Sometime in 2013, I started drifting away from my usual daily routine. Before, my mornings were devoted to this blog. However, due to the mixture of various changes in schedules and priorities, I started leading an unbalanced scheme and living an “ALL WORK, NO PLAY” disposition.
This year, I want to change that! That’s my mission. This year, I shall find time to continue doing the things that I love to do. Be it, style blogging or simply writing about the things that I’m interested in. From deep subject matters like latest news up to mundane stuff like my latest fashion or beauty must-haves, I’d just go and put them into words and post them here. Besides, that’s how my blog was way back 2005, it was a place where I poured my heart out. I used to be content with the simple thoughts that I get to share in my small part of the World (Wide Web).

This is not a New Year’s Resolution, this is a New Year’s Mission. My mission is to keep afloat and start giving time to pursuing things that would keep my life balanced, more fun, and more meaningful. Not saying that working hard doesn’t make my life balanced or meaningful, it’s just that too much of something is indeed bad. I’ve been thinking hard about it, and I’ve got to admit that I’m getting obsessed with the idea of earning. All I have in mind is just to work, work, and work because I’ve to earn more. But seriously, what’s the primary effect of this mindset? STRESS. A whole dose of it. Sometimes, I like to take a breather, aka sleep. But we all know that when we sleep, we lose seconds in life that should’ve been spent in doing more valuable things. In my case, these things may involve playing with my kids, or reading books, or watching TV series or movies.
Now, how does that relate to my blog? Remember before when I’d emphasize that THERE IS ALWAYS TIME? I guess that’s the key to living a balanced life, to always find time to do things that make you happy and make your heart sing. Hopefully, by going back to blogging, I can bring back the mantra about always having time.
So there, no promises, just high hopes for this year. :)
