Happy New Decade! How amazing is it to be alive and experiencing life in a new decade! I’m still trying to wrap my head around being in 2020 because I can’t believe that 2019 is already gone. I’m still in shock and adjusting even though time is not waiting for me. January is already halfway gone and that’s a cue for me to get out of my seat and join the safari.
I have been thinking about what I want to do this year in order to be better in all sectors of my life and the one theme that keeps coming up is growth. My mantra in 2019 was #LIMITLESS and I was able to push myself to achieve things that I did not think I would. This year, I want to go beyond being limitless and push myself out of my comfort zone. I want to be the best version of myself that I have ever been. I want to work on my weaknesses such as social phobia.
I have been thinking about changing up my lifestyle. I have been doing my research about becoming a vegan. I came across a documentary, The Game Changers, on Netflix which really made me rethink my food choices. I am becoming more conscious about how my lifestyle impacts the environment. So far, I have stopped drinking cow milk and switched it up with soy, almond and coconut milk and I absolutely love these more than dairy. Coming from a background where eating meat is fervent, it’s definitely hard to make the changes and I am slowly tasting out vegetarian options and see whether that will work for me.
Fitness goals? Oh my! Being fit has always been a nightmare. I can’t remember ever being consistent with anything. I do walk a lot and eat a fairly clean diet but I still need to do more. One of my goals is to be more proactive not to loose weight -i’m okay with where i am- but to be fit. I’m definitely not one to swear by the gym because hello social anxiety but there are many other options like dance classes and a myriad of YouTube fitness channels. I personally love Popsugar Fitness videos.
In terms of my career goals, i’m excited to see what I am going to do. I am soon going to be done with my Masters classes and I still have to do an internship and complete my thesis by the end of the year. I’m also looking into becoming more consistent with my content output for Kendhistoires and do something with my acting skills. It’s definitely going to be a very busy year. I must say that content creation is really tasking and a labour of love.
To keep it short, I am excited to embark on my #2020Growth journey. I am keeping my mind open and ready to push myself beyond my comfort zone. I am ready to battle my anxieties and fears because isn’t that how we grow? The idea that I’ll have to work in a French company speaking French to clients and colleagues is already daunting or having to attend interviews and speak in French. I mean, at times I even forget how to speak English (lol) but that’s part of life huh!
I hope that this year and decade brings you so much love, happiness and growth.
