Resolutions - ROI for 2010

Yes, I like creating resolutions. I try to create a list of "must" do's for the coming year. I may not have 100% success rate in my past resolutions. But I think I am able to atleast follow-through on atleast 1 of them.. hehehe :)

For 2010, of course, we come to the basics. This acronym that I read from a book, will help me chart the coming decade for me - ROI - Relationships, Outcomes and Improvements. Let's start at Relationships.

Relationships...

I am someone who value relationships. It is really the top priority in my life - my partner, my family, my friends and the the people around me. If I have a list of to do's for a day, the task that adds more value to my relationship, will be my priority!

At work, I will try to add more tasks that will enable me to help others in their growth and career. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing the younglings grow to be confident individuals. I will try to give them what I had in my younger years - guidance and attention.

Outcomes

Weight loss (this again :)), more money! and of course more knowledge! I should start to have my weekly,and monthly goals in place! It helps to write these down so I could have a clear vision on where I want to be the next year.

I will have to work doubly hard in acquiring new knowledge and reading more books this year. I am off to a good start I think. Mommie introduced me to a good writer - Italo Calvino (a Libran! yes, I googled him!). I will start to go through his works! The first one I am reading is "The Castle of Crossed Destinies" - storytelling through the use of tarot cards! (if this is not a book for me, I am not sure what is).

Improvements

I will have to improve on my diet, my grammar and my fashion (yes Mommie, I hear you). I also have to improve on this - Regularity. Yep, to last in this life, we must work on regularity.

What else is this to do? I think my list is long for now and I don't have anything to add. But of course, for 2010 - there can only be more love, prosperity and success for everyone!!!! :)

I will definitely try to work on this - Keeping the positive energy alive!

Amen? AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

Baby boom

The first time we settled here in Melbourne we got to know a lot of fellow Pinoys who are living on a different environment. We joined them in making Australia our second home. In each gathering, we try to get to know them better and reconnect.

We didn't know how it happened. But after 2 years, suddenly each couple had their own babies. Don't get me wrong, babies are cute but it was just surprising to note that parties suddenly turn into an event similar to family reunions back home.

Instead of blood relatives, you get to see friends and their kids grown before your eyes. It's not the gray hair that makes me feel old.  It's the babies and kids that are now walking and developing into little adults.

I can't complain. For some reason, it is good for now, to look and enjoy kids from afar. It's fun to carry them for a few minutes compared to living with a baby 24/7. It must be hard. I really commend couples with kids and having to work for a living at th…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
