I was about to write my 2015 resolution list, when it came across my mind that I would be thirty by 2016. There are a lot of things that I wish I could do, and I thought that if I want to accomplish most of them, might as well start now.
So let’s call my project “Beth’s Journey to 30”.
Be a church ministry worker. This isn’t as impossible as it sounds, since my roots are all in the parish where I currently belong. I used to be a Youth minister, but somehow I felt that my spiritual life was drying out. I became an officer in the Evangelization ministry but it didn’t work out because I am usually physically incapable to be present at meetings. Now, there is a newly established ministry, Social Communications, which requires news writing and social media updates, for the parish newsletter. We already had our very first meeting, actually. What I am trying tp accomplish here is to stay in the ministry and be a useful servant of the Lord.
Publish a non-fiction book. I already have a book, a romance fiction that’s gonna be published this year (watch out for it this December), but what I would like to do is publish a non-fiction book. I already wrote If Only, my very own personal experience of being intubated (you can read about it on my Download’s page), and I am hoping to get it published.
Start a small, online business. I already have a business in mind – a clothing line. Since I love to dress up, I would very much like to turn it into business. Can you help me come up with a name? 😀
Learn and speak a foreign language. I already have background in Spanish, so this shouldn’t be too hard. I just need to have it mastered so I could read Noli Me Tangere in the original language it was written.
Go to places I’ve never been. May it be within the country or out, it doesn’t really matter. As long as it’s a good place to be.
Be a stockholder. This shouldn’t be hard, either, especially if I already have started with the business. I have a friend who could help me with this. Maybe he could help you too. Just visit him at http://www.dmarkcabz.wordpress.com.
Spend more time in girl bonding. This should be easy. I just need to clear my day from not-so-important stuff to be with my friends.
Read more self-help books. Honestly, being a bookworm that I am, my bookshelf doesn’t have so much book of this kind. May help me to understand myself more.
Do charity work. This one’s a bit tricky, because right now, I am the charity! Lol! Anyway, online stuff is so powerful that maybe I could lend help just by clicking away. 🙂
Find out who my true friends are. This, I think is the hardest of all. I might have already found two or three, but still, I never know.
I know I should not just stick with what my list says, but definitely, it’s a good starting point to do something meaningful with my life.
