Self-reflection in 2023

Assalamualaikum and hello guys!

It's been almost 4 years and 5 months since my last blog post, and today, I'm thrilled to be back writing on this platform.

In the past, I struggled with writer's block. I had so much to share, but whenever I sat in front of the computer, the ideas seemed to vanish into thin air, leaving me unsure of what to write.

Although it may seem overdue, I believe it's never too late to express ourselves and share our experiences.

Let's delve into my self-reflection in 2023, which can be divided into six aspects that have shaped my year;

1. Eat Healthy

In 2023, I embarked on a journey to prioritize my health and well-being.

I started cooking for myself. I focused on preparing clean and nutritious lunches, ensuring that every ingredient was wholesome and beneficial for my body.

I carefully controlled my sugar and salt intake, starting my day with a cup of coffee and opting for a cup of tea without sugar and with a refreshing squeeze of fresh lemon if I craved a drink at night.

I also established a routine of not eating after 8 pm and avoided fast food. Staying hydrated by drinking at least 2 liters of mineral water daily was also a priority.

2. More Family Time

Recognizing the significance of family bonds, I prioritized spending quality time with my loved ones in 2023.

I managed my time effectively to visit my hometown in Machang, Kelantan every two months, ensuring that I could connect with my roots and create lasting memories.

I actively participated in family bonding activities and cherished our vacations in Terengganu.

However, amidst the joyous moments, 2023 also brought profound sadness when my aunt, Bashariah Khamis, passed away on 20th June, 2023.

I had the opportunity to accompany her during her time in the hospital on 13th June, 2023. Witnessing her lying unconscious was an incredibly difficult experience.

Although accepting her passing was challenging, I found strength in embracing fate and continuing my own journey.

3. Self-Improvement

In 2023, I dedicated myself to personal improvement in various aspects of life.  I focused on time management, cultivating good attitudes and adding value to my personal growth.

By investing in my personal growth, I aimed to become a better version of myself and make a positive impact on those around me.

4. Learning New Skills

Driven by long-term goals, I made the decision to change my career path from the field of insolvency and winding up to auditing and accounting.

This shift aligned with my aspirations and provided me with an opportunity to acquire new skills.

I embraced the challenge of learning in my new field, recognizing the importance of continuous growth and adaptability.

5. Saving Money

Financial discipline became a priority in 2023. I consciously controlled my expenses, distinguishing between necessary purchases and indulgences.

As a form of self-reward, I allowed myself to buy things I truly desired. Additionally, I explored investment platforms that offered passive income opportunities, ensuring that my money worked for me.

I also dedicated time to studying different methods of generating passive income, expanding my financial knowledge.

6. Reducing Stress

To create a more balanced and fulfilling life, I actively worked towards reducing stress in 2023. I made a conscious decision to avoid taking on extra work that required overtime.

By managing my time efficiently, I completed my tasks promptly, allowing me to enjoy my free time. I engaged in activities that brought me joy, such as walking, writing and journaling, listening to my favorite podcasts, and watching movies or dramas.

Reflecting on the year 2023, I am proud of the personal growth and positive changes I have experienced.

Through prioritizing my health, strengthening family bonds, investing in self-improvement, embracing new career opportunities, practicing financial discipline, and reducing stress, I have embarked on a transformative journey.

As I move forward into 2024, I am excited to continue my pursuit of growth and share my experiences on this blog.

Thank you all for your patience and support. I'm excited to embark on this journey once again and share my thoughts and experiences with you.
Stay tuned for more updates!
