Hey peeps, long time no write! And yeah, alteration was and actually is still happening in my life right now. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised to see that my previous posts were full of negative vibes and words of surrender. Like, I’ve been knew there was something wrong with myself, I wanted to change it, but the dubious feeling is boundless, I even feel a bit scared with what I wrote. *The urge to hug and pat my past self is supreme*.
So, I have this intention to make my blog filled with positive vibes. And since I love to read so many articles which I usually tend to forget 85% of it afterwards *whoops*, I think it would be good–& of course beneficial for both of us, the readers, and me–to share what I’ve read + what’s my stand point(s) in here.
Since I am currently a trash for self-growth & self-development articles, you can expect me writing about it most of the times hehehe. But worry not, I am actually a trash for many things, constantly being a self-proclaimed-curious-person, so you can expect more than self thingy post in my blog! 🙂
Ok, that’s for the intro, now it’s time to share what I’ve read.
Because, it’s nearly the end of 2017, *i can smell the scent of holiday already*. Let’s talk about goals, means, and momentum.
As I grow older, it becomes more vivid to me that process is “a lot more” than result. A lot more important, a lot more meaningful, requires a lot more hard work, and have a lot more impacts, either for those who want to have a major change or those who only want to wander.
Process is important, process is where you unconsciously becoming a lot more mature, attentive, and ardent. We are the result of a lot of process we’ve been going through, period.
Why I suddenly talk about process whilst I state about goals, means, and momentum at the beginning?
New year, it’s identical with “new you”, full with a list of abundance of hopes everyone wants to fulfill in the near future or so called resolution. But, let me ask you this, do you still remember all of your resolutions for 2017? and, have you achieved all of that? If you have achieved it, let me send you my honor, you are a great human being. And if you haven’t, worry not, most of people even forget their resolutions. Pardon my laziness to search for data about how long people could keep up with their New Year resolutions, but we’ve been knew after all that most of us tend to break it not long after we made it. And because of that, the number of memes spreading online about the high possibility of us break our own NY resolution are pretty immense. Of course, NY is not the only time you can spell out what you want to achieve in life. You can do it anytime of course, especially when sudden inspiration hits you. But, it honestly concerns me, in a way that we will diminish our potential, or the way we see ourselves.
Generally speaking, resolution usually is all about change, or improvement from and to certain condition. And, according to the articles I read, the reason why we easily break our resolution is because we tend to undervalue the process.
Cited from one of articles I read, it says that “The big things are just the small things done repeatedly.” It’s not infrequent home runs that will lead us to achieve our goals but instead our tiny steps, day by day, time to time, that we do consistently. It takes time, yes it is, and of course it is! But it is how it works. Instead of hurriedly copy some steps that our friends already did–because it might not work in our case–It is the source for us to clearly evaluate ourselves. It is the source for us to considerately planning what we should do afterward. By do it consistently.
Besides, through the process, don’t forget to give 100%. This one is quite interesting, it says that “It’s actually far more exhausting to not work than it is to work. It takes far more energy to sit with internal conflict than it does to get to work.” and I can’t agree more with it. I often found myself regret the choice that I made (to decide not to do what i supposedly do) and it’s far more exhausting because in my case, it could negatively impact my mood for the whole day. Whereas, If I do it anyway, I would be proud of myself and it could be the point where I push myself to achieve an even greater point.
That’s the highlight I found interesting from the articles I read. And if you are interested with the articles, here I list it at the end note.
So guys, even though a lot of memes about NY resolution are spreading wildly on internet, do not hesitate to make one of yours!
