Things on My To-do list for 2017

Hello! I have a lot to show and tell(like things on my to-do list for 2017), but please accept my new year greetings first! The start of the New Year was a little off for me as I suffered from severe cold and hence, I’m so late in extending my greetings to you all! Putting that aside, I hope you all had a great time and are thoroughly enjoying the new start.

Now, the first question anyone asks you after wishing you a happy new year is about your resolutions! I’m sure this word is jinxed, and a resolution can go only as far as a month, of course, exceptions exist.
So, this year, I decided on a few realistic goals rather than being supremely unrealistic in the heat of the moment. I decided to continue and start a few healthy habits rather than resolutions. Also, I have several things planned for the blog, and hopefully, they’ll be fruitful. Here are a few things I’m planning on doing this year:
  • Women Warriors Wednesday on the blog: The idea behind it is to feature the tales of those unsung heroes around you, who go through fierce battles every day that you and I have no idea about. I’d like for you to submit any such story that you have about any lady or about yourself that you think is deserving. Any story of courage and strength is welcome, from any part of the world. You can send in the submissions through the contact form, or you can connect with me on any of my social media and talk to me.
  • A jar full of memories: I’ll let the image do the talking.

  • Follow my Exercise Routine: So, there is an exercise routine, and I hope to follow it through diligently and get in shape!
  • Learn three languages: The languages I have my mind set on are Russian (Cont. from last year), Korean (From my obsession with their dramas) and Spanish. I know the goal is high but so is my excitement.
  • Clear my Level 1 Certified Violinist Exams: If you follow me on any of my social media, you’d be aware by now that I play the violin. I had to put off my previous level 1 exams because of my professional exams and hopefully, I’ll get a chance to put my practice to test!

    I’ve seen the idea for jar of memories on Pinterest a few years ago and loved it! Maybe this is the year I start it 🙂

    Those are awesome goals! I started brushing up on my French a few months ago before my husband and I went to Paris, and I’m still doing a few lessons daily 4-5 days per week.

      Thanks, Brita! I hope that by the end of this year, you’ll be able to speak French fluently! xx

    nice I like how you continue instead of trying to start new things and leave those things hanging. I hope you complete everything you have set out to.

    For three years now I’ve been meaning to do a jar of memories and have never done it. Maybe this will be the year. Learning three languages is an awesome goal!

    Wow! Your goals are amazing! I haven’t really set any goals except I know I need to resume my healthy habits (like not eating sugar), that slipped a little during the fall and Christmas season. I also have a “joy jar,” which is like the Jar of Memories. I made it last year but didn’t put too much in it, so I can resume that habit as well! 🙂

    Wow learning 3 languages in a year?! That is rather a tall order, good luck! I too am thinking of doing the memory jar, such a lovely idea as you often forget about the little day to day moments that make you smile

    I love your to-do list. I would like to write in my journal everyday. The memories jar is a wonderful idea.

    I loooove the empty jar idea! I’m going to try it. I also started exercising a few months ago. I hated it at first, but once I started seeing results I liked it more. lol

    Ummm my goals this year are simple… Own my business by the years end and start a retirement savings plan

    I love the jar idea that sound like a nice walk down memory lane at the end of the year. My daughter plays the violin too, I hope she continues when she is out of school. I can’t imagine learning 3 languages at one time or in one year but it would be nice to atleast try my luck with one. Great goals and good luck on your certification.

    I believe that you can do it! Am also learning Hangul (Korean) because of my interest to their cultures and industry… little by little I could incorporate some of their phrases to conversation making it Hanglish (Korean-Emglish) conversation 🙂

    I think your goals are very well-rounded. We are going to do the whole write down 2 good things that happened and put it in a jar and read it on NYE.

    Your goals are unique! You are very talented. I tried to doing a similar joy jar idea last year. I really liked it, but I prefer now to do it on paper because the paper slips didn’t fit anymore in the jar I had. Good problem to have haha.

    You have some great goals planned ahead! I am learning a bit of Spanish this year this year as well. It’s such a beautiful language isn’t it! I love the ideal of warrior women Wednesdays, that is such a wonderful ideal. I will keep an eye out for your posts.

    Awesome goals! I learned Spanish while I was in university and it was the best thing I could have done 🙂 It was so, so hard but it was worth it! I gave it up after a year and I regret it so much. I’m currently trying to learn Italian 🙂 I also love the idea of the feature for your blog! I will be keeping an eye out for it 🙂
