My 2009 Resolution

Today is the 3rd day of a new beginning of 2009 and for the first time in my life, finally I decided my 2009 resolution.

Maybe because am getting older, or maybe because there are so many things happened in last couple weeks.

Whatever the reason – and I don’t want to find out what is the reason – I feel relief, that finally I have something which is not under “material” things.

So here is my 2009 resolution:

I’m the fans of procrastination as long as I can remember. I always find a reason to live with procrastination, until I watched Oprah’s show where Peter Walsh gave his advice of how to clean up “messy room”.

Then suddenly I remember my Things to Do List that listed in my “List of Best” which until end of 2008 still there in the “pending” item list, because of the procrastination effect.

Start today, I’ve followed Peter Walsh advice by creating my daily, weekly and monthly plan; hopefully by end of 2009 my 2007 and 2008 pending list will decrease together with the completeness of my 2009 list.

Same like procrastination, I am struggling with my “gross” a.k.a. my flabby tummy for almost a year and failed every time.

I’ve million reason of “gaining my gross” as much as my reason of not coming to gym. I paid a lot for my gym membership and also for personal trainer, but like my reason of procrastination, I also have my other reason of postponed my exercise.

So what is my 2009 goal for my beloved “gross”?

Well, this time, my main goal is back to my old habit, my yoga practice, my morning walk and run, and my gym. With the second goal is back to my favorite weight, 47 kg.

OMG, I just realized that even my 3rd resolution also have a connection with procrastination.

There are a lot of un-finished book, bracelet, necklace and crochet in my Pandora box, which are waiting for me to play with them.

Don’t ask me how all of that things end up in my Pandora box, since I always find a reason to put the things in to my Pandora box. Especially when the distraction was so intense, the distraction of the new beautiful things.

Therefore, today, I told myself, to not easily fall in love with new beautiful things. Like Peter Walsh’s statement in Oprah’s show, that before I buy the new one, I have to take out the old one from my Pandora box.

As Paulo Coelho’s written in Alchemist :

When you want something,
The whole Universe conspire
To help you realize your desire

This time, I believe that Universe will help me …

Your NY resolution is kinda similar to mine, except that I chose not to have any this year, for fear of not being able to meet any of them and end up feeling even more of a failure than I already am! LOL.

Lemme know how it goes with those resolutions, I hope this year will be a much more disciplined one!
