New Year’s Resolution 2018

I know I’m a little late than usual in writing my New Year’s Resolutions. This first week of this year has been a little hectic for me but I had to write my resolutions even if it was a little bit late.

2017 was a year of big changes and big decisions. It all started with me and my husband making the decision of moving to The US.

I’m a US citizen but on the other hand, my husband is not and this was a big decision for him because he has lived all his life in Panama. He had everything there and he was leaving everything to start from zero in a country where he didn’t even know the language (well that changed, he has been taking English courses and now he speaks English).

After moving here I was able to find a good job and I’m very thankful to God for that.

I first came alone, and then my husband came about 4 months later. Although things haven’t been easy, we’ve made some progress.

I’m very thankful to God because my husband seems to be adapting here. He is learning the language and his permanent residency card should be arriving soon.

So if you take a look at my New Year’s Resolution for 2017 you will see that I’ve pretty much accomplished all my goals and I’m very proud of ourselves.

This year I just want to focus on improving and getting better at pretty much the same things I started last year.

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 are:

1.Make my Mental Health the priority #1: if you have read my blog posts before you might know by now that suffer from anxiety and it’s hard for me to handle a lot of stress. I’m going to take my meditation and yoga practice more seriously and increase the times I practice them. I want to prepare myself mentally to be able to overcome any family and personal problems. I want to be mentally stronger.

2. I want to get be more savvy about finances and have no debt by the end of this year: I feel that this year is my year to finish paying all my debts and make sure I save at least $10,000.

3. I want to be a better daughter, a better friend, a better sister, a better aunt, a better Godmother, a better wife: I just want to let my family and friends know how much I love them and that I care about them. I am going to call them more often and be more present in their lives.

4. I will take care better of my body: I will exercise 3 times a week.

5. I want to enjoy life more and not take things for granted: at least once a day I will close my eyes and thank God for all I have.

    Wishing you a blessed New Year! I hope you accomplish all your goals.) I know how stressful immigration can be … I immigrated to Canada and it’s been incredibly hard mentally to handle all the stress! Sending you lots of positive thoughts for 2018 🙂
