Weekly Tea Discussion: Choosing Hobbies Over Work

Books_Cups_Grass_Tea_Cup

I took a short vacation this past week and a half and although I didn’t leave New York, a nice staycation was just what the doctor ordered. I read, I wrote, I visited places that either were for the first time or a place I haven’t been to in a long time. The past few months I have been extremely stressed and my anxiety being at high measures. This little reprieve allowed me to recharge and get back in the swing of things.

Turning 30

Today’s my birthday! As the years went on and the slow trail of turning 30 was slowly approaching, in the back of my mind I thought (and was hoping) that this wouldn’t come. You hear all these stereotypes and advice on what you should have accomplished by the time you are 30. And when you look back on your life and see that you haven’t accomplished those said things, you assume you failed in life. Now, I’m taking back the number 30. Instead of looking back at what I didn’t do, I am looking towards the future and say what I am going to do. So here are 30 things I promise to do for myself:

1. Honesty is importantNo more holding my feelings in. It would be better for me and any relationships I have.

2. Move towards the future. Stop looking back to the past. It happened and there’s nothing to do to change it. All we can do is use it to learn for the future.

3. Try something new. Broaden my horizons

4. Pick up an old skill. Revisit a skill that I did in the past.

5. Fight for a work/life balance. Don’t let our jobs take over our personal lives. We need to know when we need to take a step back and fight for our social life.

Reading Challenge 2017

It’s that great time of year where we make our reading list and challenge ourselves to read more than we did last year. In 2016, I read 42 books! I read 12 more compared to 2015 so I improved a bit. This year, however, I am going to try to be a little more ambitious: I challenge myself to read a 100 books! By trying to change the outlook of this year, reading more books is a definite must and I think setting this goal will help do that.

So here is my reading list for this year. I only put 30 books but as the months go by, more books we’ll be added.

Want to try doing a reading challenge yourself? Why not try these various reading challenges to start off the New Year right?
