List, Tips and Tricks

It’s the time of the year when everyone, and I mean everyone, gets a pen and paper and starts making lists. A lot of people make resolutions, yearly bucket lists or even challenges for the year to come. I’m personally not a fan but I did make a 30 Things To Do Before 30 list so I will share my personal experience in making lists and how to stick to it. 1 – Be Realistic It’s so easy to make lists but let’s be honest with ourselves when writing it. What is your real goal? What do you plan to achieve? Think of these simple questions while making lists. Be sure that they are achievable and that you really want to accomplish this. 2 – Start NOW After making lists, it’s so easy to forget about it. Put it in post-its or stick on your walls to serve as daily reminders. As for me, goals #5, #7, #12, #15 and #27 are my current mains. This means I am personally exerting a lot of effort to …

Creating New Habits & Sticking to It!

Part of my Dirty 30 is a 130lb weight goal. This is a very difficult goal since I am not a very active person. To be able to successfully accomplish this goal, I know that I need to have an effective exercise habit. It’s fool proof, add more exercise in your life and you’ll surely end up losing a few pounds. But how do I create an effective exercise habit when I don’t like exercising even just a bit? I plan to start simple and follow these three simple tips on how to successfully create a habit. 1 – Start SMALL Don’t fill your plate with a lot of things, goals or ideas. Instead, commit to small things you can do every day that in turn will create the perfect foundation for habits. During the holidays, I went all “fit crazy” and decided to challenge myself to start my day by jogging three kilometers around our neighborhood park. It was a breeze during the start but as the days dragged on, three kilometers became such a …

Kat’s 5 Steps on How to Cope with Negativity

Professionally, 2015 was my lowest year. I was full of bad energy because I got jealous of my officemates who got promoted. It’s not my proudest moment but I’m glad I went through it. It made me a different person, a better person. I would like to share with you how I coped with negativity and hopefully it can inspire/guide you in whatever you might be going through. 1 – Accept things as they are When I first found out that others were promoted, I was shocked and I instantly felt jealous. I felt like they didn’t deserve it. I had a million theories on why they were chosen but never once did I think that they really deserve it. What I should’ve done: Congratulate them. Accept the fact that they got promoted and I didn’t. The moment that I felt like it would become something negative, I should’ve just raised my hands up in the air and waved them like I just didn’t care. 2 – Stop talking about it There was a lot …

10 Things I Want Every Young Girl to Know

Growing up is hard. Here are ten things I wish someone told me while I was growing up. Do things for yourself. This might sound so selfish but you’ll be happier in the end if you do things for yourself instead of doing it for others. Take care of your skin. You’ll thank me when you’re older. Moisturize, cleanse and exfoliate your face. Be loyal to your family. Never take them for granted. They will always be there for you, no matter what. Surround yourself with positive people. Don’t waste your time and energy on negative and useless things. Focus on the good and surround yourself with people who help you maintain a positive aura. Do your best in school. You probably won’t need everything you learn in school but studying well instills within you a sense of discipline that can never be taught elsewhere. Take care of your heart. Don’t just give it to anyone. Take your time and get to know yourself first before giving your heart away. You can only fall in love …

If I only had three months left to live, what would I do?

 I’d start by having a grateful heart. I’d be thankful to still be alive, even if I have only three months left, I’d make the most of it. I’d start to look at things differently and appreciate it more. I will start telling people that I love them. Sometimes I forget to say I love you. I tend to overlook saying it because I think that I still have tomorrow. I don’t say it enough because it’s overrated and not cool. I’d tell my parents that I love them and that I appreciate everything they have done for me. I’d tell my sister and brother that I love them and that they have a fruitful and blessed life ahead. I’d tell people I hold grudges against that I love them and wish them the best. I also would like to apologize to people that I may have hurt. Often times I don’t realize that I have already done something that has hurt others because I’m too focused on myself. I let my ego get in the way. It also wouldn’t hurt to hug …
