This is the second day of Chinese New Year and here I am having my "alone" time in the morning...by waking up "automatically" by my biological clock near 6 a.m. Ever since KY starting morning school session, my body has been tuned to wake up at this hour every morning (yes, even during weekends!) and it has done some good to me as well. Since i need to wake up early, i always tend to sleep earlier too along with my children, starting with bedtime story and I treasure this moment each time of the night, so do my children!
There are a lot of things i wished to do this year, and here i would like to record it down for my own checking:
- Reconnecting and making the effort to meet the people i cared about and also cared for me and my family a lot!
Yes, i did that before CNY(by meeting up with a lovely auntie as well as a new-found friend, Yean, they are all such lovely and caring mommies,!), and of course during CNY too! Have met up with my dear Buddy Charl on first day itself, and looking forward to visit KY's Godmom(haven't seen her for the longest time!), to meet up with my aunties who are back from Down Under, my friends who'll be back from US today!! Am determinted to make full use of my CNY break to reconnect with all these lovely and important people in my life!
- Prioritise- there's often a lot of things on my plate, but i would want to keep my focus clear and prioritise on what's really important and not just urgent.
- Wellness and Well-being
As I meet up with people, been attending some talks lately and also do some read-up on wellness and well-being, i came to understand that our emotions and state of mind influence our physical health and also affects how we live our life.
Thus, I strive to take good care of my wellness(spiritually and physically) as well as my family who cares a lot! I am also starting to say my blessings each time i leave my house; to pray for the well-being of my family members and to inject positive thoughts and energy to my home.
- Taking time to detox and rejuvenate
After attending the talk on Emotional Detox as well as the Emotional Balance with Essential Oil last year and early this year, i learnt how each of our bodily ailment springs up from our emotional disability to handle certain situation or the habitual way of how we react and act.
I will share more about this as I compile my notes and also gotten one of the reference book that I would love to explore further on Emotional Balancing.
I also started using two essential oils daily now to reinstate my life daily- Joy on my wrist and Believe on the crown of my body. This is 'cos i tend to go low in energy and spirits easily as i zoomed through the daily hustle-bustle and my own belief system.
During the Emotional Balancing class and self-survey i also came to understand that I often mis-treat myself by not allowing any(or much) form of "enjoyment" for myself and that I haven't been treated myself well enough to make me deserve the attention and time thus the havoc of my health too. I am a "yellow" person who often cares about others a lot yet often put myself at last spot or even don't feel i deserved to be "pampared" or "cared" for which is pretty imbalance and improper way of treating ourselves. So i am now using Abundance essential oil to put back the right perspective that I am born "Enough" and is "Good Enough" to receive the abundance of love, care, support, and health+wealth into my life now and I receive it with grace, gratitude and pleasure.
- Have courage, be accountable and enjoy the uncertainties and learning new things
As we got older, we seems to lose that kind of "sparks" and excitement over festive seasons compared to when we were younger. Festive season now can seems to be like a heavy "chores" and line-up of busy schedule that makes us frown even before it approaches. This totally defeats the purpose of the joy of get-together and also time to reconnect and embrace+giving out our care and love to our beloved ones.
So do our courage to face the uncertainties and new things coming on our plate. This year, i will be making a "couple trip" with DH to US and this comes with lotsa preparation, research as well as worries for our children during our "away" time. Also comes with lotsa excitement for the trip as well as thankfulness for the full support coming from my parents and siblings!
- First, be accountable for my life, next be the pillar for others
Everyday, life is full of uncertainties, and having watched a movie before the year ends in 2016(i forgot the name of the movie in English) but that movie made me realised how we, the anchor of our family, community and the world need to have such healthy and fit body and mind in order to take on whatever that comes to us as well as to be able to act in the moment which might just the thing that will saved us/our family/our loves ones/this world. And without having the discipline to eat healthily, act healthily, live healthily we won't have much chance when such "changes" comes into our life
I pray for a better me in all aspects of my life for year 2017 and wishing all my friends the same too! May we be inspired and be the inspirations and good role model to our kids or the people around us. To be someone we love to be and be that person you would be proud of!
Cheers to a fruitful 2017 folks!
