Just prove yourself right by believing in yourself and doing what you said you will do, doing what people said you can't do. Because you will surely find fulfilment in that.

Just finished work and decided to pay a visit to my gym and do a workout to Heart radio for a bit of research now I can’t move but I want to look my best for my photos as I’m running out of time #presenter #gym #gymmotivation

Thank you to NYLAG for coming to our office yesterday and running a financial literacy aka “Adulting” workshop for Make It Happen. The information provided to our boys and young men was key. #makeithappen2017 #wehealtogether #financialliteracy #adulting #healing

Last year it was #MakeItHappen2017. This was the year that taught me to take risks and leap with purpose. For this year, I want to focus that energy and #BeTheLight2018. What does it mean to be the light for myself, others, and my community? How? This will be the year I learn to live for more than just myself.

Last New Year’s Eve, I spent it alone in my apartment with half a bottle of wine. I had just finished watching yet another video on design and business when I poured myself another glass. All I could think at this moment in time was that I needed to find a way to catch up. I was suppose to be applying into a master program but instead, I switched to design. I told myself I needed to work twice, three times, four times as hard as I’ve ever worked. I told myself that I needed to work as hard as I can until I no longer have the urge to compare myself to anyone else. With a couple of minutes left until midnight, I turned up the volume on my Spotify playlist and poured myself one last glass. As the firework began to sound outside my room, I stared out the window, glass in hand, and said to myself, “Don’t worry. You’ll make it happen.” Fast forward to this New Year’s Eve and I am standing on a rooftop in Saigon with a glass of champagne in hand. With a couple of seconds left until 2018, I looked around at the amazing people I’m lucky enough to call my team and thought to myself— You did it. #makeithappen2017

This is the result of when you want to take a family photo and the brother wants to sleep already. 😀😁😃 2017 is a breakthrough year for us. My brother graduated at Level 1 SPED early this year. My sister finally started her mini baking goods business. And as for me, I got to meet Lee Dong Wook face to face in Taiwan. 😂😂😂On a serious note, I had 2 (super awesome) couple clients who entrusted me (with the help of my grandmother) in supplying their customized wedding rings. Yes, I officially entered the wedding industry. 💍💎 For orders and inquiries, send me a pm. 😉😃😁Hahaha!

Grateful and truly blessed beyond belief. It was truly #makeithappen2017 Thank you for an amazing 2017, Lord! ☝❤ Cheers to a blessed and amazing 2018! Happy New Year from our family to yours! 🎉🎊🎆🎇✨ #ThankYou2017 #HappyNewYear2018

Next year, I want to do more. I want to curate my craft so I told myself I'll finish atleast one new project a month. I want to read and work on myself more so I agreed on reading atleast one book a week. That'll be at least 52 books more than I read this year, sounds good enough to me. I'm already exercising 5 times a week right now, so why not exercise the full seven days? Why take a break from being healthy right? There's more, but the main thing to keep in mind is this-- new year resolutions don't work unless *you* do. Instead of saying what you want to do next year, start mapping out a plan for how you're going to make it happen. Make sure it's specific so you can keep yourself accountable and tell someone (or Instagram) about it so they can keep you accountable. New year, better you. Don't tell me WHAT you're gonna do, tell me HOW you're gonna do it. So what will it be? #makeithappen2017 👊🏼
