It’s been a while since I last updated this blog and honestly, I felt that time has gone by so quickly this year. As I wrote this post, I was still in the midst of my travels for Eid celebration, so I had to steal some alone time between the hectic to re-evaluate my earlier 2019 goals and what had actually happened in the past 6 months. I want this post to be simplified, so I will only share some major events and few lessons that I’ve learned along the way.
I recently wrote a blogpost of things that I have learned in 2018 and how I created a Life Masterplan. There are some things from that list that I am still in the process of learning and improving this year. That’s the thing about learning – it doesn’t stop until after graduation, it’s a lifetime process.
Every year, I get a little excited and anxious when new year approaches. It’s not about doing something new or improving certain skills only when the new year starts because obviously you can do that at any point of time in your life. But there’s this little joy when seeing other people share their new goals and passion together at the same time; for a moment, I feel like have a life reset button. It’s during this time where I get to flip through my old journals and logs, re-evaluate life and seeing where my life is at after a year or so.
After being away from blogosphere for about 6 months, I have many topics that I wanted to talk (write) about. I don’t prefer to dump everything into a single post, and for this reason I will have them posted in separate entries. In this particular post, I just wanted to share a quick glance of what had happened in the past months (April to mid Sept) while I’m away.
This year, I started to use a Planner. For me, the good thing about it is that I tracked things that happened almost everyday, also did a weekly and monthly review. I set time to write, log, and reflect. The planning part, I did it weekly, but it doesn’t work for me as much – most of the time, things changed. The journaling part, works wonderfully.
To keep this post simpler and shorter, I’m making it as a list for the past 3 months review (January – March 2018), both good and bad.
