
- What do you wish you had done more of?Invest & Exercise. Unfortunately, with all the gimmicks and travels I was able to do this year, the biggest pay-off was not being able to prioritize my investments. Exercise is also an ignored activity for this year. Who could blame this silly old bear’s always rumbling tummy?
- What do you wish you had done less of?Work. It does not matter how much I try, but work seems to always take up majority of my days.
- Knowing what you know now, if you could write a letter to yourself that would travel back in time so that you would receive exactly one year ago, what advice would you give yourself?2015 was a year full of pain and hardships. I can’t even remember how many times I broke down this year (Not even hunny can fix these problems). But always keep on fighting. Never settle. Stop trying to wait for things to come your way. Ask for it. Work hard for it. It is you and you alone who can change things. I know I’m still far away from my goals but rather than wallowing, I would rather use these bad experiences as my motivation to aim for success.
