Welcome 2017!

 

Wow! I can’t believe I am writing my first post of 2017! 2016 went by so fast! It was a great year! It’s amazing if you look back and evaluate yourself, where you were one year before and where you are today, what you have accomplished, what mistakes you made and what you have learned from it, ups and downs you experienced, difficulties and challenges you faced and how you overcame them, this really gives you the vision to set your future goals. I did experience ups and downs, challenges and I have learned a lot. The biggest lesson I learnt and I want to share with you all, is – Take care of yourself first! This is very important. It feels like selfish but it’s not. It is not like I don’t take care of myself but sometimes many things need your attention at the same time and that’s when situation goes out of control. Best solution for this – prioritize everything including yourself /your needs. Ask for help. Learn to say no. I learned this lesson hard way, got terribly sick, couldn’t do /enjoy things I planned to do with my family/friends. Had to drop many plans. I did not feel good about it. What is the use of all hard work if you are not happy and not able to enjoy your life. So definitely one of my goal of 2017 (and onwards) is to take care of myself first!

What is yours?

    I think it’s great that you’re focusing on taking care of yourself in the new year. That’s something we all tend to forget sometimes – and definitely something I’ll be focusing on as well. I’m such a hustler, that sometimes I get lost in my work and forget that I need to do the simple things – like eat! Haha! Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!
