I love new beginnings and I do recognize the struggles that sometimes go with it but last night before the midnight struck 12:01 to officially welcome 2019, I feel the surge of excitement and peace.

2018 is so last year and I am ready for 2019 and achieve key goals that I intend to accomplish. I keep it really tight and focus on 5 things:

  1. Save and Invest – I have to take care of myself and my future, I would do what I have to do right now so I can do want I want to do later on (referencing to a reflection of a line from ‘The Great Debaters.’) I know living in the present is important but living with freedom without worrying about the necessities in life is the dream.
  2. Write a book – I am ready for my second book to publish in Amazon and I am excited that I have the concept in place and even the root intention. I’m excited to create again. This is actually making me feel so alive, I have to create something to know that I am living a purpose.
  3. CALM + KINDNESS + PEACE – Brandon Burchard has questions at the end of the day, “Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?” and I have been searching my three things and for this year especially I have drilled it down to calm, kindness and peace for a pretty good reason.
    • Calm because I have the tendency to worry and when I freeze then I couldn’t act, and I don’t like that feeling anymore, so calm to have the action to accept the situation and not overthink it.
    • Kindness because when I lose my bearing (lack of sleep or overwhelmed) I turned into a disaster blabber and monster. Everyone has their own demons to combat and I don’t need to be part of their demon to deal with.
    • Peace will always be my ultimate compass that will not change until the end of my life. Love is equally important but peace means I get to go to bed and enjoy my dream.
  4. No more late submission at work – I know that I am turning more irresponsible at work. I could already sense that I am not happy with how things are running in the company but I still recognize that when I love what am doing I lose track of time. I need the job for a practical reason and there’s no reason that I have to be a pain to anyone by doing late works, so this year, I’ll be determined and focused.
  5. Learn to speak, read, and write Arabic – I’ve been in the Middle East for 10 years and I can’t speak, read, or write their language and it’s frustrating at work that I am not fully equipped so this year I finally decided to learn a new skill.

Aside from the 5 above, I would be mindful that I get good sleep daily (at least 7 hours), pray (as soon as I wake up and go to bed), meditate daily (usually I do 15-minutes but I think am ready for 20-minutes – will try this tomorrow and see how it feels), get fit and move 30 minutes daily, journal 1 sentence a day (which I’ve done for 1 full year in 2018), and finally feed my body, mind, and spirit with good food.

What are your goals for 2019, are you all set too and excited like me?
