New Year, New Beginnings


Life may be unpredictable sometimes and plans doesn't always happen as we expect them to be.

But, this coming year I'll go easy with myself and choose goals that I meant to accomplish even if it won't be as many as years before. Last years might not be well for me but this coming year might be mine, so here's my goals/plans for the new year.

1. Character Development
2. Publish a Novel
3. Grow My Hair Long Again

A few goals but with a lasting impact for me because last year, my goals made it but with minimal effort and this time around I'll do my very best to accomplish them.

Last year, I only wish I'd loose weight, become a real writer, and grow strong in my faith in God. I achieved them but barely in effort except my quality time with the Lord Jesus Christ, I read my Bible in the last few years diligently. I lost weight too, from 62-64 kg to 50 kg this year. I was fat, I know, but it's so hard to loose weight because I'm a glutton. I prayed many times to God that I'd get thinner because I have been over-weight (in my opinion) and I got sick several times. I am happy about it but being ill is another thing. I may still want to drop two kilos (to be 48 kg) but it won't be a priority now.

Deep down I also wanted to change myself and ask myself often this time,

What's Your (My) New Year's Resolution?

1. Character Develpment (In Matters of the Heart)

I thought I was okay in my walk with Christ, I thought I was well but deep down my heart is still bitter.

The eyes are the windows of the soul and whatever fills the heart the mouth speaks. My eyes were blank like a black hole and I speak full of resentment/mistrust, as my way of escape to things. I know God is able to change me like He did before, I know He can snuff out the root cause of it to change me for the better.

This is my goal this year in my character development. With praying and fasting, my peace and the joy in my eyes shall return.

2. To Publish a Novel

Writing is my profession of choice, I never really wanted to work in a corporate world nor did I study writing but I was inclined to writing than I thought I would.

I started writing fiction ten years ago but I haven't publish a book yet. Well..almost, I tried to submit my initial entry last year but was rejected by the publisher. It hurts to be rejected and not properly told what went wrong with my book but I realized what went wrong and I prayed to the Lord to help me to publish one. I'll finish writing my manuscript this year, it was the first novel I finished writing and tried to edit before the laptop I used broke down. I am left with my phone but I'll finish writing it and publish it, although locally, because I'm still practicing to write an english fiction.

3. Grow Back My Hair Long Again


I cut more than 1 foot of hair five months ago because the colored part became super dry. I thought my hair was ugly so I chop it down. All of the colored part has been cut down and only the undyed part remains.

My hair was so short now. I once thought I'd look like a French girl if I cut my hair short but I looked like a french toast instead.

I was born with a thin straight hair they call Aurora hair/the sleeping beauty hair but it turned curly in my teens. I wasn't prepared to be curly but my mother said I looked more chinese in my straight hair. I halfly believe it will be straight again so I cut it down. Half of my hair is super straight and half is curly.

I'll grow them again and not color them again. I'll go natural and see if my hair gets healthier.

This line really made me laugh, I love your sense of humor. Well, I hope you achieve these goals in 2023. Growing your hair back out shouldn't be too difficult, you can do that while you focus on your other goals. If a publishing company doesn't take your book, there are many self-publishing options nowadays. I have several friends who self-publish on Amazon with pretty impressive success. I guess when you expand your potential customer base to whole world you are bound to sell some copies, particularly ePUB versions. Thank you for participating in this challenge, I wish 2023 success for you.

Thank you so much @justinparke 😸😸
Amazon will be my next goal but it will just be local for now. Thanks for the points tho, i didn't expect it. . .

Sometimes things won't work out of our expectations but behind that situation there is something better explanation to our question.

In the right time po everything will happen.

This is a beautiful message @jessmcwhite 💝 thank you! Merry Christmas even if it's late & may the Lord Jesus Christ bless the years ahead of you abundantly☺☺

I am happy to know that you are reading your Bible diligently, that is something missing in me.

Only Jesus can change us thoroughly so pray without ceasing that we may have the character of Jesus.

May you can publish your novel next year and making your hair long is so possible as long as you won't cut them again.

🤗🤗 you wrote everything in here, thank you so much for this😄🙏 i tried reading the bible thoroughly, much of it is for research purposes only. I'm kind of a logical person but last year i pour out all my emotions to the Lord and realized i was still human even if i'm less emotional. Thank you for your words💕💕 you sort it out for me, you have this gift of words in you and may the Lord Jesus Himself reveal this calling to you

Thanks for your compliment. Yes God can use us in different ways.

May your goals in life be realized with the guidance of the Lord.

Thank you for blessing me😊😊
